Yes I think you did take a photo with the cue mark Michael.
I remember seeing those when I videotaped tv programs to watch later. When I saw them I then got ready to fast forward 🙂

Cheers from me in New Zealand :-)

Just received my Tim Burtuns Batman and Batman Returns prints.
Yesterday I run reel 1 and 2 of Batman with my Elmo 16 CL Xenon and shortly before end of reel 2, the projector conked out.
Today I watched the last reel (reel 3) with the Elmo 16 CL Halogen.

I was a little bit disappointed, I have the S8 Trailer of Batman (it was released together with two 007 License to Kill trailers) and the color quality of the S8 print is a little bit better than the 16mm feature.

The super 8mm trailer is probably a dupe from a print and may have enhanced the color.

Dino...Val Kilmer looks like a teenager [Smile]

Dominique...I didn't realize you were into 16mm also...cool [Cool]

In celebration of the fantastic Golden State Warrior victory over the OKC Thunder Monday night...I watched my somewhat faded basketball movie One On One (1977). Robbie Benson is no Steph Curry...but his dribbling and shooting is pretty convincing for the movie.

Janice, I have actually many 16 mm films but "only" two sound projectors and no good 16 mm splicer or large rewinder so I must admitt that I have been neglecting this gauge for a while. When I moved (10 years ago), I had to put most of my films in different place that where I live, and the majority of the films that are stored are my 16 mm ones as they need more room.

Continental Divide (1981) was one of John Belushi's last movies. It's a very tame movie by Belushi standards, but a cute story and the music score is excellent. A very feel-good movie, but I get a little teary-eyed when Helen Reddy sings the ending song "Never Say Goodbye." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThA5uZEg6nY

Last night I watched Sidney Poitier in his Oscar winning role of Homer Smith in Lillies of the Field (1963). This was one of two films I received yesterday. I was very happy with the picture quality and sound. A truly delightful movie.

 -

The second film I received was Multiplicity (1996) It stars Michael Keaton and Andie MacDowell. This was a clever and entertaining movie that really shows off Michael Keaton's talents. Unfortunately the 4x3 pan and scan version doesn't do the special effects justice. It frequently cuts off charaters on the sides. Never the less the quality and color of this print is very good and still very enjoyable to watch.

Just been running through some of my Ealing and Blackpool buys. A colour Pepe Le Peu cartoon, as described it has excellent colour, a B&W sound Inspector Willoughby cartoon "Phoney Express" (I actually managed to buy this also in Super 8, though that is colour silent) a 1945 Castle Films newsreel review of the year and a reel of silent "offcuts" from the LWT TV series of Dick Turpin. The last is a mixture of single & double perf stock (which is why I failed at first to notice it was on the spool unrewound from its last showing) that has some faded shots and some pristine colour.

All in all a good collection from the events.

Saw several Laurel and Hardy film:
1) Blotto
2) Oliver the Eight
3) Going bye-bye

All are 16mm reels and with sound. FYI- I got these films for my condo organization and showed them. They are free loan films from the Enoch Pratt- library. Over 2,000 16mm films.
They are available through interlibrary loan. Some prints are better than others. Don't expect a prefect print. Some are get; others not so great. Also, All films have "Public Performance Rights".

I was prepared for the worse as the film I bought for "soundies" turned to be when I cleaned it with Filmguard a redish cartoon. Well, the cartoon is good, the colour went back with the filter and there is even a song in :-) Other films : a 1930's documentary of Palestine, then a film (from the early sixties ?) about Israël (it was interesting to see the changes with the preceeding reel). All these were in English. I screened also two films in French : a newsreel (received from David Guest at Blackpool) ans a documentary (in black and white) about Rwanda.

I screened a print I just received from Denmark. Falling in Love (1984) starring Robert Deniro, Meryl Streep, Harvey Keitel, and Jane Kaczmarek. Color and sound very good. The audio track is in English with Danish subs. This was the first film I've bought that arrived on cores instead of reels. At first I wasn't sure what to do...but I found some assistance in a thread here on the forum and got the two cores transferred. [Smile]

Last night Darrin and I watched my 16mm copy of Continental Divide (1981). It stars John Belushi and Blair Brown. Darrin had never seen this movie before. Despite the print color turning...with a filter it was very watchable...sound and picture quality excellent.

After watching two footbal playoff games I was ready to set down to a film last night. A generous bowl of hot buttered popcorn in hand...I fired up my Elmo 16CL and watched Time After Time (1979). Malcolm McDowell, Mary Steenburgen, and David Warner are great and the filming in my native San Franciso makes this movie a favorite.

What can I say... I just love 80's movies. Last night I watched Victor / Victoria (1982). James Garner was always one of my favorite actors. Julie Andrews never sounded better and she and Robert Preston made for a very funny pair. The print I have is in excellent condition and a fun watch. [Cool]

Ive got a backlog of several features that ive bought recently that I haven't had the chance to screen - its finding the time to give them a clean and the run them on my bell and howell TQ1 - the films in question are - Robert Shaw in Swashbuckler (scope), Roy Scheider in The Last Embrace, Charles Bronson in The Valachi Papers, Tom Selleck in Lassiter, Anthony Newley in Mr Quilp, Farah Fawcett in Sunburn, Charlton Heston in The last hard men and Robert Redford in Little fauss and big halsy. Still - when I eventually watch them - i'll enjoy screening them.

Janice,

Agreed, I mirror your review.
This is a great film with a terrific cast, story and an absolutely gorgeous print on 16mm.
NO DOUBLE ENTENDRE INTENDED.

Red Fox printed the complete feature on Super 8mm sound too, but 16mm would be my choice.

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great
hobby that we love!

Just as a try out after fitting a 4.8w 12v LED (the sort used in down lighters) powered externally to my B&H 2962 I watched an episode of "Catweazle" (Castle Suburac) a 2ft picture projected onto a putty coloured wall.
Sorry no pictures, but it has always been a bluish print and using a cool white LED it looked even bluer. Np pinking as on Agfa Gaevert stock. The picture was brighter than I had thought/hoped. I tried this as I hope to transfer some film to DVD and didn't want to use the 250w lamp. Now I'm wondering if I might use this set up more if I don't want a larger picture.
