Tonight we watched my very nice print of Kramer vs. Kramer (1979). Although very heavy subject matter...this "best picture" Oscar award-winner is movie making at the highest level. The story...the writing...the acting...the directing...and the music top-notch.

That truely is a stunning print Janis. I remember seeing this in the pictures when it first came out out. Excellent.
We are looking forward to our latest additions soon to arrive. Dances with wolves, witness and a scope copy of waterloo. Cant wait.

Witness. one of my favourite 80s movies and thanks to a forum member here, i now have my own full feature copy. I never thought that would happen,
The print is on Agfa stock so superb quality is guaranteed and the image is as pin sharp as sharp can be. The sound is, as always on 16mm optical, stunning with great clarity and bass.
I bought this at an excellent price and yes, there are some minor base line black lines but for most of the film they are hardly noticeable, i am very pleased with all my 16mm buys and am very happy that i changed my mind about getting shot of all my 16mm and sticking with 8. Super 8 is my main stay but no serious collector can ignore what is available on 16 and in both LPP and Agfa non fade stock. Simply superb and better value for money,
This film, IMHO, is one of Harrison Fords best movies, Believe me, as always, these images do not do this print any justice what so ever, the film is bright, vivid colours and crystal clear [Wink]

Excellent screenshots there Tom, you really seemed to have mastered the art of taking them. That is a superb print, and as you say, often the photos don't do the film justice, so that must be breathtaking.

Tonight's screening is a real classic; Ursula Andress, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in 'She'. This would have been no 2 on my list of most desirable prints. Who would have thought back in 1965 when I saw it on the big screen that all these years later I would have a copy. I wouldn't have if it wasn't for the extreme generosity of friend and former forum member, Hugh Scott, who gave it to me when he obtained an IB Tech print.

Yesterday I projected my Agfa print of "Rituals" - 1977 - by Peter Carter.
One of my favorite movies which combines the slasher-horror genre with the survival thriller, I would call ´em also as a modern adventure.
You will find also a great cast, which do a fine acting.... Hal Holbrook, Lawrence Dane, Robin Gammell...
A very emotional film to me....
Enjoy the images.

I haven't mastered the art of screenshots like Tom, Janice, and Holger. Tonights viewing was Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn in 'Ulysses' (1954). The print is on SP stock, which goes a golden brown, but still some decent colour left, though colour or no colour has never stopped me from enjoying any film.

Thanks Tom; I find a mobile phone gets better results than a digital camera.

Robert, I like your pictures too !
These pictures which I have used, was shot with my cell phone.
And there was so many images, which I couldn´t use for this posts, because of a bad quality...very blurry...
You only see the suitable ones :-).

Watched this episode at long last, bought it a few weeks ago now but it wasn't the episode i should have ordered, a slip up on my behalf, but its a good un. As you can see, (although these images are nowhere near as good as what you see), the quality is top notch, Pin sharp, superb colours and excellent sound. Originally intended to be Dennis Waterman's last it ends with his character Terry, having a falling out and quiting as Minder to Arthur Daley and as you see in the last screenshot, this was due to be his departure from the series but he stayed for a further couple of years.
These programmes were noted for there guest stars and this episode is no exception with two excellent old British stars in some of there last roles,
Kenneth Cope, (Marty from Randell and Hopkirk) and Ronald Fraser, well known British actor, playing the role of Goddard.
In this episode,
Private investigator Caroline Selby seeks Arthur's help in locating eccentric recluse and inventor Albert Goddard, who has come into an inheritance. Seeking a rake-off, Arthur acts as go-between, installing Albert in a 'safe house' - rather against his will - and trying to palm off one of the inventions as his own. The finder's fee is, however, paltry compared to the sum involved. Chisholm, meanwhile, finds he has literally been 'stitched up' on a visit to his tailor.

That is a superb print Tom, with perfect colour. The screenshots are superb as well. It may not be the episode you originally wanted, but looks one worth having.

Although i am not a huge fan of Mash, this episode came up for sale on an old Paul Foster list when i first came into 16mm way back.I was hoping for one of the early series as these were by far the best, however, this episode is one of the latest in the last series, originally bought in order to have something to show.
This one is episode number 250, Series 11, (the final series), originally aired on January 3rd 1983. I was intending to view this tonight with an intention of selling it but to my surprise after a clean up, this reel is in mint condition with no scratches to be seen anywhere and the colour has no fade so i am assuming this to be an Agfa print. This is the first time i have put this reel through a projector for around 8 years.
This episode,
"U.N., the Night and the Music"
Three U.N. delegates come to the 4077th and make a lasting impression on members of the camp, while B.J. treats a patient whose leg injury may require an amputation.

Looks a great print Tom; i'm not a fan, and think I only watched one complete episode; i'm only familiar with two of the cast, Alan Alda, and Harry Morgan, who had the distinction of not only being in 'The Glenn Miller Story', but with the real Glenn Miller in 'Orchestra Wives'.

I would think it would be a good seller, especially if you use those screenshots.
