Well I guess it's too late for a NSFW warning on this one...

Regarding to that theme NSFW in accordance to the " Ricochet", I apologize for that. Sometimes when I screen 16mm film, I get in such an emotional and ecstasy mood, which causes postings like that.

I hadn't watched a film in over a month...but finally fired up the Elmo 16CL last night. I watched Shoot the Moon (1982) starring Albert Finney, Diane Keaton, and a very young future Robocop star... Peter Weller.

I watched my recent purchase of Dear Heart (1964) again and this time shot some screen captures. This copy has some thin black lines on all reels...but they aren't too distracting. I was wondering...when was the last time you saw an elevator attendant?

I am not a technical repair man by any stretch of the imagination.If my projector went "bang" that would be it... another search on ebay or a visit to David Guest's table at Blackpool.

However,inspired by Tom P in Plymouth's recent delve into 16mm, I decided I wanted to crank up the 16mm projector that I have had for years but had lay dormant for a long time due to a dodgy piece of wiring in the electric system in the back. So I put my fears aside, contacted a friend who lives at the other side of the Pennines who can repair anything from 8mm to 35mm (don't know if he has dabbled with a 70mm... but he might have) explained what I wanted to do and would it be okay? Taking his advice I did what I had to do. And......BINGO ! It worked! One of those beautiful solid Bell & Howell Filmosound 623 machines built like a tank...... complete with valves!

So, tonight, I had my first 16mm film show for several years and it worked a treat!
First it was a couple of Woody Woodpecker cartoons "Bat's In The Belfry" and "Fowled Up Falcon." Both black and white even though the credits said "color by Technicolor," Then it was the first 50 minutes of "The Towering Inferno" (flat and colour fading.... but who cares,for the price I paid for it!) and then a fairly recent purchase, an episode of Sgt.Bilko (Phil Silvers) in "Bilko's Casino"

Looking forward soon to seeing one of the few full length features I have on 16mm!

I just received an episode of Superman 1953 with George Reeves. In this episode in addition to Reeves playing Clark Kent and Superman...he also plays a thug that undergoes plastic surgery to look like Superman. Unfortunately his character sounds more like a punch-drunk fighter and has to undergo speech therapy. It's actually pretty funny. The whole caper is designed to pull off a 2 million dollar robbery and blame it on Superman.

Yes Tom this print was in very good condition...no lines at all and splices only where commercials played. No Lois Lane in this episode however.

Tonight we watched the excellent political thriller No Way out,
This is a film i have only seen the trailer for until tonight.
Dave Guest had a copy and sold it to me for a very good price, i am pleased to have got this one as Gene Hackman is one of my favourite actors.
It is also a coincidence that three of our 16mm features purchased in the last 6 months star Kevin Costner. I keep my fingers crossed that a copy of The Untouchables may one day find its way to me.

Tom, I haven't seen this movie, but sounds like a good cast and a great looking print.

Nice one Tom. I remember speaking to David Guest earlier this year and he mentioned he had No Way Out for sale. Should of taken it when I had the chance. The colours look great and what a cast.
Enjoy:)

I've been meaning to post some of the films I've been watching!
Shall get on it.

Good fortune indeed Tom. It's all good, glad you have it and thanks for sharing.

Well I've finally got round to watching my copy of The Deer Hunter in Scope. FIVE reels, 4 x 1600 and 1 x 800, my poor projector was put through its paces.

The film's on Eastman stock and as you can see the colours have shifted towards the pinkish reds.
Strangely though the first few minutes has good colour as can be seen in the first two frames.
The second reel had a couple of green emulsion lines which came and went.
Overall I enjoyed the film and was nice to finally watch a film in Scope.

Great titles to own Can, aside the colour shift the print looks in very good condition. [Wink]

Thank you Robert and Tom. Overall I'm happy with the print, just wish one film did not have to take up so much space. [Smile]

Yesterday, two Algerian shorts from the early '70 in French and set in France. Fading coulours but still very watchable. Then, a reel with extracts from French musical films from the 30's and 40's.

Steve, regarding your DAWN OF THE DEAD and CARRIE prints...I noticed both look letterboxed and without wear. Have these been sourced from BluRay and printed by Marco in Italy?
