Tonight was a big viewing for us. This is a film i really do enjoy although unfortunately, this one appears to be possibly a TV cut as it is edited for violence which, with this film, makes the whole viewing a bit dampened, especially as the 600ft Super 8 version has most of the bits in it that are edited out of this feature, However, what you do you want? The 30 minute super 8 version with a fading image but with the blood n guts in, or this two hour scope version with excellent image and colour, a few censored bits, and in this case, (and i knew this upon purchasing) a few jumpy bits where there is some damage on reel two, and at the very start of reel one?
In my case, i will now buy the Blu ray uncut edition as all the super 8 ones are now fading, (the one i have for sale on ebay is one of the much better ones) and i dont know when a full uncut theatrical version will show up on 16mm.
So, overall, we had a good viewing tonight of a classic Eastwood western.
It's great to see this on the big scope screen though.

Hi Tom,
good looking pictures. This is a movie I have not seen for years.
With Clint Eastwood an entertaining evening is safe :-).

Yesterday my projector have had the pleasure to produce:
Skull-A night of Terror or also known as Don´t turn out the Light.
This is a little amiable canadian horror-,action-exploiter of mine.
A canadian production from 1987 by Robert Bergman.

The Print:
This is an ex-rental razor-sharp AGFA print with almost no wear.
It looks like that this print was not lend really often, under my opinion, this movie didn´t hit the flavour of a big audience :-).

The story: Two police officers escort a violent prisoner and his companions to a jail. While the drive over land, they get into an ambush and the criminals get free. They escape to a farm house in which the family of one of the escorting police officers lives.
If you assume, that the bad guys do held the police officer´s family hostage and this police officer get on a deadly rampage to wipe them out one by one, to safe his family, you are right :-).

This is no award-worthy movie, but a real entertainy bad ass flick.
Enjoy the images.

Last night we viewed this excellent action packed,fact based war film, many of its actors went onto become big cinema and TV stars including, Woody Strode, Harry Guardino, Robert Blake, Norman Fell, Abel Fernandez, Gavin MacLeod, Harry Dean Stanton, and Martin Landau. A good b/w print with some light wear mainly at the start and end of the reels.

Hi Tom,
After Tuesday I'm on my 6 week break - and ive still got 7 or 8 16mm features to watch - so looking forward to that. High Plains Drifter looks like a great print - a shame its edited for TV - I try to avoid those prints if I can as I can always get uncut prints on blu ray and project via my NEC LCD projector linked to my Yamaha Sound Processor.

“DAWN OF THE DEAD and CARRIE were not shot in scope “

Right. I mentioned the pics of Steven’s prints he posted were letterboxed (not scope) which is unusual for 16mm prints of flat titles. The fact that they were both letterboxed 1:85 flat prints, both lowfade, and both seemingly lab new made me question if they were “reel” 16mm prints, struck from pure film elements, or if they were struck recently by Marco in Italy from a Blu-ray or DVD (which seems more likely to me judging from the pics)

Steven, care to confirm this?

Out of curiosity if films are struck from a Blu Ray or dvd source how is the sound transferred? Is it optical or magnetic in those cases?

The guy who makes these digital to 16mm print strikes an optical soundtrack on the prints.

Sorry Chaps,
High plains drifter [Wink]
As it happens i have now gone through the film foot by foot, done a few repairs and it now looks better, (after a firmguard clean), and also flows through much better without all the jumpy bits. so all in all, things are now much better. Still TV edited but one way or another i will sort that. [Wink]

Looks like rather than answer my query about whether his 16mm DAWN OF THE DEAD and CARRIE prints were blu ray to film kinescopes from Marco in Italy, Steve decided to delete those posts with the pics of them. (shrug)

I do hope, if people are making complete features using this process, that that info is being disclosed if they sell the print. I'd be pretty upset if I paid for a lowfade title and it showed up and was a bluray to film transfer.

Graham,

Fantastic images and this print appears to be on LPP stock.

Empire is my favorite of all SW sequels.

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

Thanks Everyone.

There is nothing on the edge of the film to indicate its LPP, someone did suggest to me it could be a technicolor print. I don't really know. I assume its origin was a pan/scan print for TV transmission years ago. I must admit I enjoyed watching this original edit, than the later Blu-ray taken from its re-release print shown at the cinema in the late 1990s.

A couple more from that night....
