Great screenshots, superb print, Empire and the original Star Wars are the only two i like, Empire being, (IMO), the best of them all. I cant say any of the other star wars films are for me.

I agree Tom. Once the Ewoks made an appearance in "Return of The Jedi" things went down hill [Smile]

However the "Phantom Menace" was not bad and later bought the Scope "Pod Race" from Derann and still have it included on a Scope reel of films. I was later lucky enough to be given the feature on 35mm.

After the "Phantom Menace" I lost track of the others, and at the cinema out here they did not do well. I felt people had got tired of the hole Star Wars thing. The "Force Awakens" being one of the worst. I thought after that one I had enough, but would give it one more chance with "Rogue One" which I thought was a big improvement, but have not watched any others after that one.

I hope one day that Disney will give the fans a original edit release of the first two films, "A New Hope" which I still call just Star Wars and of course the "Empire Strikes Back", as Spielberg did just that, giving the fans the option with his release of ET onto Blu-ray, anyway Disney would be on a winner if they followed suit.

Hemo the Magnificent
Yep The complete two reel high school educational film from Bell laboratories pink fade easier to watch especially if you’re squeamish super sharp clarity and the print in good condition all the way through only the pink fade is the problem

While trying to find something Else that I was not able to find I came across these reels that I had stored away in a can and wondered what is this only to my surprise and delight I remembered having it after I discovered it today.

Chip,

Director Frank Capra made: "Hemo The Magnificent," and "Our Mr. Sun," that are my favorite and most entertaining above than the Disney's.

Graham,

I'm confident that your "Empire" print is definitely an LPP.

A good friend and I determined that the early LPP Kodak's were printed in '81-'82 without the LPP markings, overlapping the tail end of the Kodak SP's.

Making this LPP print one of the first on 16mm, because Empire was released in 1980.

It's an old, beat up TV print with VS, and rather grainy for a studio original, but Humphrey Bogart in the 1943 "Sahara" is just a great movie.

Did one of my smoothest manual changeovers in history between reel 2 and 3. Audience in attendance: zero. Drat.

Two documentaries (in French) : "Attention aux vipères" (Beware Of Vipers), the title tells everything : a well made educational film about...vipers and "Au pays des buveurs de sang" (In The Land Of The Blood Drinkers"), a film about animals Hunting and about a Massaï tradition.

A black and white musical miniature : The Ouverture Of William Tell. The copy is negative but since it's a cartoon it doesn't really matter.

I watched Lassiter (1984) starring Tom Sellack last night. It had been over a year since I had watched this print. Great color and a good cast.

I looked up your movie Dominque in IMDB. The poster showed a guy with his arm in a lions mouth [Smile] I love circus movies...IMDB said it was a comedy... Was it?

 -

I watched Dear Heart (1964). My son doesn't like this movie...but he was out on a Friday night date... so I took advantage and picked a movie I really enjoy!

Yes, Janice, it's a comedy. The translation of the title would be The Tamer. A clumsy man inherits by mistake of a circus but the condition is to perform Something. I like those pre-war films when people didn't know what was going to happen.

Another great print Janice, with good contrast. Not heard of this one either, but with Glen Ford and Angela Lansbury, it should be worth watching. So many old films that never get an airing these days on TV.

Robert...You are correct that many older movies are seldom shown on TV anymore. Here in the U.S. the cable channel TCM (Turner Classic Movies} plays older and classic movies regularly. My mom who is 92 watches TCM daily and says they also show silent films on occasion.

Fortunately over this side of the pond we have Talking Pictures TV, showing films that we would otherwise not see.

It's getting darker earlier this time of year which means I can start watching my films earlier too. Last night I picked Continental Divide (1981) with John Belluchi and Blair Brown. My print has faded, but by adding filters some color is restored. I still very much enjoy this film.

I've been on a roll in watching my films. I'm making up for not watching very many films during the summer. Tonight it was Sidney Poitier in Lilies of the Field (1963). I was in high school when this movie came out and I saw it in the theater. This is a great B&W print with excellent contrast and sound.

Thank you for the nice comment Bill. My collection of films isn't big compared to most collectors...but they are all movies that can watch repeatedly...and I do [Smile]

Mississippi Burning, full uncut version,
Received this item today at a fantastic price, (just goes to show how often prices are just made up out of thin air).
This is simply a very well made film by an excellent British director, Alan Parker and the cast is made up of some of the best actors. Tense, atmospheric and never a dull moment.
This print is like new, it is in excellent shape throughout and is probably, price wise, by far the best purchase of my 16mm collecting to date. These images are from reel one only as i couldn't be bothered to take any more, this is a film that requires the audience to watch it, not play about with a camera all the way through.These images really do not do it justice, the greens are deep as are all the colours.

Accused (1936) an American remake (with Douglas Fairbanks Jr and Dolores del Rio) of a French film (Accusée, levez-vous) I own in 9.5. My copy has, luckily, a French soundtrack.
