It is definitely not brand new Tom...but it is in terrific shape. There's a green line in the first 10 seconds of the beginning...then it's clean of lines throughout the rest of the reels. I don't regret picking up my first odd reels copy of this film however. I've had many enjoyable viewings using a filter to improve the color and watching the equivalent to the 1st reel on DVD. However, this print is like getting an entire new movie. I think only collectors understand the kind of excitement that comes with finding a print or a better print you've been looking for a long time. [Smile]

First a silent American film, Sock Exchange. Almost no flickering, probably because there are not many too bright whites on the picture. Then a French sound documentary, Suite française. They compare historical famous French faces with "today"'s ones (I would say the film is from the '40s). Interesting but certainly not politically correct, for obvious reasons, in today's (2019) standards.

Two small musical reels : La caissière du Grand Café (a song by the famous Fernandel) and Songs Of The Hills.

Last night I watched The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming! (1966). This is the second print I have of this movie. The first print was fairly faded so I bought another one. The second print has much better color however one of the reels had a green scratch on it. So I assembled the best reels out of the two prints:) I use filters on my projector in various combinations to get as much color out of the film as I can. I just love this movie and so happy to have it on 16mm.

I generally don't like bidding for films on Ebay... I never win [Frown] But Nine to Five (1980) came up and this was a movie I really wanted. I decided to be brave and join the bidding war and bottom line I WON!. Just got the movie and screened it last night. A great print... no missing scenes.

Last night i viewed one of my favourite films, Mississippi Burning. Gene Hackman being one of the best Actors ever, (IMO) [Wink]
Not sure if this film is in the thread projectors in movies, but as the images show, theirs one in there.

Janice, I advise you gixen.com. This free application places bids at the last moment.

Yesterday night, two reels made by a ex-projectionnist who used to digest musical films by keeping the songs of the films and some dialogues. One of the choosen film, L'œil en coulisse (1953) has less musical moments but has a story set in a radio station so it's interesting to to see the backstage of it and some imitations of celebrities from the '50s. Second, digested film was Coeur-sur-mer (1951), with the (at that time) famous singer André Claveau.

Had the day off work today, so I closed the blinds, and put on my new mint condition print of Kill Bill vol. 1.

That's a great find Svein. Do you have Vol 2 to go with it?

Hi Tom, I wish I did... I think it will be hard work locating one of the handful of prints that are out there... Hopefully I'll find one... For now, I'm having Marco make me a trailer for KB2 to have in the intermission between reel 1 and reel 2/3 (reel 2 and 3 are spliced together as one), so I only have one reel change.
