I agree with David. I loved this film when it came out...and then it just disappeared from public view and consciousness. A really neat idea carried out nicely. Good cast, too. And a great score. It would make a good 40 minute digest, if anyone could find good pre-print material.

Recouperating from the mother of all colds, I am slowly beginning to watch films again.
One of the films I have seen are I Ought To Be In Pictures from a play by Neil Simon. It stars Walter Matthau, Ann-Margret and Dina Manoff.

I have been unable to find any marking that reveals what kind of stock it is, but it must be some kind of LPP as the colours are stunning.

Love those Neil Simon adaptions ... Not one of them has disappointed me yet. Anyone have this for sale?

Next I saw Jerry Lewis in The Geisha Boy from 1958.
This was also the first film of Suzanne Pleshette (and Harry Hare).
It also containes a funny scene where Sessue Hayakawa spoofs his role from the previous year in The Bridge On The River Kwai.

The copy is LPP from 1988 and the colours almost look like Technicolor.

Saw an old, stripey and a bit splicey 3x1600' film I got for free. The Thief Who Came to Dinner. A decent enough film and the lovely Jacqueline Bisset isn't too wrong

Sundays screening in our club was a 16mm feature of The Changeling. Quite red, but overall people thought it was more than good enough (meaning it looks a bit better on screen than photo). George C. Scott --- Great actor

The Thief Who Came To Dinner ages since I watched that. A nice little film to pass a hour or two.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

Watched 'The Long Day Closes'. A whimsical piece about a boy growing up and the sights and sounds around him. My film book gives it five stars and calls it unmissable. Not sure I'm 100% with them there but it's enjoyable and a lovely print.

Neat Educational Film shot in Ontario from 1971.
HELP IS
Kind of a first aid/drivers ed/Ontario highways promo.
You know things are not going to end well for the teens out for their drive.
Has all the prerequisite gore, including a sucking chest wound!
One of the fun things in collecting 16mm is that you come across stuff like this.

Hi Terry,

I couldn't agree more, I have a few St. Johns Ambulance educationals and they do get quite graphic. I bet it's to scare the audience careful on the gravity of reckless driving etc... Thanks for sharing and hope you tracked down that last FilmGuard from Cinematronics in Toronto [Smile] !!!

Cheers,
Elyas

Hi Elyas
St John Ambulance was involved in this one. I'm sure the ones you have are similarly entertaining.

I do still have to get in contact with Cinematronics - it seems extra cash goes always goes to films!!

Cheers
Terry

Hi Terry,

so sorry for the late response. Not on here as much lately [Frown] ... I totally second that it gets quite expensive, this celluloid addiction. I do believe Cinematronix has another bottle in stock so go for it soon. Lemme know if there's any more information you'd like and have yourself a great weekend [Smile] !!!

Best,
Elyas

I watched Baby Boom (1987). This is one of my favorite 80's films with a great cast....Diane Keaton, Sam Shepard, Harold Ramis, James Spader, Mary Gross, and Pat Hingle. This is one movie I never get tired of watching [Smile]

Hi Vidar,

as always, stunning copies [Smile] !!! I also watched and converted to digital ( not so well, it's a work in progress and getting better by the day nonetheless) a few prints. Please critique and hope you are all having an excellent start to the week [Big Grin] !!!

Best,
Elyas

Last night I watched my recently acquired print of VALLEY OF THE GWANGI in Tech. It has a few splices here and there and some lines, but otherwise it's a nice print.

I finally decided to dare to project my only VS infected film. I filmguarded several times, in hope to maximize the risk of contagion. Yesterday, I even "clean" it with Detol. So, the film (a compilation of soundies I originally bought to reperfor to 9.5 as the picture is mirror reverse) ran well, except for three small sections (a few seconds each time) on three different songs. The "black and white colours" vary from one song to another so the filmstock may also be different and all the film may not be affected by VS or at different levels. but of course, I will leave it as it is. I put the film back in my bathroom (nobody has never so far asked why I was keeping a vinegar smelly reel of film there), away from my other films.
