Hello everyone!
I recently inherited my father's projectors and films and wanted to collect some of my favorite films with L&H being one of them. I've managed to acquire most of the ones I really love but for some reason The Music Box is one I haven't seen anywhere in the few months I've been looking.
If anyone has a print (with sound) for sale I would love to take it off your hands, even if it's not a great print. I'm not interested in the silent version.

I'm also looking for Chickens Come Home in 16mm as well!

I also need a scope lens but considering the price of the few I've managed to find one might be far out of my price range, I only have a few scope prints so I'm not sure if the high price would be worth it for me. Just thought I'd throw it out there just in case someone has one that's not insanely expensive.

Thank you,
Mac

Mac, too late now, but a 16mm print with music track of "Big Business," missing the end title, was just on eBay for $75. Tons of Super 8 or 8mm silent copies of this are around, but the music track version is harder to come across.

I'm still on the look out for a reasonably priced feature or two in scope. [Wink]

Mark, I do have a Super 8 projector but it's not in working condition. I haven't tried to figure out if it's just an old bulb, or what the problem is. I have a working 16mm projector and many more 16mm than 8mm films so I figured I would just try for that instead.

I should break out the old Super 8 and see if I can get it working, since there's plenty of (and more affordable) prints of the Music Box around.

Cheers.

Hi Mac, I ran my 16mm print of Big Business tonight as my internet was off till after 12.

It has a few lines and the odd splice etc but runs OK on a CL.

I hope you can pick one up as I have to say its the best L+H print I`ve seen on film, stunning.

They are about your side of the water as this is where I got mine from.

Mines polyester so I`d guess an acetate one will look even better.

Good luck.

Best Mark.

While I think most of the Blackhawk Laurel and Hardy prints are very good indeed the thing I find annoying is the lack of the original titles.

That's the one thing I didn't like about Blackhawk Films, the same with Walton.

It is very hard to get all original title cards with Laurel and Hardy 16mm prints -- nearly impossible, actually, except in a few rare cases, such as a select few from Film Preservation Associates. Both Blackhawk and Film Classics only included title cards where the M-G-M logo was not present. At best, you get "L and H in" as a remade card, followed by original titles. With CHICKENS COME HOME, the title being sold in that eBay auction, both Film Classics and Blackhawk replaced all the cards.
