Check this one out! (He has four titles list) Obviously he can't make up his mind if it's black and white or color, despite the fact he claims to have watched it. Probably thru "Rose tinted glasses perhaps? [Confused]

Hi Keith,

I think if you look very closely, you will see a full stop after the word 'white'.

Therefore I read it that the actual film in in monochrome, but the box is very colourful. Yes?!?!

Certainly reads very oddly if you don't happen to spot that full stop, though.

Valves and celluloid - a great combination!
Early technology rules OK!

David, Yes, you're absolutely right. I didn't "spot the dot". It just struck me as funny, when I first read it [Smile] (Sorry forgot the Full Stop)......

Kewl! But it's most likely not even an 8mm-print: The sentence "It measures 5-1/4" square" sounds more like it comes on older floppy disks and is for both 8bit and 16bit computers [Big Grin] [Eek!] [Razz]

Yes Mark, it's a good job that it's not "The Little Mermaid" or she could end up "sleeping with the fishes" [Big Grin]

Didn't know where to post this.

It's not a funny listing on Ebay, but a very interesting one. Although the projector isn't from Lumiére and is not from 1900 like the title says.

It's a Kinéclair from around 1910.

Tony,

LOL! Just two questions:

1. Is this a sound film? [Razz]
2. Just which projector in the world runs 6.35mm gauge? (the actual width of reel-to-reel tape) [Big Grin]

It was originally listed in the film category, and described as a movie. After I wrote the seller the category was changed and the description slightly changed.

Occasionally, eBay searches come up with incredibly long addresses that we can't condense.

It does seem worth every penny. [Eek!]

I too always found the same problem, Ugo

But Ugo and Douglas, do you know that your long ebay link can be cut into the item numbers (look at the URL address) so it will fit to this system and yet it still take us to the right place.

This is for example:

http://cgi.ebay.it/EUMIG-S3-ZOOM-LIMITED-8MM-PROIETTORE-SILMA-COMPACT-8_W0QQitemZ140234919832QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item140234919832

cheers,
