My guess its a Keystone [Cool] could be wrong though. [Roll Eyes]

Here is another from Super8 The Movie "from the making of". It was neat to watch the kids who were acting in this film showing a real interest in film stuff. [Smile]

The first thing that came to mind when watching this scene was....worm gear [Eek!] ...I guess its been replaced.

...or at least it didn't shatter while shooting their movie!

Would one of the moderators be willing to make an index at the top of this thread? There are so many entries now that it's getting tough to remember what's here and what's not. A most impressive effort!

Oh, Yes!

I remember what Oscar said when Felix told him he was going to make a film:

"You're a cleany. Maybe you're a Fellini!"

Oscar introduces Felix to one of his sleazy friends who is also a low budget filmmaker.

They discuss collaborating:

Felix: My film is 16mm.
Phil: Mine is Super-8. We'll blow it up!

Only on set when the actors' clothes start flying does Felix realize he's now making low budget porn.

"CUT!!"

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

Pat
I should have mentioned that when I mentioned "Keystone" it was a reply to Janice from the last page where she asks the question "Keystone or a Dejur" sorry about that, my fault.

Any ideas though [Smile]

Bell & Howell seems to be the projector of choice in the majority of movies. You get a nice view of a B&H next to Racquel Welch who plays a U.S. team skydiver in Fathom (1967). The lower clip shows her watching a film provided by a Western agency who want to use her skydiving skills for a secret mission.

I'm not sure why so many Sci-Fi movies are about some catostrophic event wiping out the entire human race. There always seems to be a few normal survivors and then a handful of deformed or psychotic survivors that are out to get rid of the normal ones [Eek!] In The Omega Man (1971) Charlton Heston is the lone normal survivor. The clips below show him starting up a huge projector to watch a film about Woodstock [Smile] It's hard for me to imagine Charlton Heston even being remotely interested in Woodstock.

Although Sunset Blvd. (1950) is a fictional story...it's not that far from depicting similar real-life dramas having occured in Hollywood over the years. William Holden plays a second-rate screenwriter and Gloria Swanson a former silent-film star.

Ok...so there's no actual projector shown...but in this scene from Coneheads (1993) is a montage of simulated 8mm home movies taken after Beldar (Dan Aykroyd) and his wife Prymatt (Jane Curtain) have a daughter. The whole scene is done to the song Kodachrome by Simon & Garfunkel. My grandsons love this movie....and me too!

(This series is shown here in Sweden only six days after US)

Memories of Me (1988) stars Billy Crystal, Alan King and Jo Beth Williams. The movie they are watching is being projected on a refrigerator door.

Michael Caine plays a British agent in The Ipcress File (1965). A B&H projector is used to show surveillance footage during an agent briefing session.

I hadn't watched this movie in a long time...I had forgotten how funny Bachelor Party (1984) was. The projector is seen when Adrian Zmed brings a "spicy" movie to get the party started. Tom Hanks is among the eager watchers. [Smile]
