Correction, John -- Gilligan Powered [Wink]

The other night I watched THE CAT FROM OUTER SPACE. The premise of the film is: A UFO is stranded on earth and impounded by the US government. Its pilot, a cat with a collar that has special powers, including the ability to allow the cat to communicate with humans, has eluded the authorities and needs the help of a man named Frank in order to reclaim and repair his ship to get back home.

Roddy McDowall spies on McLean Stevenson with a Super 8 camera while he's being levitated by the cat. Later, he screens the film for his boss but, the footage but it is shot upside down.

These images are from a youtube video dubbed from poor quality VHS...

How about all the *M*A*S*H* epsodes where they are watching features in the mess tent on 16mm with Klinger running the projector?

At least half the time it's the wrong film or the same film they've had for weeks, or the film breaks or in one case the tent rips and drowns the machine with rain water.

Klinger has to show multi-reel features on a single machine, but as they say: "War is Hell".

We watched TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN last night on 16mm, these pictures below are from youtube screen captures. Woody Allen plans a bank robbery and sets up a film for the criminals to see on 8mm. What is the projector?

This is what he accidentally projects -- Nice color (and sound) on an 8mm print. [Roll Eyes]

That trout fishing movie has a interesting year of copyright.
Obviously someone who have no idea about roman numerals have done this, OR, it's made specially as a joke for all who have taken the time to learn roman numerals to enjoy.

What it says?

M=1000, C=100, X=10, IV=4 and III=3.

Perhaps it means year 1114 month 3?
If so, they really where before their time in Quebec. [Big Grin]

Hi Lars,

This is a comedy so, the year in Roman numerals are 1117.

Good "catch"!

The Stranger directed by Orson Welles and starring Welles, Edward G. Robinson, and Loretta Young.

The projector.

Does anyone recognize what projector it is? It looks like 16mm.
After watching the film she storms out onto the balcony as they show the end of the film slapping against the desk.

Bryan,

I just saw this print the night before you posted your reply! I have a 16mm copy, slightly on the "dark" side and when this scene came up on the 3rd reel, I missed my opportunity to take a screen-shot.

I have a projector like this(but different), a 300' capacity Bell & Howell Filmo Master. I think it's an 8mm because I also have a patented 200' Keystone take-up reel that looks just like that. There also appears to be about 50' of film on the supply reel, needless to say no bad movie is ever too short! While this movie, 'The Stranger' is a great one.

Side note: When Lorreta Young runs out of the room, Edward G. follows her and leaves the projector running and the lamp ON! Only in the movies...

Speaking of Nazi screenings, I remember in the film THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PIJAMAS, there is a scene of a 16mm sound projector being used to show a group a propaganda film about how inmates in a prision camp are being treated fairly, the film is being shown by the commandant of the camp to a group goverment officials, I think the projector is a Bauer 16mm.

Here's a very nice LPP original of COMING HOME on 16mm. It has a quick scene with a projector, anyone know what it is? It looks like another bell & Howell to me. The screen looks like a Da-lite...

Maybe it's nostalgia talking, but the screen does looks like a Da-lite silver screen; my "first one" [Big Grin]

As for the projector, I cannot tell.

Dario Argento's "Demons", about people trapped in a demonic art deco movie theatre. They eventually break into the booth and find nobody is running the movie, much like a modern multiplex. [Roll Eyes]

I have quite a few of the movies mentioned in this thread. I'm going to go through them and make screen captures of the ones not already pictured.

Here's the Twilight Zone episode:

I'm a big fan of '80's movies....and this is one of my favorites:
It's kind of hard to see, but can anybody identify the projector?

It looks like one of the Elmo range. Starman is one of my favourite films and I think the super 8 footage is genuine super 8 footage and not a mockup

The Boy Who Could Fly is an obscure 80's movie...not one of my favorites... never really understood it, but none-the-less it fits nicely into the topic of this discussion -)

The Abraham Zapruder film shot on the day Kennedy was shot in Dallas was shown in the court scene of Oliver Stone's JFK. This August I visited the 6th Floor of the Book Store Depository where Oswald fired the fatal shots. It is now a museum and has the Zapruder camera (Bell & Howell 414PD) on display. I got an erie feeling looking out the window down onto Dealey Plaza and later standing on the "grassy knoll". I recommend anyone visiting Dallas to include this museum in their itinerary.

Doesn't the K-68 have a light on the base just above the power switch. I found this photo it's labeled a Keystone 95 (circa 1953) that looks like it might be the same projector. What do you think?
