There's modern life: you need a Japanese pronunciation and you have somebody in Japan on the case in 10 minutes.

Thanks, Jason!

These are great little films. I like sharing them with my son because he was born in this century and something from that long ago has him thinking about the past. Otherwise he might think the dinosaurs ruled the earth in the 1970s.

If I remember correctly - because I haven't screened any of my Bruins prints in quite awhile. The Castle Bruins titles may have been released theatrically through Paramount as short subjects. Which would explain why they are better than one would think. They are well done and very enjoyable regardless.

Janice ...

I wonder how rare that sound edition of that bear film is? That's the first I've heard of a sound version. Is it Standard 8mm sound? I've seen 16MM optical sound copies of these Castle films, of course, but the sound standard 8mm or super 8mm must be rare.

Hi Osi,

Early in this thread we found out that they stopped printing these before Super-8 came to be. The Reg-8mm editions are all silent as far as I know.

This is the second 16mm Bruins print I've bought. I paid for "-go camping" at the beginning of April and either it got lost in the mail or maybe it'll show up in time to hibernate!

They are running like 15 bucks. If you ignore the long term ramifications of me branching into 16mm, that's pretty cheap!

Actually I already had an hour long John Denver nature special about Bighorn Sheep in the Rockies.

-So far 16mm seems very outdoorsy. (Fine by me!)
