Thank you Robert, I'm in my second year and am up to 18 features - still a novice. Oliver! is great, although the only problem is that someone has cut the first musical number straight after the titles, so I'm missing about three minutes. Otherwise the film is complete, it looks - and sounds - great. I had forgotten some others added during the year:
The Best things in Life are Free - scope
The Riddle of the Sands - Fuji scope.
These two were bargains from David Guest, the latter is in its Filmbank/Rank hire box.
Paint Your Wagon (IB Tech) scope.
I can see space is going to become an issue in 2018..

You have done well to get such high profile titles with good colour in such a short time.

Another couple of titles I bought were:
Kelly and Me, a very nice print from David Guest, starring van Johnson; a very nice film for dog lovers.
Son of Robin Hood in Scope.

Thanks Tom. Must say that your print of Witness looks a stunner. I remember going to see that when it came out. It's one of those films with repeatability.

Hi Brian, I wonder if your Bob Crosby film is different from mine; mine was released by Wing Films and distributed by DCR of the Isle of Wight; the release year was given as 1931. I think it included 'South Rampart Street Parade'.

It must be a different Bob Cosby film. Mine is a Dilm Archive Productions (Vintage Film series no 301 1938) distributed by BMM Film Services, Buckingham.

I bought it from Ian of Perrys Films at the revived Big Screen Scene in October.

2018 has been a reasonable year of additions for us, we sold a few off that we acquired last year along with some others to gain funds for new titles, however, here are our 2018 additions to our collection,

We did also sell off a fair few small items and one or two old features in 2018 and will continue to do so in 2019 to reduce number.

Another excellent purchase for me in 2018 was my Eiki SLT2 super slot loader and a Kodak 19mm lens from Kevin Clarke.

Now looking out to make a January purchase, 8 or 16mm [Wink]

Happy New year to all.

Batman the movie, is that the 1966 Adam West film?
Under Siege 2, good action movie. I'd like either of the two under siege films. [Wink]

With moving house in late 2017 and putting together a new screening room, I only bought one super 8 film in 2018, but what a gem it is.

Ian O'Reilly advertised it here, "Bulldog Jack", a 30's crime caper with Fay Fray. 3 x 400ft and at a very decent price, I took a punt, not knowing anything about it.

After a bit of google, it is a Bulldog Jack off-shoot, edited from the feature, although just where and how you couldn't guess.

It is intentionally hilarious, the sort of film that has been overlooked, but hugely entertaining. I looked to see if a digital version exists, but apparently only a Spanish version with average picture and very poor sound, so another reason to have the very watchable super 8 version.

It was shown several times over Christmas with lots of laughs, and a bargain from the ever reliable Ian.

Just brilliant - long live real film!

[Smile]

PS. It came on one full 1200ft spool with "J. Bird" written in black marker around the edge, so I wonder if this once belonged to the great John Bird of super 8 heritage here in the UK?
