I don't think the Shirley temple film was ever released on 9.5mm by Pathescope in the U.K. Must have originated from the French Pathe company or perhaps Film Office. I have a couple of the early Shirley Temple sound shorts on Super 8 but recently purchased box sets on DVD region 2. Ken Finch.

I saw two other Shirley Temple films (at the monthly projection of the 9,5 club) ; they were also in English sound with French subtitles. We also watched "Cendrillon de Paris", a French film. I watched, today, at home, two documentaries (both in French) "L'opéra de Paris" (everything is in the title) and "Symphonie en blanc" (an opera related film).

A French documentary "La main de l'Homme" (The Man's Hand). It is about the human hand. I am always impressed how Pathé could make documentaries with interesting content about so various subjects. You always learn things and the vocabulary is ritch. This documentary has a section which contains a fiction. They didn't hesitate at that time to show in an educational film someone taking a cigarette (remember it's about the hand). Then I watched "Monsieur met la main à la pâte", a short film for which Grahame Newnham gives in English the title Man Puts His Hand To His Head (but you loose in translation). I ended with The Mellow Side, a reperfored musical from the 40's.

The Show The Thing, a British musical, then an unindified extract of a French (musicals) film I received for free when buying another film and the song My Girl Loves A Soldier.

Animal Wonderland, a British film that surprised me as some sections were "like new", completely lines free (the film was treated with Filmguard, but like all the other films, so I think it doesn't explain everything).

Notched films (about cities of Middle East) and home movies from the twenties and the thirties. The interest of the home movie films varies from one reel from another but among them, a couple (with wonderful clothes) kidding with a garden hose and scenes from a market in Paris that no longer exist (les Halles).

"Full Steam Ahead" a silent "Our Gang" (Little Rascals) film. I also have a print of "The Sundown limited". Same content; was "Full Steam Ahead" a release from Pathescope in London? Both prints are in good condition.

Un monastère (A Monastry), a sound documentary about monks and "Marionnettes de George Pal", a compilation of three animated sound shorts. Strangely, they have French titles but English sound.

A French sound documentary "Malheur aux vaincus". I spliced the two spools together. Except for two scènes that are (in my opinion) too long, it is an interesting film : there are close ups of animals that could stand the comparison with todays documentaries, you can see several time the filmaker with his camera (which is of course nice for us) and the comment uses a high level of French that should inspire some people working for television now.

A few days ago, "Gringalet", a French feature and last night "Panorama musical", a documentary. Both are sound films.

I bought this on e-bay as unknown contents.....A peak films release called "TEASY ON THE EYES" 100ft Glamour/Comedy....I didn't know what it was before I screened it as it had no label or box.....it was amusing in the fact it was quite racy in the 1930s.....she is wearing underwear and bra and posing on a couch while the photographer is distracted and keeps knocking over the lights and camera etc.The film its self is in quite good condition with no sprocket damage and has complete head and tail film.I guess it was only watched on special occassions when no children were around !

Just began watching titles picked up at Argenteuil, after respooling and repairing...Tonight the great Ivan Mosjukine in the rare early silent version of L'Enfant du Carnaval retitled Le Secret Du Carnaval(6 x 30, Pathe 596, notched) with his sometime costar Nathalie Lissenko.

It looks like they may have cut some interesting material out of this film for the 9.5 version, because there is a brief dream sequence with Lissenko on a train that shows some great promise, but the movie overall is reduced to a comedy about the discovery of a baby, with a choppy narrative of the boy growing up and very little of the great actor,,,
