Tonight, "Les trois mousquetaires", part 1. I watched recently home movie films I got from France, 50 30mt/100ft spools. I watched 39 of them so far. They are travel films (in colour) from the '60s and '70s.

Just watched two silent films. One amateur film labelled August 1943. A Summer camp with children and catholic priest dressed as it was normal at that time. The second film is a documentary about the 1937 international exhibition in Paris.

Two incomplete sound films : an extract of Le silence est d'or (with Maurice Chevalier) and a cartoon (without the beginning) that I believe to be La fanafare à quatre pattes (The Bandmaster).

A British short (bought at Pimlico), Up To The Hilt, and then a French feature (mounted on a large spool), Un gosse en or.

I watched Christus (1914) on a 900ft reel,it was released as 3 x 300ft reels.It has the opening titles but missing "the end".
A few joins and lots of title-cards giving a great narration of the story.I think it was a big production with many people in it.

Also Pick-A-Back Plane (1938) it's a 60ft news segment from Pathe.
The actual film has been well-watched and has lots of lines and a bit jumpy to start,overall it's still a great watch [Smile]
Here's the clip that I posted on YouTube ...

5 20 mt/60ft carters of a serie of 6 (the first one is missing) : Stage Stars Off Stage. All british celebrities from the '20s. it's not a story film so the fact that the first part is missing doesn't affect the pleasure of watching the others. Films watched with my Pathé Coq, so not a lot of light but I'm still happy with the led bulb I bought following Janice's suggestion.

Indeed, Clinton. The celebrities of the time (not all movie stars) are shown in their daily life. To be honnest, except Jack Buchanan, I don't know any of them. Should be intersted to list them one day and make some searches about them.

I got an amazing PM from Maurice Trace with full informations about the Stage Stars serie. I have not enough words to thanks you, Maurice. It seems that the two Maurice of the forum are gold mines of informations.

Son Review N°1, The Wizards'Apprentice (a film that inspirered Walt Disney), The Tiger Hunt (very interesting footage) and The Open Road (a musical). All recently acquired films at Harpenden.

Three musical reels bought at Harpenden. They are 16 mm extracts reperfored to 9.5 (in the '60s I was told, when Pathescope stopped). There image is normally reversed (there is no text) but I projected the films with my Ligonie so I had the correct picture. Although the soundtrack is a little bit cut, sound is good (better than what I expected). Then another reperfored film (also bought recently at Harpenden) but with a magnetic soundtrack : Donald Duck : The Window Cleaners. Good colour.

You mentioned The Wizards Apprentice but stated that it was a 'review '. Not the full film?

Three sound films : Fares Fair, At The Circus and Ocean Tempest. For some technical reasons (my 9.5 sound projectors are not at the place I'm spending the more time at the moment), I'm not able to watch 9.5 films as often as I wished. Hope this will be fixed [Smile]

Not exactly been watching a great deal as I've been souping up another Pathe Vox replacing the transformer and fitting a new 25 watt Amp in the back box. But I have been running some Popeyes thru it testing the machine and should be completed in time for Christmas.

Seasin's Greetinks 1933 a good cartoon for a Christmas show.

Secret of the Lock 6 reels of sound Ealing nostalgia

Seymour Hicks in this fun romp and some ingenious underwater scenes created on dry land and superimposed diving bubbles.

Three of my favourite films in my 9.5 sound collection will be
Scrooge, Its you I want and the above all starring Seymour and good mini features.

Oh the Vox soup up is performing well [Smile]

Casanova, a tinted print. Actually, some scenes are tinted. The colour chemicals that were used to tint the stock were made to hold since they are still there, probably as they were when the film was first sold. I was surprised to notice at the beginning of the film the short appearance of the famous actor Michel Simon in a very little role.
