Any film buffs in and around London should note the programme at The Group 9.5 based in St Gabriels Church Hall Lupus Street nearest tube Pimlico on the Victoria Line. Guest entrance fee is £1.50 which includes tea and biscuits.

Last Nights show comprised a feature "Prison Train" a rare 1930's thriller. (The AFI synopsis notes that they couldn't source a complete print.)
Supporting shorts included "Pink with a red shadow" a 1950,s promo for the Conservative party exposing the "socialists" aka Labour Party were lying to the electorate to introduce communism.
"Jack Frost" a cautionary tale about I lagged water pipes from the Water board starring Harry Fowler.
"Phillips on Parade" a technicolor Joop Geesink Dollywood animation promoting Phillips products. And a ten minute extract from "Nitwits on parade" a lost British. comedy from 1949. All 16mm.

Upcoming shows are

Jan 31st A full programme of 9.5mm optical sound. The chosen feature is 'She Shall Have Music' (GB 1936). Another Julius Hagen production, this time directed by Leslie Hiscott. It's a lively musical headed by Jack Hylton and his band with June Clyde. The cast of many includes Claude Dampier, Marjorie Brooks, Felix Aylmer and various variety acts. Screened and presented by Grahame Newnham with some interesting short films included.

February 14th
'The Epic That Never Was' is a BBC 70 minute documentary made in 1965 that is introduced and narrated throughout by Dirk Bogarde. It tells the story of the abandoned production in 1937 of 'I Claudius1 being made at Denham studios by Alexander Korda. Charles Laughton was in the title role and it was plagued by many problems, along with the leading lady - Merle Oberon being injured in a car crash. Flora Robson was also in the cast. Much footage from this unfinished film is used and it is well worth seeing. Screened and presented by David Wyatt with supporting shorts. The format is all 16mm.

February 28th
'Jackpot' (GB 1960). William Hartnell heads the cast in this crime second feature directed by Montgomery Tully who brings a practised skill in keeping a narrative moving briskly along. This one is a good example with the story well told. Also in the cast are Betty McDowall, Eddie Byrne, Victor Brooks and Michael Ripper. Supporting material will complete the programme. Presented and screened by Anthony Saffrey, again on 16mm.

March 21st
The Man Who Never Was' (GB 1955) will be shown in a wide screen format on an 8ft screen with good quality colour. Directed by Ronald Neame, this highly rated Cinemascope production won a British Oscar for best screenplay. It is based on a true story involving a plot to fool the Germans in world war 2. It stars Clifton Webb, Stephen Boyd and Gloria Grahame, along with much support that includes Robert Flemyng, Laurence Naismith, Josephine Griffin, Geoffrey Keen and Joan Hickson. Presented and screened by David Wyatt on 16mm. A one reel short may also be included.

And of course the Spring Fair in April where you can buy sell trade films and equipment ephemera etc.

Has the program for April been announced? I want to know if a show coincides with the BFCC date. We (the Greek Mafia) always attend when it does.

There is a mistake in the magazine. The date for the AGM is a week later the 18th april. This will be corrected in the next magazine out soon. All meetings now will all be 3 weeks apart hence the mistake.

Thanks for correcting that, Graham. So, it will be the same day as the BFCC.

The A.G.M. has always been on a Saturday EVENING. I do not think it clashes with Ealing because that finishes late afternoons. The committtee have always tried to ensure the dates and times do not clash. Perhaps you are confusing the regular evening Pimlico meetings with the "Spring Fair". Ken Finch.

The magazine doesn't give any timetable for the AGM, so I assumed it started at 7.30 pm like the other meetings. Could a member confirm at what time it starts ?

ALL the group 9.5 meetings, including the AGM, all start at 8pm. (the magazine always quotes 7:30 but in reality all start at 8pm.)

I was happy to come to the meeting yesterday. Sad I don't live in London (or Paris where there are also monthly 9.5 projections). It's always magical to see a projector in action with people around enjoying it.

It was so nice, only two weeks after the BFCC and the 9.5 meeting (the same night) to see again the British ninefivers. Sevral members or reader of the forum were there and it is always a pleasure to see people in real. I came back to Belgium with no less than 6 sounds and one silent film, all 9.5. I wish I couls have stayed longer but my bag was too heavy !  -  -  -  -
