My viewings today was Song of Norway, scope
This is with a green filter

and with a cyan filter

This movie is turning into one of my top 5 films I believe. Just love the feel, photo, editing, music, acting ... It's all top notch. Highly recommended for anyone who hasn't seen it.

I saw my fourth, and for the present, last, adaptation of a story by Alistair MacLean The Hostage Tower.
Probably the weakest of all films based on his works, but I have made up my mind to try and get as many of them as possible.
At least the copy is on AGFA so the colours are spot on.

One of my latest additions Gambit from 1966.
Michael Caine is a burglar who enlists the help of showgirl Shirley MacLaine in the plan to rob the "richest man in the world" Herbert Lom.
After first having seen the plan work flawlessly (in the burglars head) we then see it in real life, where everything goes wrong.
The copy is in scope and, I believe, Technicolor, as it has a clear edge and a grey soundtrack.

A very nice print Lars...this is one of my favorite. I love how Michael Caine's vision of how perfectly the caper was going to play out turned out quite different from what actually happened. I've seen this film on Ebay a few times...but I'm looking for a flat print. Nice pics [Smile]

Bugs Bunny and Pierre Bear (with Woody)

After a very busy month projecting 22mm and 16mm sound on disc in Richmond, VA and then 28mm and 9.5mm in Colorado Springs, CO...I finally had some time at home to project for fun so I watched some silent comedy shorts.. A Star films version of Racing Blood EP 6 Watch Your Pep (1 x 400ft, 1928), Ton o' Fun in Three Wise Goofs (1 x 400ft, 1925) and an early Hal Roach starring Beatrice LaPlante entitled A Regular Pal (1 x 400ft, 1920)

The Man From Hong Kong, a real action-flick from down under. It was so violent that the Swedish censors banned it back in 1975. This is a English X certificate print, so it's slightly cut but a lot of kicking and hitting are still there.
The baddie is played by non other than George Lazenby.
It also has the song "Sky High" by Jigsaw during both main and end credits. Remember that one? It was quite popular at the time.

The copy is in scope and AGFA.

I screened a beautiful, very sharp LPP print of Woody Allen's Masterpiece "The Purple Rose of Cairo" last night - a great experience on the last day of the old year.
Our guests, which never saw the film before were thrilled.
A truly great movie and one of Woody Allen's best!
 
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on January 01, 2014, 07:45 AM:
 
Purple Rose is surely among Allen's best. Not that funny the newer ones, but mostly all of his old ones are really funny. My favorite is Annie Hall. Any screenshots? Is it faded? Seems like all I see of Woody Allen films looks faded, so just wondering

Happy New Year
 
Posted by Michael Scheck (Member # 114) on January 01, 2014, 11:35 PM:
 
And a happy new Year to you, Vidar - and to all forum members as well!
No, my "Purple Rose" has not faded a all - it's a Kodak LPP print, with beautiful colors! I bought it from the US a few months ago.
Concerning the screen shots: I tried but I can't get it right - they always look awful, so I stopped trying...

Is it original english version?
 
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on February 06, 2014, 08:58 AM:
 
As usual, I have no idea ... The colors is very vibrant and clear, almost over the top colors at times. It's english sound with danish subtitles and not perfect with splices and such. But worth the 15 or 20 dollars I paid

Vidar,

Regarding GREMLINS, is this a 35mm print.
Looks great.
 
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on February 24, 2014, 03:16 PM:
 
Yes, it's a 35mm print and has amazing colors. Close to perfect, except the problem that is't flat 1.85:1 on all reels except reel 5 which is 2.35:1 flat

Weird, I thought it was filmed in 1.85:1, but see the Blu-Ray rips online states 2.35:1 too
 
Posted by Flavio Stabile (Member # 357) on February 27, 2014, 05:40 AM:
 
Hello Vidar,

indeed IMDB says the film was shooted (apect ratio) at 1.85:1

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087363/technical?ref_=tt_dt_spec

Where did you read about 2.35:1?

Flavio
 
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on February 27, 2014, 09:15 AM:
 
Search google for Gremlins 2.35:1 and the "pirated" Blu-Rays states 2.35:1 as original aspect ratio
 
Posted by Flavio Stabile (Member # 357) on February 28, 2014, 03:34 PM:
 
Well, it's clealry a mistake as you can easily see also on AMAZON

http://www.amazon.com/Gremlins-Blu-ray-Zach-Galligan/dp/B001AQT0UY

and I hope you are happy to know your 35mm is a really original copy with great fantastic colors!

Don't you agree??? [Big Grin]
 
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on February 28, 2014, 06:38 PM:
 
I love it, except the part that reel 5 is still 2.35:1 and the rest is 1.85:1 :-)

Are any of those Gremlins pics from R5?

Gremlins was absolutely not shot in scope. It's was shot flat, open matte, except some scenes were filmed hard matte with a 1:66 aspect ratio.

I'd like to see pics of R5 to see what you're interpreting as scope.
 
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on March 08, 2014, 01:58 AM:
 
It's not scope, it's matted (or is it called letterboxed?) to 2.35:1

Come to think of it, the 16mm print I borrowed also had different sections in different formats

I'll try to take a shot or something of the screen running the two different reels, when I get the time

Clearly not the same ratio in my eyes anyways

Vidar, have you seen the 8mm version of 'Gremlins'?
The S8mm 2 X 600ft edition is full frame except for the sequence in Dorry's Bar which is masked to widescreen (not scope format).
 
Posted by Vidar Olavesen (Member # 3354) on March 31, 2014, 06:45 PM:
 
I have not seen that, but I've borrowed the 16mm print once and it had some differences too, but not in the same places. The 16mm had some masked sequences when the mother is fighting the gremlins in the kitchen among other sequences.

Does that mean it was shown like that in the cinemas? I can not remember noticing that in the 80's when I saw it, but it's quite some time ago

I don't see this movie on TV anymore...not even on TMC. The Devil's Deciple (1959) stars Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier, and Janette Scott. Set during the Revolutionary War, shows the role reversals between a black sheep of a family (Kirk Douglas) and a local minister (Burt Lancaster).

Janice,

Great screen shots of both Toyland and It Happened One Night.

Is the Toyland print from different sources, because some of the screen shots look different. Nevertheless, it's the best that I've seen.

And wow, It Happened One Night never looked better. It's my all time favorite.

I can watch it again and again. That's a difficult print to find. Wish that I had one too.

Enjoy.

Vidar,

I have always wanted to see the Straight Story. Richard Farnsworth was also nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actor.

Are the Laurel & Hardy screen shots taken from 16mm or 35mm?

I do not know anything about 35mm.

What model 35mm projector do you use and how do you manage the collection and the projector?

Are the reels broken down onto cores and then replaced onto reels again?

What is the size of the projector?

Do you run the movie in 10 minute sections?

Do you use a halogen lamp?

Do you keep the 35mm projector set-up in a separate booth?

> I have always wanted to see the Straight Story. Richard Farnsworth was also nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actor.

You should absolutely see this film, it's a touching, heartwarming and super film and I am so happy to have this

> Are the Laurel & Hardy screen shots taken from 16mm or 35mm?

Not sure which you mean? Janice has posted some, if I posted any in this thread, it is for sure 16mm (and I only have short extracts)

> What model 35mm projector do you use and how do you manage the collection and the projector?

I have a portable Philips FP 23 (same as the Kinoton) and managing this format is hard work :-) Heavy films

> Are the reels broken down onto cores and then replaced onto reels again?

You can do that, usually you get a normal length film onto to big reels, but mine is kept on cores all the time and in 600m (same running time as 400' Super 8). My roof is too low for bigger reels :-)

> What is the size of the projector?

 -

As a small reference, the wheel you see half of at the right side is a 1200' Super 8 reel

> Do you run the movie in 10 minute sections?

About 20 minutes per reel

> Do you use a halogen lamp?

Yes, mine is not a huge projector, so uses a 450W Halogen, if I remember correctly

> Do you keep the 35mm projector set-up in a separate booth?

I should, but the space doesn't allow it. Very noisy projector and crossing my fingers for winning the lottery, then a new garage with a cinema will be up :-)

From our club showing last night. We started off with a 16mm widescreen (not scope) feature called The Midnight Man (seems to be quite rare with no DVD releases it seems)

It was bought as red from CHC, but I was happy with the print at 25 GBP. Was expecting more red than this.

And I put on my "new" Abbott and Costello, Take Bus Pay Later on 16mm. Spent a fortune on it. 2 GBP :-) Well worth it

Imdb is just a pointer, many films get high scores which I can't agree on, whilst others I like, they give low. Depends on the general public and how many votes it gets. I'll try to find a DVD of it, as a 16mm is probably not that easy :-)

So how is the collection coming along now? Any real goodies?

Stars Robbie Benson and Annette O'toole and although very dated (bell-bottom pants and short basketball shorts [Smile] ), still a fun film. Robbie Benson did a terrific job at selling his on-camera basketball skills.

Ran The Court Jester last night, stars Danny Kaye, Glynis Johns, Basil Rathbone, Angela Lansbury, Cecil Parker etc. 16mm Technicolor print. Originally shot in VistaVision. Looks great on the big screen.

I watched the 1992 Comedy drama, "Peter's Friends". I never thought I would come across a 16mm print of this and it is quite special to me. I actually worked on the film as a runner and my name is on the credits. Many thanks, Paul Foster!

Sunday we had a Christmas show in our little club. We saw the films posted in 8mm (sorry there was a couple of digital pictures there too, not 8mm) and Gremlins ... These are 35mm prints by the way

And yesterday we saw a print of The Town That Dreaded Sundown, which had a lot of wear at the beginning and end of reels, but over it was better than expected. Colours were good

I had a scope print of The Town That Dreaded Sundown. I saw it in a theater when it came out. Later, obtaining a 16mm scope print, as an adult, I thought it was rather silly. Funny how different you look at things as you get older.

The Final Countdown, scope. A great film to have, its one of those sadly overlooked at the time of release.

I agree with David. I loved this film when it came out...and then it just disappeared from public view and consciousness. A really neat idea carried out nicely. Good cast, too. And a great score. It would make a good 40 minute digest, if anyone could find good pre-print material.

Recouperating from the mother of all colds, I am slowly beginning to watch films again.
One of the films I have seen are I Ought To Be In Pictures from a play by Neil Simon. It stars Walter Matthau, Ann-Margret and Dina Manoff.

I have been unable to find any marking that reveals what kind of stock it is, but it must be some kind of LPP as the colours are stunning.

Next I saw Jerry Lewis in The Geisha Boy from 1958.
This was also the first film of Suzanne Pleshette (and Harry Hare).
It also containes a funny scene where Sessue Hayakawa spoofs his role from the previous year in The Bridge On The River Kwai.

The copy is LPP from 1988 and the colours almost look like Technicolor.

Neat Educational Film shot in Ontario from 1971.
HELP IS
Kind of a first aid/drivers ed/Ontario highways promo.
You know things are not going to end well for the teens out for their drive.
Has all the prerequisite gore, including a sucking chest wound!
One of the fun things in collecting 16mm is that you come across stuff like this.

Hi Terry,

I couldn't agree more, I have a few St. Johns Ambulance educationals and they do get quite graphic. I bet it's to scare the audience careful on the gravity of reckless driving etc... Thanks for sharing and hope you tracked down that last FilmGuard from Cinematronics in Toronto [Smile] !!!

St John Ambulance was involved in this one. I'm sure the ones you have are similarly entertaining.

I do still have to get in contact with Cinematronics - it seems extra cash goes always goes to films!!

I do believe Cinematronix has another bottle in stock so go for it soon. Lemme know if there's any more information you'd like and have yourself a great weekend [Smile] !!!

I finally decided to dare to project my only VS infected film. I filmguarded several times, in hope to maximize the risk of contagion. Yesterday, I even "clean" it with Detol. So, the film (a compilation of soundies I originally bought to reperfor to 9.5 as the picture is mirror reverse) ran well, except for three small sections (a few seconds each time) on three different songs. The "black and white colours" vary from one song to another so the filmstock may also be different and all the film may not be affected by VS or at different levels. but of course, I will leave it as it is. I put the film back in my bathroom (nobody has never so far asked why I was keeping a vinegar smelly reel of film there), away from my other films.

Hello Elyas,
I watched your transfert of Ethiopian Mosaic. Did you use a filter or a special function on your camera ? The colour are turning red/pink but the white is still white, so I wondered if you did something special for that or if it's just how the film became.

It's a film I also would dearly love to own on Super 8mm Janice. Derann did release around 3 or 4 of the most popular Monroe movies but they are seldom seen and when they do appear in fabulous condition, they sell for very high amounts.

There was a post not long back on here about a mint print of the Derann release "Gentleman Prefer Blondes".
A UK collector on here purchased it for what he described as "the most he has ever payed for a Super 8mm feature film".
I know it would have been in mint condition as I have myself purchased from the same seller and his prints are always in incredible condition.

I doubt he or anyone else would ever have any regrets for whatever they pay for these absolute classics. You have a real gem there Janice!

Just watched Dragnet tv series Season 4 Episode 6, 25 mins running time and in colour which has turned red,the sound was good and that Dragnet theme is a classic!
The episode is called Little Pushers from 1969 , it is about children pushing drugs and marijuana to children.
It starts of with the police taking a 12 year old boy to hospital as he was on drugs,the doctor talks about what might happen etc.Then his parents are called in and they had no idea of what he was up too.
The school then asked for the police to talk to teachers about what to look for etc with drugs.
Then the culprit was discovered and he was lectured about the dangers.
It was very corny and acting was like they were in a public service announcement

The cops went to his house and there were 2 more children all dirty and looking like they were mistreated - of course they were illegitimate as they were living with 4 unmarried adults !!!!! Oh and naturally they were hippies and has a poster on the wall of marijuana !
Every one was arrested and the children placed in foster homes.

Now I know drugs are bad and everything but this episode was bad also, everything about it was stereotypical of what the drug people would be like according to the police and people of that time period!!

I'm guessing it was funded by an anti-drug organisation !
Entertaining for its bad acting and story telling! Ahh the 1960s hippies doing what of course only hippies do - sell and take drugs and marijuana .... FUNNY stuff.

'Shazam', and from a cloud of smoke Tom Tyler appears and flies across the sky to save a damsel running along the top of a dam pursued by a trilby hatted gangster. How it brings back memories of the Saturday morning picture club. The print is pretty good with only (only!) a very light central printed scratch.

A short Technicolor evening to check the projector was working OK.
A short documentary from Tate & Lyle (A Family Affair?) with a silly add on plot to get a toy for a Jamaican boy. I bought it for £2 at a film fair. Followed by the last part (reels 5 & 6) from the feature Convoy (scope) bought at a Blackpool auction. Both had a little wear but the colour was perfect. No pictures as I was holding the anamorphic by hand as I'd never shown a 16mm print and haven't made a lens holder yet.

I'm running out of room to store 16mm reels...but I'm a sucker for some 80's movies. I just got this little 1983 Dudley Moore movie called "Lovesick." Dudley is a psychiatrist who goes way beyond a simple case of counter transference and falls deliriously in love with one of his patients (Elizabeth McGovern). The cast is full of familiar faces. My favorite is Alec Guinness, who does a great job playing Sigmund Freud. Freud is Dudley's imaginary conscience and the dialogs between the two are priceless. Other personalities are John Huston, Alan King, Wallace Shawn, Ron Silver, Christine Baranski, and David Strathairn.

Last Night I watched my new Technicolour print of Disneys Treasure Island. A really clean, sharp colourful print. I had never seen the film before but it is excellent.

Yes I think you did take a photo with the cue mark Michael.
I remember seeing those when I videotaped tv programs to watch later. When I saw them I then got ready to fast forward 🙂

Just received my Tim Burtuns Batman and Batman Returns prints.
Yesterday I run reel 1 and 2 of Batman with my Elmo 16 CL Xenon and shortly before end of reel 2, the projector conked out.
Today I watched the last reel (reel 3) with the Elmo 16 CL Halogen.

I was a little bit disappointed, I have the S8 Trailer of Batman (it was released together with two 007 License to Kill trailers) and the color quality of the S8 print is a little bit better than the 16mm feature.

The super 8mm trailer is probably a dupe from a print and may have enhanced the color.

Dominique...I didn't realize you were into 16mm also...cool [Cool]

In celebration of the fantastic Golden State Warrior victory over the OKC Thunder Monday night...I watched my somewhat faded basketball movie One On One (1977). Robbie Benson is no Steph Curry...but his dribbling and shooting is pretty convincing for the movie.

Janice, I have actually many 16 mm films but "only" two sound projectors and no good 16 mm splicer or large rewinder so I must admitt that I have been neglecting this gauge for a while. When I moved (10 years ago), I had to put most of my films in different place that where I live, and the majority of the films that are stored are my 16 mm ones as they need more room.

Continental Divide (1981) was one of John Belushi's last movies. It's a very tame movie by Belushi standards, but a cute story and the music score is excellent. A very feel-good movie, but I get a little teary-eyed when Helen Reddy sings the ending song "Never Say Goodbye." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThA5uZEg6nY

Last night I watched Sidney Poitier in his Oscar winning role of Homer Smith in Lillies of the Field (1963). This was one of two films I received yesterday. I was very happy with the picture quality and sound. A truly delightful movie.

 -

The second film I received was Multiplicity (1996) It stars Michael Keaton and Andie MacDowell. This was a clever and entertaining movie that really shows off Michael Keaton's talents. Unfortunately the 4x3 pan and scan version doesn't do the special effects justice. It frequently cuts off charaters on the sides. Never the less the quality and color of this print is very good and still very enjoyable to watch.

Just been running through some of my Ealing and Blackpool buys. A colour Pepe Le Peu cartoon, as described it has excellent colour, a B&W sound Inspector Willoughby cartoon "Phoney Express" (I actually managed to buy this also in Super 8, though that is colour silent) a 1945 Castle Films newsreel review of the year and a reel of silent "offcuts" from the LWT TV series of Dick Turpin. The last is a mixture of single & double perf stock (which is why I failed at first to notice it was on the spool unrewound from its last showing) that has some faded shots and some pristine colour.

All in all a good collection from the events.

Saw several Laurel and Hardy film:
1) Blotto
2) Oliver the Eight
3) Going bye-bye

All are 16mm reels and with sound. FYI- I got these films for my condo organization and showed them. They are free loan films from the Enoch Pratt- library. Over 2,000 16mm films.
They are available through interlibrary loan. Some prints are better than others. Don't expect a prefect print. Some are get; others not so great. Also, All films have "Public Performance Rights".

I was prepared for the worse as the film I bought for "soundies" turned to be when I cleaned it with Filmguard a redish cartoon. Well, the cartoon is good, the colour went back with the filter and there is even a song in :-) Other films : a 1930's documentary of Palestine, then a film (from the early sixties ?) about Israël (it was interesting to see the changes with the preceeding reel). All these were in English. I screened also two films in French : a newsreel (received from David Guest at Blackpool) ans a documentary (in black and white) about Rwanda.

I screened a print I just received from Denmark. Falling in Love (1984) starring Robert Deniro, Meryl Streep, Harvey Keitel, and Jane Kaczmarek. Color and sound very good. The audio track is in English with Danish subs. This was the first film I've bought that arrived on cores instead of reels. At first I wasn't sure what to do...but I found some assistance in a thread here on the forum and got the two cores transferred. [Smile]

After watching two footbal playoff games I was ready to set down to a film last night. A generous bowl of hot buttered popcorn in hand...I fired up my Elmo 16CL and watched Time After Time (1979).

Ive got a backlog of several features that ive bought recently that I haven't had the chance to screen - its finding the time to give them a clean and the run them on my bell and howell TQ1 - the films in question are - Robert Shaw in Swashbuckler (scope), Roy Scheider in The Last Embrace, Charles Bronson in The Valachi Papers, Tom Selleck in Lassiter, Anthony Newley in Mr Quilp, Farah Fawcett in Sunburn, Charlton Heston in The last hard men and Robert Redford in Little fauss and big halsy. Still - when I eventually watch them - i'll enjoy screening them.

Janice,

Agreed, I mirror your review.
This is a great film with a terrific cast, story and an absolutely gorgeous print on 16mm.
NO DOUBLE ENTENDRE INTENDED.

Red Fox printed the complete feature on Super 8mm sound too, but 16mm would be my choice.

Just as a try out after fitting a 4.8w 12v LED (the sort used in down lighters) powered externally to my B&H 2962 I watched an episode of "Catweazle" (Castle Suburac) a 2ft picture projected onto a putty coloured wall.
Sorry no pictures, but it has always been a bluish print and using a cool white LED it looked even bluer. Np pinking as on Agfa Gaevert stock. The picture was brighter than I had thought/hoped. I tried this as I hope to transfer some film to DVD and didn't want to use the 250w lamp. Now I'm wondering if I might use this set up more if I don't want a larger picture.

Tonight I screened my latest 16mm film purchase The Graduate (1967). Sound and picture quality was great. If I had to pick my favorite movie of all times...this would be it. Paul Simon's brilliant soundtrack kept playing in my head long after the movie was over..."Hello darkness my old friend..." [Cool] Shots of Dustin Hoffman driving across the Oakland Bay Bridge and Berkeley brought back lots of memories of that time for me.

Janice that is a GREAT GREAT movie. What I love about it is how it changes as you age. When I was young I treated it as a comedic romp, rooting for Benjamin. As I get older though I see the sadness inherent in the film, permeating every adult character. And the ending - oh the ending!

Wish I'd kept my 'scope print, but it was a fading, beat up ex-library print.

Brian,

I want to apply your application to my projector, the Eiki 3585 projector and I live in the USA. Are you familiar if a 4.8w 12v LED will operate in the 3585 and are there any modifications necessary?
 
Posted by Janice Glesser (Member # 2758) on March 28, 2017, 02:00 PM:
 
Ditto Stuart...Mike Nichols does a masterful job of juxtaposing humor and sadness in The Graduate. This film has many layers and it's themes and characterizations are just as valid today as they were 50 years ago.
 
Posted by Janice Glesser (Member # 2758) on May 01, 2017, 12:16 AM:
 
Here's another good Dustin Hoffman movie....Kramer vs. Kramer (1979). Both Hoffman and Streep are at their best. The young actor, Justin Henry, was perfect for the roll and was nominated for an oscar. This movie has a little bit of everything and the quality of the print was terrific.

very good print Janice.
Tonight for the first time,(at last) we viewed our scope print of Kidnapped. A first for us and we were more than happy with this experience, Pin sharp edge to edge picture. Great sound and also excellent colours. Print from Dave Guest, & a thank you to Clyde who sold us the 38mm Sankor lens in order for me to get the right image size. Now i want it even bigger. Once i get that Draper fixed screen up i will let you know how we get on [Wink]

We arnt too good great at screen capturing as we use an old digi camera while viewing so you certainly dont get the true colours here.

Thanks Ross, it is a great little film.
BUT, tonight, the opposite end of the scale,
Cross of Iron.
This was the big big purchase for my Brother recently. I saw this film on ebay described as "a mint print of a great film". The screenshots showed this and with a buy it now or nearest offer i had to jump straight in where my offer was accepted. Supplied on 3 x 1600ft spools this copy surely cant have been projected more than a handful of times. No colour fade, fantastic colours and a perfect crisp pin sharp image which my crabby digi camera really cannot pick up. It is a great war film, ( i know these arnt everyone's cup of tea), and the only war film that Sam Peckinpah directed. This was a pure chance find as i was surfing,(as they say) ebay and just stumbled on it by mistake. The film arrived within 48 hours of payment, i gave it a light clean with filmguard, i did a last day tweek on the pressure pad of the Elf and bugger me it all went perfect tonight. There isn't a line anywhere to be seen, only two very good cement splices that had i not have noticed them upon cleaning i wouldn't have known they were there.
This one is a very big deal for me as my Brother always said he wished he could get this title on super 8 but aside a worn 400 footer nothing came our way. Hugh Scott did inform us that there was a German 3 x 400 ft released that often comes up on ebay but they generally have some fade and will need re-recording into English which isn't something we do, now he has his top title off his bucket list. [Cool] [Wink]

If it's any consolation mate, I can never find stock markings and codes either. I gave up years ago even trying to look for them among the sprocket edge on Super 8mm. [Big Grin] [Wink]

Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on May 19, 2017, 04:41 PM:
 
I have three lenses now,( this amount of Len's was not intended), i have the 25mm which is great for the 4:3 films and gives a large image in a short throw, but for scope,(as kindly pointed out to me on here) the image is too large,only as i dont have a big enough screen yet. I have a standard lens which is a superb image but way too small, then i have,(as recommended by many on here) the 38mm which is perfect in my film room for the scope shows. Ref kidnapped images on here, i also use with this lens the zoom converter which works brilliantly. and for scope i use the Sankor 16D with the larger 48mm rea barrel.

Tom a great copy of KIDNAPPED you have there. You lucky man.

Of course being a Scot and being descended from the Stewarts of Appin on my mothers side this story is very close to my heart.

My mother would not let a Campbell in the house when I was younger. This made things hard for me as my then best friend
was a Campbell. She gave in the end though. WE Scots do not
forgive or forget easily its in our genes.

I always shed a tear when I visit Culloden Moor.

I was never sure about Michael Caine playing the role of Alan Breck Stewart but he manages it fine.
A nice film score by Roy Budd too.

The last time I showed this at the ODEON ABERDEEN CINEMA it
was part of a double bill with TRIPLE ECHO starring Oliver Reed
and Glenda Jackson. I thought it was a strange double bill though.

[Smile] [Smile] [Smile]
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on May 20, 2017, 07:00 AM:
 
Thanks David and a great story there to. I wondered why they cast Michael Caine but i think he did it well, the ideal choice back then i would have thought could have been Sean Connery or at the very least A Scottish Actor. Still one of Caine's most underrated and best movies. That opening music as the title comes up is a perfect match to.It's the one thing i always remembered after seeing the movie for the first time.
The print is excellent and even better than i was expecting and a very good price from David Guest.

Tonight i put up All That Jazz, Starring Roy Scheider, Jessica Lang, with John Lithgow. Directed by Bob Fosse the film is a semi-autobiographical fantasy based on aspects of Fosse's life and career as a dancer, Choreographer and director.
Mounted on 3 x 1600ft spools this one does have some light fade, but once again these images appear to exaggerate this as for some reason reds come out annoyingly much redder than they are. As always i use an old poopy digi camera set on auto. I like to concentrate on the film rather than taking pictures. All these are from the final reel and the brilliant finale number bye bye life, (from the Everly Brothers bye bye Love)

The one thing i remember about this film when it was reviewed by Barry Norman here in the UK on BBC 1s film 79 was the fact that aside a bit of minor nudity it was given an X certificate here as it showed the real opening, (quite gruesome), of a chest with the heart pumping away during a musical number on reel two. I will spare you those images [Big Grin]
Still a very good film with some excellent performances and super foot tapping song and dances. (Some quite erotic).

I watched Mulitiplicity (1996). I remember when I first watched this print I was disappointed in the pan and scan...but for some reason this time it didn't bother me. Michael Keaton is a terrific actor. I don't think I really appreciated how good an actor until the last few years with his performances in "Birdman" (he should have won the oscar) and "Spotlight."

Tom...Multiplicity may not be one of Keaton's best movies...but it is entertaining and cleaver. He plays 4 characters...three are clones. The clones do his regular work so he can have more time for himself. Check out this scene. Considering the date this movie was made the special effects are pretty convincing. The clone in this scene was made from another clone so he isn't as sharp [Smile] Totally funny!

I watched Tom Selleck, Jane Seymour, and Bob Hoskins in Lassiter (1984). Selleck is a cat burglar who is given the choice by the FBI to either steal millions in gems from the Nazi Embassy or go to prison. Colors in the film are gorgeous. There are a few green lines that appear occasionally, but overall a great print.

Hi Janice,

I bought a print of Lassiter a few months ago - not had time to watch it yet. I've also just received Angela Lansbury in The Mirror Crack'd and the 60's movie full of some British Pop Stars along with Ron Moody - Every Day's a Holiday - hopefully i'll have the time to watch them soon.

Dear Tom,

thank you for that kind words. Yes, I did really make a big catch. The filmstock is AGFA S2. The print is in a pretty good shape and the camera, with which I shot the screen, should be mentioned too, it´s Cannon EOS 750...

Here is another gem out of my collection, which I have screen these days.
It´s an AGFA Gefaert print which have a mechanical degeneration of almost zero. Looks like that this print hasn´t seen much projectors :-)
The movie is called "Tintorera".
This is a really entertaining movie from the fabulos mexican director Rene Cardona Jr. This film was shot in 1977. He casted for this picture the lovley Susan George, the sympathetic Hugo Stiglitz and the real handsome Andrés Garcia.

The story:
Hugo, Susan and Andrés meets each other at the beach of a mexican coastline. The became real good friends. They called themselves the 3 musketeers.
The share everything with each other even the bed. Now the have a triangle relationship. And after a real good time, Andrés would like to show Hugo and Susan how to hunt sharks and that would became disastrous and ends up deadly.

The dice have fallen for Braindead - 1992 - New Zealand - Director: Peter Jackson with Timothy Blame and Diana Penalver.
This was Peter Jackson´s thrid full feature movie. A highlight of the horror-comedy genre. Packed with a lot of black humor, parody of other horror movies and gallons of blood. An incredible movie.

The Story: An expedition into the 50s find a new species of animal on a remote island and they bring it to Newtown into the zoo.
The naive Lionel and his grilfriend Paquita makes a trip to that zoo.There, Lionel´s mother sneaks after them and get bitten from that ratmonkey.
Now she is infected with a virus, and she is slowly turning into a zombie.
Linoel hid her in the cellar. Then some more people get´s infected and as Linoel´s greedy onkel celebrates a party in that house, the zombies mixes up with the party guests and the hell breaks lose....

...an AGFA print in an amazing good shape....Love ´em...

...This monkey goes to Newtown...

Thank you Peter for that gem.

This time I chose Scanners, my favourite David Cronenberg movie.
Scanners - Canada 1981 - Director: David Cronenberg with Steven Lack, Jennifer O´Neill, Michael Ironside, Lawrance Dane, Patrick McGoohan...

A fantastic, intense and in some scenes disturbing movie.

Scanners are offsprings of test persons which was involved into a medical experiment. They have specific mental skills with those they could control or harm other people...

Tonight i viewed what is a xmas present from my Mum, (dear of her) to my Brother,
The brilliant 1970 movie Waterloo. This is a flat version as the scope fugi print was way out of my price range, (would still love to get hold of one if price was right), but despite a little Eastman colour shift it has fair to good colours. Unfortunatly, as always, my little digital camera does a very poor job in actually showing you how good it really is.
A very good film, great cast, and nice pin sharp image, the up side of the print to compensate for the slight colour shift is the actual print, (now i have cleaned it up and re-spooled onto 3 instead of 4 reels), is in very good condition with no lines that i can see worth mentioning. This appears to be an ex TV print.
Not a CGI shot in site, just great acting, great action and a field full of real human extras.

This time I have chosen a film, which I havn´t seen for year - Dead & Buried a creepy and fantastic movie. (Agfa print)

Dead & Buried - USA 1981 - Director: Gary Sherman with James Farentino, Melody Anderson, Jack Albertson, Dennis Redfield, Lisa Blount, Robert Englund, Glen Morshower

A fantastic, intense and in some scenes disturbing movie.

James Farentino is a sheriff in a small fishing village Potter´s Bluff at the american east coast. As he was called to a trafffic accident, he finds at the accident site a heavily burnt, but still living man, which was immediately delivered to the local hospital. At this time he cann´t imagine, that accident has only been feigned and the man is a non local photographer, who has been attacked and set on fire at the beach by some villagers...

Holger, where do you get these excellent prints form. Dead & Buried was a horror film i liked also. I first saw this in the cinema and noticed it was by Dan O Bannon who also wrote Alien and Dark Star. I have this on DVD but it is slightly censored.
 
Posted by Holger Kiebler (Member # 554) on August 02, 2017, 11:39 AM:
 
Hi Tom, I really do have prints in a very poor shape, regarding the colours and mechanical wear, that´s for sure.
I first saw Dead & Buried on TV, I was to young at that time for the movie into the cinema. To watch such a movie in the cinema must be amazing.
Your DVD is censored, I´m sure there will be an uncut release, but maybe you will get lucky and find this on 16...
Yes indeed in last time I was lucky and have had the opportunity to purchase such gems like the "Braindead" or "Robocop" which are in nearly perfect condition.

Here is a new purchase of mine. It´s a movie with which I grew up. First I have seen this action movie on vhs and now I´m able to watch it on 16mm :-) (AGFA Filmstock).

Missing in Action - USA - 1984 - Director: Joseph Zito with Chuck Norris, M. Emmet Walsh, David Tress, James Hong, Leonore Kasdorf and Jean-Claude Van Damme (Stuntman)

A delegation from the US goverment should finalize, in Vietnam, the negotiations about GIs, which are still imprisoned. Captain James Braddock accompanies the delegation to Vietnam. Once he arrives, he sets off from the strictly guarded group to find evidence on his own, for still holding US soldiers imprisoned. He sneaks into the house of a high-ranking-officer and forced him to testify where the prisoners are. After he get this information, Braddock bought a huge amount of weapons and then he cleans up the jungle...

So enjoy the pictures :-).

Well done Holger Kiebler for owning Braindead on 16mm ... a classic kiwi-made film here in New Zealand!
It's amazing that someone in a different country (Germany) owns it and there's probably no-one here in New Zealand that owns a 16mm print ...amazing and also great [Smile]

I have had a break of serveral years in which I didn´t collect 16mm movies. Now I´m back, getting addicted to this hobby again. And one of the first movies which I found to purchase was this Braindead. Yes, that´s amazing:-). And really , no New Zealand collector does own a print of it ?

Just ordered up Blue Thunder with Roy Shieder, cant wait for this one. Its a film that my Mum took me to see in 1983 when it was having a special pre release showing at our Drake cinema on a Sunday morning. I cant remember how she acquired the tickets but i have never forgotten this film so its going to bring back some fond memories and i will surprise my Mum (86 years young) who will be coming to the film den for the first viewing.
As it happens, two weeks ago she actually asked me, & i quote,"i bet you dont have that picture film about that helicopter i took you to see when you were young, what was it called with Roy whats his name, that was such a good film and i havnt seen it since"? ~Well well, if Mr Guest didn't have this one so i had no choice but to buy it just for my Mummy.She does so much and has bought me films for just about every Christmas and Birthday since i bought my first Elmo, many many films in mine & my Brothers collections were presents from Mum.

Missing in Action II is one of my favourite action movies, which I have seen as I was a teenager. I first saw this movie on vhs, but our vhs rental tape, here in germany was cut, so It took years, untill I could seen it uncut.
A short while ago, I was able to purchase it on 16mm.

I love this "Missing in Action series", in my opinion, this "Missing in Action" series are Chucks best filmworks, because these movies has a greater budget, so exotic jungle sets, hard action and adventure as well.
For the second part, they get Brian May for the soundtrack. He was in really good mood, so he did a gorgeous job, in some strong moments this May sound reminds strongly on Mad Max :-).

Oh by the way, this is an Agfa print.

In the Vietnam War, Colonel Braddock's helicopter is shot down over enemy land. The sadistic commander Yin holds the men for years in captivity.
He wants to force the Americans to confess alleged war crimes. In order to obtain this confession, he frees his sadistic nature and torture the men physically and psychologically.
When Yin burns a GI alive, Braddock flees into the jungle and starts a hard, uncompromising and long overdue campaign of vengeance.

Missing in Action II - The Beginning - USA 1984 - Director: Lance Hool with
Chuck Norris, Soon-Tek Oh, Steven Williams, Bennett Ohta - Music: Brain May

An épisode of The Projectors in which they use a cine projector. And an incredible found from the Roubaix film fair. A 16 mm film with a magnetic soundtrack. It appeared to be an "amateur" film. Someone could use his camera in a studio and shouted four French actors talking (like for an interview). The two first ones are the famous Jean Marais and Bourvil. I don't know the third actor but the last one is Jean Dessailly who was famous when the film was shot (in the 60's) for having played in a TV serie (Le chevalier de Maison Rouge). Probably the kind of film you find once in your life.

Last night I watched Victor / Victoria... again. I had watched this print back in March when I first got it. This time I watched it with my younger son Darrin. He had never seen it before, but I knew he would like it. Darrin did musical theater for several years after high school. He loved it! Great print...good sound.

Last night, my very first excursion into 16mm!

I bought a Kodak Pageant from Gary Crawford at CineSea 16.

Hanging around down there as I have these past 8 years, I couldn't help but notice some really nice prints. Just like when I finally gave in and went into Super-8 sound 15 years ago, I figured I wanted in!

When I was 25, I bought a brand new Mustang GT and showed up at the dealership pretty inexperienced driving a stick shift. Much the same, I dove into manual threading and it came out OK!

The first film? "Three little Bruins in a Canoe", but this time with sound.

This little film seems haunt me!

How I Solved my Bear Problem

(For a film I at least pretend to hate it never seems very far away!)

Well, there's much to do! The hardware to connect this beast to my mixer doesn't even exist as far as I know, and that's OK, because even if it actually does I'm going to design it and build it! (That's what makes it a hobby)

I didn't even need to discuss it with my wife: keeping this tombstone on the dining room table is a little nervy even for me, so I will stow it between sessions, maybe give it a reserved spot down in the den!

I would also make the same wager. He called it first! Congrats on getting the Pageant, Steve. It's a great projector.
 
Posted by Steve Klare (Member # 12) on October 18, 2017, 05:58 AM:
 
I don't know about that...I have this inner creed about trying to keep things simple, although being a film collector sometimes violates that even without 35mm!

Gary sold it to me with an extra 1.5" lens so I can put it with my Super-8 machines. You see, with the two inch lens the Pageant would have wound up exactly where my wife's recliner belongs! (Optics has no respect for marriage...)

I'll keep the 1.5" lens for normal operations, but I think for special occasions I may jump to the 2" lens, shove the recliner aside and use a projector table to reduce the machinery noise reaching the audience.

(Maybe I should find some 16mm prints my wife really likes!)
 
Posted by Holger Kiebler (Member # 554) on November 18, 2017, 07:41 AM:
 
I have started to treat all my 16mm prints with a filmcleaner.
This time I chose the animal horror movie Dogs - USA 1976 - Burt Brinckerhoff for the cleaning and then of course a projection occurred.

It´s a disturbing animal horror in which domestic dogs turn into a lethal pack caused by a goverment experiment. This leads into the death of many small town inhabitants.

I like this movie - It´s good old american film making of the 70s.

Sorry, this are all cellphone pictures.

Just got back from a week in SoCal for Thanksgiving. My neighbor picked me up from the bus station and also greeted me with a 16mm movie that was delivered while I was gone. ONCE UPON A CRIME directed by Eugene Levy... this 1992 film has lots of stars... . James Belushi, Cybill Sheperd, Richard Lewis, John Candy, and George Hamilton. It's a fun who-done-it murder mystery. Great looking print.

I like this version of a Christmas Carol even though 1951 people consider it the best. I think Gene Lockhart is the best Bob Cratchit. Sad Lionel Barrymore had an accident and could not play scrooge.I saw it sell for 100 recently was curious what's missing from the edited version.

I have a nice Kodak original of the 1935 version that I watched.

Merry Christmas Janice
 
Posted by Janice Glesser (Member # 2758) on December 22, 2017, 04:16 PM:
 
Hi Brian...The edited version is much shorter in length...one 1600ft. reel running about 40mins. I haven't done a comparison with the full-length version...but for example: No snowball throwing scene (Bob Cratchet hit Scrooge with a snowball)...no scene inside the church or outside (sliding on the ice) and all visits from the angles have been trimmed.

My copy came with some sprocket damage which I have made an effort to repair. It runs fine through 90% of the film. I'm still working on getting the very last few frames to not jump. [Smile]

Witness. one of my favourite 80s movies and thanks to a forum member here, i now have my own full feature copy. I never thought that would happen,
The print is on Agfa stock so superb quality is guaranteed and the image is as pin sharp as sharp can be. The sound is, as always on 16mm optical, stunning with great clarity and bass.
I bought this at an excellent price and yes, there are some minor base line black lines but for most of the film they are hardly noticeable, i am very pleased with all my 16mm buys and am very happy that i changed my mind about getting shot of all my 16mm and sticking with 8. Super 8 is my main stay but no serious collector can ignore what is available on 16 and in both LPP and Agfa non fade stock. Simply superb and better value for money,
This film, IMHO, is one of Harrison Fords best movies, Believe me, as always, these images do not do this print any justice what so ever, the film is bright, vivid colours and crystal clear [Wink]

Tonight's screening is a real classic; Ursula Andress, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in 'She'. This would have been no 2 on my list of most desirable prints. Who would have thought back in 1965 when I saw it on the big screen that all these years later I would have a copy. I wouldn't have if it wasn't for the extreme generosity of friend and former forum member, Hugh Scott, who gave it to me when he obtained an IB Tech print.

Yesterday I projected my Agfa print of "Rituals" - 1977 - by Peter Carter.
One of my favorite movies which combines the slasher-horror genre with the survival thriller, I would call ´em also as a modern adventure.
You will find also a great cast, which do a fine acting.... Hal Holbrook, Lawrence Dane, Robin Gammell...
A very emotional film to me....
Enjoy the images.

I haven't mastered the art of screenshots like Tom, Janice, and Holger. Tonights viewing was Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn in 'Ulysses' (1954). The print is on SP stock, which goes a golden brown, but still some decent colour left, though colour or no colour has never stopped me from enjoying any film.

Watched this episode at long last, bought it a few weeks ago now but it wasn't the episode i should have ordered, a slip up on my behalf, but its a good un. As you can see, (although these images are nowhere near as good as what you see), the quality is top notch, Pin sharp, superb colours and excellent sound. Originally intended to be Dennis Waterman's last it ends with his character Terry, having a falling out and quiting as Minder to Arthur Daley and as you see in the last screenshot, this was due to be his departure from the series but he stayed for a further couple of years.
These programmes were noted for there guest stars and this episode is no exception with two excellent old British stars in some of there last roles,
Kenneth Cope, (Marty from Randell and Hopkirk) and Ronald Fraser, well known British actor, playing the role of Goddard.
In this episode,
Private investigator Caroline Selby seeks Arthur's help in locating eccentric recluse and inventor Albert Goddard, who has come into an inheritance. Seeking a rake-off, Arthur acts as go-between, installing Albert in a 'safe house' - rather against his will - and trying to palm off one of the inventions as his own. The finder's fee is, however, paltry compared to the sum involved. Chisholm, meanwhile, finds he has literally been 'stitched up' on a visit to his tailor.

That is a superb print Tom, with perfect colour. The screenshots are superb as well. It may not be the episode you originally wanted, but looks one worth having.

Although i am not a huge fan of Mash, this episode came up for sale on an old Paul Foster list when i first came into 16mm way back.I was hoping for one of the early series as these were by far the best, however, this episode is one of the latest in the last series, originally bought in order to have something to show.
This one is episode number 250, Series 11, (the final series), originally aired on January 3rd 1983. I was intending to view this tonight with an intention of selling it but to my surprise after a clean up, this reel is in mint condition with no scratches to be seen anywhere and the colour has no fade so i am assuming this to be an Agfa print. This is the first time i have put this reel through a projector for around 8 years.
This episode,
"U.N., the Night and the Music"
Three U.N. delegates come to the 4077th and make a lasting impression on members of the camp, while B.J. treats a patient whose leg injury may require an amputation.

Looks a great print Tom; i'm not a fan, and think I only watched one complete episode; i'm only familiar with two of the cast, Alan Alda, and Harry Morgan, who had the distinction of not only being in 'The Glenn Miller Story', but with the real Glenn Miller in 'Orchestra Wives'.
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on January 10, 2018, 04:38 PM:
 
it is a good print, i am in two minds as to whether or not to move it on in favour of something better.
 
Posted by Robert Crewdson (Member # 3790) on January 10, 2018, 04:41 PM:
 
I would think it would be a good seller, especially if you use those screenshots.

tonight was a film for my Brother,
Bugles in the afternoon.
one of his favourite Westerns, while i only like a handful of good westerns i have to say this one is actually a really good film starring Ray Milland and Hugh Marlow.
I bought this one for jut £60 just before xmas on 2 x 1600ft spools, i wasn't expecting too much due to the age but what a surprise, a quick clean up and check, there were only two splices in the whole film, both 1st class, it has an excellent pin sharpe b/w image and as always excellent sound with hardly a mark on it. Unfortunatly my screenshots are not good and appear to make the print look dupe but it is actually a very good contrast print, the digi camera never really shows my films as they really are up there.
This now means that we can sell on the 4 x 400ft STD 8 version we have had. This one is completely uncut.

A little bit of useless info for you,
During the titles you will notice a blanked out name, this was due to the headhunt of so called communists during this period of time in Hollywood.
Ray Milland Served in the Household Cavalry in the UK. An expert shot, he became a member of his company's rifle team, winning many prestigious competitions, including the Bisley Match in England and was a guard at Buckingham Palace.

Looks a very good print Tom; I've seen the film twice on TV and it's very good. I remember Mountain doing a 200ft extract in Super 8, but when I got their catalogue, I think the feature had already been deleted. Thanks for the info on Ray Milland, I didn't know these details.
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on January 11, 2018, 04:14 PM:
 
Cheers Robert, it is a good action packed movie and unusual to see Hugh Marlow playing a bad guy. The one we are going to be selling is the 4 x 400ft standard 8 feature in its original mountain boxes.
We bought this 16mm feature in order to own it completely uncut, the std 8 feature is only slightly abridged.

Here is a further favorit out of my collecting.
Suna no onna/Woman in the Dunes - Japan 1964 - Director: Hiroshi Teshigahara with Eiji Okada and Kyoko Kishida

An entomologist went out to the coast, looking for certain insect species for his research, he plans to write a book about this subject. In the afternoon, he relaxes a bit and misses the last bus back to the city. Residents from a nearby village meet him and offer him a resident in the dunes, were a lovely young woman hosts him. As he went away, he recognized, that he cann´t leave this accomodation in which he resident, because of impassable dunes. Now he was forced to stay there...

I love this movie. This movie runs approximately 147 min , but it never get´s boring. The soundtrack is disturbing and strange, matches very good to that picture. It doesn´t have to be always an exploitation movie:-).

This is what I finally got to see today.
I dont know if you are into these educational films at all? Not very 'sexy' or desirable like a feature film, but great to see my projector running well and with 12" reels! (thanks again Richard)

This is A National Film Board of Canada movie called "The Endless Sea"
Not sure what year I dont know my Roman numberals
The actual film is much better quality than these pictures suggest

Tonight we viewed the fantastic Dances With Wolves. I would like thank to thank Kevin Clarke for this one, it is a stunning LPP polyester print, this is the flat version but i cant say that bothers me one bit, this film is A1 be it flat or scope. We are over the moon to have this in our humble collection of 16mm movies.

Hello Tom

I'm delighted to hear you are happy with your films, quite a few I've sold recently have gone to keen genuine collectors such as you and you brother all of whom have let me know how pleased they are - brings us back to the most important part of this hobby which is enjoying watching films on real film.

I'll keep you posted if I have others to sell from your wish list in future.

Kevin

PS: You would get the 'Screenshot Taker Of The Year' award if there was one !

Thanks Kevin, i wish i could get the colours more like what you see on screen and in better focus.
I look forward to your next sales if you should have any [Wink]
 
Posted by Robert Crewdson (Member # 3790) on February 06, 2018, 07:00 AM:
 
Flat works very well with a lot of films Tom; you would find it very very difficult to find another copy as good as this.
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on February 07, 2018, 01:31 AM:
 
I must admit, while scope is good i am no longer bothered if i obtain a film in the flat format when its on 16mm. The reason is simple, many super 8s that sre sqeezed up to 4:3 the image can often suffer with grain or soft image,(not all), so i thought 16mm would be the same but this and hannie caulder have shown that this isnt the case, even the flat version of Waterloo we had was pin sharp, i only re purchased another copy of that film because ours had fade and the new one is Agfa and scope. So as you say Robert,flat is fine and with 16mm we are more than happy with 4:3,
This particular title is utterly outstanding in its image.

I'm with you: a print that good is OK flat. Nice catch, Tom, congratulations.

Matt, you aren't alone in watching educational films, as I do too. Running them takes me back to school days in the fifties on the 16mm projector, and I'm not alone in this apparently.
I remember the class being marched off to the town hall for a showing of 'The rival world', by the Shell film unit about the problems of locusts and other insects in developing countries. The aerial shots of locusts splattering against the plane windshields and the effects of terrible diseases had an incredible impact on us. I managed to get a copy a few months ago.

Holger that looks fantastic, to get a 40 minute scope edition of this on 8 would cost around 250/300, id rather have this 16mm feature, great looking print once again. [Wink]
 
Posted by Holger Kiebler (Member # 554) on February 20, 2018, 09:27 AM:
 
Thank you Tom. Yes, this print is indeed great.
I was suprised, as I projected them the first time, because there was almost no lines and this was a rental print....40 min for 250/300 USD on 8mm isn´t a bargain :-). Is this a Derann print ? Derann released some of these hollywood pictures like Terminator, Aliens, Alien Independence Day....
 
Posted by Matt Darr (Member # 6270) on February 22, 2018, 10:43 AM:
 
I dont understand how these 'newer' movies exist on 16mm
Are they copies of the workprint or screeners?
Or has someone converted it from VHS or DVD?
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on February 22, 2018, 11:50 AM:
 
No these prints are genuine. Im not sure what the last 16mm fim was but they certainly went much further in years than 8mm
 
Posted by Mark Mander (Member # 340) on February 22, 2018, 01:11 PM:
 
I heard somewhere the last 16mm print released was The Incredibles 2004,Mark
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on February 23, 2018, 04:07 PM:

last 16mm prints of any titles were 2006, and very limited.

The one from whom I purchae this prints has had them for rental....These are no convertations from DVD or VHS. These prints does have a proper lap-head with the titel and other infos of this movie....
I agree with you Tom. 16mm prints has been produced till the beginning of the 21st century...
My youngest are from 1998 and 1999.
It´s a shame that there will be no more movies on this system, because the quality of the output has been getting better and better. Poor film material, which turns red, was sorted out....
 
Posted by Matt Darr (Member # 6270) on February 28, 2018, 12:51 PM:
 
Sorry I wasnt accusing them of being fake, I'm genuinely surprised they made 16mm versions of these 'new' movies.

I've just seen the posts about when the last library features printed on 16mm were. I did quite a bit of research on this and I'd be very happy to be proved wrong if there's evidence to the contrary, but the most recent titles I discovered were a few 2007 films in an Australian library. The most recent elsewhere was 'Cars' (2006), which the US Swank library used to have.

I don't think the 16mm and Super 8 prints that Christopher Nolan had printed of 'Dunkirk' are available to hire anywhere, but it's a nice thought!
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on March 06, 2018, 03:17 PM:

Watched my print of Dear Heart (1964). I've had a digital version of this movie for years and finally found a 16mm copy. This is a slightly quirky romantic comedy starring Glenn Ford and Geraldine Page. I've always loved this movie and after watching it's hard to get Henry Mancini's title song out of your head.

I hope to post some screen caps after my next viewing.

Another very good print there Holger,
Over the last two evenings or so i have viewed my latest film, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. The print is on LPP polyester stock and the actual quality of the image and sound is out of this world, Reel one, (in particular) suffers from some green emulsion lines which is a real shame but it's a film i always wanted to own. A film with everything in it, action, romance and a great cast with Sean Connery making an uncredited appearance.

Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on March 20, 2018, 03:48 PM:
 
Holger, You have to take the movie not too serious but it is full of great action, and Alan Rickman plays a superb baddie, lots of fun and big names of the day, and being a theatrical version it is a little more brutal than when it is on TV but even better on the big screen. The print is stunning but this one does suffer with some emulsion scratches mostly on reel 1 but there are some marks on all the reels which is such a shame. Mr Guest did look after me on this though so thank you to David on this. [Wink]

Yesterday I watched the picture "Dreamscape"
Dennis Quaid enters dreams of patients which suffers on psychoses to help them.... It´s a real fantastic sci-fi movie with a great cast:
Dennis Quaid, Kape Capshaw, Max von Sydow, Christopher Plummer and Eddie Albert....
This is an Eastman LLP print, amazing colours with very sharp focus and a minimum of wear.

I wounder how this movie could pass the MPAA with a PG rating, because there is a little bit of nudity, violence and gore and some profanity.
I don´t have a problem with this rating, that´s just a thought.

Hello Dominique, screening something with in regard of music on 16mm is great. I love it too :-).

Yesterday I watched Ricochet with a very young Denzel Washington and an amazing John Lithgow which plays a criminal called Blake. This Blake character acts sadistic and ruthless very convincingly performed by John Lithgow.

While the end credits run, the track "Ricochet" was implemented performed by Ice-T, very rough gangsta-rap...

This print is adapted scope and on an Agfa filmstock.
A very entertaining movie, isn´t it?

I am not a technical repair man by any stretch of the imagination.If my projector went "bang" that would be it... another search on ebay or a visit to David Guest's table at Blackpool.

However,inspired by Tom P in Plymouth's recent delve into 16mm, I decided I wanted to crank up the 16mm projector that I have had for years but had lay dormant for a long time due to a dodgy piece of wiring in the electric system in the back. So I put my fears aside, contacted a friend who lives at the other side of the Pennines who can repair anything from 8mm to 35mm (don't know if he has dabbled with a 70mm... but he might have) explained what I wanted to do and would it be okay? Taking his advice I did what I had to do. And......BINGO ! It worked! One of those beautiful solid Bell & Howell Filmosound 623 machines built like a tank...... complete with valves!

So, tonight, I had my first 16mm film show for several years and it worked a treat!
First it was a couple of Woody Woodpecker cartoons "Bat's In The Belfry" and "Fowled Up Falcon." Both black and white even though the credits said "color by Technicolor," Then it was the first 50 minutes of "The Towering Inferno" (flat and colour fading.... but who cares,for the price I paid for it!) and then a fairly recent purchase, an episode of Sgt.Bilko (Phil Silvers) in "Bilko's Casino"

Looking forward soon to seeing one of the few full length features I have on 16mm!

I just received an episode of Superman 1953 with George Reeves. In this episode in addition to Reeves playing Clark Kent and Superman...he also plays a thug that undergoes plastic surgery to look like Superman. Unfortunately his character sounds more like a punch-drunk fighter and has to undergo speech therapy. It's actually pretty funny. The whole caper is designed to pull off a 2 million dollar robbery and blame it on Superman.

Tonight we watched the excellent political thriller No Way out,
This is a film i have only seen the trailer for until tonight.
Dave Guest had a copy and sold it to me for a very good price, i am pleased to have got this one as Gene Hackman is one of my favourite actors.
It is also a coincidence that three of our 16mm features purchased in the last 6 months star Kevin Costner. I keep my fingers crossed that a copy of The Untouchables may one day find its way to me.

Good fortune indeed Tom. It's all good, glad you have it and thanks for sharing.

Well I've finally got round to watching my copy of The Deer Hunter in Scope. FIVE reels, 4 x 1600 and 1 x 800, my poor projector was put through its paces.

The film's on Eastman stock and as you can see the colours have shifted towards the pinkish reds.
Strangely though the first few minutes has good colour as can be seen in the first two frames.
The second reel had a couple of green emulsion lines which came and went.
Overall I enjoyed the film and was nice to finally watch a film in Scope.

Thank you Robert and Tom. Overall I'm happy with the print, just wish one film did not have to take up so much space. [Smile]

Yesterday, two Algerian shorts from the early '70 in French and set in France. Fading coulours but still very watchable. Then, a reel with extracts from French musical films from the 30's and 40's.

Steve, regarding your DAWN OF THE DEAD and CARRIE prints...I noticed both look letterboxed and without wear. Have these been sourced from BluRay and printed by Marco in Italy?
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on July 05, 2018, 04:13 PM:
 
Tonight was a big viewing for us. This is a film i really do enjoy although unfortunately, this one appears to be possibly a TV cut as it is edited for violence which, with this film, makes the whole viewing a bit dampened, especially as the 600ft Super 8 version has most of the bits in it that are edited out of this feature, However, what you do you want? The 30 minute super 8 version with a fading image but with the blood n guts in, or this two hour scope version with excellent image and colour, a few censored bits, and in this case, (and i knew this upon purchasing) a few jumpy bits where there is some damage on reel two, and at the very start of reel one?
In my case, i will now buy the Blu ray uncut edition as all the super 8 ones are now fading, (the one i have for sale on ebay is one of the much better ones) and i dont know when a full uncut theatrical version will show up on 16mm.
So, overall, we had a good viewing tonight of a classic Eastwood western.
It's great to see this on the big scope screen though.

Yesterday my projector have had the pleasure to produce:
Skull-A night of Terror or also known as Don´t turn out the Light.
This is a little amiable canadian horror-,action-exploiter of mine.
A canadian production from 1987 by Robert Bergman.

The Print:
This is an ex-rental razor-sharp AGFA print with almost no wear.
It looks like that this print was not lend really often, under my opinion, this movie didn´t hit the flavour of a big audience :-).

The story: Two police officers escort a violent prisoner and his companions to a jail. While the drive over land, they get into an ambush and the criminals get free. They escape to a farm house in which the family of one of the escorting police officers lives.
If you assume, that the bad guys do held the police officer´s family hostage and this police officer get on a deadly rampage to wipe them out one by one, to safe his family, you are right :-).

This is no award-worthy movie, but a real entertainy bad ass flick.
Enjoy the images.

Last night we viewed this excellent action packed,fact based war film, many of its actors went onto become big cinema and TV stars including, Woody Strode, Harry Guardino, Robert Blake, Norman Fell, Abel Fernandez, Gavin MacLeod, Harry Dean Stanton, and Martin Landau. A good b/w print with some light wear mainly at the start and end of the reels.

Hi Tom,
After Tuesday I'm on my 6 week break - and ive still got 7 or 8 16mm features to watch - so looking forward to that. High Plains Drifter looks like a great print - a shame its edited for TV - I try to avoid those prints if I can as I can always get uncut prints on blu ray and project via my NEC LCD projector linked to my Yamaha Sound Processor.

Quote Brian Stearns- posted July 16, 2018 11:53 PM
“DAWN OF THE DEAD and CARRIE were not shot in scope “

Right. I mentioned the pics of Steven’s prints he posted were letterboxed (not scope) which is unusual for 16mm prints of flat titles. The fact that they were both letterboxed 1:85 flat prints, both lowfade, and both seemingly lab new made me question if they were “reel” 16mm prints, struck from pure film elements, or if they were struck recently by Marco in Italy from a Blu-ray or DVD (which seems more likely to me judging from the pics)

Steven, care to confirm this?
 
Posted by Tom Photiou (Member # 130) on July 26, 2018, 02:43 PM:

Out of curiosity if films are struck from a Blu Ray or dvd source how is the sound transferred? Is it optical or magnetic in those cases?
 
Posted by Mike Williamson (Member # 796) on July 28, 2018, 01:35 AM:
 
The guy who makes these digital to 16mm print strikes an optical soundtrack on the prints.

Sorry Chaps,
High plains drifter [Wink]
As it happens i have now gone through the film foot by foot, done a few repairs and it now looks better, (after a firmguard clean), and also flows through much better without all the jumpy bits. so all in all, things are now much better. Still TV edited but one way or another i will sort that. [Wink]

Looks like rather than answer my query about whether his 16mm DAWN OF THE DEAD and CARRIE prints were blu ray to film kinescopes from Marco in Italy, Steve decided to delete those posts with the pics of them. (shrug)

I do hope, if people are making complete features using this process, that that info is being disclosed if they sell the print. I'd be pretty upset if I paid for a lowfade title and it showed up and was a bluray to film transfer.

Graham,

Fantastic images and this print appears to be on LPP stock.

Empire is my favorite of all SW sequels.

"Empire Strikes Back" very nice contrast, beautiful print.
 
Posted by Graham Ritchie (Member # 559) on August 28, 2018, 11:29 PM:
 
Thanks Everyone.

There is nothing on the edge of the film to indicate its LPP, someone did suggest to me it could be a technicolor print. I don't really know. I assume its origin was a pan/scan print for TV transmission years ago. I must admit I enjoyed watching this original edit, than the later Blu-ray taken from its re-release print shown at the cinema in the late 1990s.

A couple more from that night....

Great screenshots, superb print, Empire and the original Star Wars are the only two i like, Empire being, (IMO), the best of them all. I cant say any of the other star wars films are for me.
 
Posted by Graham Ritchie (Member # 559) on August 30, 2018, 01:35 AM:
 
I agree Tom. Once the Ewoks made an appearance in "Return of The Jedi" things went down hill [Smile]

However the "Phantom Menace" was not bad and later bought the Scope "Pod Race" from Derann and still have it included on a Scope reel of films. I was later lucky enough to be given the feature on 35mm.

After the "Phantom Menace" I lost track of the others, and at the cinema out here they did not do well. I felt people had got tired of the hole Star Wars thing. The "Force Awakens" being one of the worst. I thought after that one I had enough, but would give it one more chance with "Rogue One" which I thought was a big improvement, but have not watched any others after that one.

I hope one day that Disney will give the fans a original edit release of the first two films, "A New Hope" which I still call just Star Wars and of course the "Empire Strikes Back", as Spielberg did just that, giving the fans the option with his release of ET onto Blu-ray, anyway Disney would be on a winner if they followed suit.

Hemo the Magnificent
Yep The complete two reel high school educational film from Bell laboratories pink fade easier to watch especially if you’re squeamish super sharp clarity and the print in good condition all the way through only the pink fade is the problem

While trying to find something Else that I was not able to find I came across these reels that I had stored away in a can and wondered what is this only to my surprise and delight I remembered having it after I discovered it today.
 
Posted by Michael De Angelis (Member # 91) on September 16, 2018, 06:52 PM:
 
Chip,

Director Frank Capra made: "Hemo The Magnificent," and "Our Mr. Sun," that are my favorite and most entertaining above than the Disney's.

Graham,

I'm confident that your "Empire" print is definitely an LPP.

A good friend and I determined that the early LPP Kodak's were printed in '81-'82 without the LPP markings, overlapping the tail end of the Kodak SP's.

Making this LPP print one of the first on 16mm, because Empire was released in 1980.

It's an old, beat up TV print with VS, and rather grainy for a studio original, but Humphrey Bogart in the 1943 "Sahara" is just a great movie.

Did one of my smoothest manual changeovers in history between reel 2 and 3. Audience in attendance: zero. Drat.

Two documentaries (in French) : "Attention aux vipères" (Beware Of Vipers), the title tells everything : a well made educational film about...vipers and "Au pays des buveurs de sang" (In The Land Of The Blood Drinkers"), a film about animals Hunting and about a Massaï tradition.

Yes, Janice, it's a comedy. The translation of the title would be The Tamer. A clumsy man inherits by mistake of a circus but the condition is to perform Something. I like those pre-war films when people didn't know what was going to happen.

Another great print Janice, with good contrast. Not heard of this one either, but with Glen Ford and Angela Lansbury, it should be worth watching. So many old films that never get an airing these days on TV.
 
Posted by Janice Glesser (Member # 2758) on October 06, 2018, 10:07 AM:
 
Robert...You are correct that many older movies are seldom shown on TV anymore. Here in the U.S. the cable channel TCM (Turner Classic Movies} plays older and classic movies regularly. My mom who is 92 watches TCM daily and says they also show silent films on occasion.

It's getting darker earlier this time of year which means I can start watching my films earlier too. Last night I picked Continental Divide (1981) with John Belluchi and Blair Brown. My print has faded, but by adding filters some color is restored. I still very much enjoy this film.

I've been on a roll in watching my films. I'm making up for not watching very many films during the summer. Tonight it was Sidney Poitier in Lilies of the Field (1963). I was in high school when this movie came out and I saw it in the theater. This is a great B&W print with excellent contrast and sound.

Mississippi Burning, full uncut version,
Received this item today at a fantastic price, (just goes to show how often prices are just made up out of thin air).
This is simply a very well made film by an excellent British director, Alan Parker and the cast is made up of some of the best actors. Tense, atmospheric and never a dull moment.
This print is like new, it is in excellent shape throughout and is probably, price wise, by far the best purchase of my 16mm collecting to date. These images are from reel one only as i couldn't be bothered to take any more, this is a film that requires the audience to watch it, not play about with a camera all the way through.These images really do not do it justice, the greens are deep as are all the colours.

This is a german version of the movie.
It´s an amazing Agfa print with almost non wear.
I love this backwoods movie, it is one of Walter Hill´s best directing.
It is a mix out of adventure with action and a bid exploitation.

Hello! So last weekend I finally got around to watching my copy of Supergirl starring Helen Slater, no relation to Christian Slater;).

The last time I saw this film was back in late 80's early 90's and I must say it's not what I remembered it to be.
Quite cheesy, felt it was too fast paced in some bits and things just kept happening for the sake of an action scene. Let's just say it was no where as epic as it's cousin, Superman: The Movie.
All that being said it does have a some charm to it and its one of those films to watch on a rainy day.

This copy is on Eastman LPP (can someone tell me if Eastman LPP is polyester or acetate as I can detect a very faint smell of vinegar. If polyester then there shouldn't be any).
The sound was great as well as the picture. Probably one of the best "colour film" I have in my collection. Very rich in some scenes.
Had a couple of splices.

Overall it was an enjoyable watch:)

Supergirl
1984
Dir: Jeannot Szwarc (Jaws 2 fame)

A sure way to know that a film is Polyester based is to hold the reel up to the light while placing your hand behind the reel and if you see your hand then it's polyester film stock.

Poly stock is also thinner than triacetate.

Kodak LPP prints were produced on triacetate and polyester film stocks.

Tis the Season...and it's become a tradition to watch with my son "It's a Wonderful Life." I had a slight mishap this year however. I put a 1600ft take-up reel on when the movie reel was 2000ft...OPPPPS! Film started sliding off the take-up reel and twisting. It took both of us about 15 minutes to get it all untangled and back on the original reel...but no film was harmed and we moved on to watch the second reel with no problem.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

A 1915 silent film, Hogan out West. I projected the film at 18fps so there was flickering since I haven't the three blade shutters for the (Eiki) projector I used (and anyway it's not easy to switch the shutters on the model I have.

Dominique...The flicker probably gave the picture an authentic look...something like a hand-cranked projector.

Wow Tom [Cool]

That's one nice print of one of my favorite films. The color looks great.

Thanks Graham, it is a lovely print, it does have its fair share of base scratches but with colour and sharpness like this im more than happy to ignore those. [Wink]

Your 16mm print looks a lot better than my Blu-ray version.

"Witness" was made and directed by Peter Weir in 1985. One year later in 1986, Peter Weir once again directed Harrison Ford in another favorite of mine "The Mosquito Coast" The 1980s really did see some good films come out. [Smile]

Outstanding print Tom. "Witness" has been on my "want list" for a very long time. I'm hoping some day to find a copy.

Graham...My family accuses me of being stuck in the 80's...I'm not offended since some of the best movies and music were in that decade and that's when my sons were born [Smile] [Cool]

I do like movies from the 80s and early 90s. Unfortunatly, todays movies just seem to be one reboot after another. and one CGI effects laden superhereo film after another.
When Stan and Olly came out this year it was a huge wwelcome relief from the norm of todays films.

Janice I would like to be stuck in the 60s [Big Grin]

The other night I thought I would run an old 16mm print of "White Mane" The film was the winner of the grand prix at Cannes back in 1953. "White Mane" and later in 1956 "The Red Balloon" were both directed by Albert Lamorisse.

Graham,
I think the smaller boy in the last picture is in fact Pascal Lamorisse, who a few years later went on to be the main character in "The Red Balloon", written and directed by his father Albert Lamorisse. White Mane is very good, but I feel Red Balloon is even better still. Thanks for sharing these pics...
