At probably the same time as Oliver was enjoying The War of The Worlds, I was enjoying the delights of Elvis Presley.

My Saturday night film show was Paradise Hawaiian Style 5x 400'

Strange to watch a film that is not red, but has virtually no colour left but is not actually black and white. Pity, as there were very few marks on the film. The good thing was, after checking on Wiki, it appears to be the full length feature.

No film show in the Man Cave next weekend. Just like many of you.... I am going to the SEASIDE !!!

Ran all the camera originals for Cinema in Miniature II.
Everything seems to be OK and colourful with a rock steady frame line from my Leicina camera. Its been a big project filming up and down the country but we did it.

I must have been in the mood last night, because I watched a bunch of short films. I set up one S8 machine for 'scope, I left one as is and I had my Kodak Pageant for 16mm.

Pathe Newsreel(1920)
She Flies ('scope)
The Birch Canoe Builder (16mm)
America (West Side Story) ('scope)
Voyage around Newfoundland (16mm)
Sorcerer's Apprentice (Fantasia)
Pacific 231 (16mm)

What made it even more interesting is as my family heard soundtracks they were (or weren't) interested in, my audience grew and shrunk!

(I guess I really should put these away today!)

I watched the Blackhawk 4x400 version of Mystery of the Mary Celeste (1935) with Bela Lugosi. I've watched this film several times over the past few years and assumed they all died (spoiler alert [Eek!] !) killed by Lugosi's character. However, the final very quick scene now leaves me confused. Did Lugosi kill the crew, the captain and his wife or was it the hand sent over by the jilted other captain? Anybody want to help me out here [Confused]

In real life Mary Celeste was found mid-ocean with a couple of feet of water in the hold, the launch missing and not a soul aboard.

-for some reason the entire crew decided to abandon a perfectly good ship and get in a small boat out in the middle of nowhere and to this day nobody knows why.

Maybe the point of the movie wasn't really to solve the mystery!

This evening, Saturday 23rd, was my first serious film night since last week's wonderful Blackpool convention.

Those who attended the Saturday dinner will appreciate the fact that the first film I screened this evening was the 5x 600' Sylvester Stallone classic "Rocky."

That was followed by a viewing of another film from Blackpool, the 7x 400' Easter Parade.

As you can see, quite a session!

Tonight's viewing of Rocky clearly demonstrated to me why I am into this hobby so much. I had only seen this film once before, on dvd on a moderately sized TV screen. My opinion was that it was just an "okay" film. After watching it tonight on a 5 1/2 foot wide screen and being able to study the character build up a little better, together with being immersed in the action a lot more, it had a far bigger impact and I can now understand how it got its Oscar.

It is a very uplifting feeling when, after a morning of doing chores together, getting the shopping in etc. I settle down at lunch time with my wife for a snack, and she suddenly blurts out "Do you fancy a film show this afternoon?" (Do I want a film show? A question in this household where the word "no" is not an option)

So, this afternoon, totally unexpected, totally unplanned, we sat back to watch a super 8 feast which consisted of the following...

6x 400' The Lady With The Lamp - Anna Neagle as Florence Nightingale. Nice sharp print and good sound.

1x 400' Divot Diggers starring The Little Rascals. This was the copy shown at Blackpool on the Saturday that was subsequently picked up by me on the Bring and Buy... and had only a few days before been brought from the States by a certain American gentleman! Nice Blackhawk print.

Melvin,I must admit 'Divot Diggers' is the first Little Rascals film I've ever seen.Not expecting too much I surprised myself by laughing at some of the antics they got up to. It was a good looking print too.

These last days (but I was too lazy to write before) : Cecil Theatre (quoted from the box : "A newsreel type short showing the cinema goer around the inside of this new cinema, its projection box and in general, how a cinema works"), black and white, looks like from the '60s. Buddy's Theater, a (Warner Bross) 1935 cartoon, the theater is in this case a cinema. Cine Ads 11, a Derann release shown at Blackpool, needles to say good print. Americas Natures Playgroung (quoted, again, from the box : "Niagara Falls, one of the seven wonders of the world opens this terrific travelogue including the Rocky Mountains, Yellowstone Park, Grand Canyon and much more"). An American In Paris trailer. Calypso Cruise, a scope documentary released by Derann, not bad but the original negative was far to be perfect. Two (MGM) scope cartoons : One Droopy Night and Southbound Duckling (Tom and Jerry), both still have good colours, which was not obvious when I Filmguarded them so it was a good surprise. Battlestar Gallactica, an uncomplete (the end is missing and I don't remember where I got it) digest, colours are fading.

Two nights ago : two scope films. Tears Of The Moon, a documentary about pearls and a cartoon : Millionaire Droopy. My two Droopy scope cartoons have both the same unusual particularity to have the picture not covering all the scope space. Tonight : Days Of Thrills And Laughter (recently acquired at Blackpool and respooled on a large spool). It consists of extracts of silent films with music and comments. Since I love silent films, I spent a good moment. I spliced together the 5 120 mt/400 ft and I notices that, in addition to the classical variations in term of brightness and sharpness, the size of the picture also varies from one reel to the other.

Remember Tears of the Moon at a Derann open day from such a long time ago and Derek projecting it, in fact I videoed him at the back stood next to the projector at the time. Ah fond memories of 'the olden days'

We've been watching quite a few scope 8mm films mostly the 20th Century Fox 200ft reelers which really quite unique on 8mm and a nice thing to have.

I went to see The Miracle of Stereophonic Sound at Bradford some time ago which was a great short. The Orient Express to Hong Kong is another good one.
