Laksmi ...

Thank you for sharing your part 2. I have the scope version of that and thankfully, a rather rare non faded copy at that (every copy I have seen auctioned in the last few yars has been faded to varying degrees. I kind of wonder exactly what kind of stock it is. It does say eastman, but not a bit O fade!)

I watched Paradise Hawaiian Style. One of 3 Elvis films done in Hawaii. Nice print that I just got from Steve Osborne of The Reel Image. I love buying from him.

Saw Star Wars and Empire again, as well as Goofy's Glider (200' Color Silent) ... Both Star Wars movies 400' Color Sound

1.3 lens used

1.1 lens used

To me, 1.3 is sharper (I did get a cheap 1.1, so it might be defective) ... Can't focus it any better than this

Tonight was my second annual USC work Xmas screening party, with some friends from work coming over to watch a holiday movie. I think this is going to be the final film on the GS-1200 for awhile as there was a couple of nasty crackles in the speaker, so the amp is going in the external outs as well...Gotta spend some money on a new amp. I used the f1.0 lens and watched what was probably one of the best quality feature's NILES ever released IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946, 8 x 400ft Super 8)

I watched a few super 8 trailers (including "Stargate" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail") followed by quite a nice 16mm print of Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin in "All of Me".

Just got my digest of "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" today and screened it immediately. Have to admit I'm a little disappointed. That's what I get for bidding on ebay before asking any questions. But this title is so important to me it was impossible to 'not' throw the money at it.

The digest edit itself is very good with some really great action scenes and a handful of character moments that reminded me why I unconditionally love this film.

The print itself was pretty good with nice color and sharpness, but there were scratches throughout. And there's a nasty green vertical line down almost the entire 2nd half. Sound was a little garbled as well.

Something I thought was impressive is that the previous owner reproduced an exact replica of the original box.

All these defects went unmentioned in the listing. And it was absolutely my fault for not paying closer attention. In a way, I'm somewhat happy to have it. But I'll sell it the first chance I get, after securing a better print that is. [Wink]

I'll post pix next chance I get.

Happy Holidays!

Hey Dave I watch my super 8 color 400 digest version of Raiders Of The Lost Ark after I read your post and here are some screen shots. To bad about your films condition. My print is clean and no scratches, no lines,beautiful color and contrast. Sorry if it seems like I'm rubbing it in. I guess that is the chance you take on eBay. People don't tell you the details in the condition because they want to sell it. And you were the one who paid over $100 for it? Wow your in my prayers.  -

Yeah yeah, rub it in Laksmi [Wink]

Your print looks awesome! Thanks for sharing. How long have you had yours?

Oh, and btw...that wasn't me who paid $100. That was another listing that I lost out on. But I would've paid that amount. Sure! These reels are not easy to find whatsoever.

And please direct your prayers to me acquiring a full length print of Raiders in the near future!!! [Cool]

Hi Dave I have had my RAIDERS about 10 years. I had another one before this one that I sold . I had it for 20 years it was a nice color print as well no marks looked clean. Most of my Marketing films are like that, War of the Worlds, Ten Commandments,Samson and Delilah, and Star Trek the Motion Picture So tonight I watched another of my Marketing digest BARBARELLA with sexy Jane Fonda on super 8 nice color and nice everything else [Big Grin]  -

It is indeed, Lee! The production has a warm and slightly whimsical feel about it too, assisted by a great performance from Denholm Elliot.

Wow Lars nice screen shoots I love Jerry Lewis in this movie. Great! These shots don't look dark to me? Did you get this movie in Sweden? Is this a 400 or 600 X reel feature set ?

Well theese are the good pictures. I took 125 pictures totally during the film, of these only 18 were acceptable, all others was either to dark, out of focus or had motion blurriness.

The film was supplied on 5x400, and for a running time of 98 minutes that makes them rather full.

I actually got it just about a month ago from Paul Foster. The only downside is that some previous owner unfortunately must have had a really scratchy projector, you can see the scratches on some of the pictures above. But this is the way well used re-run movies used to look back when i grew up so it feels right somehow.

To explain: I have all of Sergio Leones westerns on DVD with perfect picture, and it's great. BUT, when I saw theese films at the cinema in the seventies, it was on old well projected copies with loads of lines and splices, so somehow that is how these films should be seen in my mind. Compare to what Quentin did with that movie, whose name I can't remember, that was made to look like a worn out drive-in print, and you get the idea.
