Predator. One of the best Super 8 prints of all time sync' pulsed to the 2003 uncut DVD (first DVD version was edited) with the THX up as loud as could be endured. Super 8 heaven... I'd forgotten how good this particular show could be.

Last night we watched some recent ebay acquisitions. We started with "The Creature with the Atom Brain", an excellent 400ft digest from Columbia. Then we followed that with "Circus of Fear". This was a 3X400ft digest of "Caged Fury" from Fletcher Films. I had always wanted to get this film after reading Lee Mannering's excellent review of it on this forum. It's a great film with Larry "Buster" Crabbe as a villain for a change and we loved every minute of it. I am always surprised at how good the prints of these Fletcher Films can be. It's just a pity that they normally changed the titles of their releases for some reason best known to themselves. Finally we finished off the evening with Roy Rodgers and Trigger in "The Yellow Rose of Texas". This film is mounted on 2X600ft reels but I will put it back on 400ft reels as it was originally released. Set on a riverboat Roy plays an agent who exposes the real perpertrator of a crime for which an innocent man had been accused. It was a bit of a whodunnit really. Great vintage entertainment.

Paul.

We watched a 16mm episode of The Muppet Show with guest star Marty Feldman,In typical Muppet style every puppet had a set of Marty's eyes at the end which was quite amusing,followed by a super 8 feature of An American in Paris...Mark.

Just finished my last show ,comprised of : FELIX PINCHES THE POLE (silent),THE GREAT WHO-DOOD-IT (Woody the Magician),THE TREASURES OF TUTANCHAMON, NATURE'S STRANGEST CREATURES (Disney),DONALD'S GOLDMINE and the feature PORT OF NEW YORK with Richard Rober,Scott Brady and first appearances by Yul Brunner and Neville Brand. All in std 8.

Paul
I agree with you, CAGED FURY is an exellent little B.Unfortunately Fletcher ,many times was very stingy with footage. This 3x 400 version (CIRCUS OF FEAR), is actually only 39 minutes long so it can fit 2x400 easily. Thunderbird did issue the complete feature which ,anyway,is only 60 minutes long,(i.e. 3x400). I wish I could find their version.

Last night was a western Universal short on 9.5 called Jim Hood's Ghost. It was one of the few Pathescope releases that i have that look like it retained the real film title and the real intertitles.

I also just got in some new super 8 films from Steve at Reel Image that I hope to watch this weekend.

Having been working away for a week, the previous Wednesday I ran my Standard 8 1922 silent version of Dr Mabuse. Absolutely superb. Lang at one of his best. This was the 'so called' Part 1 of the series, where Mabuse takes a potion to enable him to easily hypnotise his opponents at cards, thereby taking the winnings and carrying out all sorts of other sinister undertakings.

Shown on my modified Elmo E-80 using 800ft reels.

This coming weekend, it will be METROPOLIS. My recently acquired 16mm print from a friend of Steven Sigel, which purports to be virtually as the original. [Roll Eyes]
I shall monitor the running time most carefully and then refer back to imDb to check exactly which version it is. [Eek!]

It was "Camp night" so we watched "Hawk the Slayer"

oooh, tasty camp! Just love that scene with the mace hanging over the guys head, being held in place by the rope in the victims teeth.

"Now, if you can just keep your mouth shut, you'll be fine!"

Nope! Man fusses, mace comes down and goes splat!

"Some folks just can't keep their mouths shut."

(hee hee)

and then ...

The Fog (scope)

Not so tasty "camp" but tasty horror!

Good choice, Osi... [Wink]

Tonight screening dvd: William Friendkin's The Hunted.

Quite enjoyable. To say that Benicio del Toro is overacting in some scenes is an understatement.

I showed my pin sharp print of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (16mm). I purchased this a couple months ago off eBay and it was the first chance I had to screen the film. For the price I paid, I expected a dupe, but this was a razor sharp original in fine shape, for sure. It sparkled on the big screen.

Ah I finally got myself a copy of Star Crash on Super 8 - I couldn't wait and watched it immediately, even with the german soundtrack. It was a little more used then it was advertised by the seller on ebay but beggers can't be choosers. Now I have to break out the gear to re-record the sound off the dvd...

I also watched the silent short The Little Country Mouse (1914) starring Blanche Sweet on reg 8. Does anyone know who put this out? the stock was dated 1960 and it had a replaced main title but original intertitles.

Last night it was more recent ebay purchases. We started the show with "Swashbuckler". This is a Universal 8 digest on 1X400ft reel. It was an excellent print with a great cast. This was followed by "Prophecy", an excellent monster movie with an ecological them. This was a letterboxed print on 3X400ft reels from Marketing Films. Lastly we watched "Bullet for a Dead Man". This is an early Derann film on 4X400ft reels. I enjoyed this euro western with an unknown cast (to me). The only thing I didn't like was the awful organ music soundtrack. It needed a bit of Ennio Morricone. The colour and sound on all of these was very good, even the the early Derann feature (good old Buck Labs), so it was a very enjoyable evening. More titles have recently arrived so we're looking forward to the next show.

Paul.
