Laksmi ...

Sorry I didn't get back on this till now. No, I don't have the STAR TREK digest, but I do have the Marketing films release of the ten minute STAR TREK The Motion Picture Trailer/promo, and it does have spot on color.

What I really love about that trailer is that it has unfinished special effects that weren't used in the actual feature. That's not too surprising, as the film was rushed to the theeaters literally right from the film labs. Robert Wise never got to do test screenings, so it makes sense that the trailer would have neat unfinshed shots, but they did include those neat Klingons at the beginning of the trailer!

Tonight we ran our feature print of Forbidden Planet, a true classic sci-fi movie and ours is in excellent condition with no colour fade and great sound. Mounted on two very full 800 foot spools.
This was an item of luck, when we attended our last Ealing convention,(around 6 years ago i think),we happened to walk past one of the collectors tables and there it sat in a tatty box, the price? £50, we grabbed it thinking we took a chance, got it home, cleaned it up and we were so pleased with it, for once we struck lucky. The only thing i could pick on is the lab marks, (sparkles and dust) at the end of each of the original reel changes, the marks are within the print and not our copy so again, we can certainly live with it as each one only last a few feet, the image quality is pretty much the same as those in Laksmi's excellent review.

Again my favourite films are viewed by the members of this forum.

EARTH VS FLYING SAUCERS 400 foot was one of my early buys. Just thinking about how the buildings were destroyed. Stop Motion, Ray was a genius. To think he did that a frame at a time. Fantastic. Its one of my prized films.

Forbidden Planet yet another fantastic film, jealous feeling now.

I have a couple of the Superman animated films, I won't call them cartoon's because they were works of art. Till the Christopher Reeves films were never beaten.

The other weekend we watched 20.000 Leagues Under The Sea, The Raven, and part of The Fiend Without Face, but on dvd. My son Henry who's almost six really enjoyed 20,000, and was laughing at The Raven, All of course had great actors in them. I do have the first two as 200ft versions, and Fiend from Mountain 4x400ft all were good.

Vincent Price used to be on I think the Monday Move Quiz on BBC1 in the late 70's early 80's. Just checked 1972–1973 boy time flies by.

Thanks to film time freezes.

Laksmi, here are some screenshots from the 3x400 marketing version of Star Trek. I sold this print few years ago, but I found the pics on my hard disc. (sorry, it is offtopic, because I watched it many, many, many nights before and not last night)

Hey David Allen was a great friend of mine and was almost going to do my effects for my movie years ago. My movie Ramayan has been in the works for years. I took so long to raise money I caught up to the CGI age. But I originally wanted Ray or David to do it.

I was fortunate to catch the Imax special effects film that had David Allen's King Kong re-creation on the Empire State. They also re-created the opening to Star Wars. I would love to see that again.

I was in a mood I call "'Scopish", so I watched these:

"Sounds of Arizona"
"London in Cinemascope"
"Take it from the Top"
"Boundin'"
"West Side Story" (musical extracts from...)
"America" (Also from West Side Story)

I've realized lately that "Sounds" is over ten years old now, and I enjoy it even more now than when I got it new from Derann when I first got into Super-8 sound. (An anamorphic lens and a good sound system help, no doubt.)

Next week?

-maybe "Featurish"

Hey Steve,
I have that Sounds of Arizona short myself. Those scope short subjects are a lot of fun. My favorite is Midway Melody.

Hope to see you in Wildwood again this October.

Best Regards.

Good Morning Guy!

I plan to be there! A few weeks ago I went to the Spring edition for the first time and had a great time.

"Sounds" is one of about 50 films I have which all seem to be "my favorite" at the same time. (Don't see how I manage that!)

Great color on that Star Trek: The Motion Picture" 3X400ft digest, I never knew as to whether the digest was letterbox or not, good to see that it is. That was one film where a digest was a very good idea.

I wonder if that was Marketing films last digests they produced?

It feels like it has been a year since i watched any films, or even looked at the forum, sometimes life gets in the way, but I made time to watch a 9.5mm short LE FACTEUR INCANDESCENT (aka NEAR DUBLIN, 1924, 1 x 300ft Film Office) a great Stan Laurel comedy, followed by one of my all time favorite screwballs on 16mm, HIS GIRL FRIDAY (1940, 2 x 1600ft)

A little bit of cheap 16mm features for me ... They cost me about 15 dollar each, so overall happy with that :-)

Final Countdown, opening without scope lens
 -

added the scope lens
 -

Eye of the Needle, red sadly
 -

 -

A Man Called Horse, also red. Added blue filters on the last two pictures
 -

 -

Just love the filters
 -

 -

Enjoyed them, even with the small faults.

Laksmi, that print of the saucers is looking mighty sharp

Hugh,

Didn't marketing films have in the works a 3X400ft of 'Raiders" (like they did with Star Trek), but it was never printed, or there was some problem with Speilberg Okaying the digest, (other than the 400ft).

A very good 400ft digest, by the way!

Great screenshots, one and all

Watched a couple of my new, also cheap, 16mm features. They are a bit red, but I enjoy them with filters on if they get too red

Hennesey, with filter (I think maybe too much filter here)
 -

without filter
 -

 -

Sense of Freedom, no filter
 -

Lucky Luciano
 -

with filter
 -

No filter again
 -

For the price, I think they're okay. Paid about 15-20 dollars
