And not to be forgotten…
Good old 9.5mm Optical sound ‘Something in the City’ Richard Hearne stars in this really fun film which is extremely rare on 9-5 sound due to a very small number of prints being made late in the day. I forgot to take a photo off screen as I was enjoying the film so much!

Quite frankly, I think that the prints that you used for your comparison (thanX 4 the screenshots!), are not all that faded to begin with.

The only time that those Cyan filters really work well is if you have a very reddish print and then they can restore a little color, but those Cyan filters that you used seem a little too oppressive. A good cyan filter for this purpose ...

1. Shouldn't "over blue" everything
2. Shouldn't darken the image that much.

That's why I wrote that on the top ... If you see the A Man Called Horse a little earlier, I think the filters do a good job. I did remove the filters after just a short time on those last ones there. :-)

Some more viewings today

One of those eclectic combinations that happen so frequently with 8mm:

Scope trailer for Super 8 (2011)....

 -

 -

....followed by the 400' Ken Films digest of the 1971 feature Evel Knievel.....

 -

 -

 -

...and finished up with the Ken Films Korean monster 200 footer
Yongary, Monster from the Deep (1967).

I think there's room for just one more film.....

Yep!

Sometimes I'll think about what I want to watch later and if it's a show for company I might even write it down...

-other times it's as if I'm looking inside the refrigerator seeing what looks appetizing!

Nice to see your screenshots Doug!

Those little 200ft monster flicks can be hard to find with decent color!

Your lucking out on some pretty good prints there VIdar!

Neat blending of old school sci-fi and new school (X-files) in your most recent screenshots Laksmi!

Vidar Your "Steve Allen Show with Elvis" was more than likely a Kinescope.

Love "Where Eagles Dare" the super 8 version was well edited considering the plot was complicated to say the least. Lucky to have this film in 16mm complete, but not in scope. This is one film I can keep watching again and again.

Laksmi Nice to see "Earth Vs Flying Saucers"

Last night we watched "It Came From Beneath The Sea" on dvd, I have the Columbia 400ft, but we didn't want to set up for any films. It was the first time my daughter who's almost ten had seen this film. When the octopus makes its first appearance her words were "Awesome" not bad for a 1955 film.

For some reason every copy of "The Magic Sword" I have seen is looking reddish. Must have been the masters used. Even one I watched on internet was the same.

Was "The Chairman" the original title? One version I have on Betamax is called "The Most Dangerous Man In The World"

I love the smell of film in the morning.

Thanks on the comments Osi and Vidar your like going crazy on your prints you may want to open a rental store. I guess I am a little more selective when it comes to titles. Your getting like my man Dino Everette this site was made just for you Wow. Any way I saw a film last night that has the famous strong man. SAMSON AND DELILAH 3 X 400 Marketing Films sound color epic. I love these strong guy epics I love that Steve Reeves was offered this part by DeMille. Reeves is also loved by Osi. And he knows want I mean.  -

Vidar what is really awesome is FORBIDDEN PLANET and it is not coming from Derann full feature. It was from RED FOX . PLANET is the Mother of all space movies like if not for this film there would be no Star Wars or Star Trek. Right Oemer? This why I collect super 8mm.  -  -  -

Doug

I just happened to run some 35mm film today, which included the same Scope trl for "Super8" but on 35mm. Your Scope trl looks really good [Cool] and its nice for once to see some "new stuff" of that quality available on Super8 film.

Vidar

Just a quick comment on your 3/400ft "Where Eagles Dare" one of the best edited digests thats for sure, and your colour reminded me of my print I once had which seemed to reach a point of light fade... then just stop, it looks good for years yet [Smile]

David ...

I'm betting the problem on "Magic Sword" is simply down to that terrible Eastman quic fade film stock, which Red Fox (and probably the other super 8 companies) didn't know would fade quickly. I'm sure it had gorgeous colors to begin with, but I really don't think it made it onto low fade stock. I would be curious to hear of one that did.

So, the only chance of finding decent color on that title would be to find someone who has kept the feature in a cool dry place in they're basement for the last 35 years or so, but if you find one in that condition, place it in cold storage right away to maintain that color!

Boy, a lot of action recently in this topic! Great screesnhots one and all!

Laksmi, is that a full feature or a digest? It do look nice too, but quality on the Star Trek almost blew my mind ... I do want to get some of the old sci-fi's, but not at prices I could get a Star Wars for :-)
