Laksmi, you are right. Forbidden Planet ist one of the most important early Science Fiction movies. Together with This Island Earth they show us first time the travel to other planets with great special effects.

Thanks to you all for the screenshots, which makes this topic to my favorite one.

I got a print of Bert Gordons "Magic Sword" many years ago,and
the print was dire,but then so was the acting! I think a lot of
these features were from an American source,"Day of the Triffids"
6x400,"Horror Express" 5x400,"The Crimson Cult"2x400 etc, all over
20 years old, and as red as hell when purchased.My view is they
were put out this way because they could get away with it.

Hugh American source,"Day of the Triffids" 6x400, "Horror Express" both these were listed in the Thunderbird catalogue. The Mountain scope version of "Triffids" was not too good either. Think your correct Hugh. They were put out this way because they could get away with it.

Some lucky collectors on here with great entertainment on FILM. Even the screen shots look great. I'll have a try soon see what I can do.

My collection is more older titles, for some reason not too keen on the more modern films. Although there is one or two I might buy if they were available.

I'd love to find the 4X400ft "Day of the Triffids" (or was it a 5X400ft placed on 4X400ft), the scope color version.

I hear that the color has held up reasonably well.

This was a "B" movie that I was reasonably impressed with, special effects and all, (especially the first part as the "Triffids" land on earth), and the premise was quite good, kind of a "take" on ther whole Body Snatcher thing.

The 4x400 was a Mountain/Portland release Osi, available in B/W,
Col. or 'Scope/col. I sold one on here before Christmas. There is
also the 6x400,which David tells me was a T'Bird release,but the
colour is desaturated although full length.

The best colour I have ever seen was sold on ebay a couple of months ago. It was only the trailer in 35mm. I think it was sold at over £200. It did say IBTech which I suppose is possible.

I must admit I like to watch this film. Lucky to buy the 4x400ft from Portland Films on Shaftesbury Avenue when they had a shop. Only £20 too. The colour on my copy is not too good though, it was like that from new. Hugh's long word "desaturated" is a good description, also it has a colour biases.

A little joke. Where I live they are building some new offices/shops. For safety there's a sign that reads "Heavy Plant Crossing" I always lookout for the 'Triffid' crossing. Always have a chuckle to myself.

Tonight we put our copy of the Lion King through, this has got to be one of the finest Disney features to ever appear on Super 8mm, perfect colour,print and sound throughout, i didnt take any screenshots because i was too busy enjoying the film. Im my humble opinion if you only ever bought one Disny feature i think it would have to be this one, it has everything, great comedy moments, a very sad (bambi style) moment, superb music, & so many great voices by some of the best actors and comedians.
Our print is still on its original 600 foots spools, it almost seems a shame to chop it up but two 1200s would be great. I'll get around to it one day! [Wink]

I don't have a lot of features so I'm planning on doing a monthly "Evening of Entertainment" thing that features an array of films. A few trailers, a short film, then two good digests or a feature film.

Anybody have any suggestions on how I should structure it?

Here's an example one:

Reel #1 (400'):
Jaws Trailer
Casino Royale Trailer
Ben-Hur Trailer
3 Stooges 200' reel

Reel #2 (400'):
Batman & Robin Movie Serial

Reel #3 (400'):
Star Wars Digest

Something like that. Maybe 90 minutes of watching. I might consider making in closer to two hours. Any suggestions on how I should structure it?

If I remember correctly, the old structure would be something like:

news reel, Preview, preview, preview, cartoon, short film, movie serial, feature presentation.

Maybe stick with a theme or mix it up?

Check out the trailer for my feature length Spaghetti-style Western:

Whatever is enjoyable to you.

It does not need a set plan.

If you want theme, actors, trailers and then short films and
not to worry about features.

I've run a hodgepodge of titles.
I usually put all of the trailers together and then the longer shorts come afterwards.

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great
hobby that we love!

Aloha Laksmi, I think I recognize that man with a cape.

I haven't posted on here for a while so, here's one from my latest screenings, which are mostly Soundies and short musical films. This is an RCM Soundie, That's the Hawaiian in Me (1943) with reverse titles. The music and art direction on these films were over the top. These were the very first music "videos", mostly a curiosity, that were played in jukebox called a Panoram which had eight 3 min. Soundies on a loop that projected the image onto a glass screen. There's even a documentary about the machine called Soundies: A Musical History, it's worth checking out for rare musical highlights...

Instead of a movie film tonight i thought id put my Elvis 68 comeback concert on, no plots here just some great memories from a now classic comeback concert from the King.
This is one of those items that im not sure was an official release so when i enquired about it on one of Deranns list i asked Ged what the quality was like, the answer was "nothing spectacular but this one", he said, "was one of the very best prints of this title i've seen on super 8", i took my chance, paid my £35 and i was very pleased. Even more so tonight as this is the first time i've viewed it in a number of years and am please to say there is absolutly no fade at all, these images dont do it justice as the print is pretty good considering how it got onto 8mm, the sound is also very good & this one is mounted onto 1 x 1200ft so no interuptions and its a great mix of music and show style. What a great Shame that Elvis died so young.
We also have the 2 x 400 B/W Elvis on the Ed Sullivan shows with some classic numbers from a very young Elvis.
I do now regret selling the 400ft Elvis Blooper reel but that title was a bit of a con as over 50% of was just concert footage rather than actual bloopers and the quality of that reel wasnt up to anywhere near the film we watched tonight. [Wink]

After spending some weeks in the mountains on holiday, I had a day home before back to work on Monday so I took advantage of the time to watch some 16mm films. First a fun little educational called Learning with Film & Video (1985, 600ft LPP COL) about the educational benefits of using film in the classroom. This was followed by The Quiet Gun (1957 2 x 1600ft B/W) starring one of my boyhood crushes Mara Corday. My print is flat but if anyone has a regalscope print of this they want to get rid of please contact me. Finally I finished it off with a low budget Columbia film entitled Behind Prison Gates (1939, 2 x 1200ft, B/W) starring Brian Donlevy, but also featuring small cameos by Shemp Howard and 9.5 western hero Edmund Cobb. A low budget fun day of celluloid before I go back to work....The pics are a little on the light side because I watched them during the afternoon and there was a good deal of sunshine spilling into the room.

Tonight i put on my 1200ft version of Whitchfinder General.
This is a frustrating film for me as we started many years ago with the two 200 ft extract which we had for several years. Never being able to catch the 4x400ft feature on the lists, (those Monday mornings when by the time you got through to the dealer it had gone), we recieved a phone call from Roger Lily of our own local dealer the Looney movie co. He offered us this incomplete feature consisting of reels 1,3 & 4 for the scilly price of just £25, its not a perfect print as it has some light scratching with the occasionl glimps of green to the right but mostly for reel one only, we couldnt say no to this and with a little splicing of the 200ft extract "The evil one" it actually flows very well and makes a very good 1 hour film.
Now heres the thing, the colour is absolutly fine with no fade on reels 1 3 and 4 but unfortunatly our old 200footer has faded [Mad] & ruins an otherwise very good film, fortuntly this footage is only around 100 ft so isnt too bad so now all we need is another extract with good colour and we are sorted.

This is a classic English horror from 1968 whose very young director died of Drugs overdose aged 25, im sure he would have been one of the best horror film makers of his era. I am sure that most people in our hobby know of this item so i wont bore you with story line just to say it still remains an excellent late 60s horror film which did cause a lot of controversy on its release, indeed the DVD has some footage put back in but the quality of the said footage is not too good. Maybe at some point a company will restore it to its full gory [Big Grin]
Why the US renamed it the Conqueror Worm is beyond me, as i understand it, it was an attempt to link it to Roger Cormans earlier series of Edgar Allen Poe's related films with Vincent Price even though this film has nothing what so ever to do with those movies, Oh well!

I showed the Marketing Film digest of Raiders. I just just got it! Thanks Scott!

I was amazed by the color. This is my first Marketing Film print. Are they low fade or is this one just wel preserved? I admittedly know nothing of them besides that it's a German company.

Tom, what an impressive looking print!

Another diverse triple bill:

Ken Films 400' The Incredible Melting Man, a recent purchase from Barry Atwood to replace a faded copy.

 -

 -

 -

MGM's Ivanhoe 200 footer, also from Barry.

 -

 -

Warner's 400' Blazing Saddles, from Paul Foster.

Horror, adventure and comedy all in under 45 minutes!

This evening i put on some old short titles for a change, now these are some of my oldest prints & yet all are in great condition, the only problem? that annoying columbia narration, some of it certainly isnt nesseccary but on these two 400ft titles i guess ive lived with it up to now, [Big Grin]

First off was the 200ft Twins of Evil, a great starter and one of Waltons best 200 footers, those twins!!! Cant blame the count for wanting to nibble at those necks [Wink]

 -

next up is the 400footer of Getting Straight, an unusual item on 8mm but a reasonable cut down and with a very young Harrison Ford in his pre Star Wars days, although the image appears to have fade the print doesnt, its just a poor picture taken with a diddy camera.

 -

And last was the excellent 400 foot version of Taxi Driver,
This is an excellent Martin scorsese film, there are so few of his films on 8, and this is one where the narration could, (in my view), have been left out all together, nevertheless, this is an excellent reel and no fade on this print.

Tom- Great pix!

Who released "Getting Straight" on super 8? Thats a great screen shot of Mr. Ford, and he even looks like "Han Solo" in that picture.

And yes, Taxi Driver is another example of fine editing, even maintaining the atmosphere of a very dark film in nature.

James.
