With yet another version of Stephen King's "Carrie" comming out in October, I decided to revist the film from 1976. I watched both Derann 400's.

This is the first and the best.

It's a great story but after the stage musical, the awful "The Rage: Carrie 2" and the TV movie from 2002 do they really need to make it again? I like Julianne Moore (see "Short Cuts" and "The Hours") but from what I've seen in the trailers, she's no Piper Laurie. Also, Julianne Moore should avoid acting in pointless remakes. See Gus Van Sant's 1998 "Psycho". Better yet, don't.

Friday night we watched a 'Pink Panther' "Genie with the Light Pink Fur" Sadly if you'll excuse the pun a little pink, but not too bad. Complete with Saint Louis County Library title.

Not bad animation simplistic, but seems to fit well. Plus that GREAT theme music.

Followed by "YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK" Hard to tell, but I think a little fade, but still plenty of colour. Even more enjoyable due to visiting twice. Brought back a few memories. Plus seeing the places we hadn't time to go to. A really beautiful place. A very informative little film.

Finished with a quick preview of "Joe Kidd" in scope. Colour looks very good a few lines, but missing opening credits. I'll need to give this a clean before we watch it all.

I must admit I do like most of Clint Eastwood's films he has made over the years.

Now the dark nights are here I must watch my 16mm "Where Eagles Dare" sadly not scope. Not seen my 16mm for a while now, I hope its not fading. I have to go to my mum's as the living room is great for film shows.

Getting too old now I can tell what each actor is going to say before they say it. BUT I love this film, its what collecting is all about. "Broadsword Calling Danny Boy" I only watch this film 10 times a year though.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

Vidar,

That print of High Noon is impressive. I wish I had one as yours.
I bet that your film was printed the same year it was made in 1952.

Why don't you check along the sprockets with a lens or magnifying glass
and if it reads KODAK and then followed by a Square and Cross symbols
then it verifies a 1952 printing.

The fine grains appearance shows each strand of hair on the actors head
and the fabric on Grace Kelly's dress is well defined.

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

It was a borrowed one, was very sharp and fine. A few splices and needs a little cleaning, but it was an enjoyable film. I wish it was mine too :-)

My eyesight isn't good enough to see small writings like that, sadly

Last night I watched the only full-length feature I have on super 8.

GREASE

The print is faded but there are no scratches and the sound is very good.

Jonathan. What do you think of the "Capricorn One" Walton film? I have this and the other that Walton did "The Sea Wolves" both were released about the same time.

I don't think they were 'digests' as such, more promotional films to sell the films to cinemas.

I do like them both though, very enjoyable and all action.

Hi David. It certainly looks like a promo that Lew Grade would have put out at the time, to help market it. I thought it gave a fairly good flavour of the story. Mine is a nice Fuji print.

@Laksmi [Smile]

Did you watched War of the Worlds in 1953 ? (how old are you??).
I watched it exact 1978 on TV.
Here is a very good article about widescreen by Bob Furmanek.
He wrote War of the Worlds was released in 1953 with Stereo sound. widescreen-documentation

Memories of Me 1988 and popular here.
 -
I'm guestimating these early 90's prints of MOM were the most produced in optical sound. Anyone else remember when they had them all piled high at Blackpool I wonder. I'm getting some good optical sound from the GS1200 and this print is a corker.

I found my Memories of Me to be one of my best in quality. Also love the film, Billy Crystal and Alan King is great together and there's something about JoBeth Williams :-)

I think why I like it so much is all the performances are honest perhaps with quite a bit of improvisation which makes for an entertaining movie. Nice film and a credit to them all including Henry Winkler. Wasn’t Sean Connery filming The Presidio at the time he had his walk on in this? Alan King also shines doesn’t he in this, stealing the show somewhat and I was amazed to read the amount of charity work he had undertaken in his life. Really nice collectable film with meaning.

It may have been sold by Derann in the early 90's, but that super 8 optical was released in the year of theatrical distribution, in the mid to late 80's.

I just got a Derann print of the Time Machine and the trailer to SW Attack of the Clones.

I haven't watched the Time Machine print yet but the clones trailer looks nice!

Laksmi,

I'm a huge fan of The Time Machine. Whenever its playing at a revival house or part of a film series I always go because it looks spectacular on a big screen.
