Nice films Tom, only 62mm missing from the "Kelly's Heroes" trailer. I have the same titles you showed all good prints.

Used to deal with Roger too, with his various companies, with you living down there he would have been local to you.

Did you know that his son is kind of still into film via film to dvd? Lost the web address so unable to post it. He does give a little of the history though.

Found it Roger Lilley

Good color on that "Samson" print Laksmi ...

"The Fog" is also a favorite on our house as well. It's old school horror, with a few slight touches of "Close Encounters" (the scene in the super market early on, when things go, let us say "wrong"). John Carpenter and his special effects wizards did an excellent job of managing to give the actual "fog" shots a feeling of evil and almost intelligence, very hard to achieve with "vapors"!

It's fun to compare this film with the remake and see just how messed up remakes can be.

By the way, Derann did a very good 600ft digest of this as well, that flows quite well.

Dave, yep we are still in touch with Phil Lilly,(all be it rarely), as he has transfered a couple of our 8mm home movies to DVD for us.
Those fog effects are pretty good for the time, no CGI crap in this film. Not seen the re-make, i try and avoid re-makes if i can but they can be a laugh, i hope they never do Dark Star, the effects and whole look of the film is what makes it a classic.

Neat Laksmi!

That 30's Batman looks as good as the 60's TV Batman at least.

I wonder if "Greg McClure" (in the credits) was the father of Doug McClure, the great B movie actor?

Lee, it was good to have this tribute to the Collector's Club cartoons.They are rare,mostly original black and white Terrytoons,Van Beurens and Fleiscers from the thirties.The problem with the (rarer) Terrytoons is that some are retitled.I SPY DA FLY is BUGS BEETLE AND HIS ORCHESTRA (1938) and CAT'S CHORUS is (if I am not wrong),the 1951 color IF THE CATS COULD SING.I have about ten,and I have ordered another five or six,which I will get at the BFCC in two weeks.The only one I wouldn't buy is POPEYE MEETS SINBAD,since the complete color two reeler exists. CC had also a number of silent Felixes which they discontinued when they moved to super 8.

I watched the third reel for Star Trek the Trouble with Tribbles. It still has some color left but there is def some red in it.

I tried balancing it with blue cellophane but it was waaaaay too blue. And the picture was fuzzy. Maybe I should just try finding a lighting gel.

Hi Panayotis
Yep I have Popeye meets Sinbad in colour and its excellent viewing but being a CC nut I had to have the little 200ft B&W to complete the list as it were. You know how it goes with collecting you just have to get the whole set.

Enjoy your film screenings folks!

If so, I envy you. That is a wonderful film.

Yes, it is. I just bought it for 500,- NOK (About 80 or 90 dollar I believe)

Very happy with it. Not too bad all through. A few problems at the end of a couple of reels only, but not too bad

Last night after Batman I watched SUPERMAN BILLION DOLLAR LIMITED super 8 color sound 200 reel . I never get sick of these cartoons. The action .the lighting effects, and the action is like a real movie. You really get into them for a little while you get caught up in the story. And there so much detailed its like a work of art. They should make live action movies like these. I wish the movies about superheroes were this good.  -

Laksmi and his "hero" films ... [Big Grin]

I agree, "The Straight Story" is a magnificent film. Richard Farnsworth was nominated for an Academy Award for his acting in that film and I was so longing to see him win (he didn't) ...

but it is such a touching (and by the way ... TRUE) story, you can't but be caught up in the reality of the whole thing. The storytelling is much like that in Tender Mercies, episodic, (another film I highly admire).

The 16mm feature I just watched is my favorite Roger Corman film. "The Raven" from 1963. Starring Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, Hazel Court, Jack Nicholson and Olive Sturgess. The screenplay is by the late, great Richard Matheson.

There are only a few splices. Good color. Filmed in Panavision but not a 'Scope print. It's not really Pan and Scan, either. It's more like Cut and Scan. Instead of panning, the editors cut left to right or right to left back and forth across the 2.35:1 image to fit the 1.33:1 frame. Frequently. It was a bit jarring the first time I ran the film but I've gotten used to it.

I've always liked that film and I felt it was the best pairing of all these horror superstars in one film. I have always relished the idea of of taking the final battle of Sorcerers and cutting it differently, so that it would be extended (it's far too short, I think), taking the original footage minus special effects, and adding modern special effects (lightning and stuff), but making sure it has the same film feel, so that it wouldn't look like it was added.
