Laksmi, is that a trailer or a digest of an episode? If digest of an episode, which episode?

Great series, up to a point. Was getting a bit out of hand at the end

I watched a Film Classics print of Laurel and Hardy in "Their First Mistake" on 16mm and some Walton Pink Panther cartoons on super 8.

Ha ha! Jonathan, the screenshot you took looks like the first time where the first thing to fade on a super 8 film print, is the PINK!

Hi Osi.The colour balance on my camera phone was a bit out!Rest assured, the panther was as pink as ever. I don't know if this "Pink Valiant" story was made before The Pink Panther Strikes Again. The Pink Panther trying to get into the castle was very similar to one of my favourite Peter Sellers moments.

Viewed the Marketing feature of Grease today ... I do believe it's the whole film, though it's only on two 800'. It seems to be polyester, as it's appearing thinner

The color looks great Vidar; that must be low fade.

Vidar Your correct I think all the Marketing Films I have are printed on polyester stock. Your "Grease" looks great, not watched my copy for ages though. It just fits on one spool with my set-up.

Thank you, it is looking quite decent. I am not sure all my Marketing films are polyester ... How many feet would Godfather be for example? Mine is on 3x1200' (of course it's a longer film than Grease [Smile] )

Since the evening was so young, I watched a 16mm feature. The Condemned of Altona

Vidar,

You have a great copy of GREASE. I got one from eBay a few years ago. It had good color but the sound was bad on reel 4 so I returned it.

I got another one last year. I watched it a month ago. It's pretty faded.

 -

You can't tell how red it is because there's a blue filter over the lens.

My 400' digest still has good color. I think I'll watch that tonight.

There's a great big beautiful tomorrow just a dream away.

WOW! Jonathan, beautiful color.

I was very glad that Red Fox actually made it into the low fade age as his prints in the low fade age really are outstanding. His print of "Robin Hood" is dazzling!

Thanks Osi. It is a 1983 print with LPP colour. Afterwards, I was comparing it to the blu ray. The colour is very accurate. I was expecting it to be a Derann print until I noticed the label was cut out from a Red Fox box.

Friday night 16mm films were MGM News of the Day 1 Reel from June 1967 featuring the crises in Israel and the Middle East, a world expo in Montreal, our Queen and a couple of other items. Interesting little film. Sadly little changes in the world.

This was followed by an episode from the TV series Heart Of The City aka Big Town. Shot in film-noir style, the series focused on the exploits of Steve Wilson and the staff of 'The Illustrated Press' newspaper. Quite enjoyable well acted and a little different.

Both were black & white and very good prints with just the odd lines.

For the main features we moved to dvd. First was Gold Diggers of 1933 wow is this one sexy film. Good fun to take your mind off today's problems, which its aim was in 1933 and it still works today. Great music and dancing

This film is also a classic example of the PRE-CODE stuff that was slipping by the naked girls in silhouette changing into their "armour," the non-stop flashing of underwear or lack of underwear, Ginger Rogers having her large coin torn off by the sheriff's office mug so she's essentially standing there in panties.

 -

 -

These are just a couple from my images library.

When you look back and this film you realise how good looking actresses and the actors were. And Busby Berkeley dance routines to boot.

Then San Demetrio London an Ealing Film from 1943. Based on a true incident from WW2 another good film with lots of familiar faces from the cast, typical stiff upper lip of the era. At one point when in the lifeboat the sea looks like a negative image.

I watched all these with my son who is 7 next week and he does enjoy them.

I'm serious!

So tonight we'll watch all family movies starting from one I made in my teens.

No sound, no celebrities, no multi-million dollar blockbusters.

I saw my third MacLean adaption on 16MM, The Secret Ways.
The copy was probably printed in the year of the films release, 1961. The markings also could stand for 1981 but I don't think they printed any copies of this title then. For a print that old it's in a remarkable good condition.

Our first Super 8 show in a long time. We had the Charley Chase Columbia short Calling All Doctors followed by the Derann feature release Carry On Screaming:. Nice print with excellent colour. I wonder if anyone else has some lines and the edge of a sprocket showing on the left extreme edge of their print of this one?
