Hmmmm! Interesting. I showed this on a ST-1200. However, no other print has these lines on that projector.

Most films is fine on mine too, but a few is showing this line, but the line isn't visible on the other Elmos. Maybe the gate isn't in correct position? Is there any adjustment to be done to the gate?

We watched "The Beatles at Shea Stadium" a show just a little under an hour. Quite fascinating. Not only does i9t have they're concert, but it also has interviews and the opening acts on this reel. I don't know if that was part of the original release on super 8, but this was one of Fred K's prints and he does tend to surprise.

The nice thing about the print is that the color is still so good, I'd say between 7 out of 10 on one of the reels, to 8 out of 10 on the other reels and some parts that don't look faded at all. Most prints of this have been pretty darned faded.

I'd love to keep this, but I'm selling it for Fred, so it has to go, but a fun view, just the same.

Sorry, I wish I could put up some screenshots.

I've got that original "Yellow" trailer as well Laksmi, and the neat thing is that it is different than the recent Yellow Sub" trailer that was released by CHC! Great color on that Peter pan trailer!

Right now I'm watching Derann's old 8mm color/sound rental feature print of Hammer's The Evil of Frankenstein. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It's capturing everything I love about this film format - gorgeous rich color/contrast... booming sound and super sharp image. I never knew regular 8 could look this amazing. If you ever get the chance to pick one of these prints up (the color ones are quite rare) grab it. I just had to share how happy I am to have this in my collection.

Last night I watched THIS ISLAND EARTH super 8 400 reel color sound . It is a great SCIFI classic with some great effects far ahead of its time.  -

Laksmi. You've got some great digests. "This Island Earth" is a good film. Would have made a good 2 or 3 400ft version too, but the one you have was if I remember well done. I only hired this one a long time ago in a film library not too far away.

Its sometimes great just to watch a few cut-downs to have a great evening.

I set up the RCA 416 to watch the 4 min. film I got today. Four short scenes from "Hello, Dolly!". I wonder why Ken Films never released a 400' super 8 digest.

The seller made a video.

It's really faded but it's nice to have a small part. I'd love to own the complete feature on 16mm.

I also watched two condensed Walt Disney Educational Films featuring James MacArthur. "Swiss Family Robinson" and "Kidnapped". They were originally released in 1960. Both 16mm cut downs are edited well. There are lines and some splices but they both have great color and "Swiss Family" is letter-boxed.

It was fun seeing Sessue playing the head pirate in that film, most people remember him from "The Bridge Over the River Kwai" as the stubborn Japanese commander of the prison camp ...

Just got Star Wars Scope Derann, 2001 scope, and ET teaser, and Die Hard 3 trailer.

I watched reel 4 of Star Wars and it looks superb! I can't wait until my theater is set up so I can watch this properly.

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

Great print, that "Forbidden planet", Laksmi! Not too many copies of that print out there these days.

We ran a few shorts last night. First off Disneys The Mad Doctor . Then Classic Home Cinema's print of the 1937 Columbia classic cartoon Hollywood Picnic , which is a really nice print. Finished up with the Blackhawk, Charley Chase two-reeler The Nickel Nurser - fantastic.
Here's a couple shots from the CHC print:

What did I show on Saturday. We had a mammoth session on super 8, but first a panic the GS1200 take-up was pulling the film too
much. Lucky this forum has again helped me out. Time to get the Fumeo out, bit of over kill as its the 9139 Marc, but fun anyway.

Flip the Frog in The Cuckoo Murder Case (1930)
Flip the Frog in The Music Lesson (1932) Super 8mm Sound
TEASER TRAILERS: ENFORCER, POSEIDON, BRUCE LEE and a few others
80's Adverts & Harold Lloyd World Of Comedy trailer Super 8mm film colour/b&w
Carquake from Iver a very full 400ft
Flecher Films Steam Train film "Days Of Steam" a little faded but also some of the original looked more faded.
A DCR advert reel
Aubrey's Lunch Stand Custard pie fight with sound
The girl on a cockerel Pathe Pic "Around The World"
and a couple of others too.
Followed this again with dvd "Destination Moon" and "Forbidden Planet"

Now I have a confession to make here. This is the first time in TEN years that I have watched super 8 and only re-started with 16mm a few months ago.

Must say that both super 8 projectors worked first time. The Elmo problem stems from the last service at Hamimex quite a few years ago.

Now need to win the lottery for a home cinema to have a permanent set-up. The projectors seem even heavier.

But film never seems to leave your blood does it. Its still got a special magic to it.

Still in the SC-FI theme to night is STAR WARS DIGESTS super 8 400 digest has all the good scenes from the movie. You won't have to change all those bothersome reels. I have 5 X 400 reels of Digests with great prints with good color. I guess I saved myself a thousand and got a digest to boot of EMPIRE STRIKES BACK  -  -

Saw a few more from the BFCC haul
The Electric Horseman, 2x400'

The Great Escape, 2x400' scope
 -

 -

The Great Grape Ape: Flying Saucery, 200'
 -

Tom & Jerry: Jerry and Jumbo, 200'

The Island, 800'

I believe the Nikon D3200 is making them look worse, as they were quite good on screen, especially The Electric Horseman and The Island

Tonight I watched my other short Disney 16mm films.

The first Walt Disney cartoon to be released in CinemaScope, "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom". My copy is not 'Scope and has some lines but the color is great. Academy Award winner from 1953.

 -

 -

Sergei Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" from the 1946 film "Make Mine Music". Narrated by Sterling Holloway. This is a patchwork print. The first quarter of the film has great color. The rest is faded.

 -

 -

Made after the 1978's "Child of Glass" with a different cast, Walt Disney Educational Films released the 10 min. film "The Ghost Belonged To Me" based on the Richard Peck novel. It is part of a 1979 TV special called "Once Upon a Midnight Scary" starring Vincent Price.
