Last night I saw more SC-FI in the mood for LOGANS RUN 400 digest color sound . It really holds up over the years with the acting and effects work I love it. And Jenny Agutter still looks great every time.  -

I love "Logan's Run"! I need to watch it again. A great digest.

I was going to put the projector away after viewing the Disney films but I decided to run one more. It's the only partial feature I have on 16mm. Reel 3 of Neil Simon's "The Out-Of-Towners" from 1970 starring Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis.

Was "Twins Of Evil" worth the wait for you? The print looks very good. Its a nice feeling when you get something after a long wait.

Oh, yes, for sure. I did own this as a 11+ year old (I think I bought it when I was 12) and loved it to bits.

We were allowed for me to bring my Elmo ST-600M to school and I showed first a Disney, The Swiss Family Robinson digest Island of Mystery. All was good. Then I put on Twins of Evil and when Cushing do his thing and the head is lifted from the body, he screamed STOP :-/ Didn't think anyone would mind seeing films, I didn't get scared :-)

Oh, memories ... It is a slight moving problem on it though, will try it in another projector and see. Also might do some lubrication on it.

Is it a left to right movement? I had a problem with a couple of Walton releases "Holy Grail" was one that had the problem, but only one reel. The problem stemmed from poor slitting. If you feel at the edge of the film it might feel rough, that is what mine that had sideways weave.

Yes, it is side to side and I was told it might help with lubricating the film with Film Renew or some similiar liquids.

I will try to feel the side (I know my Buck and the Preacher 400' had two places where there was obvious wrong cutting)

Amazing pics Vidar Should it be on 8 not quite sure..

Just packing the Xenon away but the Halloween show went off well and every time I watch it reminds me of the 8mm review I did for Derek way back when. I still think the 8mm scope print looks better than any Blu-Ray I have to say! Use a F1 and 8Z to see the best from this Derann print.

I took a look at The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a Blackhawk print on 8mm.

 -

I also put on Psycho as well, it's on 16mm and still playing...

 -

I didn't have the telecine up but, here are some pictures with my camera. I also had a request for The Wizard of Oz for a midnight show so, I'll add a picture here below from a 16mm print.

Happy Halloween!

[Cool]

Tonight i watched two great shorts, first off was The building of a Blockbuster,(or the Making of The Towering inferno), 200ft color sound and in great shape all round,
 -
 -
 -

Followed up by the brilliant 600ft edition of John Carpenters Assault on Precinct 13.This is a very good cut down but ive seen a few copies and because its pan and scan from a widescreen movie the image quality is good but never excellent,colour has held up very well considering the age of this print but i note the early signs of fade creeping in although this movie, even in the cinema, never had much in the way of colour as it is a "moody" film however, as you can see its still in very good shape. As always John Carpenter did his own music and the electronic soundtrack is perfectly matched.

yep, and we are fortunate to have the Dark Star feature which is in great shape with excellent print and sound,colour is also fine, We also have the Fog feature in scope, also with excellent quality throughout, obviously Assault on precinct 13,and the 400ft this is Elvis,although this reel is now suffering some colour fade, i am getting quite annoyed at so many titles now suffering fade,its prctically becoming the norm onmany lists
but Halloween is the one feature i would love to get hold of,three times in the past it has escaped me on lists [Frown]
The hunt is still on. [Wink]

Tonight i put our 800ft cutdown of the classic Jason & The Argonauts. We have made this edition up with the Talos extract that Derann put out supplied on a 400ft spool, (from memory this was around 300-320 feet) and part 2, 3 and 4 from Columbia. The superb print of the Derann extract outshines the other three by far but never the less it all makes up an excellent 800ft version of the film and runs for 40 minutes.
I'd still like to strangle the editor who did the columbia 200 foots, the content is fine but some of the sound edits were so poorly done. We recently obtained another part four with good colour as ours for years was utter crap in picture colour and sound but mountain films never seemed to want to do anything about it. Now, at last, we have a good all rounder and as Deranns extract,(i believe this one was shown as the BFCC), sets up the rest of the movie with its full title sequence and A1 quality. Those of you who have the rare feature, take good care of it.Your very lucky.
If my memory serves me right at the time of releasing the Talos extract Derann did say they were hoping to release one or more further extracts, what a pity this never came about, unforunatly like Close Encounters, Derann did jump a little bit too quick with the feature of Jason and like Close Encounters they were pulled by Columbia, (the 600ft cut down of the Thunderbirds movie in one of there later catalouges never made it off the ground.

Tom-I have the feature of Jason. I'm curious if there is a jump when Talos first comes around the bend in your print. Here's the clip:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhF6N-pzIUs

When I got mine a few years ago there were a few that came up for sale. Now I have seen one in quite some time. Everyone is holding onto them. One great thing about those prints is they are on estar stock and will never get vinegar syndrome.
