not so much last night but during the day.

Thought I better run some films its been a while "winter out here" and amazing as it seems and after sitting for a few months frozen the old GS1200 still went [Eek!] [Smile]

my favourite 800ft reel

Fantasia trl
Soundtrack Demo
Pastoral Symphony
Dance Of The Hours
The Sorcerer's Apprentice.....slightly faded but still looks and sounds great.

On 16mm B/H 1680 it needed a run as well

"A Train For Christmas"...26 minutes long, made by The NZ National Film Unit around 1974, a very popular and sought after film out here.
Its available in Super8 from Derann but only as a 200 footer I guess around 9-10 minutes long anyone got a print?

break time [Roll Eyes] then.....

16mm Feature "The Karate Kid" 1984 excellent print rock steady image, great movie.

Graham. [Smile]

I did that, Jean with a sepia print of "Stagecoach", (1939). It was released as an optical sound feature, but in sepia-tone. The sepia has switched to a brownish red, but a blue filter works wonders, as its a black and white film anyhow.

Graham,

I have the 200' "A Train For Christmas"

Nice to know it is longer and from 1974. I love the print...sharp as a pin and spot-on color!

I'm going to watch it tonight!

One of the coolest double features I have ever programmed on the big screen:

Bell Science Labs “Hemo The Magnificent.” 16mm Parts 1 & 2 complete @ 8:30

Then after a quick break

Fantastic Voyage – super 8 cinemascope @ 9:50

It is interesting to note that, in the lines of script, both movies mentioned the human body as an invention of a spiritual kind; and also that sea water is part of our ever existence.

My print of Hemo has a few splices and is pink faded on Eastman stock. However for those that are a bit squeamish the pink fade does make it easier to watch. I recall in days of Junior high, some students could not stomach some of these great science films.

All in all, a great Sunday night in the home cinema!

Back to my favorite cup of tea.

Tonight it was time to re-screen Disney's THE RESCUERS (Italian print on 8 mm). I had many copies, in the past years. I actually own a 4:3 and a very rare letterbox one. The first one is absolutely the best ever. Color is still great. No fade. No pink nor red.

Just some white flakes (probably some dust from the original source, used for both edition), but nothing so serious.

Projector used: Elmo ST 1200 HD m+o

Tonight two full 240m reels with Tom & Jerry, color and sound S8 Film Office release, 11 episodes in total. Quality was perfect. To finish off two Popeye cartoons, also on 8mm. A great evening with classic cartoons. As a follow up I will soon screen my 16mm prints of Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor and Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves, nothing beats those [Big Grin]

On Sunday I showed THE LAST COMMAND, the complete 12 reel version,on std 8 and retaining very good colors, with a most interesting performance by Arthur Hunnicut as a hick Davy Crockett,perhaps a truer portrayal than Fess Parker's or John Wayne's.Supporting program included FACE OF THE DEAD,a rare "Inner Sanctum" tv episode from 1954,an old Derann print and MICKEY'S TENT SHOW,a Mickey McGuire (Rooney) talkie.Both on std 8.
Got into a western mood so,on Monday I showed GUNMAN FROM BODIE with Buck Jones,Tim McCoy and Raymond Hutton and WATER RUSTLERS with Dorothy Page and Dave O'Brien (who is also in BODIE,a favorite actor of mine).Both on super 8.

Hi Osi. Yes, I do. In many years I have found just one letterboxed copy of THE RESCUERS. The 4:3 edition (of course I'm referring to Italian prints) is a little easier to find. But color, in this second case, is normally turning brown/red.
Thanks God the 4:3 copy I have in my collection still has excellent color.

The letterboxed edition is a little brownish, even if color is still very good. But, as I already said, just one copy like that found in 30 years!
