Gian: considering its origins, this isn't a bad print. I really like the ending with all the suits of armor attacking the Germans.
For your info: I'm now into reel #2 (of 5) of fixing the damaged perfs on Profondo Rosso.

Osi: "Clown of the Jungle" is one of my favorite too (I love the bird's song liapapapapapapapapapapapapa-pa-liapapapapapapapapapapapapa-pa!)

Hello Jean-Marc.
I agree. And it's not so easy to find this title, so I'm quite happy the way it is.
Thanks for updating all works-in-progress on your PROFONDO ROSSO copy.
Let me know. CIAO.

Thursday July 2 @ 9:15pm

REVOLUTIONARY ROAD

Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet play a married couple trying to lead ordinary lives working through their problems.

Pleased to report part of this movie was filmed in the small town of Beacon Falls, Connecticut where I grew up as a young boy. I'll try not to give away to much here.

Early in the film they are driving home from an evening out. At a rest area along the highway, they have a discussion inside and outside of the car. As traffic heads away from them in the background, you can see a dimly lit highway overpass. For this scene and shot, my Grandfather's farmhouse would have been directly behind the camera. You will not see his property as this is a night time scene.

Anyways, it made our family excited when the crew came to town. [Wink]

Last night I screened "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (Super 8mm, Scope, Stereo). I had originally planned just to watch a small bit of the feature to answer a question about the print but I got hooked (again!) and enjoyed every minute.

It's hard not to watch Raiders til the end once the movie's started!
This is one of the 16mm prints (LPP, scope) that I'm taking with me to Provence next week as we are about to start our summer bash of outdoor screenings.

Sunday night super 8 screening:

REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (Italian edition and print)

Do you know if a good print in SCOPE of this classic of classics I'm in love with has ever been issued in 8 mm? All info will be appreciated. The copy I have is not one of the best. A real pity.

Did a few new trailers last night:
Billy Madison [slight water damage [Frown] ]
Parenthood
Ernest Goes To Jail

Also managed to get half way through a mystery reel before the homebrew red LED conversion in my 1040 fell out of alignment. To add insult, the mystery reel had a silver track anyway. [Frown]

Switched to S8 watched that film with the idiot putting on a film incorrectly "Project the Right Image" I believe.

Gian..your Family Robinson looks good to me.

I believe with a simple filter in front of your projector it will help much the pictures to get a bit blue.

Just do a simple trial on your photoshop to do that and see what the result will be.

However, there's some nice blues in the mother's dress. Great screenshots Gian. Is it kodak SP on that print? I notice that the plant life might be slightly off green, if that's what you were talking about. besides that, it looks vintage to me.

That brings up a good point about film and color. I have a print of "A Star is Born" (the 1930's version, the best in MY opinion, but some favor the Judy garland version), and there are shots in the film where the faces are more pinkish then they should be, and the backgrounds aren't very colorful, but her flower corsage has brilliant color. I wonder if, in some cases, these prints are suspect at best when brand new.

Winbert, thanks a lot for your suggestion.
And yes, Osi, Kodak SP on the prints.

About your copy of A STAR IS BORN: very interesting. I have some movies, in my collection, with the same 'problem'.

Big piece of news: DERANN's FOR THE BIRDS, MASTER AND COMMANDER and THE FOX AND THE HOUND have been finally delivered today. What a long waiting! Tonight I will screen MASTER AND COMMANDER: shots will be posted, of course. I cannot wait.

No news about TITANIC: it should be here soon. I hope, at least. CIAO!

Gian ...

The fade certainly isn't too bad on that "Swiss" print. I prefer a slight SP fade to a Eastman fade any day. A light browning doesn't hurt a projection too much, but boy! You certainly notice a Eastman fade right away!

Now, that James Dean print hasn't aged as well sadly, but it's certainly a rarer print, to be sure.
