You know, I still think they are one of the best two reel version cut-downs ever made; I'm talking about The Jolson Story and Jolson Sings Again.

Ran them today and the editing is spot-on. I think it is one of the only times that the commentary is not intrusive, but actually informative in holding the whole story together. Larry Parks made Jolson a much more likeable character and it is because of these films that he has the persona we know today.

With Sining In The Rain and Grease, The Jolsons are my favourite Super 8 musicals.

You are so correct, David, the Jolsons are great digests. I had them for years and enjoyed them until I acquired both features in 16mm IB Tech. I never tire of watching those films.

Dino
Claus is right.About 22fps was the average speed in the twenties.
Liked this "library thing".I may do it sometime,when I find the time! I too collect collectors' magazines.They are invaluable research tools.That was why 8MM/CLASSIC FILM COLLECTOR was called "The film collector's bible". Also have runs of many others from that golden age of the seventies/eighties when 8mm review magazines were monthly!! In fact, I had written an article on them for the SILVER SCREEN MAGAZINE years ago.

Wow, I´m envious.
This was the only feature I watch it with my wife together twice in cinema.
As a film collector it is normal to watch a movie more than once but not for my wife.

Nice to receive news from you Jeroen.
How are you?
Thanks a lot about the shots. The movie is now totally re-recorded in Italian and in stereo. It was supplied with mono sound [Frown] .
A friendly hug.

Not really a movie night, but I ran some shorts to adjust Tower Clutch tension on take up.....

Beatles In Washington 2 x 400

Anamatrix Flight of the Osiris scope

Test reel 200 foot optical from the movie Hedda

Test reel 2oo foot magnetic Silver Streak featurette, The Making Of

Everything was super 8 sound. Tower take up tension has to be spot on - so running a few prints suggested a happy medium. Since no two prints run the same.

Like I said not really a full show, just some general maintenance on equipment.

I decided to take a break from the silents tonight, but lets face it I didn't want to stray too far cold turkey. [Smile]

So I watched a super 8 sound feature of the Harold Lloyd talkie The Sin of Harold Diddlebock (1947) - Harold gets back out on the ledge of a building, only he is joined by a lion... fun stuff....

Chip - not the only one, I ran a couple of shorts I just got from Buckingham - much nicer after a little film guard...DOH [Eek!]

First was a pretty rare Kalem short entitled The Driver of the Deadwood Coach about a stage heist that gets solved by a young photographer (played by Judson Melford in one of his only film roles). His sister is played by Gertrude Short who went on to a long career of mostly bit parts including some alongside Alberta Vaughn in her Telephone Girl series (anyone have episodes of those?) - Supposedly her cousin is Blanche Sweet who stars in my second short called The Painted Lady a Griffith Biograph.

It would be nice because the only way to watch a movie at this time is on my notebook because my childrin are to young (9 years, 4 years and 1 year old) and my wife don´t alow me to use a projector nights at home.

22nd September 2009, Tuesday

Super 8 screening night with:

- MAZINGA VS GOLDRAKE in Scope, by Go Nagai (Ariete);

- SUMMERTIME by Ub Iwerks (Blackhawk);

- HEIDI (Ersa). I don't know anything about this movie; the print is quite good. I'd like to know who was the director and when it was released. Cannot find any info on the Web. So strange!

- THE NIGHT BEFORE XMAS - Tom and Jerry (Walton);

- THE RESCUE - from 'The Rescuers' (Walt Disney Home Movies).
