Hi Gian,
fantastic shots as every time [Big Grin]

Looks like a very good print.
But in Scope the film would be much better [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

Oh, I forgot to say, that I screened the 3x 400ft.-Version of The little world of Don Camillo. It's one of my all time favorites ! Didn't make any pictures...

Regards,
Michael

Wednesday evening 9th December - -

"Murder She Said" 1962 B&W 16mm.

Projector: Ampro Stylist Major Mk2

Margaret Rutherford, James Robertson Justice, Muriel Pavlow, Charles Tingwell.

Margaret Rutherford fans will know this one very well, based on the 1957 novel "4.50 From Paddington". This was the first of the big screen Miss Marple films, and indeed still as much of a delight to watch today as it was when it was released in January 1962.

Ron Goodwin's haunting and catchy harpsichord theme tune never fails to delight.

Valves and celluloid - a great combination!

Gian. The screenshots of JP look impressive. I would think they will be even more so, using your new Xenon?

At long last, who is a "happy bunny" now?

What will be the new "Holy Grail" now, I wonder?

Hi Keith.
As my official screen is not available, I'm using the wall. And the distance is so limited.
No Xenon in December for obvious reasons... [Frown]

It's a good print indeed, Keith.
THANKS THANKS THANKS.

HOLY GRAIL? Well, it would be nice to find a copy of FOOTLOOSE, considering the long LADY AND THE TRAMP waiting is now over eh eh eh.
Take care my friend. And thanks a lot for your comments. [Wink]

To be sung to the tune of “Yes, we have no bananas”

"Oh yes, we have no Xenon,
We have no Xenon today.
My screen has been hidden,
And now I’m forbidden,
To show my films that way

I guess, I'll have a "re-think",
What can I use for a screening?
There are ceilings and doors,
And even cats’ paws,
To project my “movies” on.

I will have to use my small Elmo,
Because that one has a small “throw”
Upon my bedroom wall.
So, yes we have no Xenon,
We have no Xenon today". [Razz]

A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five. [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

Gian ...

I wonder if your print is a non masked or letterboxed print. I have the Laserdisc of this, from when it first came out, and the image was only letterboxed to 1.66 ratio, (I think thats right) and not the anamorphic scope. Was this ever released in anamorphic scope? Very nice shots as usual ...

... but then, its such a victory in this case, as it is a print that I'm sure you had all but given up on before "SuperKeith!" flew in and rescued it! The print made it and I'm so glad for you!

Hi Paul,
a warm welcome from Germany to the best forum on the net !

Yesterday I screened the Derann Scope-print of Terminator 2 - Judgement day. Stunning colours (perhaps a little bit blueish) and stunning sharpness, too.

Projector: Elmo ST-1200 HD with Elmo 1.3-lens
Anamorphot: Rathenower Rectimascope 48/2x

And as every time: my camera is not the best [Big Grin]

Regards,
Michael

Thanks Michael, Gian, and ALL for the very enjoyable screen shots!

Michael- I think those colors are great. As far as the bluish tint in some scenes, those scenes look like that in the movie in EVERy format I've seen (35mm,VHS,ect), so I wouldn't worry about that at all.

Gian- Love that Jurassic Park print! I might consider that one as well from CHC. Let me know how the recording works out.

James.

Hi James,

many thanks.
I compared it with the DVD and there are the colours blueish, too.
But I think at the 8mm-print it is a little bit more but not very annoying.

Have a nice (screening) weekend and read you next week,
Michael

Miracle on Main Street

Great little indie; Blackhawk print.

Pretty sharp image, and a good movie for the Christmas season.

Hey All,

For those of you who may not know I do a weekly film series in the performance space at the radio station I volunteer at. Last Night I showed a nice super 8 Blackhawk scored print of Steamboat Bill JR. with Buster keaton. For starters I showed another super Blackhawk Buster Keaton film The Blacksmith, which is one of My favorites. Next week it will be a night of Laurel and Hardy with A super 8 Blackhawk print of Pardon Us, and starting with Big Business.

This series for anyone who might be able to attend, is on the tip of Cape Cod in the town of Provincetown every Thursday through March, and of course there is plenty of Popcorn [Cool] I have been doing this now for 5 years, and its a great way to view my films on a big screen too!

Welcome, Paul!
I did not notice your post before. Sorry!

Michael, I know you have a copy of FOOTLOOSE (I've red it on your site). Maybe I'll find a print, one day.
You lucky guy! Hope to see soon some screen captures posted here [Wink] .
CIAO!

Last night I screened some old home movies for screening purposes while shooting with a DV camera.

Afterwards I enjoyed some Popeye 50' silents on Standard .

Then, at last, I could finally test my new Elmo ST180M (see own thread: http://8mmforum.film-tech.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=005061) but as the lamp is missing, I only got to listen to my copy of Who's on First [Razz]

Sound was very unstable, due to the belts being worn completely, actually snapping just as Sebastian Dimwitty begins the Who-Naturally part of the sketch. Speed was good for the parts where the belts actually worked tho!

--------------------
Well who’s on first? Yeah. Go ahead and tell me. Who. The guy on first. Who. The guy playin’ first base. Who. The guy on first. Who is on first! What are you askin’ me for? I’m askin’ you!

Jeroen,
I know sometimes it seems I'm a little repetitive, but this is really one of the best Disney's issued by Derann! Color is so amazing.
I'm so satisfied with it. And, of course, I have to thank you once more.
Ciao!
