Dino, don't be jealous ah ah ah.

Unfortunately, apart from THE CAT O' NINE TAILS (1971; I will screen it soon) officially issued by Sil.Ma in a letterboxed edition printed on Kodak SP, all Argento's released on 8mm are definitely very poor prints (TENEBRE, among them, is the best one... Imagine other titles' quality/condition! Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD, Argento's cut, is also a decent print, even if unauthorized).

I'm very happy I found that copy of TENEBRE, but the quality is the one you can see in the screen captures I have posted.

I'm actually after FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET (1972), the only Argento I still miss in my collection. As poor as 'all' the others.

Anyway...

Super 8 test screening afternoon (just trailers).
Titles:

- ANASTASIA
- SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS
- BAMBI
- FUN AND FANCY FREE
- DUMBO
- SHREK
- 101 DALMATIANS (live action).

Screen shots as usual.

Equipment: Elmo Gs 1200 Xenon; Elmo 1.0

Hi Flavio.

I did not realize there was a copy for sale (I was probably travelling). But, not so longtime ago, thanks to Google I have found the auction you are referring to. It was of course too late [Frown] ; the seller was from Rome (mabuse_doc or something like that). Maybe you know him? I've been asking to other collectors if they know him, just to have some additional info about that print.

As far as I know, 4 FLIES is probably as rare as ZOMBI is (well... 10 existing copies of ZOMBI, it seems. How many 4 FLIES? 6/8? [Eek!] ), but ZOMBI was at least printed on Kodak SP (whereas 4 FLIES is on Eastman) and it's a good flat edition. 4 FLIES was originally issued in scope, sadly not mantained in the 8mm print [Frown] (as poor sharpness as PROFONDO ROSSO or L'UCCELLO DALLE PIUME DI CRISTALLO [Frown] )

A copy was offered to me one month ago, more or less. But, even if rare, the price was absolutely exorbitant. I said NO, THANKS.
Thanks for asking me, anyway.
I will find it, one day [Wink] . I'm sure about it.

Take care, ciao!

Not last night but the night before

The Castle short I bought new back in the 70s "Egg Cracker Suite" from 1943 it looks as good as the day I bought it, although never rich in colour its still an excellent print and with great music much in keeping with the period I think its on polyester stock.

"Beauty and the Beast" 1991 one of many stunning Derann Super8 prints.

Its been years since I last ran this print and in that time I modified the GS1200 projector to a two bladed shutter and a Xenophot lamp...what a huge improvement to picture quality [Cool] I noticed this more so when running "Beauty and the Beast", excellent stereo track as well [Smile]

Great shots from the both of you!

Gad, that Anastasia trailer makes me long for the feature on Super 8. What a great one that would be. That film really did a good job of presenting a love story in a realistic way that would make a live action film envious.

Hi Winbert, how are you?
Hope you are ok.

quote:
But, not so longtime ago, thanks to Google I have found the auction you are referring to
Referring to that specific print, I simply entered the title of the movie I was looking for, format (super 8) and Google supplied all results, included the following link to the auction on eBay (no longer available, now):

4 mosche di velluto grigio (eBay Italia)

If you enter '4 MOSCHE DI VELLUTO GRIGIO SUPER 8 EBAY' through Google, you will find this link (and more) by yourself. The auction was already over but it was still possible to see all details (now it's not anymore, but when I did it was. So it was within 90 days after listing).
Seller nick was also still viewable, of couse.

I mailed him/her through eBay, but I suddenly noticed it was too late and totally useless [Frown] as the movie had already gone. Do you know the seller, by any chance? (see my previous post: I'm quite sure that one was his ID on eBay).

Hope this will help. Ciao [Wink] .

Gian and Graham,
great screenshots.

My copy of B&B has amazing colours and a stunning sharpness but a lot of lines - some green on the left hand. I saw it too late, because I had no time to screen it at this time, so I couldn't say anything to the seller.
So it is not the best to screen [Frown]

Chip,
that seems to be a nice programm.
But Svengali I don't know [Roll Eyes]

Last night, "One Week" by Buster Keaton. First viewing, and a big hit. Amazingly funny for something so old.

Yes, perhaps sometimes I will buy another copy of it.
But, if Lisa-Marie (my 3 year old daughter) will love projecting and this film in the future, she could use this as "practise copy" for full features. [Smile]

Gian, very cool shots of Argento's Tenebre. I have a print of this on Agfa. Wish I could get Suspiria and Inferno for a decent price.

Last night, inaugural flight of our BD player with "Up".

Okay - after a long time here are some screenshots from me [Smile]

Had a little bit time to screen Star Trek (TOS) - The man trap. I think the master was a bit faded but the colours are still there.

Projector: Elmo ST-1200 HD with 1.3-lens

Today, I finally took the time to screen the two reels I recieved from Gian (Grazie!):

HERCULES (Scope trailer) - Stunning colours, beautiful print!
OUR GANG - FOLLIES OF 1938 - Very nice B/W print, and wonderful mono sound.

Sadly I didn't have my camera there, so I didn't take any screenshots. I'm planning on doing another screening with the same reels when I get well (I'm currently sick, so screened the the films on the wall next to my bed), and then I'll do it properly in the screening room and get some shots [Smile]

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!

Hey MIcheal!

I like seeing faded prints screened, it makes me feel better about my collection! [Big Grin]

It appears that "The Man Trap" had reels of assorted color stock. Some of iot is definitely red eastman but other reels appear to be browned Kodak SP. Still, great to see!
