Thank you Chris for posting these. I left a comment on Earthquake. Some months ago the American Cinematecque showed Earthquake with Sensurround. It was really fun to watch, listen, & experience it again. Will probably get around to watch most of your posts.

These digests were so well put together, at a time when this was the nearest one could get to owning a copy of a genuine Hollywood blockbuster. My wife was very understanding, letting me buy some of them, when we were raising a family on a shoestring!

Hard to beleive the prices at the time. Now most have faded and worth next to nothing. Some of my collection has servived and have not bought many of the new releases, but the one's that I have bought have not suffered the fate of the earlier releases. The B&W prints stay the same and at least they can be run without a explanation to why they look so bad.

Wow Chris, your youtube channel front page is not a good advertisement for Eastman Colour!

I am going to watch The Deep. I have had this for over 25 years, but for some reason left it sealed in its shrink wrap. The longer it went the more I thought I should leave it sealed. So to this very day I have never watched the digest........until now.

Hey Chris,
Thanks for posting "Oz". How come there's so much flicker? Is it the upload or is it my pc? The other digests don't seem to have it so much.

For your viewing pleasure I have just uploaded "Can-Can".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oDNDayHkko

In my opinion, a well edited digest. I tried to post another Shirley MacLaine film,"Sweet Charity", but the server failed. I may try again if anyone wants to see it. As with most Universal 8 musicals, though, not a great edit. Like "Thoroughly Modern Millie", it only has two complete songs. I think Ken Films made better editing choices for all the Fox musicals.

Speaking of Ken Films and Fox musicals, stay tuned. The Academy Award winning Best Picture of 1965 should be up soon.

Brad, The reason for the flicker on the (very red) "Oz" digest is it's the best I can do with my JVC mini DV camcorder. I set the shutter speed to 1/60. There would be way more roll if I didn't. You will notice it in most of the newer uploads. As for those videos with less flicker, they were recorded 25 years ago with a Sony VHS camera. For some reason, it seemed to handle the roll better.

No Worries, Mate! I am delighted just to be able to watch them on line. I feel better knowing that it's not my connection. Thanks again for posting.

No problem. And now, one of the most popular motion pictures ever made. Loved by millions. Hated by Pauline Kael.

"The Sound of Music"

The short version.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7W_W0Yq2RE

Not too faded but, unfortunately, the sound is a bit muddy.

There are actually two projectors. The films on the videos made from 25 years ago were projected on a Chinon 6100. For the new videos, I use a Sears Sound II.

Yes, Jacqueline Bisset was and still is a beautiful woman.

Now, here is a new video. One of my favorite 3x400 digests.

"Clash of the Titans"

Enjoy!

Colin. Will be thinking of you over the weekend when we show 'The Elstree Story' having read your old review of it. Mine is also on a 1200ft reel by the way.. [Cool]

Chris. Someone has out done your Star Wars having posted it a couple of years ago and having nearly 2000 Super 8mm Flu-Tube viewings. WOW! I also see someone else has put the HD Blu-Ray disc up so I wouldnt worry so much about your old 8mm cut downs. [Eek!]

Thanks, Lee. Good to know. But, what's Flu-Tube? I looked it up and couldn't find anything. Can you link it here or share the URL for the other "Star Wars" vid? I'd love to see it.

And now for my new videos.

I posted these last night.

"It Happened One Night". A decent digest but not perfect. It has all that that useless narration. Like, "The fall of the walls of Jericho." Really? At least the print is in good shape.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kszmBpPbwts


"JAWS 2". I just got this yesterday. It, too, is a good digest. It tosses all the Amity town council vs. Brody stuff aside and gets right to the action. And that's perfectly OK. Even better, it's partially letterboxed.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhVGom97SYU&feature=related

Have fun!

Stay tuned, there's more to come.

Enjoy The Elstree Story this weekend Lee. Bought this way back on it's original release in the 70's. A very good print & sound. When 8mm prints are good they stay in my collection.

I've never seen it but The Elstree Story sounds like a really great film. It is a fantastic studio.

And now for something completely different.

"Monty Python and the Holy Grail" has been deleted due to music copyright.

Too bad, really. It's a really fun and shows most of the best bits in just 17. min.

In accordance with the topic, I figure I wouldn't be out of line by posting this novelty of my own. It's a silent-sound Star Wars digest, performed by me & my brothers. A more detailed description is under the video. Enjoy.

Here are two excellently edited digests. They make sense and cover all the major story points in under twenty minutes.

The first is a classic from 1951. "The African Queen"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUG-HDA5VBE

The other is the medical suspense film "COMA" from 1978.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atFYDg89s3Q

I really do appreciate how well these are put together. The editors did a great job. Especially those who made the MGM digests.

I like the blanked-out name in the credits of that JAWS 2 digest. Did some actor not make the cut?

The actor who didn't make the "JAWS 2" digest is Collin Wilcox. What I find interesting is Lorraine Gary gets second billing and she is nowhere to be found in this cut-down.

If you watch the beginning of "Animal House", look at the credit block with Kevin Bacon's name in it. You will see Lisa Baur has been blacked out. In fact, two very well-known actors were not in that 2x400 at all. Donald Sutherland and Karen Allen.

I have this digest and the edit is wonderful.

Last year someone offered me (reel 3 and 4?) of this feature which include all the river scenes. So I was thinking to splice it into my digest making this become a very long digest.

BTW, your color still looks good!

Winbert, It sounds like you could have made a nice 600' "African Queen". I thought about doing the same thing. Someone on eBay was selling reels 5 and 6 but I missed it. They sold for $20. There was a complete version but it was a little out of my price range. That sold for $300. And yes, I think the color on my copy has held up quite well. It looks like the rest of my films did 20 years ago before most of them turned red.

This next film was recorded before that happened. It is another Ken Films digest of a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. And like "The Sound of Music" cut-down, "The King & I" squeezes as many songs as it can in the time allotted. It also uses a montage of other scenes to advance the plot while these songs play over them.

Enjoy!

Chris,

I think reel 5 and 6 will be the last two reels of this 105 minutes film.

Correction: I bought reel 2 and 3 to cover all the river scene.

BTW, I haven't seen this feature at all. Any idea if any other scene beside the river scenes, that is interesting to be joined?
