One thing with this obsession I mean hobby is that we have many avenues to explore with each and every film.

On the leader of many super 8 prints you will find a laboratory negative printing date with today being the anniversary of Warners FOOTLIGHT PARADE issued as a 2 X 400ft sound film in the 70's. I found a new and unused film still with its tape attached to the leader so it was a joyful moment to project it as I did once before when I had hair.

Did a test run of tonight's celebratory programme and yes it was printed up 41 years ago to this very day. Putting film programmes together its handy to have some sort of theme going on and lab dates are another way to pin a programme together which has proven fun over the years.

The film itself is a delightful watch coming in those two clamshell blue boxes and matching reels in glorious black and white. The story is wrapped around the dawn of talking pictures so a nice movie to have really.



Happy anniversary Footlight Parade negative and thanks to Derann Film Services for bringing this release about.
We raise a glass to you!

I love this movie. It's so over the top. It's dialogue is snappy and risque. It's supercharged Busby Berkeley.
