Still being a relatively new comer to 16mm, i keep on finding all the great one off titles, (but not quite getting them).
Today, a friend of mine who use to collect cine films many years ago, sent me two wonderful catalouges. The first was from Looney movies here in Plymouth, the other is a very good, thick glossy book like catalogue of 16mm films for hire from "Harris Films", Glenbuck Road in Surrey. WOW, how i wish i could find just some of the titles in this book. It reads like a Christmas wish list. I will be sitting down tonight having just viewed a couple of trailers and with a Cup tea, will look through it and dream. Over the next few days or so i will pop up a few pages. There are too many for me to copy the whole book but i will put up some to share.

I have that one and an earlier one too. They used to have the MGM 16mm too.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

I used to hire 'The Robe' regularly from Ron Harris until their increases priced me out. Wonder what happened to all their prints when they closed. Perhaps some went to Filmbank and, no doubt, some to be bandsawn
