And you thought Harry was just a magician

Regarding the extra-length TWO TARS, I asked a similar question about a year ago. Nobody seemed to have a valid reason why. My guess is that Blackhawk had an extra long prologue section for this one. I have only seen the restored version that Bhawk did in 1975 with the original titles -- that version had no prologue.

You have got to be kidding me!

L&H Midnight Patrol

I have sold for much less near-mint L&H Super 8 sound features! You can get this in 16mm for about the same price and most likely less.

on ebay at the moment there are some "Non rewind" reels. How do these work. I think i can imagine that the film wraps around that adaptor and the film must enter a slot/hole and go into the reel and form around the inside outer edge going towards the center. Am i right.

Because of the way they work do films have a tendenacy to scratch or rub.

Graham

I bought a couple of these off Ebay a few weeks ago, I couldn't resist it because like you I was intrigued to know how they worked.

They are an incredibly clever design, I took them to work and showed a colleague who whilst not interested in cine, appreciates a good gadget, and that's exactly what they are.

Basically, you wind the film onto the non-rewind spool just as though it were a normal auto spool; it has a little clip which you must have in the "up" position whilst it is loading and this is then pushed into the "down" position prior to showing the film. To show the film the projector has to be first fitted with the special adaptor which clips on to the feed spool arm, the loaded non-rewind spool is then loaded on to the adaptor, having first had the special clip pushed down, the white spool cover attached and the spool itself pulled apart (the two halves seperate from each other by about 5mm). You then turn the spool a couple of revolutions in the wrong direction and if you're lucky the end of the film will push out from the core end of the spool, this is as a result of having pushed the "clip" down which frees up some space, and pulling the spool apart which allows the film to rotate on the core.

The end of the film is then pulled over the rotating part of the adaptor and fed into the film path as normal. In order for the film to finish the show in a non-rewind status it is necessary to have loaded the take up arm with another special non-rewind spool.

The possibility of the film getting scratched is really quite frightening; I tried mine on an old film that I wasn't too worried about. All in all it really is a gimmick and it's not hard to see why sales of this device didn't take off, in truth it is far less of a problem to rewind the film than it is to fiddle about with the clips and spools seperators and attatch and then remove the special adaptor.

As a gimmick and a potential film scratcher it scores 10 out of 10, as a labour saving device I think it scores about - 5! [Wink]

Worth picking up though if they go cheaply - just so that you have a bit of cine history in your cupboard. [Big Grin]

This guy is trying to sell a batch of 34 films (reels?). However he's set the auction up as if he were selling 34 identical items; so whatever you bid is multiplied by 34.

I've sent him a polite message trying to point this out to him, but only received sarcasm in reply; so beware of bidding with the terminally stupid.

This item didn’t fetch much although it was a favourite of mine causing much fun here.

Probably worn sprocket holes kept the price low?

Some of you may find it funny: At the bottom of the following page of a german Eumig listing the seller gets the usual offer about shoes, bags etc by a chinese company. Unfamiliar as he/she seems to be with the language, the seller answers that he/she doesn't understand but could gladly send to U.K., and that the postage would be 30euros.

http://cgi.ebay.de/Eumig-S-807-Super8-Normal8-Projektor_W0QQit emZ180105199944QQcategoryZ8271QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Just to avoid misunderstanding, i'd like to emphasize that i am not underestimating the german seller. On the contrary i am impressed by his/her kindness.

Somebody is bidding almost 10 Million Dollars to buy "The General Lee" from "The Dukes of Hazzard"

Ebay (Motors) Item number:
250108256198

The funny part is the auction states "Get low monthly payments".

-How low could they be? $100,000?

There's something fishy here. I can't imagine James Bond's Astin Martin getting that kind of cash and that would be ten times the icon this one is!

Update: There is now an item on the auction that bidders came in and bid the price through the roof just for fun. (Some people really need a hobby...)
