Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on February 28, 2010, 10:11 AM:
You are so right. Of the above films, "Monster that Challenged the World" is probably the best edit. "Night Caller" starts out wonderfully but jumps to the end so abruptly that it makes little sense. The "Claw Monsters" box is vastly superior to the film inside.
I'll do my best. What titles would you like to see?

LONDON LANDMARKS, not the generic 'Adventures in Travel'
SAN JUAN CITY OF CONTRAST, blue and white box

As a kid I always figured THE CLAW MONSTERS was ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS, but apparently it's the serial PANTHER GIRL OF THE CONGO. That cover artist looks like he might have done some covers for Eerie Publications.
Posted by Terry Lagler (Member # 1110) on March 05, 2010, 08:14 AM:
I've got to admit Dinosaurus has always been a childhood guilty pleasure of mine, although I still don't have the 8mm digest. I'm assuming it features the climatic "beast v.s. machine" battle.
Time to add more images - as you can see I lean towards that monster art!!
I've always wondered if this Rodan artwork was taken from any existing posters or is it only found on the 8mm digests.

Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 08, 2010, 08:35 PM:
As I remember, "Dinosaurus" was an ok edit. It does have the Dino vs. Digger sequence. I always feel sad when the Bronto buys it.
Strange how "Night of the Blood Beast" uses the artwork from Hemisphere's "Beast of Blood"!
Nice cover! I forgot about that one.

The MASTER OF HORROR box was always one of my favorites. As I kid, I always wanted to buy that digest but could never acquire it. After 35+ years, I finally acquired the digest last year, but was disappointed when (surprise!) the actual digest didn't live up to the promise of the box art. (Another digest that didn't come close to living up to its box art was MY SON, THE VAMPIRE.)
Oh well, I guess that's the fun of digest box art.

What movie is "Master Of Horror" excerpted from?
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 17, 2010, 09:24 AM:
"Master of Horror" is the US edit of the 1965 Argentinian film "Obras Maestras Del Terror". The film tells three Edgar Allan Poe tales, "The Facts in M. Valdemar's Case", "The Cask of Amontillado" and "The Tell-Tale Heart". The US release of the feature cut out the last story. The Ken digest uses the Valdemar segment.

The Claw Monsters was the VERY FIRST S8 movie I ever bought! I was about nine years old and saved my money to go to Holiday Village (A department store in Bloomington, Minnesota that's still there!) to buy a movie.
My dad drove me and my friend there and they always had a ton of movies and I thought The Claw Monsters cover looked the coolest so I bought it! I remember being soooo mad about how bad it was! HAH! I still have it and I'm still mad!
Posted by John Hourigan (Member # 111) on April 06, 2010, 12:00 PM:
Yes, I felt gyped as a kid when I purchased the 50-foot CLAW MONSTERS. As I recall, the actual "claw monster" looked to be a grasshopper -- those darn Republic serials!

I always wanted Claw Monsters because I had it confused with Roger Corman's "Attack of the Crab Monsters"!

LET'S GO SKIING - 200' CASTLE (Need this)
SAN JUAN, CITY OF CONTRAST - 200' CASTLE (Need this)

Ah yes, Doug, it's wonderful, how unfortunate that wasn't a release - The box alone is worth it - I only need the 400' 3 Musketeers now - Shorty
Posted by Terry Lagler (Member # 1110) on April 08, 2010, 08:10 AM:
I think its unanimous "The Claw Monsters" was a huge dissapointment.
Speaking of another that should have been way better:
"Equinox", A film I've always liked (even have the Criterion DVD) Unfortunatly the cutdown only features the guy in the caveman digs but no stop motion demon as featured on the cover!!
Usually can't go wrong with the Republic serials
and more fun ones!

I always liked Equinox. I had the 4x400' Super 8 version at one point. The DVD has the original feature (before the Jack H. Harris reshoot) and some funny commentary from the cast.
More box art!
I just got Public Enemy from Tom Stathes at the Wildwood show.
Posted by David Kilderry (Member # 549) on May 05, 2010, 06:41 PM:
I loved all of these great colour boxes and more often than notwas let down by the black & white, silent digest inside.
Today you buy a plain white box with a beautiful colour and sound film inside that exceeds my expectations almost every time!
Posted by Brad Kimball (Member # 5) on May 06, 2010, 08:24 PM:
I agree, David. Most of the KEN 200'ers were poorly constructed - hack jobs. I thought the digest for "The Odd Couple" was simply awful - it just ends abruptly with Felix exiting the apartment to go see the Pidgeon sisters. "Robin Hood" was terrible with no action at all - just alot of dialogue that was poorly captured by the subtitles and again an abrupt ending. The only 200' cutdowns from KEN that I thought were any good were "The Raven", "Planet Of The Apes", "A Bucket Of Blood", "Taste The Blood Of Dracula" and "The Beast With 5 Fingers" which mis-spelled Peter Lorre's name as 'Lori'. I was forever wishing as a kid when I finally got a sound projector that KEN would release "Dracula" and "5 Fingers" in sound.
Posted by Marshall Crist (Member # 1312) on May 06, 2010, 10:47 PM:
I thought their 200' of DESTROY ALL MONSTERS was pretty solid.
Posted by Michael De Angelis (Member # 91) on May 08, 2010, 02:15 PM:
About The Public Enemy, how is the transfer?
Early on and in the days of standard 8, the United Artist company had very good source material.
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on May 08, 2010, 10:01 PM:
I'm sorry to say that I haven't screened the film yet. Some of the early United Artists prints do look great.
I think the worst edit they ever did was this:
I doubt if there's anyone who could make sense of this one.
Posted by Brad Kimball (Member # 5) on May 09, 2010, 07:52 PM:
Is it me or are there certain KENs that I always only seem to see in 'Standard" instead of 'Super' 8.
"Vampire & The Ballerina"
"Bugs Bunny - Unruly Hare"
"Beast With 5 Fingers"
"Return Of Dracula"
And just about all the RKO titles that UA/KEN had the rights to as well as the 'Tarzan' titles.
Why would KEN release certain titles in greater quantities of the older, obsolete guage when all the newer equipment in the 70's and early 80's was all 'Super' 8?
Many of the COLUMBIA 'Stooges' titles are the same way.
I remember having these in 'Standard' and being so unhappy with the smaller picture. After weeks of holding out for the local CALDOR or ZAYRE store not getting the titles replenished in 'Super' 8, I caved in and just bought what was available.
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on June 26, 2010, 11:08 PM:
I finally took a look at Public Enemy. It's quite a nice print.
I have Beast, Return of Dracula and the Tarzan series in Super 8mm, but there certainly are plenty of Standard 8mm UA releases out there.
Posted by Michael De Angelis (Member # 91) on June 26, 2010, 11:28 PM:
Thanks very much for posting the picts. They are absolutely beautiful.
My experience has been that the UA material used in 8mm
was of print down quality, as seen in these picts.
Wow, Jean Harlow is stunning and to have it on 8mm.
I'm sure that the UA release of How to Succeed as a Gangster,
is just as beautiful.
What a great addition.
Posted by David Kilderry (Member # 549) on June 27, 2010, 01:41 AM:
Yes Brad, some titles only ever seem to show up in Std 8.
I think Ken let the box art sell their titles rather than the catalogs and marketing efforts that Castle and Columbia relied on.
Posted by Joe Caruso (Member # 11) on June 27, 2010, 10:03 AM:
Well, you have to remember too that Ken, like other distributors, were somewhat limited and could not warrant a full-scale catalog along the lines of Castle, for instance - Their renderings were abstract enough to attract filmbuyers nonetheless, I'm partial to the Castle covers more as they replicate mini-posters - Castle also had alot of offerings from the vaults and added on through time - I have a colelction of sharp Ken films and boxes, and I admit that their quality was highly superior in many cases, rivaling Castle maybe - Have yet to see a Mountain Catalog, and those RKO releases - Cheers from Shorty

Posted by John Hourigan (Member # 111) on June 27, 2010, 08:39 PM:
While the Castle editing was always far superior to Ken's edit (hack) jobs, I always found Castle boxes a tad boring when compared to the all-out "in-yer-face" Ken boxes (particularly their horror digest boxes).

I love these boxs covers what a riot check out Batman and Robins costumes look like bed cloths. You would think they could at least get a better costume designer in Hollywood?
Posted by Brad Kimball (Member # 5) on December 03, 2010, 11:24 PM:
Serials were 'B' pictures - serialized. The budgets were quite inferior to the studios' 'A' pictures. I doubt Columbia could have afforded someone like an Edith Head to design the capes and cowls. Chances are they employed studio seamstresses to come up with costumes that were viable and fit a 'B' picture's budgetary constraints. Many serials were shot on existing sets that had not been deconstructed yet. Scenes that took place on the island of Lemuria in "Return Of Chandu" with Bela Lugosi were shot on the left-over "King Kong" set on the RKO lot. Many outdoor scenes in the "Buck Rodgers" and "Flash Gordon" serials were shot on still-standing western sets and locations on the Universal lots.
Posted by Laksmi Breathwaite (Member # 2320) on December 04, 2010, 08:32 PM:
Wow you know a lot about serials but why did the seamtress at the low budget shooting just put somy wirer or something to hold up the ears of the Batman? Robin looks alright but if you just look at all the comics in those days Batman has pointed ears that are flat not horns that are rounded. Like the Dark Knight costume, Captain Marvel has a costume like in the comics and Superman in the Serials. How do they keep a top hat strait it has wires in the cloth.
Posted by Graham Ritchie (Member # 559) on December 05, 2010, 02:17 AM:
Not sure if this qualifies as "Great Box Art" but the cover has always made me smile over the last 30+ years.
Well... this cover of "Where Eagles Dare" pretty much tells you what this popular digest was all about.
PS. Doug sorry about the change in the cover photo that I submitted earlier on in your topic and have changed it back. Not sure what happend but I do remember both Winbert and myself at one point in the past were changing each others photos by mistake, hope you dont get any of our cute baby photos instead let me know if you do.

To my knowledge it was only ever released as a Scope 600 footer by Derann, however it was well done and with a good sharp and steady picture "easy to focus" its worth getting. My print does have slight fade "but very acceptable" I have heard of better prints out there, the stereo sound track is also very good.
Posted by David Kilderry (Member # 549) on December 06, 2010, 02:37 AM:
You are unlucky to have colour fade on NES. The feature film was released into theares in 1984 and I imagine the Derann 600 footer a little later.
Given low fade Kodak LPP film and the Agfa and Fuji equivalents came in in 1983, the print must have been on some older stock to have faded.
Posted by Graham Ritchie (Member # 559) on December 06, 2010, 03:47 AM:
Thats positive news, I had a close look to see if there was any ID on what the film stock is but cant find anything, although there might be some printing under the balance stripe as it just shows but not enough to make anything out,I will look around locally for another print.

Love that "Plan 9 From Outer Space" box. But what is "ultra-sonic sound"? Optical? Magnetic? Very interesting.
Posted by Brad Kimball (Member # 5) on December 09, 2010, 08:08 PM:
I remember being told that all these "Ultra", "Super" - Sonic sound terms were simply implying clear fidelity - nothing more - not even Stereo. Simply a marketing ploy to make you think there was something about the sound that was a cut above all others. Not so true. I remember a friend screened some Columbia titles that boasted these claims on the boxes and I sure couldn't hear the difference. They all sounded like any other mag track I've heard in the past. Columbia's "Tell Tale Heart" was one of them. A great one-reeler, but awfully hard to get in Super 8 Color and Sound. I seem to recall the print I saw was a Standard 8 sound version, but it seemed the same to me other than the frame was a wee smaller. I've always felt Blackhawk's mag tracks were very bassy and muddy. Many of my Stooges sound titles (particularly the 'Curly' titles) were all low on the treble end. Two exceptions are "Microphonies" and "We Want Our Mummy" which have nice clear tracks. All my 'Shemp' titles also have nice clear booming soundtracks.
Posted by Graham Ritchie (Member # 559) on December 12, 2010, 08:23 PM:
Boom... Boom... Boom....Boom....Boom...Boom...Boom.......
A slight exaggeration dont you think! good marketing though.

I've always appreciated the KEN cover art, but hated their UA covers (ie "Curse Of Dracula", "How To Succeed As A Gangster"). I've always felt the very early CASTLE covers and the UA covers had a very grade-school appearance to them.
Posted by Carter Bradley (Member # 984) on August 03, 2011, 02:24 PM:
How times have changed...In High School I worked in my local K-Mart camera department and we received a letter from the central office instructing us to remove all copies of Ken Films' "Coffy" as it was not appropriate for a family-oriented business. Of course the department manager allowed me to purchase a copy at a 20 percent discount before she shipped the others back to Ken!

Posted by Carter Bradley (Member # 984) on August 04, 2011, 02:13 PM:
John, I can verify (through catalogs) that "Nyoka," "Coffy," and "Voyage into Space" were all Ken titles. "Nyoka in the Caves of Death" was catalog #R2 (I assume the R is for Republic Pictures) and was available in 200' regular and super 8. (I couldn't verify a 50' reel). "Coffy" was catalog #297 and was available in super 8 only, 200' b/w silent, 200' color/sound, and 400' color/sound versions. And "Voyage" was catalog #291, and was available in super only, 200' b/w silent, 200' b/w sound, and 200' color/sound.
Posted by Terry Lagler (Member # 1110) on August 04, 2011, 05:36 PM:
That's spot on information Carter.
Coffy manages to cram plenty of nudity and violence into about 8 minutes and I haven't even seen the 400' version!
Posted by John Skujins (Member # 1515) on August 04, 2011, 08:02 PM:

Posted by John Davis (Member # 1184) on August 05, 2011, 10:55 AM:
Just looking back over the box art on this page and noticed a couple of things; should ‘Iwo Jima’ be ‘eight square miles OF hell’? Otherwise it could be it could be a very damp film.
Probably more concerning is the unusual position being adopted by the otherwise attractive young lady at the bottom of the art panel on the Coffy box; is it possible for a spine to be double jointed?
(I had tried to upload an image to illustrate the Coffy detail but I get a message telling me I haven't logged in successfully - even though I managed to log in to edit and used the same password each time. Curious.)
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on August 05, 2011, 01:31 PM:
Is your log in not working on the image upload page?
Entertainment Films also released The Vampire Bat in 8mm.
Great story about K-Mart! Nyoka and many of the other Republic titles (Before Ken Films took them over) were also available in 400' Standard 8mm versions.

At one point I also had a 400' Nosferatu and The Bells (1926)from them but in plain white boxes.
Posted by Graham Ritchie (Member # 559) on August 08, 2011, 12:14 AM:
Regarding past commemnts of the "Iwo Jima cover" the island itself was only 4.5 miles long and 2.5 miles wide. To take that island was very costly in lives. I think the title on the box is appropriate for those involved and speaks for itself.
Anyway.... here are some more

I had a copy of The Incredible Shrinking Man; I used to like the Castle shorts because you saw subtitles, rather than separate titles as in the Walton releases. The Castle Films in the UK were in flimsier boxes than the US copies and had a paper label rather than the image direct on the box. I am afraid I gave all of them away to a beginner when I went over to sound. Great to see these images, they bring back a lot of memories.
Posted by Hugh Thompson Scott (Member # 2922) on September 01, 2013, 11:34 AM:
I well remember the Castle two piece boxes, beautiful illustrations,
"The Mummy's Tomb" springs to mind, being one of the first Castle Film 200's I purchased. As Robert says, they invoke memories of happy collecting, long gone. Truth be told for me, I
think our friends in Germany & Holland had the nicest boxes
regarding longevity, Marketing, and UFA, with great photos on the
boxes, even though I am not really that into boxes, as it's always
the film with me, they were rather nice, as were Columbia with
nice stills from the film.
Posted by Joe Caruso (Member # 11) on September 01, 2013, 11:40 AM:

Here is one I have, not sure if it qualifies as great art, but I don't think many, even in the UK will have seen this Laurel & Hardy short. It was made by Arrow Photographic, and I bought it about 1974.
This last one says ABC Film Library, New Jersey. I remember they also did Tom Sawyer, which was also from the Selznick Studios.
