    • The glorious HOUSEBOAT starring Cary Grant and breathtaking Sophia Loren and some of the most talented and adorable children of all time! A wonderful print and a great feature for the big screen.

        • I was able to enjoy my wonderful copy of THE MUPPET MOVIE last week, which was a real treat to show the little ones in the family.

          I have a new projector coming next week that I plan on working out with my print of SORCERER (1977).

              • The Perils Of Pauline (1947). I'm lucky to have the film with a French soundtrack (the songs are in English with succint subtitles). As expected, Les exploits de Pearl White (the title in French) is inspired by the life of the famous actress.

                    • We've been happening kind of a delightful, yet almost accidental Canadian Film Festival this week. It was a multi-format adventure, but it's 16mm at its core, so it wound up here.

                      If all started when I got my very first 16mm feature last week, the National Film Board of Canada nature film "Cry of the Wild" by my favorite film maker, Bill Mason. We did a reel per night, so I added in the only NFB film I've ever heard of on Super-8 as a short that first night: "Take it From the Top" (Derann, 1x200', 'Scope) about the Canadian Centennial in 1967. The second night we used "Honeymoon Paradise"(Derann, 1x200', 'Scope, Super-8), again mostly set in Canada. The third night we just finished up the feature. Night Four: "Big Horn" Reel 1 (16mm), a nature documentary with John Denver about big horn sheep in Alberta. Reel 2 is tonight and I'm thinking of projecting my Buster Keaton "The Railrodder" DVD (NFB of Canada) as the short.

                      So today I salute my neighbors to the North!
                      -I love your films! (I'm not out of them yet, either...)

                      • It had been a couple of months since I had watched a film. The dexterity in my hands is not great but has improved recently. Thank goodness my Elmo 16cl is a slot load and easy to thread. I watched my print of "Falling in Love" with Robert de Niro and Meryl Streep. Can't get much better than those two. It also has a young Jane kaczmarek, Dianne Wiest and Harvey Keitel in supporting roles. It was so good to hear the humming of the projector again.

                            Thanks Doug! I almost forgot how much I love watching my films.

                            Last night I continued with my screenings. This time with what I think is my most watched film... "Cactus Flower." Walter Matthau at his best... He is just naturally funny and especially teamed up with character actor Jack Weston. Ingrid Bergman also shows a comedic side as Matthau's dedicated dental assistant. Let's not forget that Goldie Hawn won an academy award for her performance in this movie. Although very dated it is still one of my favorites.

                            • It has been 3 nights in a row of watching one of my films. Tonight it was the film version of George Bernard Shaw's 'The Devil's Disciple." The story basically fictionalizes the ending of the revolutionary war. Burt Lancaster plays a dedicated and benevolent minister (Anthony Anderson), while Kurt Douglas' character (Richard Dungeon) the town's sacrilegious bad boy. However a roll reversal takes place between Richard and Anthony when Richard is mistakenly identified as the minister by the Royal guards and sentenced to hang. Despite some very over the top acting this is a very enjoyable film.

                              • That's the Spirit, Janice!

                                It's one of the things I love about this hobby, that when you step away for a little while and go back, even after doing it for many years there's a certain newness to it all over again.
