    Also projected my Super 8 home movie film of the Dutch 9.5 International Film Fest. I filmed this with a Pathescope S8 cine camera by the way which the Dutch had never seen before. Wonderful time.

      • Iver double album "The Slipper and the Rose". Either a fairytale looking at the world through rose tinted spectacles of a faded Eastmancolor print, I'm sure you can guess which. :-)

        • James Bond : Never Say Never Again. A good scope version (Derann ?). The film has a soundtrack in French which is fantastic for me. Had a good Time. For some not cine related technical reasons, not easy for me to project those last weeks but I hope this will change soon.

          • If it was 2x600ft it was the Derann Never Say Never Again. It was at first only available to their film club members (as bid to boost membership?) and later to general buyers. I'll have to watch my copy over the weekend.
            I also hope those reasons you mention will change for you.

            • Thanks Brian, I hope so, too.

              My film is mounted on two 800 ft but they are not full so it may be the Derann version (it's Derann level, anyway). I got it from a French collector who sold his collection some years ago because he was going blind (I met him in Paris to collect the film and his sight was, sadly, already well affect├ęs). We should all enjoy every moment while we can.

              • This evening, my lock down show consisted of the following....

                Taxi Driver - 1x 400'

                The Battle of The River Plate - 4x 400'

                Ironically, The Battle was also shown on British television earlier today but I missed it.

                  I caught the start of it on TV it was a very good HD transfer, but the good weather got the better of me and I went out into the garden.....

                    Fantasia 2000

                    -all the way from one end to the other, through my sound system: feeling the music!

                    If there were knicknacks on top of my speakers, there aren't now!

                    I've discovered something about myself: I'm pretty monogamous except when it comes to films, I keep catching myself saying this print or that print is my favorite.

                    Well...
                    until at least this time tomorrow night, THIS is my favorite! (May take longer than that too...)

                          • Great trailers that have maintained they're colors!

                            I warched my most recent cartoon aquisitions ...

                            "Betty Boops Museum" 1932 (really REALLY good, surpringly, as it is a Niles print)
                            "Hen Pecked Duck" Warner Brothers 1942 in it's original black and white!

                            I really like it when I can find these original non colorized Warner cartoons from the early 40's! Looney Tunes were still being done in black and white until late in 1942, with the title "The Hep Cat," and being that they were done with black and white in mind, the great use of grey tones really stands our if it is a very good print, and this one is!

                            • Yes Osi. Scars of Dracula had Movie Magnetic colour treatment pretty much back to how I remember it.

                              Talking of Betty Boop. She's the mainstay of many a uk collector on film quite amazing animation for the 30s.

                              • Hitchcocks masterpiece SPELLBOUND on the big screen. Still one of the best thrillers and an amazing cast!
