Many years back when I was dabbling in 16mm I had a flat print of "Soldier Blue", I believe it must have been a TV print, many of the violent scenes were cut, it was great colour, but there was little or no attempt at 'Panning & Scanning' the Panavision master, I remember vividly that there is a scene where Candice Bergen is standing in a river talking to Peter Fonda, and as the lab had set it for the middle of the picture both actors were sliced in two, you've got to love those TV prints!

I have a similar print Barry, but the actor and actress are sitting in a car, you can hear them, but the camera is fixed on the gap in the seats. Then again, I prefer that to seeing the actors heads bouncing off the edges of the screen, as in the 'ol shaky cam.

I have just two westerns as such, Pale rider, and once upon a time in the west, one is optical sound, the other is acetate magnetic sound in scope, looks great in scope.

I have "Pale Rider" too Paul, I'll bet the 'scope "Once Upon A Time" looks nice, have a full feature of it in 16mm but flat.

I'LL GET SOME SHOTS FOR YOU GUYS, I JUST COULDN'T BELEIVE BRONSON GOT SHOT IN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES, CLINT IS JUST GREAT IN PALE RIDER, BUT BETTER IN THE SPAGETTI
WESTERNS, I' M GLAD JAMES COBURN DIDN'T DO THEM, PRICED HIMSELF OUT OF THE MOST MEMORABLE POST HOLLYWOOD COWBOY FILMS EVER.

James Coburn as you probably know Paul was considered for "Fistful of Dollars", he made a few, I have his "A Reason To Live, A Reason T Die " & "A Fistful of Dynamite" on 16mm, both great colour.

Remember on Phoenix Nights, when they were putting up those plastic letters on the cinema what's on next week, and it was a Clint film but the kid doing it never left a gap between the L and the I, you do the math.

Steve,

You're right of course it was Peter Strauss, I'd had a long day (my exscuse!). It was a cracking print colour and definition wise, but there were too many cuts, and the panning issues led me to sell it on, I've seen advertised a scope print once on 16mm, so that must be uncut (I'm asumming, anyway!), I wonder what those prints were like.

Don't feel bad Barry, I confused my favourite composer Morricone with Bacalov.

I would have liked a digest or full feature, of William Castle's 'The Homicidal', often referred to as the poor man's 'Psycho', with it's fright break, and obvious Norman character in this case Warren, played by Jean Arless aka Joan Marshall, it's still a good watch in my opinion, like Hitchcock's 'An Unlocked Window' it's main character is a transvestite psychopath, OK Castle's is more tongue in cheek, not meaning to be, but nevertheless the fright break gimmick is I think done to good effect, should we go into the old dark house, what horror awaits us inside, the clock is ticking down, you can leave this theatre now and sit in cowards corner, right in we go, to the grand finale Helga coming down the stair lift in her wheelchair, you see her shadow on the the wall, the lift suddenly jolts and stops, for a split second Helga is just sat there, then her head topples off and bounces down the remaining stairs, then the climax of the film is very much like the cellar scene in the climax of Psycho. I always enjoy a William Castle film, the master of... well you can make your own mind up about that.

My 16mm scope print of Soldier Blue at least has the rape scene, I assume that's what would have been cut first? I'd love to find a 5-10 minute opening of this to make it more complete.

My wish would be:

Super 8
About 5 Disney's I never bought.
T1 T2 Commando
Time Machine
And quite a few others not just the later releases, but from the likes of Walton, PM Films, Powell, Iver, and some of the America releases, oh and some Marketing features.

Any Bond up till Dalton's last. Clint's Dollars, HELL let's just say every film made on film

All to be shown on my perfect screen massive size with all gauges from 8 to 70mm Sat in my comfy recliner chair.

I had a Red Fox print of The Time Machine once David. Stunning colour and beautiful print, just had a bit of that odd liquid bubble malarkey from the negative run you see now and again at the beginning of reels.

Otherwise, it was a gorgeous print.

Was that the Rod Taylor film Andrew; I always liked Rod Taylor, but they don't come up on TV these days.

It was Robert. Great great film with the fabulous acting skills of Rod Taylor.
Hard to come by these days though.

He also did the voice of Roger in 101 Dalmatians.

Watched quite a few films with Rod staring in them. Underrated actor, he seemed to enjoy his work. 101 Dalmatians is in my collection.

Rod Taylor was in an episode of Tales of the Unexpected, called The Hitchhiker with Cyril Crusack as the Irish hitchhiker.
