Last on super 8 a couple of Gaumount British news reels, and the Blackhawk print of Busy Bodies. I have the Walton version so will compare them. Also got a few film posters for the wall, when it gets finished.


I still love the smell of film in the morning

At a film meeting today, Film messen, I picked up some 400's. The Omen, The Omen II, Logans Run, The Midnight Express and one I have wanted, Silent Running. Also a bag from a friend with loads of 200's and 50's mix

I received the 400ft Derann release of the Titfield Thunderbolt from Phil at Classic earlier in the week. I picked up a copy of this at the BFCC earlier in April but it was on Kodak SP and had gone rather sepia. It also had the original artwork pasted onto a plastic box showing the cartoon train.

The one I got this week was in a generic Derann box with the name of the film on the side. It made me wonder whether it was a later release. So I took the film out of the box and had a look, and lo and behold it's on LPP. I've had a quick look and the colours are all there - it looks a very clean, not projected very often print. Barry Attwood told me that he'd once seen one of the 4 x 400ft release on LPP so they are out there.

I'll be watching it tonight before True Lies (sorry, but I have been selling my older faded prints on ebay and have been saving up for it).

Dang Vidar! You hit the jackpot didn't you? Some very sought out digests indeed! Congratulations!

I had a bit of help from a good friend in America and managed to obtain a beautiful print of the Universal horror "The Mummy's Hand",
which I was very glad to add to the Mummy collection, although the rest are S/8, this being 16mm, its fitting, it was the start of the
Kharis series, many thanks Douglas, couldn't have done it without you. Also took in "The Human Monster" AKA "Dark Eyes of London" 16mm, with Bela Lugosi and the Norwegian beauty Greta Gynt, a very brutal film concerning drowning people in tanks etc , insurance swindles and duping of the blind. Bela has never been more terrifying. I used to have the 400' from Niles and the 4x400' feature, but this eclipses both for print & clear sound. Two creaky old classics that still pack a punch today.

Good shout Hugh, I have yet to get hold of a good hammer horror that I fancy, I always liked the original Dracula but this one ,(quite rightly) fetched real high dosh these days so I'd prefer to spend that sort of cash of one of the more modern films I'm after.

I am just awaiting a couple of diddy films from CHC, Movietone news Academy Awards special, a rare Pathe pic with the Dam Busters movie opening and a couple of trailers, Sleepy Hollow and an odd reel with The king & I and Who Dares Wins, I 've actually bought it purely for who dares wins.

These two arrived in the mail today. Three for breakfast is not in its original box as this is a color sound movie. Looking at it with my bare eyes the color looks great!

Clock cleaners is one of my favorites. I have it shortened down on the "Mickey and his Pals" on 400' with four other shortened episodes. Finally I have it separately. The colors seems to be not as good as the other as it is a bit more red, but still quite nice.

My projector is at my cabin, and as I have days off on both Thursday and Friday we go to the cabin tomorrow. Can't wait to watch them. They arrive with a good timing as it is my son's birthday tomorrow. We will watch them with loads of popcorn (sorry Hugh for the snack choice ;-))

haha. Never noticed this. I'll check when we watch it (probably tomorrow).

I love the full versions of old Disney's! Remember the reel with several full length Disney's, including the Mickey's Trailer, that was put together on a 600 that I bought from you, Vidar'? I have bought some empty reels now, and with the help of my new shiny rewinders I will cut them back to individual reels.

I too split up mine. 50' is a lot of work for three minutes, but still like them individual

I hope you and your son have a fab day together Eivind on his Birthday!

Most of the compilation reels are heavily cut so where possible, which is in many cases, the originals offer the very best solution for offering these toons in full as individual offerings.

I've seen one or two individual offerings of "Plutos Christmas Tree" recently, but taken from the 400ft WDHM compilation film ..."A Walt Disney Christmas".
While still very entertaining, I can't help feeling the film would have been best left uncut as was originally released by WDHM as it is incomplete and is far shorter than the actual full short that was released by more than one company.

Just my own personal view on these, that's all.

Should we move this topic to General Film Talk? As I seem to post my 16mm buys here too. My latest 16mm buy is one of my favorite films, Peggy Sue Got Married. A warm and humorous film, with slight sadness. Well acted, nice photo and some nice comments. One of Jim Carrey's earlier films too. Nicholas Cage from a time he was really good. Kathleen Turner looks really nice and I always loved Catherine Hicks. Posting pictures later, might see it today. Thank you David Guest

It is a nice film Vidar, a gentler "Back to the Future" type of film, I'm sure its on TV over here this week. Dave has some great films
for sale, in fact if he could put up some titles he has for sale, I'm sure they'd fly.

It's a very good cut down David. I got one finally a year or so ago from Barry here. Not one you see come up too often these days, so well done again here David.

Just ordered up a couple of shorts,(still on the hunt for those elusive feature titles),
Managed to pick up the 400ft version of one eyed jacks,(would prefer the 3 x 400 but its quite rare in any length),
Also took a chance on Hitler s rise and fall.
Also scrooge 400ft edition.
All to keep me out of trouble

Received the 3x400 "Wanted" from UFA, a film I already own in the Italian 4x200 from Fotocinedizioni, with better colour,
also the 2x400 "A Reason to Live, A Reason to Die" , another I have on 16mm and "Nacht Der Vampire", another 2x400, in my
collection as "Shadow of the Werewolf" from Walton, although there's was B/w.

Hi Tom, I trawl basically all ebay sites, one that is foremost in my mind is Peter Pan for Andrew, and Virgin Witch for another member, Dave Skillern, it's surprising what turns up, now no doubt "One Eyed Jacks" for you. What if its foreign sound ?

Wenn Sie hier auf Links zu eBay klicken und einen Kauf tätigen, kann dies dazu führen, dass diese Website eine Provision erhält.

Call me stupid, i only ever log into ebay.co.uk, should i be using .com?
