Nice colour on that one David, well done, and nice condition by the looks of it.

David, I remember seeing Return of the Pink Panther at The County in Bridgend as if it was yesterday!
My most recent purchases are 400ft editions of Star Trek The Motion Picture and The Wizard of Oz. I'm also waiting for a trailer for Crimson Tide.

Well Evil under the Sun arrived yesterday from Paul Foster and I looked at the first couple of feet and was pleased to see the original bbfc A certificate classification - I will watch it tomorrow and give some feedback - but I think this film is great with an excellent British and American cast. I know that the print of Return of the Pink Panther has faded colour - but it's such a funny film with great performances from not only Sellers, but Herbert Lom, Burt Kwok, Christopher Plummer etc. It also has some wonderful slapstick set pieces and great one liners and although I have it on DVD - I couldn't pass up the opportunity to own it on 16mm.

Congratulations David, pleased you got a much wanted film, I have a print, colour is lovely too. It is one of the better adaptions that
benefits from a stellar cast that inject some humour into their parts, I'm not a great fan of Agatha Christie, but buy these things for the "better half".

Hi Hugh,

Well I knew my wife wouldn't have begrudged my purchase of Evil under the Sun as she enjoys this film - she likes the interchanges between Maggie Smith and Diana Rigg and I have to say these pictures are played reasonably tongue in cheek - so I'm looking forward to a favourable screening.

I mentioned this before but Paul Browning wasn't a member then: Movie Maker ran a test to see how long a loop of film could run before it started to disintegrate: Noris came first, with Eumig second, I think this was just before I bought my Eumig in 1975.

Not sure here Robert, is it good news or bad ?, either way though its work in progress for me. Can remember which movie maker number it was.

No, sorry Paul; I believe they left the loops running over a weekend. I saw a Eumig in a photographer's shop window, and bought it on the strength of the reviews in Movie maker. unfortunately I only kept the last issue of Movie Maker. You should have a good projector there Paul, let us know how you get on with it.

I just realised that perhaps my post wasn't clear Paul, but it was to say that the film ran a bit longer on the Noris before the sprocket holes showed signs of wear. Eumig was placed second.

Ok Robert, thanks for that clarity. I checked with some old mags as to the new price of this, £500 + from the widescreen add, so on par with the top priced machines.It was completely dead, just the lamps came on that was it. It has a very simple film path that looks uncluttered to me, came with original box, instructions and mains lead.

They are a nice machine apparently Paul. They somehow manage to squeeze a similar luminosity output from an A1 231 12v 100w lamp as many of the better machines do from a 150w equivalent. All to do with the fast pull down claw again I believe.
Top lenses used again here on these also helps bring about the excellent image quality and brilliance associated with these projectors.
Another nice German machine by all accounts Paul.
Enjoy!

Great find Vidar! I only own one Marketing Film print but the color has held up pretty good on it. I've seen "Black Sunday" and I like that one!

Turns out, not so great. I thought I bought the 400' digests, but they are Chinatown Part 1 of 3 and Black Sunday Part 2 of 3

What a downer. Colours were good though. Now I got 3 Marketing incompletes, as I already had Saturday Night Fever Part 2 also

Never mind Vidar, there must be literally hundreds of odd reels floating about, put them to one side, have a look at Barry's lists at
Indy 8, he has a lot of clobber to sift through, if I see any odd reels to these films, I'll certainly let you know.

Bought one from from Burt at the super 8 whorehouse, not the sort of film i would normally purchase but something stands out with this one.
It's the 400ft b/w Charlie Chaplin film The Adventurer, & what stood out for me was that this is the sound addition with music and sound effects.
Going back many many years this was one of my Brothers first ever films, he has the Walton 50ft b/w silent version. I am not a great fan of the silent cinema but of course Chaplin was one of the greats & the Adventurer is one of the classics, Quality is superb, almost like a new print. I will pop some images up when i do a review.
