hugh, the long ships was shot in 70mm, so your print will most likely be the same as mine, flat and full frame.
mines on fuji stock dating from 1977 with really good colour.

I bought from my friend Moshe, as he was some weeks ago here in Berlin the Captain America digest. Just watched it last Week. It is a sensational good edited print and the quality is outstanding.

112 (!) cartoons for 102 euros (!!) Granted that most are mute b/w editions, but all in impeccable condition and all in A1 OBs. Given away,paid postage only, still a bargain !!!

I got a nicely edited 600ft Derann print of 'Genevieve'. The sprockets were strained in places but it plays fine and the colour is excellent.

I watched the second reel of "Gladiator", just purchased, a nice sequence, the only fault I have with it, is the very quick cutting,
making the action scenes a bit of a rush, that apart, very good.

Hugh. Was the cutting like the original or just part of the super 8 version. I find modern films are cut too fast anyway.

My latest is The General 3x400ft with of course the great Buster Keaton. I wonder if the sound from the *** will fit to the film.

I got a Dinosaur 2000 trailer and the two Super8mm Gladiator extracts this past week. I am pleased to have found these after searching for a while.

I watched these this morning as Hugh also apparently did!
I will put a few shots here when I get time.

The last things I watched before hospital were a few trailer reels from Paul Foster. This included The Dambusters. I also had a Steel Valley trailer for White Christmas which included the bonus of Santa wishing everyone a Happy Xmas 1957 and a cowboy wishing us all a Happy New Year 1958!

Hi Dave, the editing is the original from "Gladiator", it is much like modern edit, very fast, which to my mind distracts. My recent
titles are, THE SALZBURG CONNECTION, THE HUNTING PARTY, THE LONG SHIPS, SPARTACUS & CHATO'S LAND on 16mm

THE SALZBURG CONNECTION One I was looking at recently. Don't like the modern editing like you say too fast. Proberly because the films are so poor then need to keep you mind off the film.

I think it's because actors can't do more than a second or two of dialogue without fucking up

I never used to not see za film through, no matter how crappy, but a lot of new "films" -I just had to turn off. Who could enjoy Avalanche Sharks, Sharknado is beyond me. Makes Plan 9 look like a masterpiece

Vidar, my son, you just hit the nail on the head, modern film editing, and sound leaves a lot to be desired, hence my love of films
of yore. The modern Disney's as an example are nowhere near the beautiful films made in their halcyon years, just computer generated
stuff today. Hence my respect for long takes of fight scenes, Bruce Lee films are a prime example, no quick cutting, this man knew his trade, As promised, I'll put "Arthur of the Britons" in the mail, you'll enjoy. The sword fights are second to none, One of my workmates made enquiries as to my childhood to a lad of my own age,on the council estate where born, to which he replied, "He was a fuckin' lunatic, he had a bit of wood and clobbered every bugger in reach!" Well all I can say is, the rashness of youth, "SPARTACUS" and "THE VIKINGS" Vidars lot, I was a child of cinema!

one of my most recent purchases was HOLLYWOOD AND THE STARS=THE GREAT DIRECTORS. 16MM. a marvelous film. featuring directors such as Hitchcock, David Lean etc etc with extracts and on the film sets of their films. this was put out by Derann as a 2 reeler some years ago. it was however edited by them with a running time of about 16 minutes. this 16mm print is complete with a run time of approx 28 minutes.. it is of excellent quality/condition.too. i purchased this from David Guest. boy does he have some great films for sale on 16mm. a big thank you anyway David for this one. a lovely title to have in my modest collection.

Vidar, Nt only Sharknado there's 2 & 3, but Henry likes them.

Watched a Ray Harryhousen documentary recently. They just about summed up modern films. No soul in them. Now watch one of the Masters they are works of art, made with a loving care.

Some new films soon I hope.
