Saw a few Disney shorts left on CHC's latest list so grabbed a couple more: WHO KILLED COCK ROBIN and LULLABY LAND. Beautiful colour on both, full original leaders and boxes. ROBIN had a thick black scratch on the far right hand side but otherwise excellent. LULLABY LAND is near-mint, hardly any marks but oddly the audio seems a second or 2 delayed. I ran it twice to make sure I wasn't imagining it.

Would be nice to get a re-record on the latter, can anyone here provide such a service? I can happily provide a DVD copy of this cartoon, if needed, it's a US disc though so NTSC.

As there is little or anything new here today regarding the reasons as to why we all tune in here each day, I thought I would put on a post on my own latest acquisitions from a forum member here and elsewhere.

I received the Derann 4x 600ft Col / Snd feature of Tom Thumb and the Derann 200ft B/W reprinted edition of "Steamboat Willie" just a few days ago now.

i have been through both films now giving them the intial once over and both are in superb shape, S.W is like an "as new" print and I am delighted to add that one to the collection, while Tom Thumb is a beautiful print, extremely colourful throughout and very lush and vibrant contrast on all colours. A really lovely "Red Fox-esque " style print from Derann by the simply brilliant producer George Pal of Time Machine & War Of The Worlds fame also among others.
The print itself has only minimal wear just to the very last part and one or two very minor hairline black lines at the beginning. Otherwise it is a perfect print and the sound on this one is equally outstanding from original to match!

Both prints, I'd highly recommend to any enthusiast.

Well done Andrew; I know Tom Thumb was on TV not that long ago, but I didn't watch it.

You should have done Robert. It's a fantastic classic film with a great storyline and a great cast to match.
Highly recommended.

It's been on TV many many times here over the years but TV is only ever TV c/w adverts etc etc.

It really is a spectacle watching films of this quality up on the big screen as intended.
A beautiful print.

It'll come Robert, along with the rest, time permitting of course.

I always enjoy reading and looking through the reviews from others here but many regular posters of such seemed to have stopped bothering now very sadly.

To me, it is one of the main reasons to have and be able to enjoy a film forum for, but I wonder at times what other collectors see their forums reasons for existence as being.

Quite puzzling at times I have to say.

Maybe we should place a survey here as to the top 10 reasons why we visit any film forum.

Place discussing the merits of digital projection as top of the list!

I think the answer is actually contained in your post, Andrew, when you stated “time permitting of course.” I, for one, only have a limited amount of time to spend regarding the hobby, as there are a lot more important things in my life that take precedence.

Maybe you were posing a rhetorical question regarding what other members see as the reasons for a forum’s existence, but it seems that now this forum is actually humming along quite nicely given Robert’s new role, with new posts and increased activity whenever I have time to pop in. Let’s not revert to those prior times of overanalyzing the purpose of the forum ad nauseum, but let’s simply enjoy the forum, as it now appears to be finally going in the right direction.

Just my two cents 🙂

I've tried to give a detailed review of some of the films I have watched, as these reviews will be here for as long as the forum exists; for the benefit of future members. I have been told that some don't post reviews and screenshots because of the apparent lack of interest from members. Recently I took 38 screenshots and only about 12 were acceptable; it's nice to know that your work and research is appreciated. If no one comments then you wonder 'Why bother?'.

Hello,

Two recent additions: "Cinema in Miniature" with much of the work done by Lee Mannering. Fun to see some of the machines involved in actually creating the prints, applying striping, and recording soundtracks etc. I think this was really well done and am glad to have a copy.


"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" by Max Fleischer in 1948. Great color and nice addition to the Christmas film show! Still looking for a nice low-fade print of the 1964 Rankin-Bass Rudolph TV program, but in the meantime this will work....

Cinema in Miniature is now a very difficult film to find Greg. You did very well indeed finding one of those! 😊😊

Cinema in miniature looks interesting; I went to Perry's Shop years ago, but it had moved, and wasn't the one shown in your screenshot.

Hi,

Just waiting for my latest purchase from Ian O'reilly on 16mm - the late great Christopher Lee in the 1967 Horror thriller - Theatre of Death - Ian says there is some colour fade but perfectly watchable - but as this film doesn't come upi very often - I had to snap it up.

I thought that was a very good price, considering how popular horror films are.

No, thats me Andrew,

My latest and last for a while now is Robin Hood Prince of Thieves on 16mm. This is the flat version but that does not bother me at all, LPP Polyester print to.

Maybe if a copy of The Princess Bride came along,

I won another immaculate set of Gremlins prints recently, my originals did now contain scratches from the errors of my ways from the early days back of being a second time around collector so I was happy to replenish some flaws with none at all now . I still have one or two others in mind in which i will do likewise if I can and would like to be able to stop at no limits to get back all i've had this time around before my steep learning curve came to an abrupt end thankfully!

Anyhow, this time around, and very very sadly once again, I managed to obtain a superb quality set of prints of this title from the relatives of a deceased one time collector, but this time the boxes from original were tatty whether or not the films themselves had or had not ever previously been viewed, of that i really cannot tell. They certainly appear to have never been viewed or only a handful of times at the most would be my own guess.

I have now given both reels brand new, replicated from original boxes and artwork, and pulled them both away from their original aging boxes this really does feel like a totally brand new film from Derann now.
It is like the late 80's / early 90's all over again here after receiving this one. I am really really pleased with these!



It is always sad news indeed to learn that we are now obtaining many a film from a member of the film collecting community who sadly is no longer with us all, it is however a satisfying feeling to know that at least the films fall into the hands of keen collectors who will now no doubt, cherish and treasure them as well as get many more years of enjoyment from them all.
Ultimately, that is all that matters now and is about just the best possible outcome in such circumstances.

I would need to remind myself Vidar, of just how bad it is to begin with. I think reel 2 is ok aside from one small section lasting only a second or two which has one minor emulsion scratch. This section was like this when I first purchased it from Perry's in the early days back. If Reel 2 is as it was when I got it, i will be keeping it for a spare print but if it all has some extra damage, I may well consider off loading it if it would be still in demand damaged? I would just have to wait to see I think and take another look at my original copy.

I don't ever envisage what happened to the original one, ever happening to this one now, but as with anything in life, you just never know for certain i suppose.
