RE: What are your most recent film purchases?

Received a box of still-sealed prints today from Nigel Higgins via eBay, of interest to me were 11 Spanish dubbed Terrytoons all in their original Viacom boxes (with some duplicate titles). Unwrapped most of them and popped them on my Elmo editor/viewer, colour-wise most have some degree of fade but a couple I checked seem to be holding up well. Expectedly they seem to be pretty clean prints from inspecting the first few feet, will project a couple tonight shortly.

I believe I should have the original English soundtracks to most of these on video, so in theory could try out re-recording them at some point.

There were some other sealed prints in the lot (mostly Westerns and 3 Grape Ape cartoons), all from Techno Film so presumably Italian soundtracks? Not really interested in these honestly. If anyone here is interested in taking them off me, feel free to send a message, otherwise Ill probably keep them for spare spools or something.

Just arrived yesterday, an absolutely stunning condition print of BROKEN TOYS, a Derann Disney 30s Silly Symphony. No noticable marks or lines, full original leaders and OB. Very charming cartoon with some Hollywood caricatures, including a couple you would consider un-PC nowadays.

Only catch is, as with my LULLABY LAND print from CHC, the soundtrack appears 1 or 2 seconds delayed. Another one for the growing re-record pile.

I bought Tom & Jerry - Fit to Be Tied (1952) a few days back. It is a Derann, and if it close to the only other Tom & Jerry Derann I have, it will be great!

Me too and I agree fully with Tom's verdict on it.

Cat Fishing still remains one of my own ultimate favourites overall though.

All that nailing into Spikes head and then the innocent grin when Tom realizes he is missing the planks altogether that does it for me every time. 😁😁😁

It's so funny when he believes hitting spikes head a further time with a very large hammer to hide his enormous lump on the top of his head, is somehow doing himself any favours!

Donald Duck - Chef Donald (1941). Super 8, 200' color and silent. That is i THINK it is silent. It was bought on eBay, and the seller didn't say if it had sound, but I think it is silent.

This is one of my favorite Donald shorts. Here is the plot: "Donald is listening to a radio cooking program and mixes up a batch of waffles, but he's distracted and uses rubber cement instead of baking powder." That makes quite a bit of fun as he struggles to handle the mix.

Tom...that is great news, you have been looking for that one for a long time. My most recent purchase is from Bert at Super8warehouse. I have bought films from him a couple times now and everything has been great. The shipping will kill you but I try to pick some bargins so the overall total is reasonable. My most recent batch was LOVE AT FIRST BITE 400' (nice clamshell case) UFO (can't remember the episode title but nice clamshell case) LAST TRAIN FROM GUN HILL (this was sealed and cheap so I took a chance but it is red) 1938 and 1939 Castle Newsreels (perfect boxes) and Tex Avery's MIXED UP PUP.....I have so many films piled up I should be downstairs right now watching some!

Still, it's one you have been after. If a 16mm copy does come along, then you could probably find a seller for this as it appears to be rare.

i'm going to be a good boy with this print Robert, its taken me years to find one. i was scilly enough to turn one down around 4/5 years ago so this will be a keeper no matter what. Besides, another fellow collector found this one for me so i would never dis-respect that person by selling it. this one will be a 100% keeper.
A full review will be put up here after first proud viewing.

My latest purchase, "King Creole" (1958). This one was for my wife as she is infatuated with Elvis; we have an entire room in our house that is dedicated to him and decorated like Graceland.

The auction description was "Elvis presley King Creole 16mm feature. Comes on 2 1600ft reels. Never viewed. Estate find. Very good condition. No returns." That was it. No photos except of the two reels. Now, This is one time where I did deliberate on bidding due to the lack of information and that two 1600ft reels seemed too short for this movie. Without getting a reply from the seller, I bid anyway and won. Only bidder.

The film arrived yesterday and my wife opened the package as I had already left for work. She couldn't tell if it was the movie we bid on. Upon arriving home in the afternoon I set forth to examine the print. It arrived as a mess! both reels at one time were taped closed, but the tape was so old that it disintegrated and the film was strewn about the box (no cans). I picked up one reel (#2) and as best as I could wound the film back on. This was a 2000 foot reel; some relief, but it was VERY full, likely over 2000ft. I examined the beginning of the reel and found a scene I am familiar with. Reel 2 = good to go for now.

I then went to the other reel, hoping it is reel 1. I don't have rewinds so I brought out one of my projectors to spool this back onto the reel as it arrived backwards! This also was strewn about the box. Once I had the film back onto the reel I noticed that over 2000ft of film was overflowing on a 1600ft reel. Somewhat relieved that the footage is more than I anticipated by the listing. I found a spare 2000ft reel and set to correctly rewinding the reel. I found Elvis and realized that I had the first part of the movie. I found Scotch tape on the print and deduced it was to hold the overflowing film in place on the reel. I removed it.

While work was involved just to see what I got, I am more relived the listing was incorrect in regard to reel sizing. It now has a home to give it TLC.
