Just recieved the 400ft U8 version of Bride of Frankenstein, this now goes well with our invisible man and Frankenstein.
All i need now is the Wolfman. We did have Dracula but i was dissapointed with it in both content and the quality of the first 200ft.

Wow!! A really fantastic set of trailers to add to the mix! Definitely worth the flashing emoji!

Here are three films I bought on Monday. All 3D films. I took a quick glance at the Creature From the Black Lagoon without a projector, and it is some blue left. I look forward to test them. I got several pairs of glasses to all three.

I've just had The Mad Magician 400' 3D, no idea what the colour is like, had a few different ones over the years and unless the colour is good it doesn't work. Hope yours is good Eivind :-).

Very nice find Eivind. As a small boy in the 50s I saw a 3D film; don't remember what it was but couldn't get used to wearing glasses for 90 mins to 2 hours. I know my parents saw 'Bwana Devil' (1952) which I think was the first film in 3D.

Even modern 3D films which is working much better is no fun for 90 minutes in my opinion. I get tired in my head. I much prefer a shorter digest :-)

Modern films in 3D at the cinema just make my head/eyes hurt...not worth it, but these older titles on film are interesting they work with the old school 3D glasses?

Yes, they need old style two-color glasses. Blue and red or green and red, depending on the film. To make modern type 3D in full color, you need two projectors and polarized lenses. With two colors, you get funny colors, but you can use a regular projector. With two colors, you can also tilt your head without running into problems. With polarized glasses, you need to hold your head straight as the direction of the polarization should be 90 degrees to each other between the glasses.

Tom mentioned the state of those plastic clamshell cases. Those like from Derann were not very strong and broke fairly quick on the spine. Walton and Universal 8 were better cases, more like those you could buy with empty reels in them. Those Columbia while stronger were much too large. Say all that I mount longer titles on large reels anyway so the boxes were an unwanted extra cost on the releases.


I still love the smell of film in the morning

I don't like those clamshell cases; one accidentally fell off a pile of films and broke. They are also oversize.

Made my first film purchase in quite a while. Eagerly awaiting a 16mm print of Bram Stoker's Count Dracula (1970) on 16mm. This is one of the "important" movies in my life that has stuck with me, so I can tolerate fading. I can't wait to give it look.

Well done Don; I know the feeling, when you have waited 40 odd years for that special film.

At least you have it now. I was reading that this version is the most faithful to Bram Stoker's book.

Just got a 16mm print of a rare TV show, 'The Count of Monte Cristo' (1955) starring George Dolenz, father of Mickey Dolenz. I had seen this some time on Ebay, then decided to buy it. I hadn't heard of this series until a couple of years ago, and downloaded all 39 episodes. It was a co-production between the fledgling ITC in England and TPA in America. The first 12 episodes were filmed at the Hal Roach studios, and episodes 13-39 were filmed in England. Added on to the end of the film is the trailer for the 1960 film 'Spartacus'.
