4x400' with a lot of stripes, but still was a good watch

Good find Vidar! I remember seeing this one for sale in the film catalogs back in the day and always desired the title. Happy to see you're the proud owner of a print now

From Barry, if I remember correctly. When ordering a lot at the same time, the age shows the signs of forgetfulness

It may have some stripes but obviously was a well-loved print! I'm not surprised with a title such as that. That goes nicely with the print of "King Kong" that you acquired some time ago. Thank you for the screenshots Vidar! It makes me want to see the entire feature at some point, but only if I can see it on reel film!

Guys its not "stripes" but "scratches". This print is therefore damaged.

Does the stuff FilmGuard not have any effect Vidar? I know that in the old days, a wipe with 2.22 would have made them vanish,
purely by refraction. Made in 1949, it got an award shared by Willis & Ray, although animation techniques have moved into the
computer age, it now needs an army of names to do what was essentially a one man job, now we have technicians responsible for eye movement, another for a limb, someone else does a tail etc, its no wonder the credits go on forever at the end of modern films.

It's great on making base scratched films apparently, to the eyes, disappear, but of course it can do nothing to cover up emulsion scratches.

If anything, it makes these even more prevalent by cleaning the scratch.
By that I mean, I have had films sent me where the previous owner has stated that a film contains only one or two minor thin black hair lines to the right hand extreme edge of the picture, the reality is, once cleaned thoroughly with filmguard, the thin black line turns bright green!

Then you think to yourself, why did I clean that film? It looked better with a few minor dirt spots and speckles here and there prior to cleaning it as well as filmguard does!

I find its only once a film has been cleaned using filmguard, that you can fairly judge it's true condition. It's alarming what it can reveal but then also what it can cover up when there are no deep emulsion side scratches.

Have only run it once, not cleaned yet. Might give it a try

Thanks

Aye guys its the emulsion ones that are the buggers.
I hate seeing green emulsion scratches on any print. In particular if its
dead centre of the frame. I cant block it out the same way as i can if its on
the right or left side of the image.

Dave, 2.22, Christ I am a bore, but it did the job, that print would be nearly pristine!
