On Saturday Susan (my wife) and I went up to visit with Steve Osborne of The Reel Image. Steve's friend Terry arrived and we enjoyed a pleasant afternoon of films and film talk. Steve prepared a nice sampler reel (Super-8) which included everything from cartoons (Bugs Bunny,Donald Duck) to adverts to (my personal favorite) the opening sequence from the Bond flick "Die Another Day". After the sampler reel we watched the digest of "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Steve has a very nice screening room in his basement and refreshments were served (delicious popcorn!) After we chatted for awhile about film matters some very nice film deals were struck. I picked up the following: "The Hindenburg" (Mounted on a 600' reel), "The Wild Geese" (1200' reel,super pleased to find this one!) "The Reluctant Astronaut" (200' B & W Sound from Castle Films),"UFO:Cat With Nine Lives" (400' version), "Patton" (400',still sealed with the original price tag!),"Born Free" (400' version) and assorted film supplies (Super-8 & 16mm reels,splicing tapes,etc.) Steve and Terry are two of the nicest folks you'll ever meet so the combination of fun films,great refreshments and good company made for a very enjoyable visit!
