Shout at the Devil. Scope, Agfa stock

#1 by Tom Photiou , Fri Sep 04, 2020 8:20 pm

Last night we viewed, (at last) our copy of Shout at the Devil with Lee Marvin and Roger Moore from 1976.

I think this is a great movie, it has everything, action, drama, a touch of romance and comedy and all brilliantly played out by the two stars of the movie.
As always with 16mm, the print itself is sharp, the sound excellent and the colours on this print are also excellent on Agfa stock.
As to be expected there is some base lines and a couple scratches which are not intrusive. They appear are short lived. There are some splices but again, nothing out of the ordinary. The movies action keeps you peeled all the way through. On the scope screen, this one looks terrific. We are very pleased with this title as in the past we only had Iver's 8mm double album which while good, (and scope) was for us, not a satisfactory edit.

Shout at the Devil is a 1976 British war adventure film directed by Peter R. Hunt and starring Lee Marvin and Roger Moore. The film, set in Zanzibar and German East Africa in 1913–1915, is based on a novel by Wilbur Smith which is very loosely inspired by real events (see the sinking of the SMS Königsberg). The supporting cast features Barbara Parkins and Ian Holm.

Thanks Gwyn, a good film for detaching from the real world for a short time. Hes been in so many good films. Dirty dozen is another favourite and point blank.

Thanks, Tom. I have a lovely print of this too which is quite intermittently scratched up but I'm very pleased with it.

My small collection of 16mm films are presumably all ex-library and so have wear, but I actually quite like scratches and blotches because they act as a bit of a time stamp and demonstrate that the films are genuine.

Have this in 16mm too, unfortunately part of one reel is flat. The trailer that Iver released is almost like a cutdown. Love the other one that Roger Moore also made about the same time GOLD. Same producer I think. Again trailer is action packed.


I still love the smell of film in the morning
