  3. Hi Frank, I think you are making a few assumptions here. In 1987 I assisted Ronnie Taylor, BSC on a movie called The Experts.Ronnie who had shared the cinematography Oscar for Gandhi used K35 or Canon lenses as they were referred. Ronnie had his choice of anything and he chose K35 with a BNC mount on Panavision G cameras. Ronnie had used K35 several times and Dick Bush like Ronnie would have had a choice . In the 1980's the choices of Panavision spherical lenses were either super speeds, ultra speeds or Z series nothing great when compared to the late 1980's release of the Primo series. K35 and other older lenses became popular at the same time digital cinematography was growing. During most of the 1950's Panavision was a manufacturer of projection lenses.
  4. This film is a remake of the 1968 Mel Brooks production which is much better. John Bailey was the original cinematographer and had a falling out with the director.
  5. I used the Elaine in 1988 on a series and from an assistants point of view a good camera. It was a mini Panaflex with a slightly less complicated Mitchell movement. It was quite compared to its competitors, easy to reload and assistant friendly. Only 26 were ever produced.

  13. In 1987 I was the 2nd AC for Ronnie on a very forgettable movie starring John Travolta called 'The Experts'. Ronnie was a true gentleman and a talented cinematographer who had many stories about his career. He had saved the call sheet from the funeral procession scene in Gandhi which was one of his first days after taking over from the ailing Billy Williams. The scene was shot in one day with 4 operated cameras and a lock off and 500,000 extras !
