  1. Another shot of Klaw after he 'moved up' in size. Selection from Klaw artist's book by D.D.Teoli Jr. A.C.
  2. Irving Klaw was the Pinup King and Bettie Page (sitting) was the Pinup Queen...of the 1950's. Selection from Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Burlesque & Stripper Archive
  3. Found this on another forum about this subject. Maybe of use if some of you use guns as props. Here’s How a Prop Gun Using Blanks Can Still Fire a Fatal ShotExplainer: the rules for shooting on film setsManagement of firearms and other weapons in productionsSet Safety 101: Replica and Prop Firearms Movie Gun Services LLC New York's #1 provider of LIVE blank-fire firearms, Exotic Weapons for TV, Film & Print www.moviegunservices.com
  4. Greg... '...accountability lies with the First Assistant Director, the Prop Master and/or the Armorer.' Standards seem to have gone to hell in many areas of work. Could be lax safety. Someone said maybe Baldwin was supposed to shoot in the direction of the camera. Dunno. Or maybe Baldwin was joking around playing bang-bang. I read 2 people were injured. Maybe he had a machine gun. Time will tell when the facts come out. 'Another senseless death on a movie set...' Are there many deaths on movie sets Greg?
  5. I'd take all the films, but too far away. If you had more time and posted your offer at the 16mmfilmtalk.com forum, someone might take them.
  6. Is the 105 printing Nikkor similar to the 105 El Nikkor enlarging lens?
  7. In the hot, humid weather it must have been something. Wiki: A widow was supposed to wear mourning for two years, and was not supposed to enter society for 12 months. No lady or gentleman in mourning was supposed to attend social events while in deep mourning. In general, servants wore black armbands when there had been a death in the household.

  9. Does the B roll mimic the main camera as far as framing and is just shot from another angle. Or can the B roll be a wide shot of the whole scene? It is my understanding that wide shots are called Master shots.
  10. https://ia801400.us.archive.org/28/items/mayfair-theatre-sally-the-shape-burlesk-1965-66-d.-d.-teoli-jr.-a.-c./Mayfair Theatre Sally the Shape Burlesk 1965-66 D.D.Teoli Jr. A.C..jpg Cinema Treasures Impressive site. I was researching an old Mayfair Theatre burlesque ad. They had a Mayfair in OH that ran burlesque, but didn't find one in NYC. Still, they got a huge list of current and extinct theatres there.
  11. Just an update on the masks... I recently tried some made in the USA masks. (Amershield, Life Care) as well as Equate. (Walmart) The USA models said 'made in USA with imported components' or some such thing. Guess what...they are using the same unbreathable Chinese fabric in the made in the USA models. Now they didn't say China on the boxes for the fabric, but that is my conclusion. And none of that really matters, the fabric could come from India or Timbuktu, the unbreathable part is what matters.
  12. Besides underground films, in the film Archive I go lots of old home 16mm movies. It is fascinating stuff. Wedding Sampler 1950s D.D.Teoli Jr. A C. : D.D.Teoli Jr. A.C. : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive Not so with the VHS Archive. Can't find much VHS home movies on eBay to buy. I gather eBay does not like people selling used prerecorded video tapes due to copyright. I was wondering if they lumped all home VHS recordings in that category. I asked on the eBay forum about it. I got lots of replies, but nothing addressing my question. But I did find out being an archivist is creepy business! ...or maybe you could classify me as a creepy fossil?
  13. Can you use 2 pair of needle nose on each side and with the help of another person to unscrew? What about screwing an adapter ring onto it to extend it and use permanent Loctite on the threads. Let it harden and maybe you can unscrew it that way from the extension ring. They make pliers for expanding chain links for electrical lightning. You may see if you can find one of that style that fits from the inner ring to unscrew. It expands instead of compressing. Good luck!
  14. Thanks Dan, didn't know they made ultrasonic cleaners for film. Some of this archival film is filthy, filthy. Even has bug cocoons on it. Edwal Film Cleaner is a fast drying cleaner. Looks like it would dry the film out. Fast drying cleaners don't do that great for hand cleaning. If you go over them with a slow drying film lubricant or cleaner it takes off more dirt. But Edwal is good for fast work as in 'better than nothing.'
  15. Something you don't see much of nowadays...a VHS Videotape Duplicator from 1987. (Press Photo) Do you think they saved any for museums or were they mostly scrapped? What type of VCR's did they use in the duplicator bank? How big a bank they could make? .
  16. Selection from Press Photography M.D. D.D.Teoli Jr. A.C. https://archive.org/download/press-photo-womens-worker-lunch-hour-over-1942-d.-d.-teoli-jr.-a.-c-2/Press photo women's worker lunch hour over 1942 D.D.Teoli Jr. A.C (2).jpg Before Photoshop, opaque was used to drop out the background or for retouching. Opaque came in red, black or white. The paper image was marked up with some opaque notes and the final opaqueing was done on the litho film after the process camera shot the screened halftone before plate burning. Photograph: eBay and used under the auspices of Fair Use. Photographer: Unknown
  17. I think the rubber fetish is more of a U.K. thing, but I may be wrong, so just guessing. VHS Rubberist 1988 Clip No. 1 D. D. Teoli Jr. A. C. : D. D. Teoli Jr. A. C. : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive I don't understand the love for rubber. Looks uncomfortable to wear. But I don't judge...I just archive. As I wrote before, once prejudice enters the archival field you are not doing a good job. I have a small collection of rubberist material, but I've never seen them pump someone dressed in rubber up like a balloon before. Might be something interesting to work into your next movie.
  18. Press photo 1984 National Video If you got any decent photo/s of video stores or related ephemera you want to share with my VHS / Betamax Archive let me know. Scans are fine, 600 dpi minimum, 800 dpi preferred. Will be glad to give you credit for provenance. Or not, if you don't want to be associated with my Archive and are just interested in contributing to the historical record. Photos must be decent res and quality unless very rare subject matter. Surprisingly not many people took photos of the video stores in the early days and related ephemera. I'm also looking for early catalogs from Magnetic Video Corp. They were the first distributors of 'watch at home' videotapes. Will buy physical catalogs / ephemera or Hi Q 600 dpi - 800 dpi scans (Lower dpi is OK for donation.) Verso:
  19. Sure, I'm happy to have found it to share with the group. If you don't want to scan them, ship to me and I will scan and send back to you. But run the content scope by me first. BUT...I cut the binding off and run through a sheetfed scanner. So a fraction is cut off on the bound edge. You can buy an Epson sheetfed scanner if you don't have one. You can easily scan tens of thousands of scans a year. Only problem with sheetfed scanners are lines. But you can reduce lines 90% with good prep work.

  20. Ted Nelson's Junk Mail Cartons : Free Texts : Free Download, Borrow and Streaming : Internet Archive Sift through it as it is a mix. But lots of good cine' stuff in the collection.

You must download to see them in sequential order. If someone wants to make a PDF of my scans go ahead, upload to I.A. and put your name on it for PDF and my name on it for scans. If PDF it is low res, only use your name on PDF.
