June Palmer as Calamity June (Original)

Thanks to JAS, who sent through this brilliant scan of June from the box image of the 8mm cine film of ‘Calamity June’. This was by Arthur Howell under the Strobe Films banner and was Strobe Films No.1 and the colour 8mm version. JAS also sent through a complete scan of the box as well, but it needs some tidying up, so will post that later, but I wanted to share the image now. A superb shot of Junr in cowboy hat and gun holster, but be careful you don’t shoot too soon 😉

June Palmer – Original ‘Calamity June’ 16mm Film Scan

And now for something completely different and original!  A scan of an original piece of the colour 16mm film ‘Calamity June’. 

The first thing I noticed was it was in colour, as the copy of ‘Calamity June’ I have is black and white!  This was from a reel of offcuts and out-takes from Arthur Howell, provided to a contact of mine John*, who had hoped there would be enough to make his own version of the film, but sadly there wasn’t. At least there are some nice stills to share.
Arthur told John he had sold the 16mm colour originals of his films to George Harrison Marks, so who knows where they are today, but a 16mm copy, surfaced on Australian eBay a few years ago and went for about £5000!
