I mentioned a few weeks back that Colin from Cine Films 2 DVD was sending some glamour films from GHM and I posted the Rusty Gaynor film that he converted and sent. Well since then I’ve decided to expand my collection and start buying and collecting a few 8mm and 16mm glamour films by Harrison Marks and others.
My first experiment in this was I came across a couple of 400ft 8mm films on eBay featuring 4 GHM films. The first reel featured Maid to Satisfy and Amorous Masseur, the second reel included The Casting Couch and Cous-Cous. The second reel of film jumped out at me because it features two films with two of my favourite models, Angela Duncan in The Casting Couch and obviously Sylvia Bayo in Cous-Cous. So I took a risk and bid on the films and won them and they quickly turned up and to my untrained eye looked to be OK, but you never can tell with old 8mm films as to what the quality is like or even if they are the actual films!
So now it was time to use Colin and his service to convert the films to digital, so off they were sent last week and I awaited in anticipation. Well the files arrived in my inbox yesterday and thankfully they were the films advertised and they were complete, phew! As to the conversion, well I’m happy with the files considering I’ve not seen digital versions of these available anywhere else. For old films over 50 years old they were dirty and did have marks and lines appearing during the conversion, but to be honest the quality of the films is still very good and at a good size conversion rate, allowing me to make smaller versions for online.
So now I have a digital copies of Maid to Satisfy, Amorous Masseur, The Casting Couch and Cous-Cous 🙂 I still need to convert them for the site, but looking through the films I do love Cous-Cous and captured a few screen shots directly from the file to tease you with. It of course features Sylvia Bayo, but also includes Tara Lynn, Sue Roberts, Jenny Lane (short hair) and Virginia Jones. So look out as Cous-Cous is coming!
Finally a big thank you to Colin for the conversions and I would highly recommend his service if you need your own cine films converting. Now I just need to decide what to do with the original films as I no longer need them with digital copies, maybe resell them to fund some more film purchases!
