  • HUSTLING FOR HEALTH - Very rare 1918 Stan Laurel comedy by the Rolin Film Company. After missing his train, Stan Laurel meets a Good Samaritan who invites him back to his home for rest and relaxation.

    This was a lost title until I discovered an old mint condition original 1942 16mm print in a well preserved old film collection. It h
    as a very special unique sound track I made in 1990 of syncronized period music and sound effects (better than the music tracks added to the dupe quality prints on YouTube). I had only about 12 prints made up at Perry's Movies in England in super-8 from the original 16mm print. The prints are brand new on Eastman pre-striped black and white acetate film stock, about 225' on a 400' reel in a special box I designed for this and another film. Runs over 15 minutes at 18 frames per second speed setting. Image quality is outstanding! Only one Mint print is available - $149

Starting in 1915 as an apprentice operator in the Govan Cinema Glasgow, he was quickly promoted and in 1924 was managing the Savoy Cinema in Edinburgh. In 1929 he was manager of the Ritz, Edinburgh when it opened with the newly-arrived talkies. During a career which took him to Stirling, and then in the forties to Inverness, where the Playhouse Cinema became his great passion, he was continuously involved with the ever challenging technical aspects of the cinema and made local centered newsreels so locals could come to the Playhouse and see themselves on the screen. Despite some illness, two eye operations and a disastrous fire which destroyed the Playhouse, James Nairn continued to display the energy, interest and spirit of a man many years his junior. Using everything from historical footage to contemporary interviews, MOVIEMAN takes an affectionate look at a man in love with his work and with the public he served.
