01 - Old frames - Himmelskibet (DK-1918) - Solved

Unread post by twisted_whisper » Tue Aug 15, 2017 8:42 am

Hope this is ok to do.
I did start this topic
Might be better to sort them up in there own small topic. I have 170 frames.

I look at how the frames look and some look very different and some look alike.
So the one that look alike, most somehow be connected to the same film... maybe...I am not saying it is so.

Here is the first one... what film can this be? This is a film I would LOVE to see. I hope this is not a lost film.
I did take photo via the viewer whit my camera in raw and edit it some.
All and all there is 14 in this what I call big Epic sea movie. It seems like a submarine or something , some fight in some frames.
I have not yet edit all 14. I upload here as I do. plus I am not saying I am an expert as edit. It is what it is.
I hope I might get hold of a 35mm scanner, would be great.

Here you can see they do look to be maybe from the same film, if one look at some few of the others.

This fells to me like a submarine, but it might just be lower deck on a boat a guess.

This fells a bit out of place, might be another film.

Might be a parade as the picture above seems like a parade too.

This is from the same place as pic 03 I think.

Court it seems.

The 02 photo and 04 guys is in the same photo here so they are connected anyway.


I am IN LOVE whit this photo, I will print it out. He has the same clothes and the guys in 02 and 07.
Likely , sadly.. I think this girl might die, I think that is her in frame 07

So what u think so far? Any clue? This seems to be a big film. I think this is the most connected frames I can see so far. Rest are like what I can see only 3-4 frames that seems to be from the same film.
It can still be the same print only different copy's of it or tinted for night time etc.
I add the other 5 frames soon.
