Don Friggin' Knotts is The Reluctant Astronaut in this 16mm IB Tech trailer transferred from my own archive print using my Eiki Telecine. The Eiki has a 6 Blade Shutter that projects a 24fps print at 30 frames per second for a flickerless NTSC transfer. A special diffusion plate eliminates the 'hot spot' of the projector, and the sound is pulled right from the optical track.

    Reminds me of the movie Rocketman with Harlan Williams.

    Huh? Before I had cable as a kid, the local stations played everything that wasn't copyrighted. I don't remember this, but my kid self would've known the movie.

    It was a great movie when I was a Kid. I'm 65 now and still love it.

    The Ghost and Mr Chicken was better.

    Your opening sequence with the Griswold splicer, and the (probably) Moviola rewinds brought back some wonderful memories. And a very nice transfer it is, too.

    Damn, that spacecraft's more spacious than a Crew Dragon.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Ditto says:

    I think of this movie now and then. I remember as a kid thinking someday, somehow, I would be in a position where I would save the day by knowing that when I see Hawaii out the window I should fire the retro-rockets.
