Deleted Scenes from Films that ended up in Other Films or TV shows Archive List
Time

110 hours of aerial footage was shot for Battle of Britain (1969), of which only 40 minutes appeared in the film. The unused footage still shows up regularly in TV Shows and movies about the period because today it costs more than $10,000 an hour to rent a real Spitfire for a film, so licensing the footage is usually much cheaper. Also, the production had 32 flying German Heinkel 111 bombers to play with (on loan from the Spanish Air Force at the time), but today there are none - The one featured in Dunkirk (2017) was a scale model. Here is a list of films and TV Shows (that I know of) which used some of the footage shot in the summer of '68 for Battle of Britain - but there are probably more!

• 1971- Dad s Army - Film spin off of the popular television series
• 1972 - The Pathfinders - ITV television drama series based on the exploits of Bombers Command’s Pathfinder Force
• 1972 - Our Miss Fred - Film comedy starring Danny la Rue
• 1976 - Carry on England - Film from the long running Carry On series
• 1976 - Battle of Midway - War film dramatising the Japanese attack on Midway Island in 1942
• 1979 - Breakthrough (aka Sergeant Steiner) — War film starring Richard Burton
• 1984 - The Secret War of Jackie s Girls — ITV television drama series
• 1986 - Murrow - Channel 4 television drama based on the life of Ed Murrow, wartime news correspondent
• 1988 - A Piece of Cake - Television drama series based around an RAF fighter squadron in 1940
• 1999 - Finest Hour - BBC Television documentary series chronicling the events of 1940
• 2001 - Dark Blue World - Czech film about Czech pilots in the Battle of Britain
• 2010 - First Light - TV Movie based on biography of WWII Pilot, Geoffrey Willum

Quick update: The scanner I was going to send this to is a little backed up at the moment - it could take more than 6 months to get the print scanned there, so I’m currently exploring some alternative options…

Color matching and prediction: color correction tool v1.3 released!
Time

Here you go everybody:

Dr Dre’s color Matching tool v1.2 (latest version) for 64 bit Windows*:

Dr Dre’s color Matching tool v1.2 (latest version) for 64 bit OSX:

https://ln.sync.com/dl/89689baa0/6c22akdh-3ct3f4wr-mwmscjkw-5q7xg6hb (10 MB)**

* If you have a 64 bit version of Windows AND you have more than 4 GB of RAM AND you need to color match two giant images (4k or 8k with 16-bit color, or 2 giant 8K size montages of images, then it would be worth uninstalling the 32-bit version and downloading and installing the 64-bit version. I don’t think you will find it is any faster under “normal use” situations.

** Why is the mac version so much smaller? Simple really: in 2014, Matlab enhanced it’s package builder with some new features, one of which is an option to download the runtime package from the internet during install. The windows version was compiled with the 2012 compiler, which doesn’t have this option (or the option to change the icon and splash screen).

Enjoy!

If you have any issues with the new versions, let us know.

Sorry, I was on Vacation. But I’m back now and the print should be on its way to the scanner any day now, so if you are interested in this project and you are willing and able to donate some money, please send me a PM. Thank you!

hmmm. I did think about allowing you to edit and delete comparisons, but I can’t just throw those options on there or anybody who comes to the page to view your comparisons could simply edit or delete it. So then I though some sort of secret “owner identity key” needs to be generated upon creation but then you would need to save that somewhere locally so that you could come back and edit or delete, or perhaps I could tie them to your IP address and/or use a cookie… I’ll think about that. I just don’t want to force users to register, login and remember another password…

EDIT: The bounding box issue should be fixed now though.

Taking this from NeverarGreat’s thread I think you misunderstood my problem then: What I want is to be able to quickly switch between two version even blindly, and even when their tabs are not positioned next to each other. As it is now I have to carefully move the cursor up above the tabs, and back down to the correct tab. But I have a better idea: Right now you allow to upload up to 6 images - can you maybe add keyboard support so that you can change the image by simply pressing its number key?

I like that idea! I’ll see what I can do.

I do take feature requests, but I think this one is already covered. With the Bond example, if you mouseover the laserdisc tab and then up away from the tabs you are left looking at the laserdisc. So then you can mouse back down over the SE DVD (or any other tab) to directly compare it to the laserdisc. Keeping your mouse only on the tabs limits you to comparing them in that order, but move away from the tabs and you can compare them in any order.

Sorry NeverarGreat - I don’t want to hijack your thread, so I have created a new thread for FrameCompare.com bug reports and feature requests:

So is there a way to fix the links?

patience?

I would not hold your breath. That site has seemingly never been updated, goes offline randomly, and almost always has extremely slow load times. All of these issues have been present for years. There is simply no better alternative available to take its place. (yet)

I saw this post and I decided on the spot “I should build an alternative”. So I bought a domain name on Tuesday morning and built a quick screenshot comparison site:

http://www.framecompare.com

Here is an example showing how it works with multiple aligned images:

http://www.framecompare.com/screenshotcomparison/WNNN8T8X

I literally just put it up 5 minutes ago, so there are bound to be some bugs that need working out, but it does seem to work. I made several “enhancements” I felt were missing from the old site:

  • You can compare up to six images with each other all at once
  • er. Ok, I guess it’s just that one enhancement then.

Try it out and let me know what you think.

The theatrical colors of the Star Wars trilogy
Time

Actually it wasn’t that green when projected - This was taken a few weeks ago with a color calibrated camera from the projection booth at a screening of an SE print:

The image Dre posted above was photographed with the same camera - really the only difference is that these images were photographed reflected from the screen, while the ‘green’ image was photographed by pointing the camera directly into the projector lens. Could the white of the screen be enough to change the color that much? I’m thinking perhaps it can…
