100 Jahre Universal: Restoring the Classics – A Lifetime of Memories

4 Comments

(Youtube Direktuniversal, via Peter)

Schöner Clip von Universal, die zu ihrem hundertsten Geburtstag ein paar Klassiker restaurieren und in diesem Video ein paar Einblicke in den Prozess geben. Restauriert werden im Laufe des Jahres: All Quiet on the Western Front, The Birds, Buck Privates, Dracula (1931), Dracula Spanish (1931), Frankenstein, Jaws, Schindler’s List, Out of Africa, Pillow Talk, Bride of Frankenstein, The Sting und To Kill a Mockingbird.

Außerdem haben sie sich ein Tumblelog zum Jubiläum angeschafft, auf dem sie unter anderem die Geschichte ihres Logos erzählen:

Legend has it that Carl Laemmle named the company after seeing a “Universal Pipe Fittings” truck pass by his New York office window. Though our name may have been inspired by a whim, today Universal is considered a pioneer in cinematic history. Our logo symbolizes the films we’ve created which have not only impacted millions, but also helped tell the story of filmmaking.

The Universal logo has gone on to change over the years since 1912. From the silent logo of UNIVERSAL FILMS encircling the globe…to the ‘droning propeller plane circling the globe’ that marked the arrival of sound…and finally, to today’s more modern and vivid Universe—the Universal logo has reflected the evolution of film.

    Als ZidZ III im Kino lief hat Universal die alten Logos nochmals gezeigt, freu mich schon auf den ersten Film von Universal 2012, dass neue Logo in Bewegung zu sehen.

    Ich hoffe auf viele Klassiker (Dracula, Der Unsichtbare) restauriert auf Blu-ray)!

    PS: Das neue Paramount (100th Anniversary) findet man schon bei YT.

    mir gefiel das farbige oben rechts immer am besten ^^ das neue kann sich auch sehen lassen.

    Muss mich wohl noch an das Logo gewöhnen. Momentan sieht es mir noch ein Tick zu steril und billig aus. So sci-fi channel mässig.
    Mal abwarten wie es in Bewegung aussieht.

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.

    Sir Christopher Lee, more fantastic than all of us. ALL OF US.

    Performed in a metal opera as Charlemagne.

    Schooled director of original and only worthwhile Wicker Man about ancient Druidic practices.

    And blessed with the most authoritarian voice ever. And I think he’s like 1,90m tall

    The only person in Peter Jackson’s LOTR cast to have met and conversed with J.R.R Tolkien 

    Corrected Sir Peter on the sound a person makes when stabbed in the back due to actual experience with that action

    He didn’t just perform as Charlemagne; he’s directly related to the great Frankish king.

    His WWII service was in the British Special Forces.

    He was an SOE agent, right?

    That he was
