As mentioned here, I have a bit of a camera collecting habit even though any serious photographic pursuits I once had fell off long ago. But my recent interest in this little number
made me realize that many of the cameras in my collection have yet to be tested, and while most of them require film that would be difficult to track down, a few of them are 35mm cameras.
Test subject #1
The Kodak Retinette 1A. 24 shots to go until I find out if it actually works...

After a week and a half of starring at the Orange Library's Criterion copy of The Red Shoes lying inert beside my TV, I finally watched the film. I now understand Martin Scorsese's fervor for Powell and Pressburger's creation and I can also appreciate what it means to be truly fascinated and bored by something simultaneously (see: ballet).
And also, is it just me or would The Red Shoes viewed without sound resemble a horror film?
