One of the main benefactors of the 9.5mm movie gauge when Pathéscope in its various forms had withdrawn from the movie scene after 1964, was the late Larry Pearce, initially trading from his then home at Bowrons Avenue, Wembley, UK. I think a builder by trade, Larry was a keen film man, but also a very dynamic entrepreneur in the film world. Once 'official' 9.5mm film stocks had dissapeared, enthusiasts attempted to obtain new supplies - Ferrania were willing to supply 9.5mm camera film stock, but there were problems as someone explained to Larry - "the minimum order was something like £30,000" - "What's the problem" said Larry and immediately set an order in motion! Most of the Pathéscope equipment and 9.5mm stock was being junked, so Larry managed to rescue much of it. For many years LGP (Cine) kept the gauge alive together with one or two other dealers like D.M. Bentley at Brighouse.. Sadly Larry Pearce died a while ago, but he will still be remembered most for supplies of leader film in all cine film gauges and the "Thermofilm" cine film cleaner/lubricant! (See another earlier photo and 9.5mm filmstock article "Mister Nine-Five" by Ivan Watson in ACW for 9June1966)

Larry Pearce of LGP (Cine) at a film fair

Although Larry Pearce had rescued the Pathéscope equipment that had been used to produce the triple 9.5mm prints on special 35mm positive stock, he passed this onto another group of enthusiasts who formed Novascope (see separate lists) and helped them get started on 9.5mm film printing. Meantime Larry Pearce had also acquired the 16mm to 9.5mm perforator and slitter designed and used by Walton Films to produce their 9.5mm film releases. Having moved into large commercial premises at Ealing Road with Ian Perry of Perries Movies, they had a continuous processing machine and printing equipment to produce 8mm package movies. Now standard 8mm package movies were often printed two-at-a-time on specially perforated 16mm positive film stock. With the arrival of Super 8mm, large stocks of this 'double-8' print stock were being cleared. Using any available 16mm negatives LGP (Cine) printed many vintage film titles, then reperforated these 16mm 'double-8' prints to sell as 9.5mm prints.

Another keen 9.5mm enthusiast and keen drawn-on-film animator - Paul Carnell - had been printing 9.5mm shorts, some in colour (and just one in 9.5mm colour optical sound!) mostly of his own animated films. Later he began marketing short 30ft and 60ft 9.5mm glamour films, soon in conjunction with Larry Pearce the glamour releases became 100fts and were printed by LGP (Cine) themselves..

Most of the 9.5mm glamour releases have an interesting history - (they are listed separately lower down this page). Peter Walker (later a well known cinema film director) formed a company Heritage Films which released package films initially in 8mm, then later Super 8mm. Some Heritage 1 reel releases were std 8mm sound "Flicker Flashbacks" of American RKO musical shorts and vintage movies; some UK colour musical pop music shorts; plus cut-downs of American cheap horror film offerings like "Plan 9 From Outer Space". However the biggest part of the catalogue (and the biggest sellers!) were a large range of glamour films. Walton glamour films had been bikini style productions, but Pete Walker's Heritage series were full nude (but in the best possible taste of course!). Later when Peter Walker moved into cinema feature film work, his package movie stuff was taken over by Mountain Films who tended to rather cut corners on film length and quality - probably to stay in business though! Incidentally much of Peter Walker's initial cinema output was 'sexploitation' with films like "Cool It Carol" (later released in the UK, cut, on Super 8mm sound by Mountain Films); later he moved into the horror genre with titles like "House Of Whipcotd"; "Frightmare"; "The Comeback" etc. Look for the collectable coffin shaped DVD boxed set!

The interesting thing is that LGP (Cine) took over much of the Heritage Films master glamour material and used the 16mm negatives to print up the 9.5mm releases. Interesting because they also appear to have used various rehearsals/offcuts from the original filming to produce some of the short films (Most glamour releases at that time were about 4 minutes - 50ft on std 8mm / 100ft on 9.5mm or 16mm). At about the same time Ferrania were clearing some of their 16mm camera film stocks - much of this was 100foot colour reversal stock. So using this and reperfing to 9.5mm, a number of the glamour titles were also released in colour. Once teething troubles were overcome (colour balance for example) the prints were very good and today (2013) my copies still have very good colour.

LGP (Cine) Transport Series

The first LGP (Cine) 9.5mm releases appear to be the rerelease in the early 1960s of a series of steam transport shorts, originally filmed by Geoff Holyoake of Meteor Films and released by them under the Link Productions banner (see the separate Link Productions film lists for full details) - the transport titles are listed first below:

Most of these titles were later marketed by Bentleyfilms, but still printed by LGP Cine - these were 16mm contact printed then reperfed to 9.5mm. In fact I still have some of the 16mm negatives in my garage from the times when myself and a film friend intended to release more 9.5mm printed films!

Some of the Geoff Holyoake material (from the Meteor Films days) can be found on a three DVD boxed set from Duke Marketing - titled " The Geoff Holyoake Collection", it may be found on Amazon etc., from a local garden centre or branches of EWM (Edinburgh Woollen Mill). In colour like the 8mm and 16mm offerings - sadly no 9.5mm releases were in colour, but you may come across a colour 16mm print later reperforated to 9.5mm..

LGP (Cine) General Catalogue

Next is the LGP (Cine) general catalogue of 9.5mm film releases. These run from 30foot / 10metre shorts like "Taxi Fools" through to full 2 reel (800foot / 240metre) silent classics with Laurel & Hardy, Harold Lloyd, Snub Pollard, Our Gang and Stan Laurel. Plus a couple of Van Beuren cartoons from 1930 - the 9.5mm prints are mute, but check out the You Tube links to excellent talkie versions! There were a number of 'specials' - like records of a couple of early Group 9.5 Get-Togethers; a French release of the Apollo 11 moon walk "L'Homme Sur La Lune", an early Pathé 'promo' film of their Paris factories "Visite Aux Usines Pathé Cinema" , and a war-time German newsreel "Ein Volk".

LGP (Cine) Glamour Series

Most of the LGP (Cine) 9.5mm glamour film releases originated from Pete Walker's Heritage Films material, some is still unidentified. The issue dates refer to the LGP (Cine) 9.5mm prints - obtained from original dated sales lists. Only the 100foot / 30metre (ref. "C") items are complete Heritage releases. The 30foot / 10metre (ref. "L") and 60foot / 20metre (ref."D") were either clips from the 100foot / 30metre releases or even unused out-takes from the original filming. The titles issued in colour were also available in black & white versions. Originally contact printed on 16mm, some prints may later have been contact printed onto 9.5mm positive stock as I have some 9.5mm B/W negatives (all have 16mm perforation pitch).

 Model info:

   Dawn Grayson - real name Kay Kirkham; born 1942; 37"-24"-36"  5ft 4ins; moved with her husband
                  to Maryland, USA in 1970
   The Amber Topaz in these films was I believe a London stripper, but is not the current burlesque
    queen using the same name who is only in her twenties!
   Jayne Tracey is her real name - 37"-22"-36"  5ft 6ins; natural hair colour blonde; eyes green 

   The model listed as Anne Wilson seems to be listed elsewhere as Ann Wilson - yes the same model
   also appears in many Harrison Marks 'Camera' publications, but always as Ann Wilson.
   Remember these glamour shorts were made around 1960 - these girls would have been in their late
   teens or early twenties - today if they are still alive they must be in their seventies 
   (yes.... like me!) - sorry ladies - maybe someone is still out there? 
The film footages mentioned are for std 8mm film prints, 9.5mm prints would be twice this footage
(Eleven of these titles were reviewed as 8mm prints in the 24th November 1966 Amateur Cine World)
One of the glamour releases seems to have cime from a Walton Films negative, so watch "Musical Strip" but on Super 8mm! 


Thanks to 9.5mm enthusiast Mike Readioff, we are reminded of other little cine lines that the late Larry Pearce distributed. (Well I think he got these made by a plastic injection moulding company somewhere around the Wembley area)

LGP plastic 9.5mm film clips and 100foot / 30metre 9.5mm cine spools

The little film clips were ideal to secure the end of the film neatly on the various film spools. From the leaflet Mike has sent me, these little film clips were remarkably cheap! This was probably way back in the 1960s (we still had the old coinage!).

The same company made the 100 foot / 30 metre 9.5mm film spools for Larry. Most of his 9.5mm film releases arrived on these spools (which were fine, even if the centre hole did need easing a little with a nail file!). I recall selling both these lines on my sales lists, way, way back. I think the spools may have been a shilling each (5p), but I guess I got them for about half for resale. What value - not quite the same these days!

LGP 9.5mm leader film pack

9.5mm enthusiast Mike Readioff has just contacted me again with this tidied image of the label from one of the LGP film leader packs - in the end Larry became 'Mr Film Leader' supplying leader film in all gauges and colours. (I myself still try to do my best supplying leader film, but looks like bulk supplies may soon be running out!). In fact Mike was buying yet more 9.5mm leader film and enclosed the label shown. Thanks so much Mike! (08Aug2017)
