NOVASCOPE
9.5MM FILM CATALOGUE



Novascope was set up in the UK around 1970 by two keen 9.5mm enthusiasts Pat Moules and the late Paul Van Someren. They managed to locate some of the original Pathéscope (UK) and SCI Pathé (France) 9.5mm film slitting, perforating and printing equipment and with the help of 9.5mm specialist dealer Larry Pearce they began producing 9.5mm black and white printed films as triple prints on the specially perforated 35mm positive stock from triple 9.5mm negatives produced by themselves from 16mm masters. They had to find unperforated 35mm printing stock, arrange processing and then print, perforate and slit every inch of the films they issued! Pat Moules says he spent many hours in the basement of his parents' house in a dim red light, just running the perforating machine - turning out thounsands of feet of the special 35mm positive printing stock - what dedication!

The Novascope company originally traded as "Novascope 9.5 Films" from 7 Colebrooke Avenue, London E.3, UK, later by April 1972 from 145 New Kings Road, London, S.W.6, but by Febuary 1973 had been formed into a limited company "Novascope Limited" trading from 14 Gowan Avenue, London, SW6 6RF, UK.

Some of the titles were produced from existing Pathéscope triple negatives that Larry Pearce had rescued from materials scrapped when the Pathéscope company had closed down in the UK. Other titles were new to 9.5mm and generally of very good quality. Unfortunately lowish sales and other events meant that these two entrepreneurs had to cease operations after three or four years, but leaving a new selection of genuine 9.5mm printed films for collectors to search out.


Probably the first advert in the Group 9.5 magazine "The 9.5 Review" August 1971


The 9.5mm Novascope film releases were announced in various news letters - the first dated February 1971 being just titled "Novascope" was a four page (folded quarto high grade glossy paper) catalogue. One reel (300ft) 9.5mm film releases were priced at 64/-, soon to be £3.20 with decimalisation of our UK currency. There was also a "No.1 Spring 1971 supplement" - just a single duplicated sheet included with the Feb 1971 catalogue. The second ("Novascope No.2") was similar and dated Summer/Autumn 1971. A third ("Novascope No.3") was dated Winter 1971/1972. In Spring 1972 there was just a "News from Novascope" detailing a move to new premises and the fitting out of a new laboratory. A photocopied A4 folded sheet dated February 1973 and headed "Novascope News" apologised for delays, but announced the release of two 9.5mm optical sound titles. Spring 1973 saw the issue of an eight page (two folded quarto sheets) catalogue titled "Novascope Review" with more film releases, an article on how Novascope films were made and a few 9.5mm dealer advertisements. "Novascope Review No.2" was dated 1974 and back to just 4 pages (one folded quarto sheet) - one reel (300ft) films had increased in price to £4.90 caused by the introduction of VAT and increased processing, filmstock and postage costs. There were fewer new releases because of delays whilst the printing equipment was improved. No further news sheets were produced and because of poor sales and work commitments no more 9.5mm films were released. Novascope had a stall at the Group 9.5 1975 Autumn Get-Together where the few remaining 9.5mm prints were sold off. Sadly the end of a valiant attempt to release new 9.5mm film prints - by this time most film collectors (and film makers) had turned to standard 8mm ......


Some time after, enthusiastic 9.5mm dealer Roy Salmons obtained the Novascope film equipment and produced more copies of existing titles. He had hoped to produce new titles including colour releases, but low sales and other problems overtook the project. Much of the equipment, some triple negatives etc. now languish in my garage, in various states of disrepair, probably never to be used again. (I had wild ideas to print up further 9.5mm triple prints, but by then print stock had become polyester, the local microfilm processing lab closed and much work was needed to refurbish the equipment, really for no purpose as even test sales of decent quality modern 9.5mm colour prints (16mm prints reperforated) were very low!)


The two 9.5mm optical sound film releases were produced in 1973 from existing (very rare) 9.5mm optical sound films by contact printing a negative (picture & sound track), then contact printing the copies on 9.5mm postive film stock. Originally priced at £5.95 (1973), within a year or so, these prints cost £7.70. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" came from an early UK demo print, "Out For A Duck" from a French Pathé-Baby release MS.80017 "Quand Un Canard" (When A Duck).


Many of the Novascope 9.5mm film releases were excellently reviewed in great detail in the Group 9.5 magazine by the indefatigable Maurice Trace, who has also produced some superb detailed catalogues of both sound and silent Pathescope 9.5mm film releases and continues to write a regular film review column in the magazine. Issue 39 (February 1972) of "The 9.5 Review" includes "The Rounders" and "Home Cured"; issue 2 (Autumn 1972) of "9.5" (the magazine had been relaunched as a quarterly), includes "Uncle Tom's Cabin", "Good Cheer", "Christmas Day Around the World" and "Spot the Stars"; issue 4 (Spring 1973) of "9.5" includes "Out For A Duck"; issue 7 (Winter 1973/1974) includes "British Screen News", "Moonshine" and "Sundown Limited"; issue 8 (Spring 1974) includes "Charlie the Bricklayer", "Farina's Fairground" and "Felix in Hollywood"; issue 10 (Autumn 1974) reviews just "Belles of Liberty".

A number of titles were actually announced in the Novascope news sheets or the Group 9.5 magazine but for various reasons didn't actually appear - "Paul's First Kiss"; "The Snake Charmer" and "Muggsy's First Sweetheart"; whilst mention was also made of further optical sound releases "Dick Turpin's Ride To York"; songs from "Land Without Music" and Bubble & Squeak cartoons, but low sound print sales prevented further optical sound releases.

                 (It's a trying day for our feathered friend.  First he makes amorous advances which get a wooden
                  response.  Worse, he becomes the target of two intrepid young hunters.  The pace hots up, but
                  when an ostrich pops up from nowhere to mete out punishment, our young friends wonder - can all
                  this be happening?  See this amusing and unusual cartoon.)
