8MM movie. You've got a bunch that are probably family etc. That W C Fields one might be worth big bucks depending on which one it was. I'd suggest buying an 8mm projector or a editor to view them on! There's a chance there of historic events, family memories. The editors can be had cheaply because no one uses them anymore. Another reason for reviewing them is to possibly prevent an embarrassing moment......... True story! One of my buddies found a shoebox of movies in his dads workshop. He brought em over & we got a rude awakening. Guess we figured out what him & the boys were doing out in the shop and that "ole girl" wasn't the car!!!!!
Sounds like you've got some fun ahead! He was an extra? You might have some frames of him with someone well known. Worked with a guy that was an extra in a B movie that nobody heard of. He was selling copies of his pics from press kits like 20 years later! Funny story about him. He teed off one of the guys at work & he pranked him good. He had his girlfriend call him saying she was from an attorney that represented his old agents attorney regarding a residual check for this movie, a couple days before April Fools day. He went nuts trying to call the number for a week!!!!! The number was always busy. He didn't find out the number was to the zoo & the ladys name was the name of a monkey. The zoo put all their phones on hold the week before April Fools day so they didn't have to answer 100s of prank calls. Best prank EVER!Haha.. That's too funny.
I held some of the footage up and it looked to be military related.
I have an entire cedar chest full of old cameras and a few will play the 8mm. I believe my great uncle worked on cameras and radios as a hobby and was an extra in a few movies. So the story goes.
