My father loved his cine camera and made some silent family films. After he died I found some of the reels which I had converted to video. Some are shown in an appropriate place in his story and the others are here.
As this first film is actually called ‘Daddy buys a cine camera’ then, I guess, it was his first. It seems to have been made about 1956.
This next on is entitled ‘Bound for Salahuddin’ , an Iraqi province.
Then there is ‘The Wishing Shoes’ – some amateur dramatics and a fairy tale.
Next is ‘A visit to Rome’.
Then there’s a film of a trip to Turkey and Greece.
Then there is a compilation of family holidays in England and France in the 1960s.
There is a short film of Montmartre in 1968.
