    Grain? Are you sure that shouldn't be "golf balls"?

    But I like the shots. Without the grain, they wouldn't look right, somehow.

    I don't mind the grain, but what has happened to the bass player's guitar neck in the third picture? :eek:

    That's a multi-scale or 'fanned fret' bass. The idea is that the scale length is longer for the lowest strings and shorter for the highest - it's explained better than I can here.

    I thought it might be something like that - it's just unfortunate that the first fret is vertical, that's what makes it look warped.

    It was the first really. The last is a bit of a stretch, grain or no grain.

    In the mid 1970s 'Gone With The Wind' was shown again in cinemas in the UK, just before being sold to television.
    I saw a 70 mm print projected on a screen 60 feet wide: the film grain of the 1939 Technicolor process was so bad at this enlargement that on the screen each grain was about the size of a football.

    I think you probably don't want to watch it from 3 feet away :confused:

    I was 50-60 feet away, and would estimate that each film grain was a few inches across. It must have looked awful from the front row.

    The degree of enlargement was because the original 1.33:1 'academy ratio' negative had been cropped to (I think) 2.33:1 'scope' ratio and printed as an anamorphic image on 70 mm film, so the image was laterally 'squeezed' and then 'unsqueezed' by an anamorphic lens fitted to the film projector. The original mono soundtrack had also been processed to use all the surround sound channels available on 70 mm prints, and the dialogue was literally 'all over the place'.
