Heya

I'm doing a re-cut of GREASE with the audio off an original 1981 laser disc and adding cues for authenticity ( [Wink] ). While I can remember exactly the first 5 changeover spots, for whatever reason my memory is a little hazy on 6 to 7 and there is some doubt.

I have it happening at the end of Look At Me reprise as she runs off with Frenchie and ends on a mid shot of Danny (c/o) then start of 7 is a shot of Eve Arden in the school office. Is that right?

It's been many years since I ran the original release back in the 70's.
I can't say I remember the 'out' on reel 6, but the shot of Eve Arden
you mention right after the C/O seems to jog some old memory cells,
and that's sorta what I can recall too.

(remember, at the end of R6, I was looking for 'dots', not what's going on
elsewhere on screen. I have better memories of "incoming" reels, since I'm
checking for focus, even arc-light & cat-hair in the gate after the reel changes)

Hi John

I have a print somewhere. If you don't get a definitive answer by tonight I shall drag it out and have a look at those two reels.

Hopefully, someone else will have given you the answer by then.

Reel 6 ends with a white car (Greased Lightning?) and a bunch of people standing around it in the dry waterway (culvert?). It then cuts to a long shot of the wall of the waterway with what appears to be someone standing half way up the slope. The final cue marks then appear.

Reel 7 starts with a shot of a black car with five guys standing around it and one guy sitting in the drivers seat.

I hope this is enough to identify where to put the cue marks.

If you need further info let me know.

Cheers

This conversation has brought out an obsession of mine when I was a kid: looking out for changeover cues and how the changeovers affected the edit and flow of a film. Does anyone know of a website that has documented where the changeovers are in various films over the years? I kind of miss them when I go to the movies these days.

Very geekish I know.

Thanks Peter. That's perfect. A little earlier than what I thought...but now I do recall it.

Is your print an original by any chance or the '98 re-issue?

Many thanks to all yet again.

It is stamped SRD so I would think it was a reprint.
