General Note / OCR

Color film of Jerry Hains, Ron Deluerier and Chuck Abbott in Vietnam experimenting with anamorphic/scope lens. Part A: This 100 ft roll of film was filmed at the Villa in Vietnam. Jerry Hains, Ron Deluerier (Frenchy - in picture), and I were using the 16mm lense (anamorphic/scope) to see if it would work by holding it up against a regular lens. Also, if holding it in place, and then rotating, what effect would we get. We thought it would make for a special effect for someone who had a few too many drinks...As Frenchy demonstrates in our Hollywood epic. It turned out quit unique for a few guys, finding something to do on our off time. Also see Reel can marked #38A.
