hi,

well, the main question is on the title.
i knwo darius khondji shot "stealing beauty" and "delicatessen" with this set.
i remember also how they were used on "mr and mrs smith" (only on close ups, intercut with the newer S4 lenses)

any other films ?

thanks,

thomas

There were only two lenses made in the Cooke 'S3' series, the 18mm and 25mm. The closeup shots you're referring to from "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" were most likely shot with series2 or older Cookes.

If I remember correctly, Roger Pratt used them on 'Twelve Monkeys'.

To the best of my knowledge, the Series II's were produced in 18, 25, 28, 32, 40, 50, and 75mm, the 100mm was only made in the Deep Field Panchro design. I've got a small set of II's and III's, I'm still looking for a good 18mm SIII in Arri Standard. ABC in Canada had one on eBay but I couldn't get a straight answer as to its condition.

As were most if not all the Terry Gilliam/Roger Pratt films, such as Brazil.

Ed Lachman shot The Limey with Cooke series II & III primes. He owns a complete set of the S II - III primes as well as the S 4 line. He has used them on several of his films.
