    Yes, that would certainly be nice. With the music score by Carl Davis, of course!

    This and THE WIND and BEN-HUR, etc. Warner Bros holds the rights to some of the best - and best-preserved - silents. I had absolutely no hope they would even consider these for DVD release until I saw a bunch of great foreign language films on their schedule for the coming months. Now...I keep my fingers crossed.

    I'm almost positive that Warner's handling of the Charlie Chaplin films (starting in June) is a "test" of doing more silents.

    The Crowd could have two scores, in fact. I think the score done for the original 1928 release exists, plus there is the digital stereo Carl Davis score.

    I want The Crowd - my favorite silent film - sooooooooooo bad. C'mon, Warner!

    And how about getting the Cameraman out, too?
