I saw this restoration last week and it was quite remarkable. IIRC, they used original negative for a great deal of it and it was startlingly stable and clean. The shots from other sources were obvious and looked more like we're used to seeing silent films from the period appearing (if lucky), and overall it was much better than I thought it would be.

Apparently Kino still has issues with using incorrectly encoded framerates for its more recent silent film blu-rays.  Any word on whether this was attended to for Calagari?  Otherwise I'll be getting MoC/Eureka's from the UK.

It's not out yet, so who knows? What I do know is that the Eureka release starts shipping tomorrow with free delivery (https://www.eurekavi...des-dr-caligari - order before 29th September to get £1 off at checkout, you'll need to log in to add it to your basket), and that it has a new and exclusive David Kalat commentary, and that in all other regards it'll probably be better than the Kino release.
