The vertical line you mention happens during a night scene about 3 quarters into the picture and was hoping kino could have dealt with it but they dont do warner type restorations. It has been present in every single vhs and dvd version that i have seen and seems to be in one reel of the film for 5-10 min.

True, for the most part Kino's releases are not pristine like WA releases. That's not surprising to me considering the number of titles they release on a monthly basis compared to WA and Criterion.

Yes i think kino just does color balancing for movies. I dont think they ever take out straches and lines and such. At least not in 30s movies. If they release a movie like beau geste, scratches would have been removed over the years by universal before kino got it.

Stuff like this does not bother me at all as long as the film grain remains everything is good for these old 30's films.
