Great news, but a few thoughts... Isn't "Four Devils" included on the existing "Sunrise" DVD in a fragmented form? Is this set going to include a more complete version? I ask because "The River" is singled out as fragmented, while this title is not.
Also, with this set containing roughly half the number of films of Ford at Fox, I wonder why Savant is concerned about it costing as much. I'm sure it won't be cheap, but a $300 MSRP?
Fabulous news--particularly LILLIOM, which I thought might have been included on CAROUSEL. I believe that prints of BAD GIRL and AFTER TOMORROW exist, but are prints of DOCTORS'WIVES, YOUNG AMERICA, YOUNG AS YOU FEEL extant?
That does leave 5 more films that Borzage made at Fox from 1930 to 1932. Maybe those will be included in a second volume. I hope it does, since that would mean Young As You Feel would get a release also.
Would love to see more Borzage on dvd: WB (THE SHINING HOUR, THREE COMRADES, THE MORTAL STORM, HISTORY IS MADE AT NIGHT, GREEN LIGHT, SMILIN' THROUGH, THE SPANISH MAIN, FLIRTATION WALK, MANNEQUIN, THE VANISHING VIRGINIAN, SEVEN SWEETHEARTS), LionsGate (MOONRISE--arguably his masterpiece, THAT'S MY MAN!, THE MAGNIFICENT DOLL, I'VE ALWAYS LOVED YOU), Disney? (THE BIG FISHERMAN), and filing this under "It Ain't Going to Happen"): Columbia (MAN'S CASTLE and NO GREATER GLORY) and Universal/MCA (LITTLE MAN, WHAT NOW?, DESIRE, HIS BUTLER'S SISTER, DISPUTED PASSAGE, TILL WE MEET AGAIN). Borzage was a hugely underrated talent, and it's sad to see how neglected his output is today....possibly because of the blacklist in the fifties. It is great to see that Fox will be opening their vaults on his silent and early talkie films.
