The following is taken from the “Alt.Movies.Silent” website, concerning 3 great DVDs of classic Erich Von Stroheim films coming from Kino in June. “The Kino Von Stroheim's will be released on June 10 and will probably be on sale on Web site with the usual 30% off discount a few weeks before. There are Three: QUEEN KELLY FOOLISH WIVES with THE MAN YOU LOVE TO HATE BLIND HUSBANDS with THE GREAT GABBO (from Library of Congress Material) Below is a list of extras. QUEEN KELLY: ·Digitally remastered from 35mm negative. ·Audio commentary by von Stroheim biographer Richard Koszarski ·Rare outtakes (approx. 15 min.) ·The "Swanson Ending" (approx. 5 min.) ·Swanson Discusses Queen Kelly (20 min. video) ·Photo Gallery ·Screenplay Excerpt ·Production Documents ·Brief note on the film by von Stroheim ·Audio interview clips: Director of photography Paul Ivano, First Asst. Cameraman William Margulies, Allan Dwan and Billy Wilder ·Excerpts from MERRY-GO-ROUND (Scenes directed by von Stroheim [music by Rodney Sauer]; excerpt of the novel, brief notes on the film by von Stroheim) ·"Man of Many Skins" (starring Erich von Stroheim and Denise Vernac), a 27-minute episode of the 1952 European TV series "Orient-Express" FOOLISH WIVES & THE MAN YOU LOVE TO HATE: ·Audio Commentary by Koszarski ·Rare outttake footage ·Photo Gallery ·New York Censor Board Cuts ·1922 Score performed By Rodney Saur ·Audio Clips with Valerie von Stroheim & Paul Kohner ·Note on films by von Stroheim BLIND HUSBANDS & GREAT GABBO ·Score by Donald Sosin adapted from 1919 Cue Sheets ·Excerpts from original press books ·Dossier on ill fated remake of Blind Husbands ·"The High Command" a 1944 radio broadcast with von Stroheim ·Various other notes by von Stroheim & photos” I haven’t watched THE GREAT GABBO (1929; in which von Stroheim only stars as an egomaniacal ventriloquist) or Patrick Montgomery’s feature-length documentary on von Stroheim, THE MAN YOU LOVE TO HATE (1980), or Image’s MERRY-GO-ROUND (1923; started by von Stroheim but completed by Rupert Julian) - which should be released next week - for that matter, so I’ll be picking up all of them immediately. The supplements sound pretty good, especially the ones on the QUEEN KELLY (1928) disc – but that’s perhaps because the other two are basically double-features! There’s no company that treats Silent films the way Kino does, that’s for sure – and I’ll certainly keep supporting their products for as long as I can!
