I have had this on LD for years. Anyone have a line on any plans to release this on DVD?
Nothing so far...
So far, none of the Thames documentaries made by Kevin Brownlow and David Gill have been released to DVD. Cinema Europe and the Lon Chaney doc are the only ones out so far (and both are Photoplay productions, rather than Thames).
I've tried contacting Freemantle (who now owns Thames), but no replies yet. I think HBO may still hold the video rights, too.
A DVD edition would really be great if the whole show was remastered from scratch (especially the sound) and the clips were taken from better quality sources when possible.
DVD editions of Unknown Chaplin, Buster Keaton: A Hard Act to Follow, Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius, D.W. Griffith: The Father of Film, and Universal Horror would be fantastic, too.
This series came up in another thread about Hollywood related docs. Don't remember if anyone had any pertinent info, but here it is in case you're curious:
This is screening all month at Cinema Du Parc in Montreal, I might check it out...
From video or film?
I'm really not sure but I doubt they would source video screenings, I'll check though.
Well, if you are not a fan of silent film then you should see it - It will change your whole perspective on silent film. I know it did for me.
Looks like Network's DVD (R2) is coming out on March 20th:
Even better, Buster Keaton: A Hard Act to Follow is coming out on Feb. 27th:
I'm guessing U.S. releases won't be far behind.
