The Woman Who Loves Giraffes: The Story of Anne Innis Dagg
Written and Directed by Alison Reid
Featuring the voices of Tatiana Maslany and Victor Garber

In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, 23-year-old biologist Anne Innis Dagg made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild. When she returned home a year later, the insurmountable barriers she faced as a female scientist proved hard to overcome. In The Woman Who Loves Giraffes Anne (now 86) retraces her steps, offering an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first-hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today.

Special Features:
*Deleted Scenes
*Doc Soup Q&A
*Trailers

Agreed.

It’s a shame that the Moore commentary for Gold will never be released. I hope it can be possible at some point.
Maybe it'll end up getting released on the internet, once whomever holds it realizes it's now pretty much worthless.

I saw the Duvivier version in another lifetime. It was a 35mm print which is probably long gone by now. I'd like anyone to get the rights to it and release it just to be able to compare it to the original German film.

What a great list from Kino! As for the films in the Film Noir and Barbara Stanwyck collections, I'm guessing that
Kino wants to have SOME surprises left up its sleeve. The same would hold true for the movies simply identified
as 1930s Universal Film and 1980s Universal Film.

Tartuffe (1925)
Directed by F.W. Murnau
Starring Emil Jannings and Lil Dagover

The most gifted visual storyteller of the German silent era, F. W. Murnau crafted works of great subtlety and emotional complexity through his absolute command of the cinematic medium. Known for such dazzling films as Nosferatu (1922), The Last Laugh (1924), Faust (1926), and Sunrise (1927), Murnau was also drawn to more intimate dramas exploring the dark corners of the human mind. In Tartuffe (Herr Tartüff), he revisits Moliére's fable of religious hypocrisy, in which a faithful wife (Lil Dagover) tries to convince her husband (Werner Krauss) that their morally superior guest, Tartuffe (Emil Jannings), is in fact a lecherous hypocrite with a taste for the grape. To endow the story with contemporary relevance, Murnau frames Moliére's tale with a modern-day plot concerning a housekeeper's stealthy efforts to poison her elderly master and take control of his estate.

Special features:
*Audio commentary by film historian Troy Howarth
*Restored German release version with orchestral score by Robert Israel
*U.S. release version (SD) with music by Giuseppe Becce, adapted by Javier Perez De Azpeitia
