Yes, the sets should be announced next week and hopefully also the 30s and 80s titles.
Another must in a film lover's library. This restoration is great and Jannings is amazing. Murnau is one of the most sublime artists of the silent medium.
A Thousand Clowns and Pink Panther cartoons..a new MGM deal? Kino is the absolute best..The Chicken Chronicles....finally!
I've never seen Newman's Law before, but that trailer sold me. Looks like a lot of fun. Can't wait for its release.
Saturday's Facebook Announcement:
Brand New 4K Restoration!
Straight Shooting (1917) Starring Harry Carey, Duke R. Lee, George Berrel, Molly Malone and Hoot Gibson - Directed by John Ford.
An interesting release that I will surely buy as more John Ford/Harry Carey films are always welcome.
Agreed, Dave. I never heard of Newman's Law but the '70 aesthetic in the trailer is definitely in my wheelhouse!
I've been getting into Murnau's non-NOSFERATU material lately courtesy of a Eureka! box set, and I enjoyed TARTUFFE a lot. Anyone having difficulty accepting Emil Jannings as an actor of significant range ought to compare this film to THE LAST LAUGH.
And Faust for more Murnau. Then explore Variete and The Blue Angel...
A THOUSAND CLOWNS was announced months ago.
Funny thing is, I asked about it a couple years ago and they said they didn’t have it, but a great surprise when they announced it. I love the film. Very funny. Jason Robards was hilarious!
As a community college humanities professor for nearly 30 years, Moliere's Tartuffe has long been a staple in my coverage of 1the 7th and 18th century Western performing arts. I cannot wait to purchase this title!
Well I just went on the Blu-ray. com site and preordered a half dozen upcoming Kino titles at Amazon. Usually wait til the price drops, but I don't believe that's an option if we want these titles to keep coming. I did notice earlier in this thread that one of my favorite films Away All Boats was mentioned as one of the only Universal Vista Vision films. I surely would like to replace my pan and scan GoodTimes DVD that I bought 30 some years ago.
I imagine HTF would have preferred if you had used their pre-order links to support this site rather than Blu-ray-dot-com, but so be it...
I say we tar & feather him.
Great to see more German silents on the way! Tartuffe is a fun and unexpected film by Murnau, as it's a comedy. It almost seems like something by Lubitsch from the same period. I'll admit that I have the Masters of Cinema "Early Murnau" box from a few years ago with this (as well as Phantom, The Haunted Castle, The Last Laugh, and The Finances of the Grand Duke), but if it's the same transfer, it's quite beautiful. If Flicker Alley just reissued Phantom on Blu-ray, that would cover the whole set (though, it wouldn't surprise me if they let it expire since it's the only Murnau Foundation restoration they have compared to Kino Lorber having all the rest).
Also glad to see the Pink Panther cartoons are getting a boxed edition. I'll be ordering that along with the other two DePatie-Freleng sets.
And it would probably be more support for Kino if you just buy directly from them, rather than supporting Amazon.
Warners distributed it overseas, so it was likely remastered from a UK element.
Actually, I asked the former Insider about this years ago, and he said it didn't matter as long as we buy them. I was surprised by the answer, and am not sure if that is still the case.
I've owned a Blu of FAUST for years, from Masters Of Cinema / Eureka! Totally cool movie. And talk about an interesting role for Jannings…!
