Coming to DVD and Blu-ray October 20th from Kino Classics!

Three Tod Browning classics in two separate releases!

Outside the Law (1920)
Directed by Tod Browning
Starring Priscilla Dean and Lon Chaney

New 4K Restoration by Universal Pictures!

While under contract at Universal Studios, Tod Browning crafted a series of melodramas with strong female protagonists, women on the wrong side of the law, who stood defiantly against the men who tried to control them. No actress better personified this tough, glamorous anti-hero than Priscilla Dean (Drifting, White Tiger). In Outside the Law, Dean plays hard-boiled jewel thief Molly Madden. When her father is framed for murder by Black Mike Sylva (Lon Chaney), Molly partners with safecracker Dapper Bill (Wheeler Oakman) to stage a double-cross of their own. Outside the Law was Browning’s second film with actor Lon Chaney, whose gifts for elaborate makeup and ruthless villainy would flower under Browning’s direction, setting the stage for a series of monstrous characterizations that would revolutionize the melodrama and lay the foundations of the American horror film.

Special features:
*Audio commentary by film historian Anthony Slide
*Musical score by Anton Sanko
*Alternate ending
*Footage comparison
---------------------------------------

Drifting (1923) and White Tiger (1923)
Directed by Tod Browning
Starring Priscilla Dean and Wallace Beery

After the runaway success of Outside the Law, director Tod Browning re-teamed with star Priscilla Dean on Drifting, another hard-boiled crime picture flavored with Orientalism. Set in a remote Chinese village, and staged on an epic scale, Dean stars as Cassie Cook, an opium trafficker caught between an undercover government agent (Matt Moore) and a fellow smuggler (Wallace Beery). Dean may have been the star, but it is Anna May Wong (age eighteen and on the brink of stardom), who steals the show during the film’s fiery climax.
An early attempt by Browning to infuse the crime melodrama with elements of the uncanny (spurring the evolution of the American horror film), White Tiger involves a band of jewel thieves who employ a chess-playing automaton to gain entry into the homes of the wealthy. But their elaborate plans are haunted by omens, and they seem doomed to an inescapable fate. This disc also contains the only surviving footage of Browning and Dean’s 1919 The Exquisite Thief, one of the key films in establishing Dean’s persona as the glamorous jewel thief.

Special features:
• Drifting 4K Restoration by George Eastman Museum
• Audio commentary for Drifting by film historian Anthony Slide
• Musical score by Anton Sanko
• Audio commentary for White Tiger by film historian Bret Wood
• Musical score by Andrew Earle Simpson
• Fragment of the “lost” Tod Browning/Priscilla Dean film The Exquisite Thief

These silents sound great, I actually have White Tiger on an Alpha Video DVD. Is that one also getting a 4K restoration or just a "regular" 1080p release ? Im looking forward to it either way :)

I would be BEYOND thrilled if KINO could one day reacquire the rights to ALIBI, or get the rights to THE RACKET. (1920s).

there is a film, THE PATRIOT (1928) that is missing. It would be great if KINO could one day get the trailer and extant fragments to include on a disc like they have with the Todd Browning silent. (But only if it makes sense for them.)

Babylon Berlin (Seasons 1 & 2)
16 Episodes | 4-Disc Set
Written and directed by Tom Tykwer, Henk Handloegten, Achim von Borries

Babylon Berlin is one of the most critically acclaimed European television shows of the decade, a sumptuously paranoid thriller set in 1929 Berlin, a metropolis in turmoil. In Seasons 1 and 2, the glittering excesses of the city’s nightlife sparkle while an army of the impoverished strives for a better life. Organized crime and political extremists take advantage, extending their power throughout town. Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch, The Reader), a young cop from Cologne, is transferred to the vice squad in Berlin, which is headed by the seemingly affable Bruno Wolter (Peter Kurth, Good Bye Lenin!). Charlotte Ritter (Liv Lisa Fries, The Wave) is a stenographer for the homicide department who lives a double life in the city’s cabarets, a valuable resource for Rath’s investigations. He is confronted with a tangled web of corruption, forcing him into an existential conflict as he is torn between loyalty and uncovering the truth. Then a freight train from the Soviet Union arrives, which appears to hold the key to political power — and is a deadly trap for anyone trying to approach it.

Special features:
*Behind-the-scenes footage
*Limited edition O-Card
*Making-of documentary (Blu-ray only)
*Optional English subtitles
*Trailers

This series is highly recommended. The recreation of Weimar Berlin is breathtaking. Compelling characterizations and complex plots.

KL Insider, will this release be in German and not dubbed? I see in the description it says "Optional English Subtitles".

Is it just me, or does Michael Caine look more like Dean Martin in that Gambit poster?
