    It's only a week and a day away, yet it doesn't seem to have any reviews yet.

    Does anyone know of a site with a review on it?

    Thanks for that Mark : looks like a great set and international buyers will be glad to know there is no RCE on this unlike Warner's 1933 Little Women (originally produced by RKO).

    Any one else have reviews?

    Will the HTF have an official review?

    My copy arrived in the mail today (along with Looney Tunes: Golden Collection). It's going to take me a while to savor everything on these discs, but I'm chomping at the bit to get started. [​IMG] What a fabulous end-of-year treat from the studio (to say nothing of the Humphrey Bogart titles hitting shelves next week).

    No, nothing as obvious as The Phantom of the Opera, or even as subtle as on the Chaplin discs that I could detect. I think you're on firm ground here!

    I have the Chaney Collection, and it's quite stunning. There's no PAL conversion problem here. Nice, clean NTSC transfers, with LAUGH, CLOWN, LAUGH and THE UNKNOWN looking exceptionally good. Source material on ACE OF HEARTS is a bit worn, but not bad for a film that's 82 (!) years old...

    Michael Blake's commentaries are amazing. His insights into Chaney's genius are often provocative and profound.

    The most magical part of the collection is Kevin Brownlow's brilliant documentary. That alone is worth the price of the release.

    Stunning. Another set of kudos to WB for a great release.
