    Interesting aspect ratio. Possibly not from original elements. Should be 1.19. Early sound on film.

    That's what the liner notes credited. I didn't actually measure it myself. It could be closer to that than 1.37:1.

    This is interesting that this title and Blackmail are coming out! Glad to see it coming as I just watched them on some pretty bad transfers. I didn’t know they were cited as pirated even though they are from a known company that does licensed releases.

    I thought Murder and Blackmail were pretty well done films. Looking forward to seeing them on these new blu rays!

    The old french Canal dvd was 1.33:1. That may be the only element they have.

    The 54 minute documentary that was announced in the pre-release press release isn't here. A bit disappointed. The film looks surprisingly good considering how old it is but it could have done with a bit more TLC and restoration. I have no idea what the source is for this as it doesn't state.

    I got my copies of Murder and Blackmail arrived today. The first disc of Blackmail had dislodged from the spindle so it was loose and sliding around. Luckily the printed side was sliding against the other disc. The play side looked ok. I’ll be checking out the films shortly. :)

    Watched Murder last night - by far the best I’ve ever seen this film look!
