I have the inferior R4 version of this movie and am thinking of replacing it with the R1 Image disc. The problem is that there are two more versions (both R2) available that may be even more interesting. The first is a 2-disc special edition with the following features: Commentary Track Trailer of 'Shadow Of The Vampire' Special Footage (Narrative Depiction of Supplementary Images of Original Sketches, Artworks and Postcards - Basis for Film Production Theatrical Posters of The Time Origins of Vampires Nosferatu's Controversy Sepia & Black and White Versions On Separate Discs The second is a version from the British Film Institute with these features: Video Essay by Professor Sir Christoper Frayling (Author Of 'Vampires') On-screen Biographies of FW Murnau and James Bernard (Who Composed the New Music Score) Also, on their website, the BFI say the following: "The print has been restored by the MŸnchner Filmmuseum and the Cineteca del Comune di Bologna, and replicates the tints and tones revealed in the nitrate original. Presented by Photoplay Productions, this version also features a new music score by James Bernard, who scored many of the classic Hammer horror movies - including the 1958 Dracula." Does anybody have one or both versions I've mentioned above and/or can anyone comment on the quality of the transfers/special features? Or should I still go with the Image R1 disc?
