    Just an FYI post to let folks know that a couple of rare DeMille silents are coming on DVD in October: DON'T CHANGE YOUR HUSBAND and THE GOLDEN CHANCE. Amazon is now listing them as a double feature (mistitled "THE GOLDEN CHAN" for the second feature)

    I discovered them by accident, and I haven't seen a peep about them in new listings anywhere. I'm sure that some of our classic film fans at HTF will be interested in them, and the good folks who are responsible for getting them onto DVD (such as David Shepard) can use our support by purchasing them!

    You'll be interested to know that Image website posted 2 more double features:

    Why Change Your Wife? (1920) / Miss Lulu Bett (1921) is coming on November 29.

    Old Wives for New (1918) / The Whispering Chorus (1918) is coming December 27.

    Miss Lulu Bett was directed by Cecil's brother, William C. de Mille.

    Ten Commandments is with Paramount who so far released no silent films. Not even Oscar winner Wings... You have a better chance importing expensive (over $30) Japanese DVD which is probably sourced from VHS or Laserdisc.
