Ben Model’s Undercrank productions is at it again! He’s spearheading the crowdfunded release of two Douglas MacLean vehicles on home video and you can contribute to the campaign here, I already have.

Coincidentally, I just discovered that Douglas MacLean preferred to be “shot” from a high angle to “shorten his brow.” We’ll get to find that out for ourselves soon! But seriously, I am always happy to see a forgotten talent receive some attention and I am looking forward to this release very much. Ben Model always delivers a great product.

Peter Pan on Blu

The 1924 version of Peter Pan is always a crowdpleaser and now it’s being released on Bluray by Kino Lorber with an orchestra score by Philip C. Carli! The street date is July 9, 2019 and you can pre-order here.

Flicker Alley Has Been Busy!

Flicker Alley is releasing three exciting titles: a Charley Bowers set, the Russian film Fragment of an Empire and the French film L’Argent. You can learn more and pre-order the films here.

  1. The story in The Parade’s Gone By of Kevin Brownlow’s attempts to contact Douglas MacLean has stayed with me ever since I read first it. “‘I don’t think you quite understand. Mr. MacLean has lost all powers of communication’… Not only had the work of a lifetime been lost. The memories had gone, too.”
