Lots of new releases, some of them have been on our wishlists for years! Let’s dive in.
Hear Me Talk About My DVD Release
I was invited to talk about my release of Kidnapped: A Complete 1917 Night at the Movies on the Nitrateville Radio Podcast, which you can listen to right here!
I usually like to run and hide after podcasting and I usually sound like I just downed fifteen espressos so excuse my hyperactive voice. But enjoy. (Hides under table.)
Here’s my DVD, isn’t it spiffy? You can purchase it here.
Old Ironsides and You Never Know Women on DVD and Bluray from Kino!
Kino is continuing its campaign of releasing Paramount silents in HD. I know fans have been calling for an Old Ironsides release for years so this is very welcome news. You Never Know Women is not quite as famous but it’s one of the many, many, many Russian-themed romances Hollywood produced in the 1920s and was directed by William Wellman.
You pre-order You Never Know Women here. It will be released October 23, 2018.
You can pre-order Old Ironsides here. It will be released October 30, 2018.
Hollywood (1980) Streaming on Amazon
The miniseries Hollywood is almost forty years old and is responsible for a great number of silent film fans discovering the art. Alas, it has only been available on VHS and laserdisc but six episodes from the series are now available to stream from Amazon Prime. Directed by Kevin Browlow and David Gill, it features beautiful music from Carl Davis, a passionate affection for the silent era and interviews with industry veterans.
This streaming license is good in the USA. If you can, please let me know if it is available from other legal streaming services in other markets. Here’s hoping more episodes are added in the future.
In other news, Ronaldo the kitten is almost six pounds and continues to wreck the joint with his antics. His main goal in life is the theft and consumption of Nilla Wafers, as well as monitoring all hummingbird activity and ambushing his adult kitty friends. He also has a rather extensive wardrobe of collars and bows and kitty bells, which he has figured out how to silence when he is stalking.
