  1. Do you know if it's only going to be clearer than the David Shepard restorations or are there anything else I have to count on (I mean new scenes, or something like that)? And it's a pity it's only on Blu-Ray, I have no player :/

    1. It's a DVD/Blu-Ray combo so it should have both versions.
      I'm not sure about the quality (perhaps someone else would know) but they should be clearer than the '90s restorations. The Arte version of the new restorations were released in France last year. I'm not sure if the U.S. versions will be different.

    2. Wow, that's good news! Can I have another question? I know there was a BFI restoration not so long ago, as well. Is it the same thing? Or is it more similar to the 1990s restoration? Do you know anything about it...?

  2. I always chuckle at Chicago 1907 founders Spoor and Anderson calling 'S & A' studios Essanay. Ha ha

  3. I only hope that "Lodestone Studios" in "His New Job" first intertitle was corrected.
    It was not corrected in the Spanish release.
