Very happy to see Stage Struck and Manhandled (though I just bought the Manhandled DVD -_-)! More movies when you click on the link but the Swanson ones seem to be the only silents.

Looks to me as if the source lists Manhandled and Stagestruck as "Also coming in 2018 - in alphabetical order:" not as coming on 2/27. Still, good news.

I think "Special Delivery" is the 1976 film, not the silent.

I wish Kino would put the two W.C. Fields features on one double feature disc. Let's face it - most fans will buy both and I'd rather have one less blu-ray case to try and find space for. I wouldn't even mind if they charged a little more since we're getting two films.

A Blu-ray case? Try finding space for The Charlie Chaplin Archives!

I'm not interested in anything but the optimum experience, and I don't always have to have a full orchestra, but I DO insist on real music sensitively rendered.


That has puzzled me me. His scores were fine on a musical level but that $1.98 sound quality always took me out of the mood a bit until the picture pulled me back in.
