When Knighthood Was In Flower Bluray July 25

It's official: the new Undercrank Productions restoration of Marion Davies in When Knighthood Was In Flower on Blu-ray/DVD will be released by on July 25. Amazon pre-ordering is not possible, but the Amazon page is live here.

Also available on Amazon on July 25 will be releases of The Bride's Play and Beauty's Worth, released by Undercrank Prods. in association with Ed Lorusso. If you backed Ed's Kickstarters for these two films, I can tell you that the Undercrank DVD edtions have a much higher bitrate and slightly improved sharpness, and also have chapter stops. Also, on The Bride's Play I have reinstated the film's original pink/blue/amber tinting scheme based on tinting slugs in the preservation neg, and on Beauty's Worth I did scene-by-scene exposure correction on most of the film. Ed's backers will be getting a discount code for these titles. Amazon pages for these two DVDs will go live in a couple weeks.

Kudos to all who pledged, supported and worked on these projects!

Well, I guess we all know where I stand on Marion Davies films!

Marlene's covers are vibrant. Love 'em!

Any chance any discs will be available for purchase at Capitolfest (maybe through Jack Theakson)?

Didn't know there was a "dealers room" at Capitolfest.

At least last year there was.

Yes, they started it after Syracuse ended.
There is a very large dealer room there now.

Any chance if sending some discs?

I don't know if this is possible. I can't attend Capitolfest this year and don't know anyone with a table.

I have been in touch with Art Pierce, and have arranged for this! There will be copies of KNIGHTHOOD available for purchase at Capitolfest – as well as THE THREE MUSKETEERS and FOUND AT MOSTLY LOST. Thanks for the suggestion, Agnes!

When Knighthood Was in Flower is available now on Amazon as are Ben's editions of my Kickstarter projects, The Bride's Play and Beauty's Worth.

I have not seen the latter films but I understand Ben has sharpened the video image and re-instated the original tinting for The Bride's Play.

Perfect, I just posted the 3-way link along with a rave recommendatory writeup on the KNIGHTHOOD thread at Blu-ray.com.

I picked up Ben's DVDs of both THE BRIDE'S PLAY and BEAUTY'S WORTH and they both look even better than Ed's original versions, which were no slouches to start with. I would highly recommend that the rest of us Kickstarter backers do likewise. I'm giving the Kickstarter versions as gifts to friends who will appreciate them.
