WOW!!
This isn't my favorite genre, but I may have to make an exception in this case.

Looking forward to this one. I do hope The Last Warning (1928) gets a similar release. The restoration's already been done, and it looks just as visually spectacular.

It looks wonderful. Can't wait to get a copy. Aren't we so lucky these days with so many films being done up!

Picture looks great. Will have to hear the actual disc to judge the sound. But an amazing release nevertheless.

Anyone know if this will be from the print previously issued by Kino or the negative that was preserved in an archive years ago?

A great film. I hope to get this as soon as released.

Edit:
From what I've read on other forums, Curtis Harrington used material from the Library of Congress which holds a negative and lavender positive.

That's most impressive, considering that Mr. Harrington has been dead for over 10 years ....

That says it's coming from Sony, not Cohen... which could well mean the Columbia remake from 1962, not the Whale.

It says James Whale is the director and the description says it's the 4K Cohen restoration.

Yes, it does, but we don't know how the listing got that information or how accurate it is, if the releasing label is not Cohen.

Deep Discount's listing says Momentum, which does seem to be related to Cohen in some way.
