Masters Of Cinema BluRays Lubitsch Keaton

PostFri Jul 07, 2017 9:31 am

On facebook, Eureka/Masters Of Cinema confirmed Blu-Ray releases of the LUBITSCH IN BERLIN box (which was release via Kino in the US), and a box of Keaton's THE GENERAL, SHERLOCK JR, and STEAMBOAT BILL JR from the Cohen 4K restorations. Lubitsch in September, Keaton in October.

Future US releases via Kino, Cohen? Or do I shell out for the UK releases since I've got the Region-Free player? Decisions, decisions....
