This film is TRACKED BY THE POLICE (1927) and has the best image quality I've seen. It's about half the length of the full feature but I have an old Grapevine Video edition so I replaced the footage with better quality from the abridgement. I added a new music track too. A very good film, it was said to be a top moneymaker for Warners and may have had a Vitaphone track, now apparently lost.

You can see my re-edit version on our FB group SILENT FILMS TODAY (link below).

This guy has begun to have the obvious issues due to his postings. I hope that he manage to overcome them.

Rin-Tin-Tin seems to get along well with
Jason Robards Sr.. There were stories of
Rinty snapping at co-stars that got too
friendly.

Jaws of Steel (1927) is noted online as
existing in two archives (one print in the
Nederlands and the other at LOC). Any
restoration plans? Is it already on Blu-Ray
or DVD?

Radiotelefonia, speaking of silent Warners,
what has become of the battered 16mm print
of The Crimson City (1928) that was found
with the Metropolis footage?

It is still there in the museum... until Warners makes it available... I would prefer for them to stop treating the 700 Argentinean films of which they have ownerships of the prints as garbage to be disposed, although they are in the public domain, and put them on the air on TCM.
