D'oh! Sorry Darren!

Too bad the DVD Price Search site isn't a bit more far-ranging, the cheapest price for FORD AT FOX on there is $73. I'll have to have a closer look at that HamiltonBook.com site.

No biggie. I added several more discs to the order. I wanted to see them for years so it worked out well.

They won't ship to Canada, Stephen.

The Valentinos are both under $15/each too. I highly recommend this sale. It will only help with encouraging KINO to continue releasing silents that have long been unjustly neglected or sitting in the vaults of Paramount. The more, the merrier.

Thanks, just purchased the two Fields films. Comes out to $28.98 USD with shipping (which should come out to about $36 CAD). I was waiting for Amazon to lower their price to about 20 bucks a piece (plus shipping) before buying them, so this is better. Now I can continue reading The W.C. Fields Films by James L Neibaur.

This probably doesn't help you in Canada since I assume it is for US shipping only, but shipping is free if your order is $50 or more. I think shipping is fairly steep if you don't hit that threshold, so once you get in the neighborhood of $40 or so worth of discs it's probably worth seeing if adding a disc is actually a better deal (again, I assume only in the US).

You are correct: free shipping only applies in the USA.

Not to mention that Kino has the new 3d BluRay of "The Maze" at a discount also.

I went ahead and ordered nearly all the silents that they have a discount on.

And also all of the recent 3-D restorations.

Phew! Now to watch them all!

Me too. I hope this means they'll release another batch of silents. Perhaps this time focusing on the several restored films of Pola Negri. Or one more Swanson – Fine Manners. Though I don't recall if that one's 16mm or 35mm or if it's even been restored.

I asked "Kino Insider" (on HTF) a few days ago whether more silents were in the works. He replied that the upcoming titles (OLD IRONSIDES and YOU NEVER KNOW WOMEN) were the last from the present agreement. I then expressed hope that another agreement for more titles will be forthcoming...so, it can't hurt for interested parties to go to HTF and speak up if you'd like to see more.

Kino Insider can always check in here to see all the enthusiasm! :wink: In any case, it seems like many of us purchased most or all of the silents released as part of this deal in the past year or so, which one hopes is encouraging enough to prompt serious interest in another agreement that will continue with Bow (Kid Boots!), Negri, Swanson, and other surprises like the Wellman. Silents on BD seem to have momentum now so here's to hoping KINO is motivated and Paramount is willing, yes?

I concur with your suggestion for Changing Husbands, Danny, along with the gentleman that requests a Broken Blossoms BD once a year. The latter may be much more likely, however, if the Pickford Foundation gets around to restoring it with a 4K scan as they will be doing with Griffith's Lady of the Pavements sometime this or next year.

Danny, I just took your advice and did just that. I encourage others to do the same.

Fortunately, most of these (and all BDs) can be had for cheaper on Amazon, and KINO's silents were all cheaper during their sale that concludes tonight. TCM also offers no free shipping option if you spend this or that much either. Quite disappointing.

Kino-Lorber offers free shipping to Canada, but only on orders of $100 or more. I have a friend that usually likes to go in on these orders with me, so it usually works out alright (he might only get a few discs, but it still beats buying titles I'm half-hearted about just to get free shipping, which I have done in the past).

Thanks! I purchased my copy yesterday. What a difference Blu-Ray will be from the U-matic tape I first viewed this film with!
