Somehow, I completely missed this Kickstarter project.

Can I still purchase the DVD Ben?

Hi there,

I am working on making the DVD available for retail sale through Amazon and anticipate it being ready by mid-July or early August. I'll definitely make an announcement when it is available. :D

I received mine on Friday, and watched it this afternoon. The feature was good for the teens. Director Alan Crosland kept the film moving. Joseph Burke overacted a little as the mean uncle Ebeneezer. I thought Raymond McKee was fine as David Balfour. Except for a scratch during the ship-board scenes, the film looks great -- and it's from 16mm! The tinting is lovely, both on the feature and the charming Little Red Riding Hood. It was interesting seeing Friends, Romans & Leo with some of the same cast (and the same director!). I guess that Edison didn't have a dedicated comedy unit.

Ben Model's music is good as usual. Thank you Fritzi for producing a fascinating and professional DVD program.

So glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I definitely agree that Burke was playing to the cheap seats in that one. Much "Curse you, Jack Dalton!" gesticulation. A darn shame about that scratch too.

I will be announcing the DVD street date soon but in the meantime, I set up a mailing list for anyone interested in JUST my crowdfunding, DVD releasing antics. (The link just goes to my blog post on the topic, no auto signups or other chicanery.)

I really enjoyed this, thank you for your hard work - it certainly paid off! I've often wondered what it would be like to see "a night at the movies" as an audience did back in the silent days, and now I can say I did!
