Just a quick note to say that I found this book to be extremely well-done and fascinating. I've always had an interest in the technical aspects of early cinema, and this item was right up my alley.

Re: THE IRON HORSE (1924) BD coming from Twilight Time (11/20/18)

I can highly recommend Edition Filmmuseum.

Top notch.

My favorite so far is THE STUDENT OF PRAGUE (1913) two disc set.

I have the above linked 1890s disc and like it a lot also.
