Availability of Asta Nielsen's Danish Film Institute DVD

Unread post by p00gz » Thu Oct 19, 2017 11:33 pm

Hello All,

I've been searching for Asta Nielsen's Danish Film Institute compilation: http://www.silentera.com/video/collNielsenDanishHV.html with the Abyss and The Black Dream but it has been perpetually out of stock for over a year via the Filmmuseum and pretty much anywhere else. Does anyone know why and if it will ever return? Is there another source somewhere? thanks!

Atlantis is also out of print from DFI - one can only hope that they're preparing new elements for a Blu-ray release of these.

There is one used copy of the Nielsen set listed on amazon UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nielsen-Collec ... ta+Nielsen" target="_blank

Are these all in the Public Domain? So I could sell someone a copy of the DVD?

The scores are not public domain.

Good point. Anyway normally I wouldn't like to undermine such efforts.

Although, with DVD Shrink, one can easily remove all audio, so if the OP really needs to find it, send me a message. If it's chronically out of print, then I'm not robbing them of their dues.
