This release had totally passed me by. Thanks for bringing it to attention, and a very nice review, too.

TANGLED TANGOIST is one of my favorites. One reason it was not included on the DVD is that the only print in a US archive is at MoMA (with German titles, I think), and the films on the DVD are all sourced from 35mm at the Library of Congress. Steve Massa and I have programmed TANGOIST at our Cruel and Unusual Comedy series a couple times over the past several years, and it's always a hit.

Tony's excellent DVD is also available on Amazon here, BTW.
