The films have been rescued already by the archives and in some cases collectors, and aren't necessarily being held hostage. What's great is that we're in an era when the opportunities for fans helping out with distribution are starting to be more possible. :)

Ben
I realize all that; I of course meant "rescue" in the sense that the fans will be able to see the film without having to travel to the LoC or an archive or a collector's basement. I'm grateful to all parties involved in the preservation of these films, including said LoC and archives and collectors. :-)

Just to remind you: if you want to contribute to this Kickstarter program, you just have six days. If you wait, Ed can charge you $100 for a copy.

I'm also a backer. Would be my first intentional silent film purchase and looking forward to Ben Model's work on it.

You've got a day to order a copy. Then the Kickstarter closes.

I was hoping that like two hundred people would overload the Kickstarter site with a minute to go, but no. Or maybe they did.

Several cancellations but no last-minute flood. That's OK. I'm surprised this one funded at all, considering the film has been around for decades, unlike my other Davies projects....

Now I just have to wait for LOC and for Ben Model (lol).....

Certainly for me, the preservation ascept of it as well as ensuring that it runs at its proper pace on home video were key selling points.

Ben Model working on it is a nice bonus.

AbZero: just to be sure you know, the film has already been preserved, by the Library of Congress.

Ed: you shouldn't be too surprised…you've built up a loyal fan-base and track record with these DVD projects, and they figure if you're doing it, it's worth pledging to. Plus there's Marion's fans who got reached via FB and Twitter who either don't have this at all or who want an upgrade to the older version.

Congrats, Ed! Looking forward to scoring this one.

Just finished watching it. Ben Model's score was good & movie looked quite good. The subplot where the Quaker servant inadvertently gets drunk was my favorite part.

Liked the staging of the charades portion as well. And that Henry Garrison character smokes in almost every scene. (The artist guy puffs from a pipe just once)

Enjoyed my copy too. I was a little impatient at the introduction of characters, but that's just me at this time. I need some "Old Tom" for my pollen allergies, I guess.
