Well, I’m either the first or second to pledge. Now let me go find out what I’m helping to buy.

Happy new year, Ed!

I'm in.

Am I imagining this, or is this possibly missing 1 reel of its 5?

Always interested in Carlyle Blackwell films!

I’m surprised none of our collectors has turned up some color poster art for this movie.

Very cool cover. I love the dark background contrasting yet complementing the broodingly-coloured portrait. Kudos to whoever designed it!

Funded! Congratulations, Ed.

This doesn’t mean that you should not contribute if you have not already.

What I like to do -- and no one tell Ed -- is to add a small but random number of pennies to my Kickstarter contribution. The total amount pledged only shows in whole dollars, but the end result is that Ed gets a slightly different total than he expected.
