Is this re-release any different than the original disc?

Not the answer i was looking for, but i know someone must have answers.



at amazon...Kino's DVD features a fine window-boxed transfer from a good-looking master (with some scenes taken from inferior source materials) and a moody modern synthesizer and percussion score by Michael Polher. Supplements include the 1914 single-reel Western By the Sun's Rays (a badly preserved and clichéd curiosity with Chaney as a sneak villain), a short video tour of Chaney's makeup box and costume from The Penalty, two and a half minutes of surviving footage from the lost Chaney film The Miracle Man, an essay by Chaney biographer Michael F. Blake, two trailers, and various stills, photos, and production materials. --Sean Axmaker

I've had that disc (with the same cover/features) for a couple of years now. Looks like it was just a price reduction (it was originally $29.99 and now is $19.99), not a new release.

Anyway, as far as finding it "on the shelves" -- there aren't many B&M stores that carry silent Kino films. Try Borders or Virgin Megastores.

Can't you order it directly from Kino's website? They're having a holiday sale and it's only $14.95 now.

But I'd second Borders for a B&M.

The only B&M place that has it is Borders. Metropolis is probably the only Kino release you'd find in a place like BB.
