This DVD-R edition from Sunrise Silents has likely been mastered from a 16mm reduction print, and likely features a music score performed on a MIDI synthesizer.

Don’t be misled by statements by Sunrise Silents that their discs contain commentary on the film. As is commonly understood among DVD consumers, audio commentary is an alternative audio track that runs in conjunction with the film featuring historical and anecdotal information about the film and filmmakers. Sunrise Silents’ discs instead feature a video introduction by edition producer Rich Oliver, which is referred to as “commentary,” that serves much the same purpose as the three-minute introductions to films featured on TCM and AMC cable networks.

 
SUNRISE SILENTS has discontinued business and this edition is OUT-OF-PRINT.
