This budget collection has been predominantly mastered from 16mm reduction prints. For our reviews of the individual silent films, see the The Three Musketeers on home video, Robin Hood on home video, The Thief of Bagdad on home video, The Beloved Rogue on home video and The Iron Mask on home video pages.

The silent films are accompanied by predominantly from preexisting monaural recordings, which begs the question why St. Clair Vision thinks that 5.1 surround sound is justified, other than to dupe an unknowing consumer into thinking they are getting a disc of value.
