Our first look at this NTSC collection surprises us with a range of good 16mm to excellent 35mm source prints for the silent era films.
We recommend this inexpensive three-disc Jean Renoir set for its very-good to excellent prints that are all of better quality than previous editions on budget VHS videotape.
