Triple Feature
Drama Classics

Volume 8
(1925-1926)

 

Contents: The Lost World (1925), The Eagle (1925) and The Lodger (1926).

Navarre Corporation has released a line of budget triple feature DVDs whose collective content spans from the silent era to latter day camp classics. The quality ranges from the usual budget video 16mm reduction prints to transfers of surprising quality (for budget video) from 35mm prints.

This collection is of drama films of unrelated genres. — Carl Bennett

This budget collection, with its passable transfers of substandard 16mm prints, will be just watchable and thus a good buy for the undiscerning, but quality-conscious collectors will want to bypass it in favor of the better DVD editions that are available, especially of The Lost World.
