Our first look at Sunrise Silents’ DVD-R edition of One Arabian Night reveals a video transfer from a 16mm reduction print.
The disc features musical accompaniment performed on a MIDI-based synthesizer.
The disc also includes a Lupino Lane comedy (written and directed by Roscoe Arbuckle), transferred from a good 16mm reduction print, the fourth episode of the serial Mystery of the Double Cross (1917), transferred from a good 16mm reduction print, a short sound-film novelty featuring Reginald Denny, Bobby Vernon and Anita Page, among others, transferred from what appears to be a very-good 35mm print, a Pola Negri photo gallery (33 images), a glass-slide gallery (22 images), and an introduction to Pola Negri by Rich Olivieri.
SUNRISE SILENTS has discontinued business and this edition is OUT-OF-PRINT.
