Christine,

:D I have news of another Flicker Alley release, and a huge unexpected surprise. The cats out of the bag on this one. David Shepard confirms that Flicker Alley will be releasing the recently restored CHICAGO (1927) with Phyllis Haver as sprightly Roxie Hart, this Summer! It has never been on VHS let along DVD before. Here is a quote:

"CHICAGO will be released (most probably) early summer. Mont Alto is doing the score -- I have heard a recording from a live performance, and it's superb. There will be two outstanding bonus films with it -- you can learn about them later on.

Through the courtesy of the DeMille Estate, we were able to master in HD directly from the (perfect) nitrate but we did not leave UCLA selling apples on the corner.

However, it is still quite up in the air whether or not we will follow through with a B-R release."
