That is fabulous news to learn that THE EAGLE
has been restored! I have the Thames version you produced, on Laser-disc, and I thought it already looked great! How Wonderful to learn that more has been done! I am a massive Laura La Plante Fan, and I just love SMOULDERING FIRES
what a great film! Pauline Frederick gives such a stunning performance! It's fantastic to hear that both it, along with THE GOOSE WOMAN
are being restored too! Wow!
Ed, and I are big John Gilbert fans, and I'm so excited about BARDELY'S THE MAGNIFICENT (1926)
, having been found, and being restored! I keep hoping that Warner's will likewise restore King Vidor's HIS HOUR (1924), Monta Bell's MAN WOMAN, AND SIN (1927)
and Roy Hill's THE COSSACKS (1928).
The later since I am also such a huge Renee Adoree fan! Do they have nice prints to work with of these films?
I remember you using the one with Jeanne Eagels in HOLLYWOOD.
But I don't think HIS HOUR
had been found yet, and there was no mention of THE COSSACKS?
I did see Vidor's WINE OF YOUTH (1924)
with it's incredible cast, and of course I love Eleanor Boradman, but not much has been with any of these titles as far as I know?
And Fox offering us both restored prints of STREET ANGEL
, and LUCKY STAR!
That is indeed a dream come true! Hopefully, some time in the future maybe WHAT PRICE GLORY?
and some of the other Raoul Walsh titles such as THE RED DANCE
as well? Maybe Howard Hawks FAZIL?
and Murna's CITY GIRL?
If only Paramount would only do the same with the Von Sternberg's, and Rowland V. Lee's BARBED WIRE (1927)
with Pola Negri, and Clive Brook! Such a powerfully moving film, and it is just not being seen! What a wonderous visit this has been! No wonder I can't Sleep! Thank you so very much Sir!
