Thanks for the link Michigan. I read that "Murders in the Zoo " (1933) is definitely the best of the bunch. It's like the Fox Horror Movie Collection which includes "Dragonwyck" (1946) and two other low-budget films, the Mankiewicz film was THE reason for buying the set.

I'd love to see Night Flight, I've read so much about it.

I think the Dragonwyck-as-horror is exactly why I rail against so many corporate rightsholders - they're warehouses, not holders. Not keepers. We see so many misguided labeling efforts from them, probably spending weeks of 'committee time' instead of just an hour and a half of WATCHING the film! Jeepers. And yet these people are deciding the life and death of so many classic films. I'm so happy that the TCM wiz-kids do some real homework and give us so many lost gems.

I was getting mixed up, The Last Flight is what I meant but I would like to see Night Flight too. Is Night Flight never aired on TCM?

As far as I know, Night Flight (1933-Clarence Brown) with Clark Gable (and a supporting cast to die for) has never aired on American television due to copyright issues that Fernando cited. The Last Flight (1931-William Dieterle) has been broadcast several times on TCM.

I believe that the issues are not considered worth the money by the corporate powers that be to pursue this through the courts again.

I think we all are sitting in stunned silence at the Vidors and Von Stroheim's being dumped into the archive. Maybe The Crowd is next!

Justin,

:? They won't release THE CROWD through the Archive I don't feel. Unless it's something like the new CARY GRANT THE EARLY YEARS set, along with THE BIG PARADE and maybe SHOW PEOPLE. It's no coincidence that you haven't seen any Silents with Carl Davis scores, or with ties to Thames/Photoplay Productions and Kevin Brownlow through Warner Archive.

THE MERRY WIDOW release is slightly disappointing, because I was hoping for a newer restoration and either the Robert Israel, or Maud Neilssen Orchestra's scores that were prepared recently. Also I am wondering if they used dual-layer media?

I'm heartened to see so many silents being released, thanks for bringing it to our attention Jeffrey.
