We have viewed many of the films from this 2002 Kino DVD boxset. We have confirmed that this edition of Broken Blossoms is virtually identical to the 2001 edition reviewed here.

An obvious attraction of this boxset is the additional content in the form of supplemental materials, and the compilation of early Griffith Biograph short films. For reviews and notes on the discs, see our individual pages on these films on DVD home video: Biograph Shorts, The Birth of a Nation, Intolerance, Broken Blossoms and Orphans of the Storm.

If you prefer DVD to Blu-ray Disc, this boxset is still recommended by us.
