Triple Feature
Drama Classics

Volume 7
(1921-1925)

 

Contents: The Kid (1921), The Extra Girl (1923) and The Joyless Street (1925).

Navarre Corporation has released a line of budget triple feature DVDs whose collective content spans from the silent era to latter day camp classics. The quality ranges from the usual budget video 16mm reduction prints to transfers of surprising quality (for budget video) from 35mm prints.

This collection focuses on drama and comedy-drama films. — Carl Bennett

All of the films on this disc are accompanied by a compilation of prerecorded Mozart orchestral recordings. No effort has been made to synchronize the recordings which randomly play through the film.

It is odd to have two well-known comedies on a collection entitled Drama Classics, but we’ll take them as they come for this modest cost. The excellent prints utilized for The Kid and The Extra Girl make this disc a bargain, and the print of The Joyless Street was passable until Edition Filmmuseum released an excellent PAL edition.
