This DVD-R edition has been mastered from an excellent 35mm fine-grain preservation positive from the Library of Congress. Missing footage has been bridged with expository intertitles. Intended to discourage video bootlegging, occasionally the website address for the society or “cine” will appear in the lower part of the picture. We wish that video publishers did not feel compelled to do this as it is distracting from the viewing experience for the collector of the disc.
The film is presented with a prequel of newsreel footage of Clara Kimball Young attending a premiere for What No Man Knows, with Harry Garson and Dorothy Wallace.
The film is accompanied by a music score performed on a Barton pipe organ by Bob Vaughn.
