Re: It seems Grapevine Video is still with us.
- Brooksians; This is great news, but I wonder what condition the "Beggars"
print is in and what kind of music there is; I'm tempted to get it as the one I
have is an eBay bootleg with a random Classical music soundtrack that owes
more to film-to-tape home movie dupes than knowledge of silent film music
- Their VHS transfers weren't all that great so if you can find a
better print from Kino or some other company you'd be better off.
To be honest I wasn't paying attention to the musical track.
Back in 1989 I'd purchased a copy of Pandoras Box from Movies
Unlimited that still holds up fairly well. Soundtrack was piano

- I already bought those Brooksie DVD's two years ago, Olive. I guess
that Jack Hardy had a few left over that he wanted to sell.
