Subject:        Shakespeare Silents on Video

I've just learned unofficially that Kino Video is planning to release
the newly discovered silent 1912 RICHARD III later this year.  It will
also release Buchowetski's silent 1922 OTHELLO starring Emil Jannings,
which is already available on VHS.  I do not know whether these will be
in VHS or DVD formats (or both).  Kino has a reputation for excellent
video transfers, so this is good news for fans of Shakespeare in silent
film.

Kino's website (which makes no mention of these future releases) is
http://www.kino.com/ .  I have no connection with the company.

Cheers,
Douglas Lanier
