Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1419 Warde Richard III on DVD

>The Warde Richard III will be out June 26 (as will the Janning Othello)
>from Kino on June 26.

Please note that only the Richard III will be available on video and
DVD.  The Jannings Othello (which is already available on VHS) will be
released only on DVD by Kino.  The Kino DVD has a number of interesting
bonuses, however, including the following silents:

Duel Scene from Macbeth (1905)
Taming of the Shrew (1908)
Romeo turns Bandit (1910) (n.b., I don't know about you, but I certainly
am intrigued)
Desdemona (1911)

The DVD release of Richard III includes:

Rediscovering Richard ( a 17 minute documentary on the Warde R3)
Frederick Warde speaking on Richard III

It is not clear whether or not the video version of Richard III will
include the bonus materials or not.  I should have stock in hand within
the next two weeks, and would be happy to update any interested parties
when I am able to confirm.
