Director: William Wellman
Starring: Florence Vidor, Clive Brook, Lowell Sherman, El Brendel, Roy Stewart, Sidney Bracey

Silent / 71 min / NR / B&W

Synopsis: Brand new HD master from a 4K of the 35mm Nitrate Tinted Print and 35mm Safety Dupe Negative by Paramount Pictures Archives. You Never Know Women is a thrilling romance that constructs a combustible love triangle between a Russian dancer, a handsome escape artist, and a wealthy broker. Vera Janova (Florence Vidor) is on her way to star in a Russian vaudeville revue when a falling girder nearly kills her. A construction worker saves her life, but before she wakes up the conniving Eugene Foster (Lowell Sherman) takes Vera into his arms, pretending to be the one who rescued her. Susceptible to Eugene’s oily charms, Vera begins ignoring Ivan Norodin (Clive Brook), a Houdini-like master of illusion who had loved her his whole life. Racked with jealousy, Norodin plans the ultimate illusion, one that could change their lives forever. Filmed with knockabout energy by the great director William A. Wellman (The Ox-Bow Incident), You Never Know Women is a silent era gem.

Old Ironsides (1926) (Kino Classics)
Blu-ray and DVD Street Date: October 30, 2018
Blu-ray SRP: $29.95
DVD SRP: $19.95

Director: James Cruze
Starring: Wallace Beery, Esther Ralston, George Bancroft, Charles Farrell, Charles Hill Mailes, Johnnie Walker

Silent / 114 min / NR / B&W

Synopsis: Newly Remastered in HD from a 2K scan from 35mm film elements preserved by the Library of Congress. Old Ironsides is a grand adventure on the high seas directed with flair by James Cruze (The Covered Wagon). It is 1798, and the young U.S. government is desperate to drive the Barbary pirates out of the Mediterranean, so they build and launch the USS Constitution into the fight. A farm boy (Charles Farrell) wants to join the battle, but a hard-living and fast-talking boatswain (Wallace Beery) liquors the boy up until he boards the merchant ship Esther. It doesn’t hurt that the ship owner’s pretty daughter (Esther Ralston) will also be on board. This ragtag group embarks on a thrillingly unexpected journey that lands them in the middle of the pirate war, with little hope of escape. Though praised by critics upon its release as “a glorious story of a glorious achievement” (Photoplay),  it sunk at the box office. But in this new restoration provided by the Library of Congress, it is time to view the film anew as a thrilling and technically astonishing achievement.

Special Features: Audio Commentary by Film Historian Toby Roan | Booklet Essay by Film Historian Peter Labuza | Featuring the New York premiere score by J.S. Zamecnik and Hugo Riesenfield, adapted for piano by Rodney Sauer
