Fantastic! Maybe I'm overlooking this info, but what score accompanies the US version?

Three scores! Never heard the name of Johannes Contag, but I'm curious to listen to this contribution aside of the new Horne score.

The Contag score is terrific. It was commissioned for NZ festival screenings of the new restoration. I'm surprised and delighted that it's being released.

(Now if only someone could release Lawrence Arabia's superb Lonesome score!)

I love having multiple scores with silents. It's definitely the best extra for them. The same with their Faust Blu-ray.

I only wish MoC had included the two scores from the Criterion release of the The Last Command on their Blu-ray release.
