Wouldn't "The Man from Beyond" from Restored Serials count as the first instead? I'm confused.

A guy pointed that out a couple of posts ago. It seems that "The Man from Beyond" was released before "Sunrise" (MoC). I just want to know for sure.

Very interesting video seminar by Janet Bergstrom at UCLA called Murnau’s Sunrise: In-Camera Effects and Effects Specialists. Despite some hiccups in the beginning via some microphone red herrings, it's a good talk worthy of a DVD extra on its own.

I just received a copy of the dual-format version of this, and I'm seriously confused: it very clearly says on the back that the Blu-ray is Region B (and the DVD is Region 2). Every source I can find online says this edition is region free; can anyone confirm that it is in fact region-free, even if it's labeled as Region B on the back cover?

Part of me wants to just tear it open and try to play it, but I don't want to take it out of the shrinkwrap in case it needs to be returned.

The Blu ray ONLY version is definitely region free. I'm unsure if that changed for the dual format release.

This link gives you an example of what my edition looks like (and why I'm confused). The back cover specifies Region B; meanwhile, the site itself claims it's region free.

It's looking more like I'm going to have to just open this...

I have the dual edition, labeled as Region B locked. I just verified that it plays in a Region A player.

Thank you! I'll try mine to make sure it works, but that gives me hope.

UPDATE: It works. Still have no idea why it's listed as Region B on the case, though.
