Hoorah!

Aarrgh!

Some enterprising English-language company (MOC, are you listening?) really needs to pick up this great film (in what looks like a great transfer) and subtitle it!

I'd just like to let it be known that I'm ok with caps containing nudity. Infact, I encourage it.

Seventh Heaven (Frank Borzage, 1927)
Spanish edition (Suevia Films)

All-region PAL; silent with orchestral score and sound effects; removable yellow Spanish subtitles on the intertitle cards; "restored" but still with a great deal of print damage.

An out-of-print title, but still of interest perhaps...

Le silence de la mer (R2 France)
Rene Chateau - no subs, not even French subs for the German dialogue!

Very nice caps from the Melville Kinsayder. Pity the disc is OOP.

Interesting image from the Spanish Seventh Heaven - it looks remarkably similar to a bootleg (I think orriginally from a divx share-file) I received recently from a European trader. (The bootleg is possibly a little cleaner.)

And the condition of the print and grain look about on a par with what we have presently (off the record) with Borzage's STREET ANGEL.

Yes.

There is a not at all bad sharefile VOB (or something ) of Borzage's The River which looked excellent. The file is taken from Italian TV, but afraid my copy (at the moment) is unplayable, even in the computer.

And another colleague emailed me that ll his sharefile stuff (freeware) has crashed.

Bloody hell - I didn't even now there WAS such a disc! Eh? How did this escape everyone? Gorgeous transfer, too. I have a subbed VHS-to-DVD-R from Super Happy Fun and it looks pretty rough. This is a film that badly needs a USA/UK release. From what I can gather, no one owns the rights in the USA and UK. Perhaps, the global rights are owned by a sole entity. I recall Nick Wrigley mentioning that MoC tried to get it, but had problems finding good unsubbed elements, but those caps prove that a great pre-print elements exists. Heck, just get that mastertape and add subs and a Ginette Vincendeau intro or commentary and you're laughing!

The Magic Flute (Bergman)
French R2 (G.C.T.H.V.), available here
Optional French subtitles only.

The captures have been chosen for comparison with the Beaver review of the Criterion edition. The Criterion image is softer and has been slightly cropped on all sides. The French edition shows more grain but I'm not sure that it's more detailed. The colours seem wrong on both: too red on the Criterion, too green on the French.

Hmm -. neither is ideal. K the French caps look like the source might be tape?

Possibly. It was certainly shot on film, though (even though it was for Swedish TV): there's an excellent making-of documentary on the French edition which shows Bergman working with the cameras.

Another Melville...

L'Aîné des Ferchaux (aka Magnet of Doom, aka Die Millionen eines Gehetzten)
German R2. French/English audio (the film is mostly set in the US) with fixed but not burnt-in German subtitles. Also German credits, and German text superimposed on a few frames.

This is a non-anamorphic transfer. The back of the case says 2.35:1. In fact only the opening credits are in that ratio: the rest of the film is cropped to about 1.85, which causes some problems in the numerous shots where Melville places Vanel and Belmondo at opposite edges of the frame.

Adn another Melville, the R4/R2 l'Armee des Ombres (clumsily translated on the Australian cover as "Army in the Shadows".)

Army of Shadows would at least retain a hint of the double meaning in the original title.

The US title of L'Aîné des Ferchaux, Magnet of Doom, puzzled me for a bit. I still think it would be a better title for Melville's Un Flic, though, which has the best use of a giant magnet outside of a Tex Avery cartoon.
