This is transfered from a 1923, German re-issue, full-frame early generation 35mm print, at 18 frames per second. The English translation titles are graphic reproductions of the original Expressionist titles that were replaced by plain black and white titles in 1923. A new musical score was created for the film and digitally recorded. After the film is a collection of original graphic materials which are discussed in the audio essay.
Commentary with Mike Bud on Track 2. Also contains an excerpt from "Genuine: A Tale of a Vampire".
- Orchestral score by Timothy Brock. Genuine excerpts piano score by Robert Israel.

RETURN AND REFUND POLICY
Due to the large volume of inventory I have, I am not able to test every disc. All items are untested unless stated otherwise. Because all items are vintage new old stock or used/secondhand, there are no returns. However if the disc has laser rot or your order arrived damaged, please contact me for store credit. If you are unhappy with your order for any other reason, please send me an email describing the issue and we can work something out!
Please note that disc photos are my stock photos, unless stated as otherwise, and actual item condition may vary from these photos
All discs/covers are graded along the same lines as the Goldmine Record Grading Scale
Tested discs with any signs of laser rot will be graded along the LDDB laser rot scale:
1/5 - Light rot: a few speckles, hard to notice, might be a scratched master
2/5 - Medium rot: still can be watched but speckles are becoming distracting
3/5 - Heavy rot: multicolored snow all over the screen
4/5 - Critical rot: analog sound is distorted, digital sound clicks and pops
5/5 - Death: disc cannot be played anymore
If you have specific questions about discs and condition, I'm always happy to answer questions and provide photos! Feel free to email me!
