Check the US site for the reviews of this truly excellent film (if only today's blockbusters exhibited the intelligence on display in this, without a doubt, blockbuster). This was, deservedly the highest grossing film of the non-talkie era (although I suspect more people saw Birth of a Nation) - a superb piece of all round entertainment - action, spectacle, comedy, non-hokey sentiment (and hokey sentiment) and a message picture in one sumptuous package.
More to the point for anyone here - the print is SUPERB - the best print of any film I've seen from that period (including the restored Metropolis). Even more to the point - ignore the Amazon specifications - this blu ray is not region A/1 - it is region free.
Grab it now.

I saw this as live cinema, with orchestra, years ago and it was brilliant (just ignore the corny bits). The orchestral score was terrific and scary (and loud!).
