Two films by Paul Leni

Flicker Alley has released two new Blu-rays of silent films by Paul Leni, a German director who also worked in the United States. They are The Man Who Laughs and The Last Warning. DVDs are also included.

I recently watched The Last Warning and Flicker Alley has done a great job. The film has been restored as much as possible and the disc has excellent supplements. I haven’t watched The Man Who Laughs but I have seen the old Kino Lorber release. I don’t think The Last Warning has been available on any form of home video in the US before.

The Man Who Laughs is watched by characters in Brian dePalma’s The Black Dahlia.
