Broken Blossoms DVD


This 1936 Twickenham production Produced by Julius Hagen who put together a fine team of technicians. Hagen a German, called upon several countrymen, Hans Brahm Director, Curt Courant Photography then on screen Dolly Haas, and our own master of the scissors Ralph Kemplen. Comparisons are made to the DW Griffith version which seems unnecessary. The early model work is not the best but enjoy this fine but not pc production. The picture and sound have been restored to a very good quality for a title of this age.
