Manufacturer Description

SUNRISE: (1927) This new 3-disc edition of SUNRISE contains two versions of the film, the previously released Movietone version and and alternate silent version, recently discovered in the Czech Republic, of a higher visual quality than any previous source. The culmination of one of the greatest careers in film history, F. W. Murnau's SUNRISE blends a story of fable-like simplicity with unparalled visual imagination and technical ingenuity. Murnau's tale of of the idyllic marriage of a peasant couple (George O'Brien and Janet Gaynor) threatened by a vamp-like seductress from the city (Margaret Livingston) created a milestone of film expressionism. Made in the twilight of the silent era, SUNRISE became both a swan song for a vanishing medium and one of the few films to instantly achieve legendary status. Winner of three Oscars for Best Actress (Gaynor), Cinematography and a never-repeated award for Best Unique and Artistic Picture, its influence and stature has grown with every passing year. SPECIAL DUAL FORMAT EDITION: Film-restored HD transfers of two different versions: Movietone and Czech Original English intertitles on the Movietone and optional English subtitles on the Czech Murnau's 4 Devils: Traces of a Lost film Janet Bersrom's updated documentary 20-page booklet with details of the film restorations and comparisons of versions Full-length audio commentary by cinematographer John Bailey on the Movietone version Rare outtakes with John Bailey commentary Original Movietone score (mono) + alternate Olympic Chamber Orchestra score (stereo) ** Playable on Most North American & Canadian Blu-ray Players
