5.0 out of 5 stars Louise Brooks' best American film September 1, 2010
By William
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVDs in the "Rare Films of..." series issued by Classic Video Streams are not of the highest quality. The case often arrives damaged and the art design is so basic that the names of the films do not feature on either the cover or the spine. (The titles are included on the back of the case, but almost as an afterthought). The disk does not have chapter selection or any extras features, and although you can select which of the two films to watch, the second film will always follow the first automatically. It is all very primitive. The films have not been remastered and are of very mixed quality; the musical sound tracks often seem to be any old classical piece chosen at random. To make matters worse, the DVD are inclined to be defective and unplayable. Fortunately, Amazon's hassle-free return policy means this last problem can easily be rectified by exchanging faulty DVDs for playable ones, providing you are willing to wait an extra week or so.
Why would I give such a product Five Stars? The simple answer is that these rare silent films are for the most part available nowhere else. "Beggars of Life" (1928), arguably Louise Brooks' best American film, is the one where she murders her abusive stepfather and flees dresses as a boy into the hobo underworld of 1920s America (or at least as visualized by Hollywood). It is the only film in the "Rare Films of..." series in which Louise has a starring role, as opposed to a bit part, even though the movie really belongs to Wallace Beery as the Oklahoma Red. The second feature is a short excerpt from an interview with Louise made in the 1970s, where she talks about the great Clara Bow (who is represented in this series by only a single video, albeit with two of her better films).

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all............... February 8, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
.....Well considering everything that is. The DVD I got is a DVD+R with the film on it. It played fine on my DVD player. However, I ripped in into the hard disk and will Xvid encode it into an MKV video container. The disc and case are in excellent shape. The 'artwork' is nice. I believe it is a small time business operation where the video is burned into a DVD+R disc. Better than nothing. A reviewer for another disc in this Louise Brooks series believes that the movies are pirated. I do not think so. The operation is legit. But how many people would buy these except geeks like us who are into silent movies in 2011 :) So I am thankful we have a seller selling these.
Beggars of Life is a beautiful movie. I gave this transaction 4 stars because the quality can be better, and I wish, OH I WISH, this movie can be restored and HD remastered like Pandora's Box. I truly do not know what would go into such an endeavor, but I know it is worth it. I for one will be getting the rest of DVD's in the Louise Brooks series. I hope they will be all as physically clean as this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Louise Brooks April 12, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Arrived in excellent condition,and my copy of beggars of life was easy to see, not kino quality, but not dark. And being a hard to find film,it was worth it. I wish this film would be restored because it is an excellent film, Wallace Berry does a great job, and of coarse Louise Brooks and the other actors also, I loved the film,thanks for making this available,and hope kino will restore it someday.

1.0 out of 5 stars Movie good dvd poor quality and will not play all March 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Movie would be of interest but dvd came scuffed with scratches and fingerprints on it.
It has very poor production values - I have other films from this era none of so poor quality.
There is no excuse for sending a dvd with fingerprints and scratches - never got to see it all as it stopped playing.

Seller should be ashamed to send such a poor quality product
