Even though the cover art is the same, make no mistake, this is an ALL NEW restoration for 2008 that improves on the first release, which was pretty darn good to begin with. What I particularly like about this new restoration is the fact that it contains all the original title cards (the first version had to reproduce several). This is, without question, the best, most complete version of The Man From Beyond you can find on DVD. How do I know this? Because, being a Houdini fanatic, I own them ALL and have obsessively compared them side by side.

In addition to the previous Bonus material offered on the DVD, this new version adds the almost complete screenplay of The Master Mystery, scanned from an original with notes on it. This DVD also includes complete and uncut footage of Houdini escaping from a straight jacket in Dayton, Ohio. I've see bits of this footage, but never the whole escape, start to finish, filmed in long shot. What's cool is at one point we can see a cameraman set up on the ledge and shoot the closeup footage that we see most often in documentaries. Great stuff!

Obviously, I recommend this DVD highly.

This film is a must have for any Houdini fan, or silent film buff. Restored Serials has done a wonderful job with this movie. The image quality is great, the music is fantastic, you can easily read the title cards, it contains missing scenes and the extra footage of Houdini escaping from a straight jacket is fabulous!!!

I have other versions of this film and none of them come close to comparing with what Restored Serials has done here. It really must be seen to be believed.
