Does anybody know the history of this silent film? I have two videos with
similar titles and the same story line. One is called Herr Arnes pengar =
Sir Arne's treasure (106 min.) released by Foreign Film Classics. The other
is called The house of Arne on tape, cassette is labeled The treasure of
Arne (approx. 40 min.) released by Hollywood Attic. They both have the note
"Originally produced as a motion picture in Sweden in 1919". The first has
Swedish subtitles and the second English. Should I assume that the second
is an edited down version of the first?

Thank you for any help you can provide.
