Dear videolibbers,

here are two proposals for silent movie lovers from Europe (DVD/PAL,
allregion coded), available in France ("Region 2" on the FNAC site is
wrong):

Fantomas (Louis Feuillade 1913-1914, 5 Hours and 14 Min.!!!)
http://www.fnac.com/Shelf/article.asp?PRID=777956&SID=519FBA10%2D47EE%2DE37F%2DD0E5%2D4EE7032EBC49&UID=&AID=&Origin=FnacAff&Pe=1&No=6&Fr=0&Mn=12&Ra=-3&To=0
More information here: http://allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=A198557
(Feuillade's series LES VAMPIRES is available from IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT
in the U.S.)

Eldorado (Marcel L''Herbier 1921)
http://www.fnac.com/Shelf/article.asp?PRID=826319&SID=F10659D7%2DCA75%2DBDB7%2D4F82%2DC562480FC32B&UID=&AID=&Origin=FnacAff&Pe=1&No=4&Fr=0&Mn=10&Ra=-3&To=0

Both are really great movies, carefully restorated and otherwise very
rare. Here is an article about these two restoration projects by
GAUMONT: http://www.sensesofcinema.com/contents/01/13/dvdlandmarks.html
