Videodrone's Best of 2011 in DVD and Blu-ray (Review)
Author(s): Sean Axmaker
Publication: Videodrone
Date: 1/6/2012
Abstract: #3 on top-10 DVD list: "This collection of features, shorts, documentaries, newsreels, travelogues and fragments from the silent and early sound era is more about preservation and education than simple entertainment, but it is entertaining as well as revealing. It's a record of the American West as it was transforming from frontier to modern world, as viewed through fictional representations and documentary recordings. The richness of offerings and the span of formats presents a visual record that makes the case for film preservation better than any lecture."
