CHF 36.00 / EUR 30.00

The 2-disc DVD presents a new reconstruction of Frank Borzage's masterpiece from the last year of American silent cinema, The River. For the first time Cinémathèque Suisse was able to include a recently discovered erotic sequence which was cut by the censors. Janet Bergstrom discusses in a visual essay the relationship between F.W. Murnau and Frank Borzage at the end of the 20s at Fox. The DVD also includes the first three 1915/16 Western movies by and with Frank Borzage, a collection of production stills and texts by Borzage biographer Hervé Dumont.
