Mei Ah also own Patrick Tam's My Heart is That Eternal Rose, which would be a great Eureka title.

Any word on Love Massacre and Nomad? Presumably they would require even more work to be done, though.

Is this confirmed? The previous King Hu releases came from the Taiwan Film Foundation and Fortune Star. I don't think the Hong Kong Film Archives has licensed to anyone else, but it would be a dream if they did. They briefly released that restoration of Ann Hui's The Secret that went out of print incredibly fast.

That second one is definitely intriguing. Wonder if they'll be all silents or early talkies?

Probably to be drawn from this series and maybe we get talkies and silents at different times.

The James Murray title is almost certainly Wyler's The Shakedown, unless I'm mistaken about the company that produced that film. I'd like to think The Cat and the Canary is the Laura la Plante film. Anyway, I'm really excited about this announcement whatever it is, and even more so that it's only a volume one!

It is indeed the Shakedown plus Skinner's Dress Suit and the Shield of Honor -- the first two have been released on Blu by KLSC

At first I thought it was from The Sword (1980).
