I've read the play- today it is "Problematic" but it is also quite powerful and quite strong for it's time:https://metropolitanplayhouse.org/essaygreatdivide
There is also a 1929 version which is interesting, and shows off Dorothy Mackaill and Myrna Loy quite well.

This has gone double-funded, and while the discounts for early pledgers are gone, this feature with five rare Lublin shorts can still be yours if you pledge. Or if you wish to show your support without getting the dvd or blu-ray, you can do that too.

An email from the Hardys today says:
Just a small update today.


We're finalizing footage right now and soon will have all material to David Drazin to score (uploading the feature today). We'll still be doing digital work in the meantime, but we are already ahead of schedule on this one!


A side note on the short A DAY ON THE FORCE: we got access to a second print of the short and were able to pick the better transfer for inclusion in this collection.


Thank you for following and supporting the project!

Totally forgot about this one! Thank goodness KS reminded me. Looks like it was funded completely so I look forward to seeing these.
