    Great idea for an episode, guys. Interesting, uplifting, and funny. AVOID BITES!

    Wanted to give props, since you mention her, to Shadow Of A Vampire’s Catherine McCormick, who is one of those actors that JUST MISSED being really famous despite ample talent. She came to my notice in her rare starring roles in Dangerous Beauty (which is a fun film but probably not fodder for you show), Spy Game and Katherine Bigelow’s Weight Of Water, and supporting in Tailor Of Panama. But though I spot her all the time (she’s often the beautiful wife/girlfriend whose death motivates a man, as in Braveheart or 28 Weeks Later) very few people seem to be aware of her beyond a face they’ve seen somewhere before.

    Question: You guys mentioned a few versions of the original out there because of a copyright issue with it’s original release. There is a version on Netflix dated 1929. Is this the original, or a good copy of it? I thought you said it was 1922, and a comment on the Netflix page for it says it’s a bad edition.

      Yeah, looking at the reviews, it appears that this version isn’t a good one. I would suggest finding a way to watch the Kino release, which has effective music and title cards.
      The 1929 thing is also a bit suspicious.
