Dear Scott:

Flicker Alley, a small but very good DVD manufacturer, is planning to 
release a restored version of Murnau's PHANTOM (1922) in the near 
future. Here's the URL:

Sinister Cinema ( used to sell a VHS version of 
SCHLOSS VOGELOED (1921), but I can't seem to find it in their catalog 
anymore. You may be able to request it via interlibrary loan, but I 
can't vouch for the quality. As far as I know, it has never been 
released on DVD.

Lastly, you may be insterested to hear that in June Eureka's "Masters 
of Cinema" line ( is scheduled to 
release a new DVD of the domestic German release version of FAUST, 
which is different from the print that Kino released here and Eureka 
released previously on DVD in the UK. I suspect the transfer will also 
look better than Kino's.
