Dear friends of Milestone,

As you probably already know, Amy and I have ventured out on our own and have 
started our own DVD label, THE MILESTONE CINEMATHEQUE. We wanted more control 
over the process and most importantly, to continue to present the films that 
we love and believe in. (Current marketing trends and Q ratings just never 
interested us.) We're proud that the first DVDs for the new label -- two 
remarkable discoveries from the British Film Institute and Nederlands Filmmuseum -- 
are now available through Milestone.

ELECTRIC EDWARDIANS: THE LOST FILMS OF MITCHELL & KENYON      (
http://www.milestonefilms.com/movie.php/electric/) 

BEYOND THE ROCKS
(http://www.milestonefilms.com/movie.php/beyond/). 

Although the street date is July 11, we are making them available to the 
people on our email list now! As an added bonus, anybody ordering ELECTRIC 
EDWARDIANS directly from Milestone, will receive a free 16-page brochure on the films 
published by the BFI. Ordering information can be found at the bottom of this 
email.

Anyone interested in Public Performance Rights can email back to us at

Best regards,

Milestone Film & Video launches its new DVD label 
THE MILESTONE CINEMATHEQUE with two remarkable classics!
Gloria Swanson and Rudolph Valentino in BEYOND THE ROCKS 
and Mitchell & Kenyon's ELECTRIC EDWARDIANS

BEYOND THE ROCKS

Martin Scorsese calls BEYOND THE ROCKS "a cause for celebration... a precious 
gift... a testament to the extraordinary artistry of silent cinema." BEYOND 
THE ROCKS stars film legends Gloria Swanson and Rudolph Valentino at the height 
of their careers and sexual appeal. This outstanding silent romance was long 
considered one of the great “lost” films from the Hollywood golden age. Its 
amazing rediscovery by the Nederlands Filmmuseum made headlines around the 
world. Sam Wood (Goodbye Mr. Chips, Pride of the Yankees) directs this delirious 
Elinor Glyn melodrama/roller-coaster ride through the English countryside, the 
Swiss Alps, Paris, London and the Sahara Desert! Brilliantly restored with a 
wonderful new orchestral score, BEYOND THE ROCKS is ready for its close-up!

ELECTRIC EDWARDIANS

The astonishing discovery of the original Sagar Mitchell & James Kenyon 
negatives in Blackburn, England - in a basement about to be demolished - has been 
described as film's equivalent of Tutankhamen's tomb. Preserved and restored by 
the BFI National Film and Television Archive in collaboration with the 
University of Sheffield National Fairground Archive and featuring a hauntingly 
beautiful score by In The Nursery, this treasure trove of extraordinary footage 
provides an unparalleled record of everyday life in the years before World War I. 
Mesmerizing scenes of trolley cars and crowded streets, soccer matches, 
temperance parades, throngs of workers leaving the factory and a myriad of simple 
pleasures transport us to another - lost - world. The effect is as if H.G. 
Wells' marvelous time machine had come to life.

DELUXE BONUS FEATURES! OPTIONAL VOICEOVER COMMENTARY BY DR. VANESSA TOULMIN, 
NATIONAL FAIRGROUND ARCHIVE, UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD. / VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH 
DR. TOULMIN. / 'PICTURES OF CROWD SPLENDOR' BY TOM GUNNING, UNIVERSITY OF 
CHICAGO. / SHORT VIDEO FEATURE ON THE RESTORATION. / 'DIVING LUCY' AND ADDITIONAL 
SHORTS BY MITCHELL & KENYON. / ELECTRIC EDWARDIANS PRESS KIT
