Enter Paul Gierucki and Brittany Valente of CineMuseum. These two dedicated film buffs and historians, who brought us the valuable DVD collection Industrial Strength Keaton, have scoured the archives and private collections of the world to restore 100 films to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mack Sennett’s Keystone comedy studio. According to their press release, “These long neglected classic comedies will finally receive a desperately needed restoration in the HD format. Titles, intertitles and missing footage will be replaced, images lightly cleaned and stabilized, original tinting and toning will be restored and newly created scores by some of the best musicians in the industry will ensure that these wonderful films will once again be seen as originally intended.”
Seventy-six of their restorations will debut on TCM; the entire collection will be showcased on DVD and Blu-ray later this year.
