Death Kiss, The (1932) Blu-ray from Kino



It's early yet so no official announcement, but it's up on Amazon. Release date looks to have been pushed back from 5/6 to 5/13 but Kino hasn't officially announced it yet so we shall see.

Looks to include the original hand-tinted sequences by Gustav Brock.

Some screen shots from the Library of Congress print have been posted up on Facebook:

I do not believe these to be captures from the Kino transfer, rather images taken by Jack Theakston from the print freely available at the LoC.

Should be cool to have on Blu-ray!

After several delays it looks like this will finally get its release on October 7, 2014.

The original hand tinting is indeed included, per the review from DVD Savant:
Quote:
The print on view has seveeral shots that use the silent movie technique of hand tinting. The key piece of film from the set is projected to see if it yields a clue to the killer, but a fire in the projection booth makes the projected image burst into a yellow-red flash of light. It's a surprising effect.

That's reason enough in my mind to pick this up.
