Eureka Entertainment release Paul Leni’s The Last Warning, the final silent film from one of German cinema’s great filmmakers, presented on Blu-ray as part of The Masters of Cinema Series from 15 February 2021.
Adapted from Thomas F. Fallon’s 1922 Broadway play of the same name, The Last Warning, starring Laura La Plante, is based on the story The House of Fear by Wadsworth Camp and centres on an unsolved murder that occurs during a live Broadway performance. When the victim’s body goes missing, the death remains unsolved and the theatre is condemned. That is, until years later when a suspicious new ‘producer’ arrives to restage the play with the original cast and crew.
The edition includes a score by composer Arthur Barrow, brand new audio commentary with Stephen Jones and Kim Newman, a video essay by film historian and author John Soister and a rare stills gallery. Plus a collector’s booklet.
The film is available to order from Eureka Store.
Courtesy of Eureka we are offering five Blu-rays as prizes which feature a limited edition O-card slip case.
