Behind the Door, Inside the Library of Congress: An Interview with Mike Mashon
By Sarah Bastin
Flicker Alley fans know that many of our releases are made possible through film elements stored at the Library of Congress. Our latest release, Behind the Door (1919), is no exception. The new restoration by the San Francisco Film Festival uses the only two known remaining prints, sourced from the Library of Congress and Gosfilmofond of Russia, to bring the most complete version of the film available since 1919 to Blu-ray and DVD for the first time.
