Kinowelt releasing Our Gang silents 1927-29

Extraordinarily good news from the German video company Kinowelt (responsible for the remarkable Laurel & Hardy collection). They're planning to release the chronological Roach/Our Gang shorts in September, including the late-silent era releases.

If I recall correctly, they planned to release these titles to VHS years ago, but halted the project. I saw some time-coded master tapes at the time, and they looked fantastic. Add this to the upcoming Laughsmith collection, and we've got the gang pretty well covered!

Thanks to Nico Cartenstadt for alerting me to this one!

And if the follow-up sets indeed offer the comprehensive Roach Rascal talkies, they would perovide a splendid alternative to the (partially) botched recent US set... no furter info on German sites and forums on the exact content yet, as far as I can see though.
