New Box Set from Kino

I just got this in my mailbox:

In March, Kino will be issuing a 6-DVD box set of F.W. Murnau films. As described on their Web site:

All six films included in the box set, The Haunted Castle (1921), Nosferatu (1922), The Last Laugh (1924), The Finances of the Grand Duke (1924), Tartuffe (1925), and Faust (1926) have been recently restored by the Murnau Foundation and Transit Films, Germany, and were mastered from 35mm archival materials.

Of these six films, three of them are new to DVD in the US: Faust, being presented in a restoration of the German release edit never seen in the US, as well as The Haunted Castle and The Finances of the Grand Duke, both being made available for the first time in the US.

Also, they're having a sale, with some silents included. (I ordered one of the Murnau films, The Haunted Castle, and The Cat and the Canary - a favorite, and on sale.)
