A Full Program Disc
This Full Program disc was inspired by the classic Saturday afternoon matinees. The program includes a Sennett comedy, a Hart western and the adventure film SHE. We have also included our first Photoplay Edition slideshow. We think these covers look great and hope to present more of them on future discs. We believe this DVD will be perfect entertainment for a rainy Saturday afternoon or even a sunny one. Thanks for considering Sunrise and we hope you enjoy the show.
