So-called ‘lost films’ such as THE WIFE OF PHARAOH (Ernst Lubitsch, 1921) have been recovered and restored in recent years and with the reconstruction of film historians and the expert advice of film scholars in an authentic tradition that finds international attention.
Kristin Thompson/David Bordwell: “And what a restoration it is! The Munich Film Museum’s team has created one of the most beautiful editions of a silent film I’ve ever seen.”
