Summary
The deluxe two-disc DVD set includes a new 2K restoration of Ghost Town (1935) an astonishing and haunting amateur documentary about post-cinema Fort Lee. Disc One also features five films made at Champion Studios, recovered thanks to the efforts of the Library of Congress and the Fort Lee Film Commission. Disc Two includes exciting NJ film rediscoveries, a slapstick comedy from director Mack Sennett, a "melodramatic comedy" starring Madge Kenney, and the earliest surviving film version of Robin Hood
