Plans for Re-release?
27 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like many youngsters in the early seventies, I too watched while lying on the living room floor Killiam's "The Silent Years" hosted by Orson Welles. I have never forgotten it and every so often search to see if the series has been converted to digital and re-released. Narrated by the inimitable Orson Welles, underscored by the marvelous piano playing of William Perry, featuring an incredible collection of silent movies (many that might have disappeared through disintegration), we had much to thank for Killiam resurrecting these treasures. I would have loved to have shown them to my children who are now grown and off to college. Who owns and houses the series now?
