A little off topic.  The video is berkl line in 1927 with no sound. I 
hae an elderly man almost 100 years old I put it on his daughters xp 
machine and he is watching it and doing a voice over in German and 
English and saving it so I can put it on the video. Its a great silent 
movie I have some really fine music in the public domain for it and am 
very excited about it.  This is really important to me.  I plan to put 
it on Vimeo and Youtube ether in the public domain or creative commons. 
There may not be anyone else left in the world that can remebr where and 
what the scenes in the movie are and narriate it in both 
languages.                                 Doug
