An opportunity to buy a brand-new PAL DVD disc of one of the great early American musical sound films made in 1930:
Dixiana, 1930, starring Bebe Daniels
Running Time: approximately 99 minutes
The source material is excellent – with very good picture and excellent sound quality.
The aspect ratio is 1.85:1, created from the original 1.33:1 ratio for broadcast on television screens.
The final third of this film is in COLOUR - the 2-strip Technicolor sequences were considered lost for years until they were re-discovered in 1988
Your brand-new DVD disc will be created from this source material (without any artwork), and will be supplied in a clear plastic wallet, NOT in a DVD case.
Note that the picture attached is for illustrative purposes only, and is therefore NOT included or offered with this listing.
IMPORTANT NOTE for American, Canadian and other non-Region 2 buyers:
You will need a multi-region DVD player to play this disc.
Directed by Luther Reed
Music by Max Steiner - his first screen credit
