Like Sunrise Silents, Grapevine Video specialises in quality restorations of films that would otherwise be heartlessly neglected. Unlike Sunrise however, Jack Hardy at Grapevine extends his enthusiasms to working on obscure sound films too. Their home page reads thus: 'Our Mission is to locate, restore and transfer films to DVD for the viewing pleasure of classic film fans everywhere'. This highly commendable approach is visable in their releases, which, like Sunrise Silents, include some sort of an 'extra', usually a related short film.
As well as releasing a regular 3 films minimum per month (a target that is often pleasingly exceeded), Grapevine offers more information on the era itself, helping the stars and the directors to stay in the public imagination that bit longer.
