I thought I’d write a little this week about the basic stages of producing a Thunderbean title, using the Flip the Frog Blu-ray set as an example.
As a special treat this week, here is the first restoration we’ve made public: the *almost* finished clean up of A Chinaman’s Chance (1932), with the Celebrity Pictures titles.
