This new edition of Sunrise (for the first time anywhere in the world on Blu-ray) contains two versions of the film: the previously released Movietone version and an alternate silent version of the film, recently discovered in the Czech Republic, of a higher visual quality than any other known source.

The culmination of one of the greatest careers in film history, F. W. Murnau's Sunrise blends a story of fable-like simplicity with unparalleled visual imagination and technical ingenuity. Invited to Hollywood by William Fox and given total artistic freedom on any project he wished, Murnau's tale of the idyllic marriage of a peasant couple (George O'Brien and Janet Gaynor) threatened by a vamp-like seductress from the city (Margaret Livingston) created a milestone of film expressionism.

Made in the twilight of the silent era, Sunrise became both a swan song for a vanishing medium and one of the few films to instantly achieve legendary status. Winner of three Oscars for Best Actress (Gaynor), Cinematography, and a never-repeated award for "Unique and Artistic Picture", its influence and stature has only grown with each passing year.
  • Film-restored HD transfers of two different versions: Movietone and Czech
  • Original English intertitles on the Movietone and optional English subtitles on the Czech
  • Original Movietone score (mono) + alternate Olympic Chamber Orchestra score (stereo)
  • Full-length audio commentary by cinematographer John Bailey on the Movietone version
  • Rare outtakes with John Bailey commentary
  • Murnau's 4 Devils: Traces of a Lost Film - Janet Bergstrom's updated documentary
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • 20-page booklet with details of the film restorations and comparison of versions
