SQUADRON DVD RELEASE VIP SUBSCRIPTIONS
The Squadron is pleased to be looking forward to offering many more rare serials including new restored editions of many Mascot and a few Independent serials on DVD over the next year or so, mastered from new transfers of excellent studio-quality original prints. All Squadron commercial release titles will now be made available first to subscribers only.

These DVDs and the Republic serial restorations above are available for commercial sale or dealer inquiry. And they're not just copies of other people's stuff, either. Most are new digital transfers from rare existing original film prints with restored picture and sound, some with extras and viewing options and even special color tone effects, commentary and new musical scores. The silent titles in particular have been painstakingly restored shot-for-shot in most cases and include restored sections or summaries of action for content that survives only in incomplete form.

CUSTOMERS: PLEASE ALLOW 30 DAYS FOR DELIVERY FOR ALL ORDERS -- Note that we are not primarily a commercial company like Amazon.com with a huge staff that ships DVDs every day but a collectors' service and library-like archive and usually ship twice a week and sometimes need to have titles reprinted. That being said, some weeks we ship every day, and most orders ship within 1-2 weeks, but at any given time there may be a number of orders which came in before yours which we are working on so please be patient till we get to yours. If you received a receipt email from PayPal there is no need for you to email us asking for a shipping date of any package -- that means we've got your order. We fill orders in the queue in which they were received and when we have everything you have requested ready to go and when your order is processed you will receive an email with tracking information which will allow you to track your package after it's been processed by the Post Office, which may sometimes be a few days after you are sent the email. 1-2 DVD orders tend to ship more quickly than large orders which may take longer to ship if items need to be reprinted.

SQUADRON RESTORATIONS ARE NOT PUBLIC DOMAIN -- BUY FROM LICENSED VENDORS ONLY
We have regrettably recently received reports of unlicensed vendors selling copies of Squadron DVDs at conventions, in email lists, and on websites, including THE HOPE DIAMOND MYSTERY and even advertising illegal copies for sale in periodicals. Movies Unlimited, the Lone Ranger Fan Club and Norman Kietzer are licensed as a secondary distributors of Squadron DVDs but please do not order or purchase copies of Squadron publications from ANY other vendors; if you do you will be purchasing stolen property. Squadron restorations of public domain works are actively and legitimately copyrighted as "new versions" or derivative works, they are not public domain, even if their source material may be. Read about copyrights on derivative works at the Library of Congress. We reserve the right to register a copyright infringement complaint with the FBI, take legal action for damages, or file a charge of theft against any vendor selling copyrighted Squadron works without permission.
Note to New Members: We are essentially a library, not a commercial storefront like Amazon.com and due to the very low demand for what we make available we do not keep large quantities of titles in stock or ship DVD orders or requests every day but make requests to order and send them in batches in the order in which they were received about twice a week. So PLEASE do not email us right after you send your order with shipping questions, but instead please allow at least about 2 weeks for delivery of Squadron or Archive DVDs. They may come a little sooner or a little later but we ask that you please understand this policy because we cannot make what we do available any other way without charging twice as much for our services. Thank you!
THE MASKED RIDER

The long-awaited complete collector's edition of THE MASKED RIDER is still in production. DVD Volume 3 and the Masked Rider Companion book including ultra-rare script and photo material will be available at the same time.
In progress. If you pledged, your Vol. 3 DVD will still be mailed out to you after we confirm your current address. Please don't send us updated contact information just yet -- we will send out emails first when the DVDs and book are nearing completion.

"I AM THE SERIAL. I am the black sheep of the picture family and the reviled of critics. I am the soulless one with no moral, no character, no uplift. All I do is try to amuse. I am ashamed. Because I have so many friends I wonder if there is not some good in me. I have ambitions. I will get better. Until then, I suppose it is my fate to flaunt myself along, to put forth what petty virtues I have as best I can -- and pay for the birth of my high-brow brothers. Ah, me, if only I could be respectable!" -- George B. Seitz
