This is the restored version from 2012. It has color tinting and a piano score. It is very sharp most of the time, but
there's a few brief shots that look like the source was of a lesser quality but included for continuity. The extras are so-
so. You get The Early Years short documentary, which is also on Criterion's The 39 Steps blu-ray. There's a brief photo
gallery and (in Spanish) a filmography and biography, and a summary of Downhill as well as a credits list.
The running time is 105 minutes, 25 minutes longer than the DVD that I have. Most of this time difference must be in the frames per second rate since I didn't see any major new scenes. Mostly there are shot extensions and a few brief scene linking
The film is kind of slow in parts but still very innovative in that there are very few dialogue inter-titles. Creative camera
work and dissolves prove the young director had talent way back in 1927. Nice to have this and The Lodger (which is
Region B locked)on blu-ray which are part of the Hitchcock 9 silent films restored by the BFI.
