    Dear Jon,

    I came across a potential quality upgrade for “Die Reise nach Tilsit”:

    It doesn’t have subtitles though.

    Best regards and thank you so much for this wonderful site!

    I am assuming this is based on the same original work that Sunrise (1927), basically the best film ever made, was based on.
