Are the films silent? With music? With dialogue or narration? Mono or stereo? Or a combination of all?

Is there a list of film years or a list of the directors?

Besides "Manhatta", are there any credited composers for silent scores?
Also, this set only has a "Play All" option? No way to watch the films individually?

Aspect Ratio: 16:9

Also, please recheck the aspect ratios.
