I was secretly hoping The Phantom Chariot would be in the mix, but certainly can't complain.

Tartan U.K. put out two editions of The Phantom Carriage/Chariot earlier this year, so at least it's there to be had. Btw, as I suspected, The Outlaw and His Wife is turning out to be a 1918 release, which is most likely why Bordwell and Thompson didn't feature it on their Best of '17 list you posted a while back.

A Man There Was I believe was in that top 10 however, and I just found out yesterday that there is a DVD available of Douglas Fairbank's early comedy Wild and Woolly (another 1917 release) so great strides in WWI era films being made on DVD.

I've seen The Phantom Chariot so I can wait for the eventual R1 release, I just saw it in a low grade VHS copy so can't blame me for wanting a more authoritative restored print. Next order of DVD's I'm planning on getting Kino's Lubitsch in Berlin set (I'm amazed I didn't get it sooner) and I'll report back.
