    This is truly wonderful news—- My husband and I attended the recent showing of the restored “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” at the Samuel Goldywn Theater and were absolutely awed by the miraculous restoration work of Mr. Brownlow. He was also there at the event and graciously answered questions from the audience. Such a wonderful evening and such a beautiful, touching film…….
