The Poverty Row, pre-Code crime drama The Sin of Nora Moran that stunned audiences when released in 1933, returns in a stunning 4K restoration from Film Detective.

The film stars Zita Johann as Nora Moran, a young woman sentenced to death for a murder she did not commit. Awaiting her sentence, Nora explores the patterns of her life in a dream-like haze, including the dark secret that could change not only her own fate, but the fate of those she holds most dear.

Directed by Phil Goldstone, The Sin of Nora Moran masterfully utilizes flashbacks, dreams and hallucinations to tell the tale of fateful doom, true to the thematic style of the Pre-Code era.

Packaged in in a sleek, black case—with elements from the film’s original poster—this spellbinding crime drama will be released with a 4K restoration of the film from the original 35mm camera negative. The Blu-ray is presented DTS, a restored, duel mono original. Aspect ratio is 1.37 pillar boxed.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Narrated by film historian and producer Samuel M. Sherman, an original documentary where Johann’s illustrious career takes center stage from Daniel Griffith at Ballyhoo Motion Pictures; the Blu-ray includes English subtitles and an exclusive collector’s booklet with commentary on the production of and response to the film.
