Actually they usually (but not always) open the image up slightly from 1.85 to 1.78 so you are actually getting a little more information top and bottom on the DVD/BD release.
Correct!

Still, they should have been supplied as extras on a new DVD/Blu-ray, not re-integrated into the film.
They wouldn't have got funding to do so if that's all they were doing. They needed to added them back as a so called "Director's Cut" in order to get the movie into cinemas to recoup the cost. They did a similar thing with Close Encounters and Alien.

Apparently there was title card shown stating that the newly restored material was originally printed for reference purposes and that they cleaned them up as much as they could.

They'll looks less distracting by the time they make it to DVD but still...

I'm happy to be finally seeing these scenes and at least they didn't need to be re-dubbed!

This is translated from this site... (FIXED link)

Quote
Six blocks of scenes - belonging to different eras in which the film is set - reintroduced in the new version which now reaches the last 4 hours and 19 minutes:

1) dialogue between Noodles, played by Robert De Niro, and director of the cemetery, played by Louise Fletcher (scene set in 1968);

2) changing the sequence in which the car with Noodles and Max (played by James Woods) sinks and anxiety of friends who do not see resurface Noodles (1933);

3) the film producer Arnon Milchan in the role of chauffeur talks with Noodles (1933);

4) love scene (fee) between Noodles and Eve, played by Darlenne Fluegel (1933);

5) Deborah, played by Elizabeth McGovern, plays Cleopatra in Shakespeare's theater (1968);

6) Senator Bailey (New Identity Max), played by Woods, has an interview in his private study with the leading trade unionist in the past of a "rescue" by the banda of Noodles and Max (1968).

Cheers fellas! Just wish I'd done a little dance as well as a skip! Did it all from my opium fuelled memory.

Finally transferred this to DVD from my old VHS copy from 2000. So I've now stuck it on YouTube for those of you who have yet to see it in it's untruncated form.  Smiley

Enjoy....

Not much more to add to what's been said. Other than a few pictures and some video.

Can we count on you will attend the London concert to give us a review in anticipatiion of the NYC concert, in Feb 2007?
I'd appreciate to know what tunes are on the program.
I'll be there on the 2nd so expect a review from me.  Smiley
15  Other/Miscellaneous / Ennio Morricone / Re: Ennio Morricone 19/7/06 London Concert on: July 17, 2006, 06:11:02 AM
Well the concerts off.

It's been rescheduled for December 1st and 2nd, I believe.

Oh well, glad I'd not arrange to ferry my dad from Boro to see it.
