The soundtrack on the trailer sounds very Morricone-esque at one point.

Wow - this looks great. A beautifully shot film.

The interview with Tony Lawson might be interesting too - I remember reading an interview once where he described his role as being little more than "a pair of hands" for Kubrick.

Surprised no-one has mentioned this yet:

This was the original threatrical cut of the print. I guess the cultists don't much like the director's re-vamped version now available on home video.

I just read DVDBeaver's review of "The Warriors" BD. It's a shame they didn't include the original version without the comic book inserts of the "director's cut". I haven't seen the "director's cut" so can't comment, but I'm less tempted to buy it without the theatrical version in there too.

...a Mann/Alton set is likely to come to fruition.

We’ve accessed BFI prints for both Raw Deal and T-Men and will have more information regarding the potential set in the near future.

I wonder if we'll get all of the below:

1947: T-Men
1948: Raw Deal
1948: He Waked by Night
1949: Border Incident
1949: Reign of Terror
1950: Devil's Doorway

That would be so great.

Wow, is she really 86?

I've never seen the remake but the 1938 original has some nice "noir" cinematography involving the rainy train tracks in the night - particularly when Gabin is lurking around with the lead piping.

Here's a link to a video captured on my phone:

Wow - you weren't kidding. That is so weird and amateurish looking Shocked

Usually I can take it when a guy walks up 5 steps instead of 6, but this is a "moment". And great
films are made of "moments". I remember Sollima speaking for our documentary, about those
kind of people working at the wrong place, messing up art. It was sad but also funny: "...meantime in a cave,
near Neanderthal, some cretin, with limited brains..."

Even taking into account showtimes needing to fit financial requirements or supposed attention spans etc etc, examples like this still make zero sense.

The 80s CBS LD used an Italian print that was crudely edited to conform to the International Cut. It has a crude cut where the first few seconds of the "6 is the perfect number" scene is visible before it cuts to Tuco in the boxcar, presumably to allow for the music to play to its entirety as the train leaves the station.

If only they hadn't bothered... Such butchering was far more common back then than it is now, but we haven't completely escaped it.

I always wonder how things like this go unnoticed. "Navajo Joe" has a similar screw up involving another Morricone score on most of its home video releases - the German DVD got it right, but then apparently it was messed up on the BD again.

Terrible scene, I'm glad it is not in the film. It would never, never ever be included in the Stanton cut (aka Italy's greatest cultural achievement)

I think it is just like the Rising scene in OUTW a "safety" scene. Shot to include in case audiences have trouble to follow the narrative.

Yup - agreed.

We need to be able to refer to this scene by some pithy name. Anyone got a suggestion?

It has about a second more footage at the beginning of the shot resulting in the action of tuco running towards the window being repeated.

You mean you see it twice - kinda like a replay? Doesn't that look really odd?
