Yes I am sceptical about this. I think he's seen a script. Surely we would have heard about it in this day and age.  I got in touch with him and he said the Leone family or Cinecita have it and maybe Prof Frayling!!

Interested to find out if there's anything new on the 3 mins on the Kino disc.

I just got my tickets! On thursday, I'll see the restaured 70mm version in Paris.


In case there are french readers on this board, it plays at the Arlequin for a week, 3 screenings a day, starting wednesday.

Watched this one last night... It's pretty uneven as Joe mentioned, but there's plenty left to enjoy. It's got some beautiful shots & locations, Jeff Bridges gives the 'scraggy (recovering) alcoholic detective' trope a whole new harsh dimension, it was cool to see Alexandra Paul in a more challenging part (I mostly know her from Baywatch :D ), and Patricia Arquette and Andy Garcia are always watchable (altho as Joe also says, Garcia goes a bit over-the-top at times)... But the editing and some of the dialogue is atrocious, damn (apparently some of the dialogue was ad-libbed as there was none). It could've been an easy 8+/10, as it stands it's a 7-/10 for me now.

Yes the whole warehouse sequence would have benefited a bit of trimming.

The Spiral Staircase (1945)  EEEEHHH.  I didn't care for this one.  The contrived older woman in the bed with her shenanigans.  You knew who the bad guy was gonna end up being.  The whole thing was kinda silly.  The cinematography was pretty good. Other than that...  5 out of 10.

Don't think I've ever watched this one completely. Saw the very beginning that's it.

Those are better, but do the same with all the ones above those they stretch the box way to wide :-)

Someone has posted below Erickson's review about seeing a longer version of 120 mins on a German channel in 1999.  The extra stuff included the scene where he steals the poncho from a soldier by the river and a longer beating scene. He posted this3 years ago. When did the outtakes  surface...4 years ago?

Yeah more outtakes came out for the 2014 release trailers. Obviously he's making a huge claim... And the way he's written it is pretty off putting. Frayling has been describing that opening for years because it was in the script he has, long before 2014...that's how I immediately recognized it. Likewise the extended dinner scene has been talked about (but has never turned up in the deleted footage or stills). I don't think his claim is legit, what would be amazing is if one of these companies would release the full scenes as an extra, since obviously all the raw footage not used for the film still exists (not the case with Gbu and Oatitw). I don't know what the 3 min on the new Kino disc is comprised of. I'm hopeful Kino at least did some investigating for FAFDM and maybe some of that deleted footage still survives, there seems to be a lot that was cut from that film.
