I've never gotten a straight answer if the downer ending is available anywhere, but I'd like to see that too.  It's somewhat of a downer ending as is, but w/ the one where Cord gets gunned down, we're talking The Great Silence territory.  In my rating, it'd definitely go up a point w/ the downer ending. O0

The german version is even shorter with only 94 min, but it has the downbeat ending.


Cord is shot by the 2 bounty hunters, who had appeared earlier in the movie, just when he has left the town. One says that it was never so easy to earn 10.000 bucks, but then they find the amnesty paper and he begins to laugh like crazy.



In the 118 min version this could become a minor classic.

I found this at Youtube, it's a Spanish version but it features the original ending.  SPOILERS obviously, don't watch it if you don't want to know the ending of the movie.  It's not of the best quality, but you get the idea of what it was going for.  Too bad this couldn't have been on the MGM DVD. >:(

Contains both endings, apparently, but one is in bad condition.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

There is no real second ending. The English version just ends 5 min before the ending of the original version.

Apart from being shorter, the English version contains at least one (very good) scene not to be found in the Italian version. There are also some flip cuts which are also exclusively in this version, so that the MGM version is really a different version, and not only just a cut version. A composite version is in circulation amongst fans.
