Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Peckinpah's CROSS OF IRON plus documentary
« on: September 02, 2023, 03:28:44 AM »
No, non of that. I really do not remember. Since then I did the video-essay for RED RIVER, the IMPRINT Cross-box, the IMPRINT Garcia & Passion & Poetry box incl. audio-commentaries, now I'm into a video-essay for ONE-EYED JACKS, next comes CONVOY (I hope)... a lot of stuff  :D.

I offered an update regarding the deleted scenes, but I think the layout is already done.
I just learned about the footage few weeks ago.
It's two sequences:
the 5 min. rough cut (wih live sound!) of the opening of film (behind enemy lines), only
a few seconds made it into the final cut.
And a scene (no sound, I tried to score it a little bit) depicting the platoon hinding
behind bushes from a Russian platoon (after they crossed the street with the truck traffic).
plus a few long takes of the girl and Kern in the bath tub barrel...

I put a few images on FB. Anybody interested in Peckinpah may friend me on Facebook,
(Unfortunaly) I don't have the time to post too many details all the time in forums...

So Mike, can you share any teasers about what we can expect from your article on Cross of Iron in the upcoming issue of Cinema Retro magazine?

I wrote it a year ago, I forgot  :).
Just a 10 or 12 page special about the film (spread
over two issues I think...)

Stills or actual video footage?

Regardless, I?ll be picking this one up for sure.

Any word on that extended Japanese version of Convoy being picked up by Imprint? They are giving Peckinpah a lot of love these days.

two sequences from a rough cut!

CONVOY: I'd say this version will come out  :)

Ooh that imprint version looks good.

Plus I love the sound of this: ?NEW Interview with editors Tony Lawson and Michael Ellis?

Cross of Iron has some of the best editing I have ever seen? ever?


News Bulletin:
I just added a last minute extra - 8 minutes of deleted scenes!

Great fun of course. Not so sure about the English dubbing, probably it loses a lot. It's hilarious in Italian or German...
In Germany it was the most succesful film ever until TITANIC took over! Approx. 11 milion tickets sold as I recall...

My ultimate go at CROSS is the upcoming IMPRINT box.
It also includes my 35mm print (nice grindhouse experience with original colors)
and 3 more (new) interviews. Otherwise the Studiocanal releases have the same content...

PERICLES ON 31st STREET I really like. I have a very good copy, maybe I find a way to upload it...

Without giving too much away, could you possibly just tell me if I?m wasting my time periodically browsing Japanese auction sites to pick up a certain OOP disc ?

Yes, I'd rather spend the time watching Marx Brothers films....

I'm always looking out for stuff like this of course. Alternative TV-versions etc. No luck so far.

But 2023/2024 will be superb years regarding Peckinpah releases. I am working on big stuff. Wish I could
talk about it, but I can't of course. I never reveal anything before the labels make the announcement...

Nice memories...
I wrote a 10-page special for CINEMA RETRO years ago. Sarafian liked it
very much and always had a copy on him to show it to people...
He then sent me some signed photos ("Thanks for keeping my film alive")

Thanks !!

IMPRINT does not have to read here,
they will do all upcoming Peckinpah boxes with me anyway.

I have few "ultimate" releases planned, just knock on wood...
