So now there's a 197 minute version of this film? I'm sure hoping MGM will make a 50th anniversary edition of this in 2013 or a 210 minute edition, if it even exists. Now that would be cool!

No, that was a typo, it's 154 minutes. There never was a 210 minute version. The extra minutes were for the intermission time.

Let's start campaigning for a completely restored version for the film's 50th anniversary in 2013. That'll give them 6 years to work on it.


Actually it's 7 years, but close Joe!

Well, to be exact, six and a half years!  So we're both right. :)
