| Perhaps this is what the original movie was like. I still find it a bit odd. |
Me, too. According to George Feltenstein, this is what the movie sounded like originally, and the DVD faithfully re-creates the original audio mix, he said.
I pointed out in our interview how odd the looped dialogue (used heavily partly because of the international cast and their many accents) was and how it dated the movie, and he agreed:
"The looped dialogue--and the lady who played Salome; I think she ended up marrying Nicolas Ray," he said with a laugh. "Brigid Bazlen was her name, and she ended up having an MGM contract for a few weeks after that. There are some things that date the film here and there," he added, "but it does have a refreshing viability."
