I would like to hear what De Palma has to say about this, i remember Coppola claiming the cinema prints of Dracula and subsequent DVD versions were all wrong, they then released his version on blu ray, that version got many complaints but i actually think it's very good,
Francis Coppola never actually said that. According to second- and third-hand sources, a representative from Zoetrope allegedly said that. Coppola has never spoken about the Dracula Blu-ray on the record, to my knowledge.
I find the claims that every single release of that film, including every theatrical print, were wildly incorrect and nothing at all like what Coppola wanted, and the only accurate representation of the movie was a mysterious answer print hidden way in a warehouse unseen by human eyes until the Blu-ray was released, to be completely ludicrious. But that's another argument and off-topic for this thread.
