But what people *can't* do on Blu-Ray which they could do on DVD is watch the original preview cut (which is what the long version is) with its original score. That is the one point that unfortunately Mr. Crisp never could understand and its why having used the Blu-Ray only to rip the Amfitheatrof score to CD, it will not be watched by me again. The old DVD which gave the viewer the "freedom of choice" with the longer cut (which is a better narrative) was the solution that should have been retained.Reggie W said:People who don´t like what we have done can always watch the original version. The 1965 version is still as it was, in mono, we did not stereorize it or anything and offer the new score only for the new, lengthened english version. I know and expected it to be controversial, but the issue is clearly worth discussing it.
Daniele Amfitheatrof has for too long been made a scapegoat for the shortcomings of a film that failed more because its director couldn't come up with a coherent narrative for the final third of the movie.
