Ok, I emailed Jon Mulvany to ask this same question, but I'm impatient, so I'm hoping my knowledgable HTF cohorts can shed some light. I've been very excited about the upcoming DVD release of Children of Paradise from Criterion and they now have the technical specs up at their site. The link is here. I'm a bit confused as to why the film is apparently split over two discs. Yes, it's a long movie, but surely would fit on one disc. If there is an Intermission break, then I wouldn't mind, but when I saw this film in a reperatory theater there was no Intermission. I do understand that this film exists in various shortened prints, so I don't know how complete the one I saw was. Anyone know if this film is supposed to have an Intermission or not? If not, I will be a bit disappointed with splitting the film over 2 discs. Nonetheless, it is a MUST OWN film.
