The New York Film Festival will be screening (Oct3) a restored print (no added scenes) of this film. Also included in the screening will be rare outakes from the film (a rarity for a United Artists film as there was no room for storage of the trims and outtakes for most of their films)Is there a chance we will see this in 2002?

A great request. I've avoided buying the existing version as I've heard it looks like crap, but I really do want this movie. Make it nice and I shall buy.

Charles Laughton's only film as director, and has a stunning, creepy and surreal atmosphere practically done in by a mediocre DVD trasnfer by MGM.

I love this movie along with the other Robert Mitchum classics Cape Fear (1962) and Out of the Past. But I thought the transfer on the MGM DVD was pretty decent. Maybe that was because I was watching it on a 32" TV. In any case, a new release with the restored print and the outtakes would always be welcome !

I think you must be mistaken. The current disc looks very nice already.

I thought it looked pretty good, too. Some extras would have been nice, though...
------------------
He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
-- Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain
