    One probably needs a warped sense of humor and have grown up with British humor through television, as I do/did. I love HOLY GRAIL, including the intermission. Not to hijack a thread I am glad has appeared, MPATHG is a wicked satire of class, pomposity, all movies set in medieval days that depict medieval knights in shining armor, which this film debunks rather well, actually. It probably presents a more believable simulation of what that period might actually have looked like than, say, IVANHOE or KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE. GRAIL shows us a world full of poverty, mud, disease, and superstition, which gives the film a rather serious undercurrent if you look beneath the slapstick and crude verbal gags. Anyway, you and I don't agree on this one.

    There are three cuts of Kingdom of Heaven: Theatrical (145min), Director's (190min) and Director's Cut Roadshow, which retains the overture, intermission, and exit music (194min). The original BD just has the Director's Cut and a trailer; the Ultimate Edition BD has all three cuts via seamless branching, audio commentaries and trivia tracks. On a second disc the latter has all the copious, differing extras from the 2-DVD Theatrical and 4-DVD Director's Cut sets.

    The Gandhi DVD was excellent, one of the best I've seen. I did upgrade but the Blu-ray disc is not a major improvement.

    Humor is subjective and you and I can go back and forth all day on what is and isn't funny. What it boils down to is that we simply don't have the same sense of humor. I also can't stand Laurel & Hardy, the Three Stooges or W.C. Fields. On the other hand, Abbott & Costello, Bob Hope and Jerry Lewis have me in stitches. It's all good. Live and let laugh I say! :)

    I wasn't aware of the ultimate edition blu ray or I would have purchased that instead. Anyway, thanks for the information.

    Hmmm ... when I attempted to update the master list on the original post I noticed the Edit feature is gone. Is this a temporary malfunction or does the HTF have a limit on the amount of times a post can be edited?

    It may have changed but I believe that if you contact an admin, they can make it so you can edit your old post. Otherwise, I think the limit to edit is 24 hours.

    Thanks, Travis. I've contacted the admins. We'll see what happens.

    Until (or if) the admins allow the edit feature. I'll post any additions to the master list right here:

    Big Trail (exit music)
    Hamlet (1997) (intermission)
    Kingdom Of Heaven (overture, intermission, exit music)
    Star Trek: The Motion Picture (overture)

    You are correct with the placement of the Lion in Winter intermission. That's how I saw it way back in it's original Roadshow run in NYC

    Whenever we get Sweet Charity stateside, I sure do hope that Universal will reinstate its Entr'acte.
    Every drop of Ralph Burns work is a treasure.

    Well, I figure that there's one collective Holy Grail that Thomas T and Dick can agree on;
    and that's for the reinstatement of every existing Overture, Intermission, Entr'acte and Exit Music ever put to film.
    Right?:thumbs-up-smiley:

    Thanks for the confirmation that my memory is still intact! It's scary how I can remember details about a movie I saw 50 years ago but can't remember what I had for dinner last night. :(

    I believe that the Twilight Time Blu-ray of Khartoum has the Exit Music as well as the Overture and the Intermission/Entr'Acte.

    Funny, I can still remember the dinners from 1990-1 that were cooked for me by my ex-girlfriend;
    which, in turn, is exactly why she became my ex-girlfriend.:D

    File Under: Swanson and Swan Songs.:cool:
