I always wondered why that song wasn't longer. They make a big to-do over it and then almost as soon as it begins, it's over. I'm glad we'll finally be seeing the whole thing.

Hopefully, a certain big-eared mouse will hear about this and respond accordingly…

Portobello Road extended is just a tad too long.

The edits on the short version are painfully obvious and the dissolves were not necessary. Either way, that same mentality carried over here to this movie. All because of some teenage boys who complained. Whenever the studio starts demanding stuff gets cut, invariably it's musical numbers that suffer the worst of it.

10 mins is a bit long for a dance number don't you think.

Compared to this?


Addams Family Values also has a cut song*: the Camp Chippewa anthem:


*And speaking of names that movie dropped, if they can find that, then hopefully Columbia knows where this is.

That number is longer than 10 minutes. WB tried fiddling with it only to find it was better off before they started fiddling with it. That's why they put it back.

Such is the case here. IIRC the cuts were made after Paramount picked up the film from Orion who went into bankruptcy. Would they have acted any differently? Who knows.

Paramount gives you a choice. The rat took it away.
