    I thought you guys might be interested at what i found at http://www.davisdvd.com/News/rumors.htm

    » 12.28.02 SPIELBERG TALKS SPECIAL EDITIONS

    While promoting Catch Me If You Can on "The Today Show," director Steven Spielberg touched upon deleted scenes and a couple of his upcoming special edition DVDs. There is about 1 hour of deleted scenes from Schindler's List and 35 minutes from Catch Me If You Can that he plans putting on respective discs. I've also heard from some sources that, if not presented separately, Spielberg may reinstate the deleted footage back into the body of Schindler's List.

    Spielberg better not insert anything into Schindler's List. It was a wonderful movie but quite long already.

    Just as long as he does not insert the deleted Schindler's List scenes into Catch Me if You Can. That would totally change the tone of the movie. [​IMG]

    That's wonderful news that Schindler's List is 'in the works'. I'm hoping that I'm not misreading the post. Maybe this is an indicator of a release this year yet [​IMG] .

    I'm quite indifferent as to whether a separate or integrated deleted footage would make sense. As indicated, I suspect an original theatrical cut would be included anyway. I'm quite intrigued about the content of an 'additional hour' of deleted material.

    Once SL is out my only 'strong wish list item' remaining would be 'African Queen'. Anyone hear about an R1 release for AQ?

    In the new version of Schindler's List, the Nazis will be carrying walkie talkies.

    I saw that interview and the way I interpreted what he said was that he has the deleted scenes on a disc in his PRIVATE collection.

    Just my thoughts

    I dunno, this whole walkie talkie thing got tired pretty fast, I mean, it's not that big a deal anyway. Spielberg includes both versions on each edition of the dvd, which is certainly more then we can expect from the Lucas camp.

    Im just glad Schindlers List is finally comin to DVD. If he does two different cuts, he's gonna nee 4 discs alone for that. Thats if they include DTS, which he probably will. They could pass on the DTS for the Theatrical cut and make it one disc and then a disc or two of extras, makin it a 4-5 disc set. Ohhh....thats sweetness.

    I'd like to see this release as well. It's not a film I'd watch repeatedly, but it is a truly horrifying and amazing film.

    If any documentary material is included, I wonder if Billy Wilder will be mentioned. He was apparently involved in SL early on, and may have done a little work on the screenplay. I think I remember reading [was it an interview or was it "Coversations with Wilder"? I can't recall...] that he had hoped to actually direct the film before Spielberg got involved.

    Because of his history in films and the fact that he lost family members [his mother, I believe] in the death camps, it would be nice to see him receive credit for whatever influence he had on the movie...IF he indeed had any input.

    Because of this thread i've actually now tonight gotten around to giving my SL LD a spin which I bought back in July and was sitting on the shelf since then. Have the first side watched........... forgot how beautiful the photography is. Also how harrowing it is as well. I still have the clearing of the ghetto scene to come now when I watch the rest tomorro.
