Tom also starred in "I Married a Monster from Outer Space." Good sci-fi film.I always liked Tom Tryon and thought he should have been a star, rather than the almost star he became. I also liked him in The Glory Guys as well as the two films with John Wayne (Longest Day & In Harm's Way).
If you're referring to Sony's R2 (British) release (which I have), it is not pan and scan but in its original aspect ratio of 2.35 Panavision, anamorphic of course. And it's the general release version cut by 20 minutes and frankly I'm grateful for it. Even at 2 1/2 hours, it's an uneven, heavy handed and ponderous anti-war tract and the idea of wading through an additional 20 minutes has me shuddering. I stand to be corrected but I don't think the cut scene with the boy prostitute was even in the American version as the then Hays code wouldn't allow homosexual references (certainly not in children) in movies at the time.Romy Schneider also starred in "The Victors" which, sadly, appears to be a lost film except for
a foreign pan-and-scan release.
I saw THE VICTORS in HD 2.35 on the Sony Channel a few years ago. It looked fantastic but it was the 156 minute cut version.Romy Schneider also starred in "The Victors" which, sadly, appears to be a lost film except for
a foreign pan-and-scan release. Anyone have any information about this?
Yes, I ordered it, too. I was so glad it was available.Whenever I find out a soundtrack is on Kritzerland I dread it because if it is a title I want it is certain to be sold out and as they are limited pressings you're not going to find it again except for outrageous prices on ebay. Well miracles of miracles The Cardinal is still available so I grabbed it. Remember seeing it as a boy on TV(Kind of tough stuff for a little kid) as well as Moon Pilot on The Wonderful World of Disney. Maybe that might come out on bluray someday.
