"This is something Stanley himself was very, >very desirous of," said Turner Entertainment Co. president Roger Mayer, who >is working on the project. Print elements of the 1968 film have been kept in >pristine condition, and new protection elements were pulled from Kubrick's >negative in 1982. "At Stanley's instigation, the color timing was freshened >up a few years ago, with new 35mm and 70mm prints made," said Dick May, vp >film preservation at Warners, which holds "Odyssey" through its acquisition >of Ted Turner's MGM/UA library. At that time, the sound was digitally >remastered, May said. As many Kubrick fans are aware, after the movie opened >to tepid audience response, the director had 20 minutes excised while the >picture was in limited release. "He never actually pulled (the film); he had >MGM send out editors with an instruction list, and they cut it right there >in the theaters," May said. That footage will not be restored. "This did >come up a few years ago in regard to a video rerelease, and Stanley said >no," May said. "The cut he ended up with was the cut he was happiest with." > > > > >-=============================================================- >-= Send all help/info requests to: =- >-= =- >-=-----------------------------------------------------------=- >-= TO UNSUBSCRIBE: =- >-= Message To: =- >-= Subject: <blank> =- >-=Message Body: unsubscribe =- >-=-----------------------------------------------------------=- >-= Carl Sagan Mailing List Home Page =- >-= =- >-=-----------------------------------------------------------=- >-= This list provided courtesy of CraigerWare Enterprises =- >-= =- >-= Custom software, internet hosting, and the kitchen sink! =- >-=============================================================- > > >
