I always thought that LORD JIM was originally a roadshow. I have a copy of the souvenir program, which is frequently available on E-Bay. The mother of one of my friends at the time saw it in New York, where, she said, it was longer than it is now, with a lot more talky sections by, among others, the James Mason character. At one point, Columbia had announced a laser release that would have a running time of around 180 mins. However, everyone else on this Board, it seems, says it never had a running time that long, and has always been the time it is now, about 158 mins. or so.

But I still think my friend's mother saw a longer version, and would like to see that some day.

I'd also love a complete soundtrack release of Bronislau Kaper's score, though I've heard it is lost. (Something that sounds like the original Entr'Acte is on the released recording, available on FSM, but I'm not aware of an overture or exit music.)

Oh well.

    The Collector
    Sound Of Music
    Cat Ballou
    Greatest Story Ever Told
    King Rat
    Bunny Lake Is Missing
    Patch of Blue
    Repulsion

    ( While these are not my favorite movies, I must say that three of my favorite scores were composed for 1965 movies: Hallelujah Trail (didn't like the movie, but the music is amazing), Sons Of Katie Elder, and The Glory guys.)

    Then whatever you do don't look at the DVD, it's REALLY soft with flat faded colours. Sony do some great work on their older films these days, & I'm hoping that a stunning looking Blu-ray is released, maybe next year.

    Yes, I saw the DVD a year before I saw the 70mm showing and thought it was just OK. It was that showing that really made me realize how much of the experience I was missing. I hope a better transfer is in the works, but even more so I hope the Cinerama in Seattle schedules "Jim" again for one of their future 70mm fests. smile

    One of the spookiest movies ever because of its documentary treatment.

    It premiered in Cannes in 1965 and Imdb has listed it as a 1965 movie (I had mistakenly considered it as a 1966 movie in the first place).

    I completely forgot...


















    An outstanding soviet movie that has had trouble with censorship and eventually got released a few years ago only in its originally intended 3 hours-long cut.

    One of my oldest film books is Kevin Brownlow's, How It Happened Here, about the making of It Happened Here. He & John Mollo started filming it on 16mm, & after bumping into Stanley Kubrick at London's NFT (as you do!), & telling him about the project, Kubrick agreed to give him the 35mm short ends from Doctor Strangelove, so what started filming in 1956 as an amateur 16mm film, over the years became a professional film that opened at the London Pavilion cinema (I saw quite a few films there). It's a great book, if you can find a copy. Over the years I ran a few films on telecine for Kevin Brownlow, a really nice guy.

    Short ends = the bit of film left on the roll that you don't use. If you're doing long takes & there's only 200'of film left on the roll, then you'd take it out & reload so as not to run out of film half way through a take...something you really don't want to do with Kubrick directing!

    And after all that...I've never seen the film!

    Many thanks for the tip !

    I had the chance to meet this very gentle and nice guy three years ago in France and he autographed me two books (Lean's biography and Hollywood). He's a terrific story teller. We had a nice chat after the run of WINSTANLEY. Of course I forgot half of the questions I had intended to ask him but it happened to be a very nice encounter.

    He's a very modest person and seemed very surprised to be asked by so many people to autograph some of his books.

    Can't wait to find and read the book you mention.

    Thanks !

    My pleasure, Angelillo. Watkins did some great work, very sad he's almost completely forgotten now.
