Okay, so I can get my hands on the theatrical version.. 105 minutes, director's cut.. 138 minutes and I've seen the international vesrion.. 124 minutes.... What I am wondering... is if anyone knows where I can get my hands on the 150 minutes original cut... or if a composite can be made using alternate footage from different versions... if that exists?

I know you are probably asking yourself.... who in the hell wants an extended version of the THAT MOVIE..... well... I figured eventually some more extended versions of the Superman movies will probably be on their way at some point so why not complete the collection with every extended version possible?

Thanks in advance... and sorry for the mention of this movie ; )

I have never actually seen Supergirl. but over the years I had heard a lot of people wanting that extended edition that came out a few years ago. So there is obviously an audience. And hey..we all have our guilty pleasures. And good thing that we do. Otherwise all that would be available on DVD would be an average limited Blockbuster type stock of titles.

I wouldn't mind seeing this project. I'm still trying to track down the collector two dvd set at a non-eBay inflated price. Since the 150 OC was only seen at the studio, I would imagine any version floating around would be a workprint.

The Anchor Bay 2 DVD set with the International and Director's Cut, yes. I'm still kicking myself for having not bought it when it came out years ago.

maybe i worded my post wrong i would want to see it but i think that to re edit it could be to longer struggle infact i think that in order to make a good version of the film u'd have to refilm it. The problems i have with the original film is:

1. the whole scene with the poster of superman just seemed so cheesey it was unreal
2. why oh why does did they pick mark mcclure to play jimmy again, i know that cross overs are a good way to bring in the audience but i think he looked out of place

I don't think that the 150 minute original cut exists anymore, or if it does, its in film caninsters sealed away. I think the released/televised versions were either the theatrical, directors, or international. I think the 150 minute version has never been seen outside of a showing or two to the studio insiders.

Supergirl is a much better film in it's longer cut. Jeannot Szwarc tried to do something a bit diffrent then Lester with this, and had a change of tone for his film.

Supergirl is alot beter then Superman 3 or 4, and it gets a bum rap because at the time of it's release, fans truly wanted a return to the style and feel of Superman One, but we got more of a preview of "Santa Claus: The Movie" with blond hair and nice tits.

I have the Anchor Bay double DVD set, and it would be nice to just trim a few very very small parts out of the longer version.

The Jimi / Lucy sex chat stuff at the end comes to mind...
