Marcia Lucas Speaks!
Time

This is a pretty monumental moment, since George likes to keep a close lid on Marcia’s involvement with the series, despite being the only Lucas to ever win an Academy Award for Star Wars. Nice to hear her voice for once and see her personality. If she was good at pointing out “Where’s Marion?” imagine what she could have contributed to the prequels. Hope she can conduct a more thorough interview in the future. Want to hear her opinion on the Special Editions.

Original dark version of Batman '89?
Time

I saw a 35mm film print of this film a couple of years ago and I have to say that there were no significant differences between it and the Blu-ray release. For example, you could still see Joker's face when he was in the shadows. The Blu-ray transfer was proved by the Director of Photography, Roger Pratt. Also, those screen captures from the teaser trailer are not fair to judge from, due to it's aging and damage. There's supposed to be another edition coming out later this year, so we'll see if Warners is willing to give this another go, but the Blu-ray will be as good as it gets.

Buy the dvd. 

The web exclusive link from the DVD no longer works.

Apparently the rapidshare links are down as well. Does anyone still have all of this? I'd love to grab these.

Yes, I would greatly appreciate this as well. I'm curious to hear the details that were cut out for the Despecialized edition.

It's one of the multiple tracks on the Despecialized Edition of A New Hope.

If you aren't in the market to buy the DVD why don't you just send Harmy a pm?  I'm sure he'd be able to answer your question since you heard it on one of his projects.

:)

I tried, but got no response.

I hadn't heard of these until the Despeciaized edition of A New Hope came out. I would be interested in hearing the full commentary, since it was edited to be played with the original version. Does someone have these commentaries? I tried to look them up, but couldn't find anything, because I didn't catch what the commentator's name was.

Does anyone have these archived? I found the Criterion Collection James Bond commentaries recently and I've archived the commentary for Carrie and Singin' in the Rain.

I Wonder Why...

That was the excuse for not doing a complete restoration overhaul, which I accept at not being in the cards. I just want to see Lucas dig up prints of the films, which aren't faded and have minimal amounts of scratches and transfer them to high definition and BOOM, best of both worlds. Take some lessons from the Star Trek Blu-rays, which managed to include the original effects and a high definition print of the original version of Where No Man Has Gone Before, obtained from outside the studio.

Lucas can release old trailers of the films, but not transfer a theatical print to high definition, as well.
