Here’s a case of an old movie that’s been abandond by paramount until recently. The thing is the original cut is in the public domain and is available from lower quality releases. then in 2013 paramount release a restored dvd for their archive editions in the form of an extended cut with a new copyright and the theatrical wasn’t included.
Now twilight time has licensed the film for a limited edition bluray, but again it’s only the extended cut and this time it has the surround sound. Not that there’s anything wrong with the extended cut, but being a collector I want both versions, So I’ll be re-cutting it to it’s theatrical version again.
I assume the colors are accurate as I’ve only seen low quality releases of the original so I wont be messing with the bluray color timing, Unless someone knows something I don’t. I also would like to make a surround sound track, but my editor only supports stereo so that may be a while down the road.
