Dear Tack,

I am a new member to this forum and am fascinated with Steven Speilberg’s 1970’s masterpiece (actually virtually every movie he makes is a masterpiece).

I was wondering, would it be possible to combine all of the deleted scenes with the new 4K Blu-ray movie to create a massive [nearly] 3-hour epic.

From what I understand, there are 11 deleted scenes:
In the Desert (where Flight 19 was found)
Roy at the Power Plant (where he is assigned to go out in a truck)
Roy gets directions (from locals in the rural regions of Indiana)
Air East 31 (where the passengers have their cameras and films confiscated)
At the Police Station (where the Sheriff berates his deputies for their reports on the UFOs)
At the barbeque (where Roy stares at a plate of jello)
English lessons (where Claude Lacombe listens to his interpreter)
On the Roof (where Roy is seen looking up at the sky)
Leaving Town (where Roy is confronted by Carl Weathers)
At the Gas Station (where Roy and Jillian are spotted by a helicopter)
In the spaceship (the brilliant scene from the 1980 Special Edition)

If you do combine all of these deleted scenes, I would definately by interested in getting a copy (even paying for it via Paypal if necessary - although that would probably violate the copyright laws).

I eagerly await your reply.

Yours sincerely,
