Is it possible to make an original '71 edit using the letterbox laserdisc? Being how people who’ve seen the Grindhouse version say the only real differences are a few scenes near the middle have been switched around, and an extended scene with SEN and the boys (does this mean the '71 verson has the 30 extra seconds or the '78 edit)?

I know the color timing of the widescreen LD’s have been altered (both US and Japan) but Cedric T Sealion said the original P&S NTSC vhs has the correct timing. I’m wondering if the first Japan P&S laserdisc is the same as this vhs he’s talking about? (cat# 08JL-611620).

The lack of communication(updates) has been really unfortunate, especially for those of us who donated money to this project.

I was about to post the same thing. I know there have been lots of real-world things in people’s lives that have affected this project. But it’s been six years at this point and the donors have nothing to show for their support. At the very least, there needs to be some kind of communication happening.

That’s impossible, even for a computer.

Hard disks and all are in the hands of Poita, who’s had a very very unfortunate succession of health issues that I’m not allowed to go into, but I trust that it will be completed when he gets better. I’m the first one who would like to see that restoration complete, I adore this film. Some projects are just not very lucky, but I trust that it will see the light of day eventually.
