I originally compiled the Quentin Tarantino screen play edit but after completing it I preferred the chronological order way better. It felt more in keeping with this storyline. So, I’ve made a hybrid of Tarantino’s, The Theatrical cut and the Directors version to tell the story I love from this amazing couple.

While I’ve tried to add as much footage as possible, I was able to remove a lot of the dotlace from the deleted scenes but they’re not perfect. They were in very poor quality but we’ve upscaled them and tried to highlight as much detail as possible using Topaz and other software. Thanks to Skenera for the help.

• Option to have Gangster come back from the dead to shoot the cop or have Alabama. So, I decided to have Alabama kill the cop for justice after killing the security guard.

• Fix colourgrade issues between Theatrical and Directors cuts. Each scenes colour feels completely different so hopefully now it’ll feel more balanced.

• Option to keep Clarence death or have him come back like in the original. I decide to have a happy ending for this couple. Mainly because Alabama seems really bitter and out of character for the alternative ending, and the fact I much prefer them having a Child called Elvis.

If there’s a Tarantino film out there that’s in need of a good editing job, it’s this one! I wish you the best of luck with this project, and I can’t wait to see it myself!

I have altered Lucas’ visions. Pray I don’t alter them any further.
