Sadly I have just looked up the particular film distribution company who put forward the copyright complaint/issue to youtube and going by the web they still have distribution rights to it.

I am a little bit miffed since I had put the time, effort and a little bit of funding into edited some of the scenes to make them more clean and fluent on the audio and motion front.

It’s just one of those things I suppose 😦

Note from wikipedia…

The film is mistakenly believed to be in the public domain, when in reality it has a proper copyright notice in the end credits.

I’m pretty sure that copyright expired a while back because if it hadn’t I don’t think that so many different versions would exist out in the wild and I bet you we’d also have an actual good copy of the widescreen version

Hi Everyone,

Sadly I have had to put this on hold, since I have just had a copyright strike from youtube about a previous upscaled 16:9 version and it has been taken down. So I am guessing it would be the same for a new proper scale 16:9 version!

From my understanding this was free from copyright rules/laws but apparently not!

Sorry everyone 😦

I’ve literally seen the whole movie on YT! Darn YouTube always throwin’ strikes out left and right. I’d recommend trying Dailymotion if you attempt to upload again.

The Wizard of Mars (1965) - Theatrical Cut Reconstruction and Restoration (WIP)
Time

So I just found this on YouTube…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVcwNzI2i3o&t=24s

I can tell by the opening that it is the theatrical cut of the film. I have no idea how this person got a hold of it or where it came from but it’s only the first 9 minutes of the film and it was the only video this channel uploaded so I’m not sure what this means… I started working on the reconstruction using the “Horrors of the Red Planet” cut along with the original trailer featuring the original title in 720p… That trailer is better quality than this mystery upload I found so I’m going to stick with that but this video is an amazing reference for the fades and cuts in the opening sequence.

If anyone has any more information on the film or happens to be good at up-scaling, the help would be greatly appreciated. 😃

The Wizard of Mars (1965) - Theatrical Cut Reconstruction and Restoration (WIP)
Time

So I’ve recently been looking into this film called “The Wizard of Mars” and let me tell you, this film has little to no information on it other than some quick facts about the people who were involved in the making of it.

I’m wondering if anyone has any information on it or if any prints or transfers of the original “theatrical” cut still exist.

The highest quality print I could find is from some crappy DVD release that seemed to have taken the 1988 “Horrors of the Red Planet” release of the film and slapped it on a disc.

Any help in finding and possibly restoring this film would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone else think Empire Strikes Back's Special Edition is actually better than the Theatrical Cut?

The only things good to come out of the SE IMO was the Wampa additions and Ian McDiarmid… That’s about it. I wish we could get some sort of home video release that’s like a “make your own Star Wars” kinda thing. IDK… Just my thoughts on the matter.

You mean like select the version of each altered scene you want and it plays it for you? Thatd be cool. It’s too bad no one could legitmately do that as a business for fans and prodice a custom edit based on multiple options.

Too bad… Too bad indeed…

Is the Laserdisc worth it for ones own private collection if they can get it for 35 dollars? The Japanese release i mean.

I have the VHS somewhere. But i seem to have misplaced it.

I mean if you want it just for your collection sure but if it’s for the widescreen version I was able to get a download link from a YouTube user neamed “liscensetodrive” who made a test video of it much earlier. All credit goes to that dude.
