The 2 Ewok Films - '<strong>Caravan Of Courage</strong>' (aka 'The Ewok Adventure'), &amp; '<strong>Battle For Endor</strong>'
Time

Good question! It’s been murky if Fox/Lucasfilm ever had the film elements or Nelvana had them. They lost some stuff in a vault fire some years ago, and the workprint of Rock & Rule was a casualty.

The Story Of The Faithful Wookiee? I have never heard the animated segment called that before…

This is gonna offend a lot of the bootyblasted reactionary demographic, but it’s actually really easy to not be called bigoted by progressives. If you think it’s difficult at all, it is a personal failure on your part and nobody is required to cater to and make exceptions for your bad behavior.

Oh yes, everyone who doesn’t bow to the left indoctrination has failed, failed in being a complete retard. LOL
Congratulations to Gina Carano, for not being a complete retard.

Kindly do not use the R word around here again. It’s offensive.

If there is a good reason to be pissed off at Disney this week, it’s that they have shuttered Blue Sky studios forever, (which they got in the Fox deal) putting hundreds out of work and scuttling their latest animated film Nimona, when it was less than a year from completion!

Disney will make money off of the corpse, as the Ice Age characters are worth more to them than the studio that actually created them. Sadly, only animation fans will notice or care about such things.

The Shining - 35mm print opportunity (a WIP)

Aside from the hospital scene, (which was cut after the opening weekend in the U.S, and not in any UK version to my knowledge) I’m not aware of any other variations. Are you able to take screenshots?

Some foreign prints had Jack’s typed pages in different languages as well as the title cards.

Restoring every variation of the “All work and no play…” scene in different languages would be an interesting side project (not to mention the foreign title cards as well). Being a native French speaker, I’m especially curious to see pages that read “Un tiens vaut mieux que deux tu l’auras”.

However, I don’t expect to see these pages in Japanese. It looks like these adaptations (as they are not direct translations) were all done using the latin alphabet with the same typewritter : https://theoverlookhotel.com/post/18776071001/italian-il-mattino-ha-loro-in-bocca-the.

As soon as I am able to grab anything, I will let you know. I bought this LaserDisc off eBay, and it’s shipping directly from Japan, so it will take a while. The LaserDisc player I bought might not work at all (it was surpringly cheap), so I am not holding my breath.

While looking for the Japanese version, I came across this shot of Jack Nicholson in an old tv ad. I know it’s a different take from the final movie, but does the open matte version of your 35mm print has so much headroom?

It’s the entire frame, so lots of headroom. In one or two scenes bits of lighting equipment can be seen, and an overhead microphone can be seen in Jack’s closeup when he talking to Lloyd. Given that the rest of the film seems to have used wireless mikes, (if you’ve seen the making of doc Jack is seen removing one taped to his body) I found that interesting!

A few screenshots just to give you an idea of dimensions etc.
I don’t think there’s any extra information in the image.

Thanks for the images! I see a bit more headroom than other open matte transfers. I would be interested in seeing the whole thing one of these days.
