Alien (1979): Ripley Does Dallas Edition (Extended)
Time

I’ve tried to find a 1080p ultimate cut of Alien that combined all of the footage of the both of the theatrical and the Director’s Cut of Ridley Scott’s Alien, and surprisingly could not find one. I figured this would be something someone would jump on. I could not locate one, so I created my own. (I admit that there is a possibility that one exists but that I could not find it, due to the generic term ALIEN and it coming up with so many results, so if this is a repeat, then I apologize).

This is what I would consider to be just an Extended version of the film, since my understanding is that even more footage can be found on the Alien Anthology and the Alien Legacy documentary. (which I’d love to may look into one day, when I get those items)

The base of the film is the Director’s Cut because it adds some CGI to make the outer space scenes more visually palatable in certain scenes. This basically combines all of the footage of the two version of the film with one minor exception… near the end of the film when the Alien comes upon Jones the cat, the Director’s Cut’s version is used as I liked it better. It gave more purpose to the Alien as it was only going after the crew members, including Ripley, and it could care less about the cat. It also tells us why the cat cage was where it was found by Ripley after she abandoned it and why it wasn’t upright. Also, between the two versions, there are two different scenes behind the medic bay glass after Kane comes in contact with the face hugger and is brought back onboard and his suit helmet is removed. I made a slight adjustment to have both versions shown as they are basically different ends of the same scene, and this still creates a very cohesive story line.

I elected to call this the Ripley Does Dallas version because the Director’s Cut adds a scene where
Ripley kills (i.e. Does) Dallas at his request when she stumbles upon him near the end of the film
and figured this would be a very humorous play on words.

Run times:

1:56:38 Theatrical
1:55:50 Director’s Cut
2:01:15 Extended Edition

Send me a PM if you’d be interested in seeing it. I’d appreciate feedback as I’m still new to this…

I wasn’t sure where the best place to ask this was so I plugged for here as the OP mentions it.

I’ve lost my old copy of the workprint and was trying to locate another copy.

A PM if you can help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

I’ve searched the web high and low for the workprint and only turned up a torrent thats been dead for years. If anyone in this thread has it to share I’d be eternally grateful.

I would love a copy of this too please.

Thanks for the upload. Is there any way that you could also post a 1080p version?

Sadly that’s the best I could do. sorry.

But didn’t you use Blu Ray as your source material?

Mod Edit: Do no post links to projects on here.

Please take the time to read the Fan Edit / Preservation Forum Rules and FAQ - and also take the time to look around this place, to see how it works - and how it does not.

Thanks for the upload. Is there any way that you could also post a 1080p version?

I also assume you used all elements of the theatrical and director’s cut…?

Yes that is what I used. the only parts I used from the Director’s Cut where the Cocoon Scene and the Alien and cat scene

Actually, in the director’s cut, these scenes are longer:

12:39 Min. - 14:14 Min. The Nostromo Crew is examining the mysterious signal more precisely. It sounds strange. It is neither a radio signal nor is it a voice. But the crew finds out which planet the signal comes from.

34:24 Min. - 34:36 Min. Kane is examining the egg more accurately. The facehugger moves. Then, there is a take of Kane bowing to the right with a gun in his hand. The last part of this shot is not in the DC, but in the Theatrical Version, but the main part of the take with Kane bowing is missing in the latter. (Might have to get quick snippets of each to get longest scene, which I would love)

37:43 Min. - 38:32 Min. The crew without Ripley is looking through a glass window into the laboratory. Parker is wondering how Kane can breathe and suggests to freeze the facehugger. Ripley comes down the ladder, Lambert goes for her and slaps her (because Ripley wouldn’t open the lock before). The men get the women apart. Parker says that Ripley hadn’t been wrong.

66:37 Min. - 67:02 Min. In the DC the dropping of the condensed water on Brett’s face in the room with the chains is being interrupted by a short ceilingshot of the lurking alien. Then another part of the close-up to the face. Again, an DC-exclusive take of the alien hanging on the chains. Now facetake part 3 from the Theatrical Version (but strongly cut, so you’d need the longer quick cut from theatrical), again followed by a new ceilingshot with the alien observing Brett.

67:53 Min. - 68:09 Min. After Brett’s screams Ripley and Parker come running into the room with the chains. They’re looking for Brett. When Parker looks up, blood drips on him.

77:02 Min. - 71:09 Min. After the shortened take of Lambert from the TC you can see Ripley stand up and then again Lambert. The DC then begins later compared to the Theatrical Cut, when Ripley already goes to Mother’s door, while in the TC you can still see the thing with the key card.

94:17 Min. - 96:07 Min. Ripley climbs down a ladder and ends up in a room in which Dallas is weaven on the wall as a host for the alien. Dallas whimpers for his death. Ripley grants his wish with the help of the flamethrower.

There are a couple of scenes that require quick snippets from Theatrical Cut to get longest cut, but they are there. I’d love to see this project to completion. If I can help in any way, I’ll be glad to. Just let me know.

Yeah, I made a ‘purist’ version which has all the shots you want. It’s among the links I sent you.

OK…question…if it has the added shots that he described, why is the time exactly the same? (I know that one of them is a replacement as opposed to an addition) Just curious.

If memory serves correct, an extended version is shown from time to time on a Fox cable channel in HD. Does anyone have that?

You could cap it and make it yourself. This is lazy.

I actually would, but I have neither the software, hardware, or expertise to do so. If you could make those accommodations, I would be MORE than happy to, and grab many others that are of interest to you and anyone else.
