Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, and restoration producer Rick Schmidlin discuss the reconstruction, which Murch assembled according to Welles 58-page memo (the box includes a reproduction). To Heston, the old credit sequence was "grotesque." As Welles instructed, Murch moved it to the end. About the overhaul, Leigh enthuses, "I'm so grateful that his legacy will now be represented in the proper way." On the second track, Schmidlin offers a more detailed analysis. The package concludes with the trailer and a two-part oral history featuring Heston, Leigh, Murch, and others who helped Welles transform pulp material into a work that, in his own words, could prove to be "irresistibly interesting." --Kathleen C.

|Still the wrong aspect ratio||
Yes, I ordered this new 3-version edition hoping that at least the old studio version (which I loved and grew up watching on VHS) would be presented in the correct aspect ratio for DVD. It's ironic that this new package with all it's bells and whistles refused to present it back in the correct... Read More
