The standard "This film has been modified from its orginal version. It has been reformatted to fir your TV." shows up. What it SHOULD say is: "This film has been radically altered from its original version. All adult situations have been cut out, all cursing has been erased, all sexually-charged, character-developing moments have been eliminated!"
There is a brilliantly-hilarious scene in the original in which Bissett has a "Mile-High Club" experience on a TWA Flight from LA to JFK. Cukor juxtapositioned this with voice-overs about plane equipment, flying and landing. All cut from this video.
There is amazingly sweet, erotic moment when Bissett has an encounter with an beautiful 18-year old gigolo, portrayed by Matt Latanzi. Tastefully filmed, great musical accompaniment by Georges Delerue. It changes Bisset's views about youth and opens her to her upcoming romance with a younger man. All but sliced from this version.Read more ›
As you may have read in other customer reviews the "MGM Movietime" VHS copy of this film is the edited television version!
Now Warner Bros. (which owns all "MGM" films made by the studio before 1986) has issued this title on VHS again with new cover box art that is beautifully packaged including the original movie poster artwork and ever the "WB" logo on the box!
But, guess what! You open the plastic wrap and it's the same VHS tape that contains the edited version complete with the "MGM" logo! That means that Warner Bros. went through the trouble to design a new cover box and again sell the incorrect version of the film with no disclamer on the package!
The tape begins with the caption "This film has been modified from it's original version, it has been formatted to fit this screen" (as do all non widescreen / letterbox formats) What the caption should include is "This film has been edited for content and is not the orginal theatrical R rated version of this film"
The new cover box artwork (which is not as pictured at Amazon as of this writing 11/21/03) is what compelled me to purchase this "WB" edition. I figured the error has been corrected and I could enjoy a fresh, new video transfer of one of my all time faves!
No such luck!! This is the worst VHS edition of all!!! The picture quality is so poor and blurry, it seems as if there is plastic wrap over my TV screen! The sound quality is so bad that I need to have the volume almost all the way up and even then it's as if the dialouge is being spoken into a tin can!Read more ›
