collecting was great, but home video was so much sharper (and better color), that it became obsolete.
alamocentral wrote:Dear Friends, I have just exchanged emails with Robert Harris (the film restorer). The effort to restore The Alamo (even the short version)...is "DEAD IN THE WATER". If anyone sees an advertisment for a 70mm screening of the film, it will be the short version (like my print). They talk about showing such a print at the Karlsruhe Film Festival (it is not complete). I'm sorry to dowse your hopes!

some sort of award at least for all his effort and hard work bless

Regards and thank you for the update
Doc wrote:You made a smart purchase. The disc is a big improvement over VHS. It also has the longer version of the Huberman documentary. I kept my old laser disc player just so I can watch this version. You can probably find a cheap disc player at a used record store or video store. It's worth it because I don't believe that the director's cut will ever be released in Blu Ray.

is becoming a lost film.
