I actually started watching around 7PM Sat night, & as 10PM approached, I knew it was time for anime comedy. So, I finished Sunday afternoon. Otherwise, I might have thought it was looonger than it ought to have been. But, I got plenty of screenshots for my screensaver.I have the two disc fully restored version with additional footage and the original theatrical release and much prefer the the one I saw as a thirteen year old sitting in a dark theater. I thought the unseen footage would increase the thrill of watching my favorite movie but it didn’t. Not saying it’s bad, just didn’t do anything for me except for maybe where Angel Eyes checked out a Confederate hospital looking for Bill Carson but even then it seemed more of a distraction than an enhancement. I guess you really can’t improve perfection.
