Further evidence of 103 minute version…

...commercially released versions (VHS / DVD / Blu Ray / HD DVD) are all 98 minutes in length...we need to have WB find the "work print", similar to newly released Blade Runner DVD set! Who's in?

Me too! And do you have more scans from the above material? (I'd like to read the whole synopsis.)

Re: Further evidence of 103 minute version…

I purchased a 16mm trailer reel off of eBay a few weeks ago. The good news: it has approx 6 trailers for OMEGA MAN and is in pretty good shape with absolutely no splices or vinegar smell. The color has gone somewhat pink however. The bad news: no evidence of cut scenes.

What did that run you, in terms of dollars? Also, you have something to play that on?

Re: Further evidence of 103 minute version…

The seller used the Buy It Now format and I caught it as soon as it was posted. $30 delivered. I think it would have sold for much more if the seller sold it in auction format. 1971 era Omega Man stuff usually fetches a premium. I don't have a 16mm projector so I had to look at it manually.

Too bad you don't have a projector, Mike ... I envisioned you sitting in your darkened living room, machine gun propped next to you, mouthing Neville's lines as he mouths the lines from Woodstock ...

Mike, bring the reel along with you on our LA get-together, and we can watch OM like it was REALLY meant to be viewed!
