I posted the below as a response comment to an earlier review - but I thought I'd post this as a review for anyone not fully understanding why the picture of this film is cropped at the top & lower portions on their TV (& for those who have not viewed the restoration documentary). The same will apply for Rogers & Hammerstein's "Carousel"

It's a real shame because Michael Madsen is an actor of merit & certainly the most qualified amongst this cast so it's obvious why he earned the central role (& I hope this was a good earner for him) - everyone else seemed miscast or had no on-screen presence (except for one or two of the small non-English spoken parts I presume performed by local extras).
I don't understand the purpose or the need for a film like this or why it has the need to… Read more
