disappointing due to editing,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Producers (1 Disc Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
This dvd version seems to have been edited/censored(?). There is a major lack of continuity at some points e.g. scene ends where Franz Liebkind is about to sign the contract. In the next scene, we see Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder with swastika armbands. Their arms were clear in the previous scene so where did those come from? Again, in their meeting with Roger de Bris, there are some jumps in conversation which just dont make sense indicating cuts have been made.
As a`result, many parts of the story just dont gel and if I hadnt seen the musical I wouldnt have known what was going on.
If a movie has been edited there should be some indication of this in the description so a buyer knows whether to purchase it or not.
