Godfather restauriert

Die letzte Ausgabe der Godfather-Trilogie von Francis Ford Coppola war 2001 mit einem Kommentar des Regisseurs und umfangreichem Zusatzmaterial erschienen. „Godfather newly restored“ schallt es nun durchs Web und die einen sind begeistert und die anderen stöhnen, dass schon wieder eine neue Edition von dieser schon so oft verkauften Trilogie erscheinen soll. Jeffrey Walls berichtet im Blog Hollywood Elsewhere Genaueres über die Umstände:

“ Blue-chip restoration guru Robert Harris has been working on a photo-chemical restoration of all three Godfather films for the last few months, and the results may be digitally viewable as soon as December…

According to an 8.18 posting by „Adam S.“ on a Godfather restoration discussion at Home Theatre Forum, „Coppola showed up on Monday August 6th, after a screening of Godfather III at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn theater. He didn’t arrive until about an hour into a six person q & a with a variety of people in or attached to the film. He said it was a bit surreal to be there after we’ve been watching Godfather III because he had just come from the first viewing of the new restoration of the original Godfather, which he said ‚it looks ‚incredible.‘

„Coppola also mentioned that the negative was basically going to dissolve, or very close to complete loss and it would have cost millions of dollars to restore. Paramount was not going to foot the bill for it, he said, but that after Paramount became Dreamamount Spielberg himself made sure they knew they had to restore The Godfather, and the restoration went forward. [But] there was absolutely no mention of a DVD release.“ (Jeffrey Walls)
