SHOUT AT THE DEVIL, uncut on MGM-HD, thought it would never happen

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My favorite non-007 Roger Moore film is the underrated and much ignored SHOUT AT THE DEVIL, which also stars Lee Marvin and Barbara Perkins. Almost immediately after its 1976 release the studio cut it to pieces, from around 150 minutes to just under 120. Various cut versions are all that have been seen over the years.

Well, I recorded the film on MGM-HD the other night and was stunned to find that the time slot was 2 hours and 50 minutes. I went to the end of the film and it was at the 2 hour and 31 minute mark. Scanning back I found one four minute block of commercials. So this is the longest version of the film I have ever come across and it is just about as long as the original release print.

I'll be sitting down to watch it all tonight. There should be additional showings this month and next.

2.35:1 and it looks darned good. Pretty good stereo sound. This will never EVER be deleted off my DVR.

I'm not surprised. MGM-HD recently ran the 4-hour version of HEAVEN'S GATE.

The questions is, where did they get the print? 110 minutes was the release print length in the USA. Some TV showings throughout the USA were just over 2 hours and I have had one recorded to SVHS since forever. Foreign DVD's, the two that have been released, were cut so how the heck did this happen?!

I just checked Netflix and they have that movie for instant view and show it as 149 minutes. It's not in HD though.

Read the book years ago, didn't know they made a movie of it.

I just started watching the movie on Netflix and it looks DVD quality and looks to be in OAR.

Yep, I've pretty much had that Motley Crue song running through my head ever since I saw the thread title!

I saw that last half hour. Since getting MGM-HD earlier this year, it's my favorite movie channel. TCM-HD is good too even though the movies don't appear to be HD. The other "big 4" channels just show the current movie drivel over and over throwing in a decent movie once in a while.

Yeah, you would have to find someone who actually has the legal right to sell it to you before you could offer them forty pounds Sterling for a copy.

Either buy a legitimate copy of the movie or seek your torrents elsewhere. Good day to you sir!!

Although a DVD wouldn't be HD. I doubt it's on BR so I'd think like what JimboG mentioned(torrents) might be his only option. Nice find though Funny thing about the reviews of that DVD, it says region free(0) but the first reviewer said it was the wrong region and wouldn't play on his US player The second reviewer had no such problem....
