At Long Last Love - First Time on Home Video

Musical Recently Released on Blu-ray in the US

Gloriously tanked at the box office and smalled by many critics, director Peter Bogdanovic had almost forgotten his musical film At Long Last Love that he shot with Burt Reynolds and Cybill Shepherd in 1975. A home video release had not happened since the theatrical run. Only TV airings and Netflix were proof of its existence. And here's where Bogdanovich got a nice surprise.

After a first cut failed to impress the audience, extensive changes were applied but couldn't save the film's further catastrophic run in theaters that led to a financial flop. Obviously, James Blakely, a cutter at FOX studios wasn't too happy about that and so he assembled his own cut of the movie in 1979 without the film's director knowing anything about it. From that point on, this was the regular version of the movie that aired on US TV. A VHS or DVD never got released.

More than 30 years later, Bogdanovich got more and more comments from people who saw and liked his movie. Obviously, the Blakely Cut of the film was quite popular on the streaming platform Netflix. Bogdanovich then watched it and was enthusiastic. He found it to be better as the botched theatrical version and even better than his own last cut from 1975. Bogdanovich met with 20th Century Fox and they quickly came to an agreement that this version should be put out on Blu-ray. For that, Bogdanovich took Blakely's version, added 90 seconds and optimized some things here and there.

This Blu-ray was released in the US on June 4th, 2013, and is surely something for musical fans and for those who are interested in such production stories. You can order it at Amazon.com.
