The Tales of Hoffmann Longer After Restoration
The British musical film The Tales of Hoffmann was made in 1951 and recently got a 4K restoration. As Thelma Schoonmaker told Collider, her team searched for a scene from the third act that was missed by many fans and didn't appear in any of the film's official versions.
Fortunately, the scenes were found in the UK alongside a new epilogue that must have been known to hardly anybode before. The downside is that the audio for that scene in which the dancers and singers are introduced is missing so that something was created out of musical numbers and applause.
A Blu-ray with the long version and the 4K restoration will be released in the UK on March 23rd, 2015. You can order it at Amazon.co.uk.
