  • After Welles' final cut, "The Magnificent Ambersons" ran 131 minutes. RKO put it into sneak previews, found audience response disappointing, and ordered drastic recutting. Some 50 minutes were taken out, many of the later scenes were rearranged, and a new "happy ending" was shot. The butchered version, lasting 88 minutes, was released on the lower half of a double bill with a Lupe Velez vehicle, "Mexican Spitfire See a Ghost" (USA/1942).
