  • Longing for a Director's Cut of "...Forum"

    My parents showed wonderfully questionable judgment in taking me for my first viewing of this marvelous film during a 1967- or 1968 re-release...when I was, accordingly, just 9 or 10 years old. The animated closing credits animation alone was worth the price of admission! Of course, most of the licentious content went straight over-my-head during my first viewing, but I did rapidly catch-on during subsequent viewings - when with family and friends, I made the point of seeking out- and attending Art House showings over the following years. I give the original version of that movie five (5) stars......but the subsequent butchering edits of the film would diminish the story continuity - yielding a 3.5 to 4-star rating.And it was during these subsequent viewings that I was horrified to find song-after-song, and scene-after-scene `vanishing' from every later showing (when I challenged one theater owner on this, he surmised that projectionists had been `snipping-out' favored segments for their own black-market collections). The edit which angered me most was the disappearance of the entire scene set around the crucial duet "Free"...after Hero's miscalculated catapult launch towards Philia's window lands him in the pine tree where Pseudolus is hiding from his `beast-bride'. I've rented any available video copy of the film, and have seen the run times shrivel to the 98-minutes listed here... Over the (pre-web) decades, I have attempted to seek complete copies from (then) surviving actors including as Jack Gilford...to no avail.I'm renewing those efforts now (perhaps too little, too late)

    I think that this movie is one of the best and most entertaining performances of a Broadway show. Richard Lester is a genius in his directing this movie. Each viewing, as in most of his movies, finds action in each corner of the screen, and only subsequent viewings discovers these hidden gems. I enjoy the film each time I view it and I have done so numerous times.Highly recommended!!!
