Re: The Continuity of Days Gone By

^By the way, this is off-topic, but I keep wondering about that line in your signature, "Ze director's cut is ze film you saw in ze theater." I wonder where that's from, because it's certainly not true, at least not in Hollywood. In the Hollywood system, studios, not directors, get the final cut on movies, so that the theatrical version is often different from what the director wanted -- which is the whole reason that director's-cut DVDs exist at all, and the reason the "Alan Smithee" credit exists, for situations where directors take their names off a film to protest changes made to it against their will.
