Mistake in Tales of Manhattan Introductions

7 posts in this topic

Tales of Manhattan has aired on TCM three times, I believe once in 2017 and now in January of this year and again this week. I've watched two of those airings. I believe the January, 2018, airing was the one I didn't watch. Anyway, the two times I watched, it was stated in the introduction on both occasions that the print about to be shown would contain a restored segment starring W.C. Fields that had been deleted from the original theatrical release. In fact, on neither of those occasions did the print contain that segment. I can't speak for the one time I didn't watch. I don't care to elaborate, and I'm not trying to cause trouble. I would just like it to be known for the record that this happened.

Seriously, they deleted the thread?

Seriously? 

They cant be troubled to get the intro right twice but they got the time to scrub the thread? 

Wow.

I assume you know there is another thread, going back from 2017 that is more 'complete';  i.e. it has info on the 'special' Fox release of the missing segment.   (i.e. something I either forgot or didn't know).

cmovieviewer has brought that thread back to Page One if moderators want to combine it with this one. I tried to find it, but it was a more daunting task than I realized! Searching for W.C. Fields or Tales of Manhattan or even both together yielded more than 1,300 posts that I just didn't have the patience to sort through. So, my thanks to him (?).
