Last night's "The Thing"

Recommended Posts

I didn't watch this showing, but I assume they either use the same tape each time or else the movie is stored in a digital server so there shouldn't be any difference from showing to showing. However, there are some scenes in the film that are not the same quality as the rest of it.One of them is in the early part of the film which takes place in the general's office. It's like this in every version I've seen including the DVD. Seems to me I recall reading that the original negatives were damaged for these scenes and they had to "dupe" footage from 16mm prints, thus causing the drop in quality. I don't think this replacement footage accounts for more than 4 or 5 minutes of running time.
