Recommended Posts

TCMProgrammer of anyone else know if the print of "Kiss Me Deadly" that is screening tomorrow is the restored print with the original ending?

The house explodes but up until the restoration, there were missing scenes:


From imagejournals.com:


The correct sequence of the ending, which is not exactly as scripted, consists of four events: (1) the house begins to explode; (2) Hammer and Velda stumble into the surf and turn to look back; (3) the house explodes into flames and the title, "The End," emerges from the center of the frame, comes forward optically, and remains superimposed over a last shot (4) of Hammer and Velda holding each other at the water's edge.


That is why I am hoping TCM shows the restored version but would like to know because if I get all the way to the end and it's not the restored version then I will be a bit upset.
