I had seen this telepic when it originally aired in 1978. I saw it again today on Starz' True Stories channel. It was supposed to run 150 minutes, but on True it barely ran 90 minutes! So while the quality of the film and the acting were quite good, and attention to detail was fascinating, I somehow felt cheated that True would see fit to knock about an hour off the running time! People were listed in the closing cast credits that never appeared in this version.
The musical numbers were very good, the atmosphere was accurate, and the general tenor of the film (what there was of it) was enjoyable. It would be nice if this were available on DVD, in an uncut version!
