Long Version (unedited)
19 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am currently 3/20/05 watching the original unedited 3Hr 30Min Version on the True Stories Channel.

It is supposed to be playing again.

Don't be alarmed when the credits start to roll after an hour and a half, it starts right back up again with part 2.

The film has a look that makes you think you are watching a much older movie, plus I am watching on a non-widescreen TV. Doesn't look very good.

I truly enjoyed the historical aspects, and can only hope they were made without adding to many alterations.
