24 Hours to Midnight (1985)
OK, I confess, I did it...
OK, I needed a job in 1991 (or thereabouts, I really can't remember)...and I was friends with Leo Fong...a very nice guy and hopeful film-maker. He enlisted my help to resurrect a film that had been started a few years earlier, and then quickly abandoned, after a dispute between Cynthia and her boyfriend, and the producer(s) of the film. My job was to retrieve the printed work-print and sound rolls from a storage vault in Hollywood (during which I seriously injured by back, which I suffer from to this very day), and piece together the measly amount of actual footage shot with Rothrock during a two or three day period. Then I incorporated new footage that was shot, and helped suggest new scenes to make the "story" work...It was a complete mess, but I did the best I could...(at the same time I was cutting this at director's sound in Burbank, I ran into Charlie Napier who was there looping for "rocketman", and asked him to appear in Don Jackson's "Return to Frogtown"...another story all together...) Should I write an autobiography of my life in the low budget film world??? Would anybody read it??? I guess not...
Dear Jim Cameron-how could you approve of this transfer?
I just spot checked your new 3-disc release of TITANIC.
Did you know that even though the packaging clearly states " Widescreen Version Enhanced for 16x9 TVs", it clearly is NOT! I own a $3,000 Loewe Planus digital display unit (not a "television"), and that upon playing the film I discovered that I was looking at a clearly FLAT transfer.
I am understandably horrified and insulted that someone of your intelligence, reputation and talent would allow this travesty to be perpetrated upon the public.
I plan tomorrow (Monday November 21. 2005) to question my personal contacts at Ascent Media in Burbank to see how this could have occurred. If you or any of your seconds (Van Ling? etc?) could weigh in on this problem, I would greatly appreciate the input.
