: That is TOO strange! That little clip was filmed TEN months AFTER filming had ceased in October 1991 - AUGUST, 1992 (late August, at that ... just several weeks before the film was actually released)! They went ALL the way back to Chimney Rock Park, covered the rails, etc. which CRP didn't want to take down AGAIN (as they had done the previous year), hauled in all that equipment, flew in Madeleine Stowe & Daniel Day Day-Lewis (this time, necessarily, WITH wig!), spent ALL that money ... just to shoot that short little segment because, as Michael Mann was quoted as saying by Todd Morse (owner of CRP), "... [he] said the re-shooting was necessary for the explanation of the romantic involvement of [Day-] Lewis and Stowe."
: ???????????????? Huh? And now it's GONE???????????????
: This is WEIRD!
It's beginning to sound as if Michael Mann had NOTHING to do with this "director's cut" isn't it? Other than allowing it to be done perhaps? sounds as if some editing trainee went through it with a meat cleaver and he/she had the sensitivity of a toilet seat, and the artistic talent of a moose.
Perhaps I put the mouse droppings under the wrong pillow?
