Description du produit
Indianápolis, a finales del siglo XIX. Tras romper con Eugene Morgan, un idealista industrial, la joven aristocrática Isabel Amberson se casa con Wilbur Minafer, de cuya unión nace George. Años más tarde, Eugene, ahora viuda, regresa a la ciudad con su hija, la joven y atractiva Lucy, de quien se enamora el engreído George. Tras el fallecimiento de Wilbur, la llama del amor vuelve a prender entre Isabel y Eugene, que se ha convertido en un próspero hombre de negocios con un revolucionario prototipo de automóvil. Al enterarse del idilio entre su madre y Eugene, George intenta frustrarlo, al tiempo que comprueba cómo su antaño intocable casta, los Amberson, ya sólo es un nido de decadencia...

Directed by Orson Welles
Believe this is a better film than 'Citizen Kane' in some ways. With one of my favorite character actresses from radio and the cinema, Miss Agnes Moorehead, she's nails every role she appears in, Miss Moorehead is sorely missed in the media and in this household.
The young & handsome Eugene Morgan (Joseph Cotten) wants to marry Isabel Amberson (Dolores Costello), daughter of a rich upper-class family, but she instead marries Wilbur Minafer.Years later, Eugene comes back, now a mature widower and a successful automobile maker. After Wilbur dies, Eugene again asks Isabel to marry him, and she is receptive. But Isabel & Wilbur's only child, George (Tim Holt) resents the attentions paid to his mother, and he and aunt Fanny (Agnes Moorehead) set about sabotaging the romance.
A Tour de Force from Orson Welles - Academy Award nominations for Picture, Best Supporting Actress (Agnes Moorehead), Cinematography (B&W) & Art (B&W)
* Special footnote: -- RKO chopped 50 minutes of the film and added a happy ending while Orson Welles was out of the country. The footage was subsequently destroyed; the only record of the removed scenes is the cutting continuity transcript ~ Interesting that Tim Holt and Anne Baxter walk past a movie theater advertising a film starring Jack Holt, Tim's father.

Unforgettable, inimitable, I said and I will repeat: do not deprive yourself of this great film because it was trunkated by stupid money-grabbing distributors. Maybe some day a miracle comparable to what happened with Lang's Metropolis will make Welles restored original version possible and Criterion will distribute it! That is a dream for every Welles admirer. Meanwhile enjoy what is left of the MAGNIFICIENT Ambersons!
The quality of the video is not much better then the original VHS...looks like just a transfer of the VHS to DVD.
I think it was pretty nervy of Warner Brothers to push this DVD as "remastered."
First we had to wait a long time for the movie to come out on DVD...and then, we had to wait to buy the movie by itself.
$16 bucks for such a poor transfer DVD is not that great a deal for me!
As is common knowledge, the film was taken out of Welles" control and heavily edited with the ending reworked to provide a more "upbeat" conclusion. At the previews of the rough cut of the film audiences laughed at some of the scenes intended to be dramatic. Several portions of the film, not just the ending, were cut by a total of 40 minutes. Robert Wise, editor of this film and "Citizen Kane" felt that the revised ending was an improvement to which Welles vehemently disagreed.
The excised footage was ultimately destroyed purportedly to "make room in the vaults" and a copy of the rough cut, supposedly sent to Welles while he was working in Brazil on another RKO project, is believed to have been lost.
There are no printed credits at the end of the film but they are instead recited by Welles. I noticed immediately that there was no credit for music score -- obviously the work of Bernard Herrmann -- and discovered that, because of the cuts that were made, he insisted on his name being deleted from the credits.
Even as it stands, "The Magnificent Ambersons" is widely considered to be one of the great American films and it is good to have it last on DVD
