The movie has been re released on wide screen at select theaters. It showed here in Waxahachie but, I could not bring myself to sit through a three hour movie.
Widescreen? The only way to do that is to crop the top and bottom of the picture. That was done once before to the movie, for a release in the 70s as I recall. The result was...odd.

I'm not fond of 3-4 hour movies," but"one must take into consideration the era that this was produced as opposed to today. It has a mxture of many emotions presented in a spectacular setting with the Civil War all around. Granted some of the characters could have been cut and no one would have ever noticed. Yes History was not it's backbone , but it did bring interest to finding out about the Civil War. Remember also it did have a plot as opposed of some of today's trash that gets award after award thrown at them and your not sure what it was about when over. I believe some of today's garbage has as many people killed as did the Civil War and to what point.
