    Poster @ CHFB saw it last week in NY and observed

    RESTORED: Jane Asher says: "I beg of you mercy! Mercy in the name of God!"
    The words "of God" and a guard tossing her to the ground had been previously removed from the scene.
    Price's remark that Asher was addressing him may have been seen as blasphemous,
    motivating the removal of the God reference.

    RESTORED: About a second of footage where Jane Asher is thrown into a tub.

    RESTORED: The first scene between the little people, in which Hop Toad promises Esmeralda
    (played by a child) she won't be hit again. The scene begins with Esmeralda crying.
    Yes, some audience members laughed at hearing the adult voice come out of the little girl.
    I do like the scene, however, as it inspires more empathy for Esmeralda character, and further solidifies Hop Toad's motivation for revenge.

    RESTORED: On the battlements, a brief exchange between Vincent Price and Jane Asher before the release of the kestrel has them talking about evil.
    Price says "often the appearance of evil is a lack of understanding." Having seen the unedited scene now,
    it's my opinion that the removal of these seconds had greatly marred the scene, making the motivation for the release of the bird incomprehensible in the censored version we'd been seeing since the 1960s.
    Glad it's in the movie now.

    RESTORED: Hazel Court saying "Hallelujah!" during her ceremony
    (this scene is also on the Vincent Price Collection Blu-Ray).

    STILL MISSING: Dialogue in which Alfredo suggests to Prince Prospero that the Jane Asher character should have been dressed as a nun.
    This is a moment of possible self-censorship, likely removed before any board of censors was asked to preview the film.

    So an improvement, if not quite perfection. Still, I'll take it.

    There's a new German boxed set coming out in March.

    I'd imagine they're all from the same MGM supplied masters as the existing Blu-rays.

    Late to the Party, but I HIGHLY recommend "House of the Long Shadows"! Writer (Desi Arnaz Jr.) makes a bet he can write a “Wuthering Heights” caliber novel. To get in the mood he stays in what he thinks is an empty old Welsh manor. He soon discovers the house is anything, but empty! A virtual who’s who of classic Horror Movies star in this fantastic much overlooked movie! Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, John Carradine and Peter Cushing!
    Price was one of our favorites as kids! My friend and I would make double-decker peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, a gallon of sweet ice tea and grab a can of Charles Chips, then sit down and watch the Saturday afternoon double feature on "Creature Feature" hosted by Dr. Paul Bearer! Some of my fondest memories. Also late Friday Night's "Shock Theater"!

    RED DEATH isn't in that box. "Im Todesgriff der roten Maske" is the German title for THE OBLONG BOX. But yes, I'm pretty sure this box will just repackage existing BDs.
