Geffen's an odd duck; you're giving him a bit too much credit there.

He definitely did want the thing released in color rather than black and white. The fact that it no longer existed in color proved a problem. Maybe the large delay was just needing someone to actually bankroll the reconstructed edit .... and in the end they only bothered to reconstruct the ending obviously, to match the recalled DVD rather than any later edit.

Perhaps...

Still, was an interesting thought though.

I'm the guy who posted the clips, and I can assure you that David Geffen had no knowledge of it.

The person who had the workprint was simply disappointed (as we all were) with the Blu-ray, and gave me permission to upload these sections.

This workprint has been around for years - I first saw it in the early 90s, I believe.

Interesting. Long time ago then.

Wonderful that you posted it, certainly.

This sort of thing needs to be seen, to force the rights holders to do the right thing!

What I don't get is how I - and others - could have seen this years ago, but Oz/Geffen didn't use it for their reconstruction. It's clearly the final workprint.

Well, they were only focused on the ending, and the ending had been released as the longer, black and white cut already, which people would be expecting, and which they based everything on. It seems odd that this cut was overlooked for the first DVD release, but that's continued to be the case.

The ending is cut down too much in the color workprint anyway, missing out on portions of the song "Don't Feed the Plants." Quite possibly this long cut is still the preferred cut, considering that they no longer have to appeal to a test audience anyway and might as well use all the footage they've got.

I'd have preferred them to cut down the attack on the city, but not cut any actual song lyrics.

Yeah, and I'm real happy with how they did the "Audrey II Crashing Through The Screen" part at the end. That was sorely missing from the workprint.

Interesting classic toys. I also appreciated the Slimer candy head.
