"The Amazing Howard Hughes" (1978) Tommy Lee Jones FULL UNCUT MINISERIES!
Don't be fooled by the DVDs currently on the market of this TV miniseries and bravura tour-de-force performance by Tommy Lee Jones as the famous...and infamous...multi-millionaire from teenager to his death that's been edited down to 93 minutes on one version and 123 minutes on another. This is the FULL AND COMPLETE 185-minute miniseries on a 2-DVD set that also stars the seemingly ever-present TV-movie presence Ed Flanders, this time as Hughes' account and adviser, and an amazing performance by Tovah Feldshuh as Hughes' one-time love interest Katherine Hepburn. This is a truly remarkable masterpiece of film-making, and to miss Tommy Lee's incredible performance as Hughes would be a big mistake. The DVD as originally released essentially butchered the miniseries to get it down to a palatable length for American viewers, whom they felt wouldn't have the patience to sit through the full show as originally presented in multiple parts. This starts with Hughes as a teenager attending his father's funeral and , already the businessman, has all sorts of ideas for how to improve and expand Hughes Tool Company, even though he's too young to even enter into a legal and binding contract in spite of the fact he's the only heir. From there, most people are already reasonably familiar with Hughes' various business and personal pursuits, but they are wonderfully enacted by Jones and backed by a stellar acting ensemble. It's based on Noah Dietrich's memoir "Howard: The Amazing Mr. Hughes", whom Ed Flanders delightfully portrays from young manhood to knowledgeable elder adviser. In between we watch Hughes in his many and varied pursuits, some highly successful and others sorely misguided. The film is actually one big retrospective that starts out with Hughes near death, long hair and nails and all, as he's wheeled from his heavily guarded hotel room in Las Vegas to a hotel for his final trip out of this world. If you haven't seen this miniseries in its entirety, now is your opportunity. I did my own transfer to DVD from my own original VHS tape recordings of the entire series, and not a minute is lost. Don't settle for the 90-minute Anchor Bay or the new StudioCanal 123-minute commercial releases when you can see the entire event right here!

PLEASE NOTE: There is erroneous information on some websites, notably IMDB, which states that the full-uncut version for this miniseries is 215 minutes. This information is, as i said, ERRONEOUS and INCORRECT. The miniseries aired over 2 nights, 2 hours each night INCLUDING COMMERCIALS, which if deleted would leave approximately 90 MINUTES PER NIGHT actual movie time. Multiply this by 2 and you get approximately 180 minutes, give or take. THERE IS NO VERSION, AND NEVER WAS, THAT IS 215 MINUTES! THI VERSION i'M OFFERING HERE IS THE LONGEST THERE IS. PERIOD.

The region-free (playable worldwide) 2-DVD set comes to you in a slim double-DVD case with full artwork shown here.

PLEASE NOTE: Because I burn these DVDs on an as-ordered basis, you may experience a shipping delay of a day or possibly two, but I try to avoid this if time permits!

International (outside U.S.)orders are always welcome, and I used to send these Priority Mail for an additional fee, however as postal rates at my end have skyrocketed of late making that option unaffordable I can only offer First Class "small packet" service, which frankly has its risks, the biggest of which is the lack of tracking available, so PLEASE BE SURE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS IS COMPLETE AND ACCURATE PRIOR TO ORDERING in order to minimize the chance of non-delivery as these items are not returned to me if they cannot be delivered for any reason.

I accept personal or cashiers checks and money orders from U.S. buyers and PayPal from everyone in the whole wide world.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to message me with any questions.
