Thank you for this tip! Just snagged myself a copy after redeeming the points.

I figured I would update the thread with the following information.

Umbrella Entertainment Double Feature:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=273605


And of course you all have heard of Night of the Living Dead(1968) lost footage now found. Anyone know if there is a blu-ray release in the works for this?

Speculation abounds, but nothing is confirmed at this point.

Huh. Didn't realized Forgotten Films fixed their release with a second printing. That's good to hear.

All is forgiven Forgotten.

Exclamation Forgotten Films "Second Pressing"

I had ordered the Forgotten Films release a few years back, before any purported "second pressing."

When I read here that there had been a second pressing with the missing footage restored, I immediately placed another order for said disc, directly from Forgotten Films via their storefront on Amazon.

Disc arrived today and it is exactly the same as my first disc, feature time 1:35:19.

So I wrote to Forgotten Films to inquire about the second pressing mentioned here, with a link to the forums, and I was told (direct quote):

"Hi! Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, no, there has never been a second pressing from Forgotten Films."

So the claims of a second pressing appear to be in error.

A few years ago I emailed the guy "making" these when I got the wrong release off Amazon. He apologized, said he used the wrong files to make disc. Then sent the corrected copy which wasn't missing any footage, but was burned and was labeled with just the title, not pressed. Don't know what he used as a source for the second disc, but I I'm thinking it may have moved him from a grey market public domain release to bootleg status. So he probably stopped doing that. Just guessing. Threw mine out a while ago after I picked up the Happinet release.

He likely just burned the longer cut real quick to appease buyers in the beginning, then stopped bothering to do so at some point. I really don't think that can be called a bootleg since the movie is public domain. You could sell burned copies all day long if someone was dumb enough to buy them.

Glad I never encountered the Forgotten Films release and went straight for the Happinet disc.

HonestJohn, StingingVelvet...

Thanks for your input. Things start to become clearer.

I had mentioned the forum to Forgotten Films and that users had even implied that they had a copy of the second pressing. It did feel like I wasn't getting all of the information.

It's disappointing that I wasn't offered even just a burned copy of the complete film, especially as a repeat customer, but I guess there's nothing I can do. (I actually don't mind burned media, especially in a special case like this.) I would have liked to have had it, even just for comparison's sake.

I appreciate you guys helping clear this up for me as I found it hard to believe everybody here was wrong, yet the direct quote from Forgotten Films implied they were.

At least this "lesson" wasn't too expensive!

I recommend the Happinet blu-ray from Japan. It's in region A. It's razor-sharp, the sharpest and the cleanest the film has ever looked. It's complete and uncut. It's authorized by George A. Romero. There is a minor framing issue in a few shots that makes this release imperfect, but it is still the best release the film has ever had, in terms of image quality and completeness. Buy the Happinet edition if you can find it and be happy.

I read somewhere that the Happinet transfer has also been issued in Australia but I haven't seen that so can't confirm.
