No version anywhere AFAIK, although it's a frequently requested title.

It was made by MGM so keep your eyes on the upcoming Warners schedules. I believe this was shortened for general release after the premiere so it would be interesting to see if they could come up with a restoration. It's a film I like a great deal - Peter O'Toole is quite magnificent - but the songs are generally pretty awful.

I would agree mike,although i do like the music,i saw it in the west end yrs ago so have always had a love for it and own the soundtrack on vinyl with john mills singing.
I believe peter otoole gives robert donat a run for his money.

In her review, Pauline Kael said it was one of the best screen performances of the 1960s, notable particularly for its courageous restraint. I'd agree with her - in fact I think I prefer O'Toole to Robert Donat, although both actors are superb.
