A fascinating watch.

I have watched the original THE BIG SLEEP many times over the years and it never loses it's magic.

But this is the first time I have ever watched the deleted material and while it does not change the plot or I would argue even improve the story, it does add more clarity. The newly inserted District Attorney scene in particular goes a long way untangling the complex mystery for the audience.

All the re-inserted scenes are fairly well inserted. The audio work is excellent; only the minor difference in video quality hints that a scene may not be from the original version. But this did not detract from my enjoyment.

A must watch for Noir Fans.
