A few years ago I remember hearing Bogdanovich's take on this movie and the problems with Howard Hughes etc that led to the ending being reedited. From that moment on the last few minutes of the film always bothered me. You just couldn't unsee it, and it definitely undermined what was clearly otherwise a masterpiece of the genre.

So it's great to report that this edit fixes the movie and finally gives us what I think it's fair to say is the movie that Howard Hawks would have chosen to release in 1948 had it been legally possible.

Essential for all fans of Red River and of Hawks. Thank you ParanoidAndroid.
