    I watched the restored version that was about 4 hours long. It was "restored" with a bunch of stills not actual footage. I found this to be pretty annoying and the film was almost nonsensical and boring because of it. I would seek out the 140m version as that is probably better. 4 years 10 months ago

    The shorter version is definitely better, a great film! The 240m version is really more of a curiosity piece of historical interest; the 140m version still works amazingly as a film today. 8 years 10 months ago
