...on Ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/GETTYSBURG-LIMITED-COLLECTORS-EDITION-VHS-AND-BONUSES_W0QQitemZ260550830101QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVHS?hash=item3caa0a2815

It's sold by the Gettysburg Gift Center. I'd always heard that there might be copies in town, but when I went to their main webpage, this film was not to be found...so I gave up for awhile.

It says they have 6 copies for $50, plus only $3 in shipping.
(Well, now they have 5 copies.)
It's VHS. Although I would obviously prefer DVD, I will settle for VHS for now and hope the condition of the tapes hold up. $50 is a lot of money, but given that I would have considered spending close to that for a USED copy, I think this is a very nice price also considering it's a very rare find.

OBTW, it includes the soundtrack among other things. I already have two soundtracks, but it will make a nice gift for someone else.



Also, a little "older" info on the G&G director's cut:
(Still no word on when or if we might see it one day.) I have no idea what the problem is. Even some of those who said they didn't care for the theater version have been clammering for the director's cut.
It had been discussed in making it a 2-part film to be shown in 2003 and 2004. I think they should have gone that route and then we'd have had a better finished product. (If the rumors are true.) Plus we'd surely have the director's cut in our hands now.

The website has it at around 4 hours, but I read somewhere else that it was screened at 5 hours and 43 minutes.

I emailed Jeff Shaara about the extended version of Gods and Generals

The response:

Sorry to be so long responding.
Originally there was a plan to release the "long version" of Gods and
Generals, but Warner Brothers (who owns all the rights to the film) pulled the
plug on that idea. They were very happy with the DVD sales for the regular
version, but they absolutely don't care whether or not there is an audience out
there for the long cut. I have no clout with those people at all. So, for now,
the long version is not on the horizon.
Thank you for asking!
Jeff Shaara



Way to go Warner Bros. It's bad enough that your DVD's come in cheap cardstock "clamshells" and now this...

It's too bad that Turner/Maxwell had to give up all the movie rights. I'm sure they just needed someone to distribute and market their film.
