Alternate Versions (2)

  • This premiered at 135 minutes, then was immediately cut for subsequent roadshow engagements, and then the "popular" run. Over 30 minutes of footage was taken out, including all the talking scenes involving Noah. This version was 11-reels in length(about 102 minutes). Producer Robert Youngson supervised a 1957 re-release, eliminating all talking sequences and inserting a narration. This version is 75 minutes long.
  • A restored version, which airs from time to time on Turner Classic Movies, includes most of the talking sequences, which were all cut from the original for the film's re-release in 1957. It also gives credit to the Vitaphone Orchestra before the Warner Bors. logo card, citing the use of the system's "Western Electric Apparatus". This version is 99 minutes long.
