The Scarface cast reunion was very entertaining. It would have been nice to see De Palma live along with the cast, but I'm pleased that BDP is back at work and the blu-ray release has created an opportunity for the fans to see these actors together again. Thanks for posting this livestream info Geoff - I would have missed this if I hadn't checked in with A La Mod.
In the mid-1980's, I recall working on a commerical shoot with a camera assistant from Baltimore who was on the Scarface production crew, and she explained to me that the original first cut, or one of the first cuts had a running time that was 4-5 hours. Given that there will not be a sequel because all of the characters were killed, perhaps going forward we might see a blu ray release of the longer original cut.
"In this country, first you get the money, then you get the power,THEN you get the woman. Then you wait another 40 years and you get Scarface in a limited edition, extended directors cut on blu-ray!"
