I'll check into the version you describe. I know Jonathan a little and he has given me some rare tapes in the past (Kubrick's Fear & Desire, Welles' Don Quixote). I have an issue of Video Watchdog around somewhere that compares the different versions. I'll see if I can dig that up. I've only seen the butchered US Mr. Arkadin and I'll admit I was disappointed.

Nag me if you don't hear back from me right away.
