Looks like the Artist Film is the best version?

Yeah, that's what DVDBeaver says.

Thanks so much for your help guys. I rented I Robot, eXistenZ, and Invasion (which I hated, but it fits the assignment). I also really like the suggestion of Edward Scissorhands, Dr. K. I'm gonna watch parts of all of them until something strikes me. Anyone want to edit the paper for me?  ;D

Ford. Duh. Unless you've enjoyed Meyers in the past, I suppose...
I'm like Cold Stone: you either like me, love me, or gotta have me.

I'm waiting for It's Complicated to win best picture.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

The Iron Horse: US Version or International Version?

pixote

Looks like US according to DVDbeaver and Tag Gallagher:

"There are two wildly different versions of this film. According to Tag Gallagher (Ford's biographer) the BFI version is the inferior one. He did a review of it in Film International, watching both versions on two different monitors at the same time.  Aside from changing some names (and the dedication), the BFI edition (which was put out by Fox) uses a second take for virtually every shot, and in each instance the second take is very nice but also a bit inferior, and almost always farther away (sometimes extreme long shot in BFI, full shot in US).  In addition there is some exciting montage during an Indian attack which is omitted in the BFI version. Tag wasn't keen on either Lanchberry's score or MoMA's William Perry but recalled that David Shepard did a new score (using much of the original score) for a Japanese release of the US version."
