Alternate Versions

A restored/reconstructed version had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival in 2011 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Nicholas Ray's birth. According to Susan Ray: "The restoration is based on the picture of the version of We Can't Go Home Again first shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973, the most complete version of the film screened publicly. We have integrated the 1973 picture with a narration created by Ray and recorded in his own voice as he continued to work on the film after the Cannes '73 screening until his death in 1979."

We Can't Go Home Again - Production and Personal Photos
31 October 2008 | by markg-36See all my reviews

I studied film at SUNY Binghamton and worked with director Nicholas Ray on "We Can't Go Home Again" in 1971-72 as both cinematographer and editor, as well as crew. See my IMDb record at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2117029/.

I shot lots of B&W stills on and off set and you can find selections on Flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mg-irc/sets/72057594135692080/. Two of my photos of Nick were featured in the book "Live Fast, Die Young: The Wild Ride of Making Rebel Without a Cause" by Lawrence Frascella and Al Weisel published 10/05. Those two photos and a few others can be seen on the Amazon site at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743260821/. Enjoy!
