Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, The: 30th Anniversary EditionR4

    There is a R1 edition of The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, which was also released in November of 2008. This edition was released by Industrial Entertainment and is a single disc edition. The R1 edition has only two extras, Celluloid Gypsies, Making Jimmie Blacksmith and The Chant of Tom Lewis. I'm confident these are exactly the same extras as those on the Umbrella release. At the conclusion of both extras, a copyright logo is displayed which states, "Industrial Entertainment 2008", so the assumption would be a strong one.

    The aspect ratio on the R1 edition is reported to be 1.66:1, although I couldn't confirm this. This is way off the correct Cinemascope ratio of 2.35:1, which the Umbrella edition proudly boasts.

    There seems little doubt that the Umbrella, all region, two-disc collector's edition of The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith is the best currently available.
