 Once Upon a Time in America has now been “reconstituted.” Next week in Cannes, audiences will have the chance to a savour a new 245-minute cut of Leone’s gangster masterpiece. Twenty-five minutes of extra footage will be included.

The 2-disk DVD version available on Amazon, at Once Upon A Time In America Special Edition [DVD] [1984] is longer than the theatrical version, at 229 minutes, but not so long as this new 245-minute version.
