    Can anybody say if the current R2 DVD of John Wayne's El Dorado is a full uncut version as IMDB says a runtime of 126 mins but the info on Play.com say 121 mins runtime. :confused:

    Hi Graham,

    You have to remember the 4% speedup when films are transferred to PAL video. They need to run the telecine machine at 25 fps instead of the normal 24 fps at the cinema to reduce flicker on the video. So I would say that runtime of 121 mins looks about right.
