Heidi (1965) - English audio restoration

5 Replies, 3869 Views

This one might not gain much interest, but I watched this movie as a kid and have been looking for the English version for a while. There have been several productions of Heidi over the years, but this particular production, directed by Werner Jacobs, has always been a favorite.

IMDB Link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059259/?ref_=tt_urv

This was West German production, it has been released on DVD, but only with German audio and no English subtitles. However, there is an English dub out there. It was picked up by Warner Bros - Seven Arts and released in the US dubbed in English in 1967. I think it had a limited run in theaters, and later aired on TV in the 80s.

I found a TV broadcast VHS recording from the late 80s (88 or 89) with the English audio, however it had significant hissing and buzz. It is also missing a couple minutes in the middle of the film where someone recorded over part of the movie.

I have also acquired one of the German DVDs. It seems there is a 2003 DVD and a 2007 DVD. One has a run time of 91 minutes, while the other has a runtime of 87 minutes, which has a couple short scenes cut. I have the 87 minute DVD from 2007 but have not verified the VHS runtime without commercials.

My goal for the project is to clean-up and sync the English dub with a rip of the German DVD, which offers much better picture quality than the VHS. It would also be nice to create English subtitles.

If anyone happens to have the 91 minute DVD, that would be a help. If by some chance someone has access to a better copy of the English audio that would also be a huge help.

Hopefully someone else remembers this movie!
There are some versions on YouTube:

German: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0QuN79My0c | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Rw24pPy52E | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNpXQq6o4yo | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sg8wZwRQFdM | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKoXOosfDAI

Short clip of Spanish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tOL-zaoUSQ
Short clip of Portuguese? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STnMO3t2hBA

The Italian version has a different intro song, as does the English version. I'll probably include the full Italian audio in this project as it is available on YouTube.
Here is my upload of the English VHS Rip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV4YZ7uPb3s

Ok, it seems I made a mistake, sorry! Blush

It have the 1968 TV movie not the 1965 film.
No problem, thanks for checking!
