Bantam Books, October 1974. Mass Market PaperBack. Used - Very Good. Item #242581
Clean, sound. Overall very good+/fine. First mass market printing of Bergman's groundbreaking screenplay for the miniseries. It would now probably be called a limited series. It was first aired in Sweden as a six part television series, total running time = 282 minutes. It was later remade and remodeled into a 169 minute theatrical movie version. This was the version that appeared first In the U.S. in 1974. At the time I was 15. I probably appeared to be younger. Scenes From A Marriage probably received an R rating, and I would not have been allowed in unless. I was already a fan of Bergman movies such as Virgin Springs, The Seventh Seal, The Silence and others I had seen on PBS. Speaking of PBS, in 1977 the six part series was broadcast in the U.S. on PBS, and that was my introduction to the movie/series. I now own the The Criterion Collection 3-DVD set which includes both theatre and television versions. I still have not seen the movie version in a theatre.
