John Sullivan: Listen Gordo, my name is Santa Claus and I’m going to give you the biggest Christmas present that you’ve ever had.
Gordo Hersch (8 Years old): I better give you my address then.
John Sullivan: No, no, no. Don’t worry about it kid. Now, this is important. Something you’ve got to remember for a long time. Yahoo.
Gordo Hersch (8 Years old): What’s that?
John Sullivan: It’s a magic word. It’s like abracadabra, only better.
This is so exciting! Terrence Malick is my favorite director and The Thin Red Line is one of my Top Ten Favorite movies of all time. The news leaked a few weeks ago, but I was waiting for the cover artwork to get released before writing about it. I actually thought Fox or someone would release a ten-year anniversary edition in 2008 but that never happened. I may already own the crap Fox War Classics version of this film on DVD, but I also own two versions of Malick’s The New World. so I have no qualms about buying this again.
