    After watching the edited version of SWING SHIFT, and reading about what Hawn and Warner Brothers did to the film, I was amazed to find the Directors Cut on your site. But it stopped dead at 52 minutes, and I could not get it to move further. Help! I am fascinated by the edit, and hope there is some way to continue watching the film.

    Now that Demme has died, there is little chance that his cut will ever see the light of day, so I’m sincerely hoping you can help me watch this to the end.

    Great site!

      Hey Jay.
      Sorry about that, I assume you were streaming it and it froze? Please try again I uploaded it to a different site that works much better, you should be able to watch it in full now.

      Let me know if the issue persist.
      Jon.

    I cannot believe how much better this version is than the studio cut. What a shame this is not the released cut. None of the changes made sense, and ironically, made Kay’s character much less likable and relatable. Thank you so much for posting this!

    I’ve waited a long time to see this version and am utterly amazed how much better it is. I was a young 21 year old student when I saw the release and didn’t much like the jingoism and Reagan appealing pulp that the movie seemed to represent. This version has all the lovely earmarks that made Demme such a great director. Thank you for posting this and making it available to movielovers.
