7 reels
104 minutes/9,364 feet
There were no attachments on the print I had.

and this is the good bit...

in Spanish WITHOUT subtitles.

When this print arrived I previewed it and instantly concluded there was something seriously wrong, because the film consists of nearly two hours of people singing in Spanish, with no translation. I spoke to the British distributor, Metrodome, who told me it was Carlos Saura's personal wish that no 'graffiti' should be allowed to deface his film. After several customer complaints we put up notices in the lobby warning customers that the film was in a foreign language and unsubtitled, and lost a lot of business as a result.

Maybe the US distributor of this film has subtitled it anyway, but if not, be prepared for irate customers.
