Incorrect movie length for 'Seven Samurai'. IMDB reports it at 141 minutes where it is actually 207 mins. Being a top 20, and being so long I would imagine you'd want it to be accurate. Please make this update, as that hour makes a big difference.

It says 207 minutes for me:

The tech specs don't even have an 141 minute runtime listed:

It is right under the title it says 141 minutes - Unrated.

Thanks for the screenshot - it is important as it isn't what I'm seeing:



Something is going wrong, somewhere (might be regional settings? You are certainly seeing the US information), hopefully staff can work it out from what you've supplied.

Not a problem, glad I can help. That's what I see when I click through the Top250 and just normal search functionality.

The 141 minute runtime is explained in the alternate versions page as an abridged version (though the information about original US release seems conflicting):
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047478/a...

The 141 minutes are also displayed in the old reference-view pages:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047478/r...



That it is listed as a US runtime is probably why it is displayed prominently for a US user. However, it is very strange that it is not displayed at all in the standard pages for people in other countries, like Emperor or me.
