Cotton Club was intended to be a well balanced story about the black and white performers, patrons and gangsters of the legendary Harlem club in the 1920s & 30s. Coppola talks about the pressure he faced to trim down the film so it focused more on Richard Gere's story and his recent effort to restore and re-edit it to bring the film back to what was originally intended. "Cotton Club Encore" is theaters this weekend.
