I didn't see the complete film until 1981. It was one of the first videos I rented, a poor quality release on the Media (I think) label, I'm not sure if it was even an official release. I rented it along with the old Magnetic Video release of "Let It Be" which I hadn't seen since the original 1970 theatrical release. I found much of MMT boring and nearly unwatchable at the time, but now I love it and know it by heart. I remember it being shown several times on "Night Flight" on the USA Network during the summer of 1985, where it was edited a bit. I recall the race scene was missing, along with Victor Spinetti's scene with the cow. I think "Flying" was cut as well.
