I concede maybe I think too much about movies, but I was endeavouring to think about how many movies I've run across •or• know of that have at least 2 versions available. Movies released to theaters or video prior to 2000 where another version or two (or more) have since surfaced. There's quite a lot of them; I'll list the movies I know of but I'm sure I'll miss a bunch of titles, too, so anyone with knowledge of films with more than 2 versions extant please add them. Always good to learn something. (P.S. I did want to mention it's only movies where the extra footage has been incorporated back in to the film as opposed to being "bonus footage" on a disc. For instance, I've got a disc of "The Howling" with several minutes worth of extra footage not used in the theatrical release, but it's not incorporated back in to the film so I don't count "The Howling" as having any more than 1 version. Same with JAWS. I've got a 2-Tape set of JAWS I bought years ago with loads of bonus features on 'Tape 2', however, the film itself is the same without any additions. I'm not aware of any version extant of JAWS where any previously excised footage was added back in to the film -- but if there is please make a post and let me know. I'd like to buy a version of JAWS with footage put back if there is such a thing. [Same with THE HOWLING]). POSSESSION OF VIRGINIA, The (1972-French/Canadian). Filmed in Montreal. (Aka: "Le diable parmi nous"). SHIVERS (1975-Canadian) Ever seen the Canadian Tv print of "Shivers"? BROOD, The (1979-Canadian) LITTLE GIRL WHO LIVES DOWN THE LANE, The (1976-Canadian) SQUIRM (1976-Slimy Horror) The DVD version adds back the small amount of footage cut to earn "Squirm" a [PG]-rating so the disc is 'Unrated', I believe. The Vestron Video tape was [PG], tho. DEATH WEEKEND (1976-Canadian) (Aka: "House by the Lake"). RITUALS (1976-Canadian) HUMONGOUS (1981-Canadian) The opening rape scene is shortened in the U.S. version; the Canadian ASTRAL VIDEO version is complete. STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, A (1951-Drama) CARRIE (1952) STRANGE ONE, The (1957) GOD'S LITTLE ACRE (1958) PUBLIC ENEMY, The (1932) ALAMO, The (1960-Historical Western of sorts . . . ). IT'S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD (1963-Comedy) CHAIRMAN, The (1969) EYE OF THE CAT (1969-Suspense) The Blu-Ray has the theatrical & 'TV Version's of the film. STRAWBERRY STATEMENT, The (1970) SCREAMS OF A WINTER NIGHT (1979-Horror) Filmed in Louisiana FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH (1982) I believe one digital release includes the TV version. EYES OF FIRE (1983) When America was young and the secret of the early Spirits were living in the trees! STAR TREK: The Motion Picture (1979) There's 3 versions I know of. STAR TREK 2: The Wrath of Khan (1982) There's 2 versions I'm aware of. RAINTREE COUNTY (1957) Roadshow Version versus wide-release 'regular' theatrical version. REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT (1962) The Columbia VHS is different from the DVD. SAND PEBBLES, The (1966) Roadshow Version versus 'regular' theatrical version. SECONDS (1966) The overseas version was released on VHS by Paramount; has nudity. MAN WHO HAD POWER OVER WOMEN, The (1970-UK) Magnetic Video version was the Tv print; the later Embassy VHS release was the proper theatrical version (with nudity a few cuss words). DEVILS, The (1971-UK) There's at least 2 versions of "The Devils" -- maybe three. SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA, The (1973-UK) SEIZURE (1974-Canadian) (aka: "Queen of Evil", which runs 4 minutes longer). SEX SYMBOL, The (1974) U.S. Tvm/Overseas Theatrical Release has a bunch of dirty stuff! NIGHTMARE IN BADHAM COUNTY (1976) U.S. Tvm/Overseas Theatrical version loaded with sleaze. TEACHER, The (1974) The 'EP' video release from 'Sterling Entertainment' omits a phone call. WELCOME TO ARROW BEACH (1974) 99 minutes. Laurence Harvey's last film; he died Nov. 25, 1973. Beware of the shortened version running 85m! Re-titled "Tender Flesh". OLD CURIOSITY SHOP, The (1975-UK/Musical) Orig. British version: 114m. U.S. version: 91m. POOR PRETTY EDDIE (1975) (Aka: "Heartbreak Hotel"/"Redneck County Rape"). Pick a version! EAST END HUSTLE (1976-Canadian) SHOOTIST, The (1976-Western) The later W/S Paramount VHS release is missing about 5 seconds. MAYDAY AT 40,000 FEET (1976-Tvm) Overseas version has a wee bit of toplessness. GRIFFIN AND PHOENIX: A Love Story (1976-Tvm) Overseas version has a topless scene. SOMEONE'S WATCHING ME! (1978-Tvm) CINDERELLA (1977-Softcore Adult Comedy) DEEP, The (1977) HARD KNOCKS/ MID-NIGHT RIDER (1979) Two different versions. SCREAMS OF A WINTER NIGHT (1979) NOTE the Blu-Ray disc includes a long-lost segment involving a tree witch that changes the run time from 90 minutes to 125 minutes. (I need to buy that disc). MARK OF THE WITCH (1970) The original 'GP' version was issued on VHS; the movie was later released on DVD with a bit of excised [R]-rated footage restored. I bought both versions. SWARM, The (1978) Theatrical version released in 1978 runs 116 minutes; the 1992 'Expanded Version' runs 155 minutes and seems shorter because the theatrical release had such cho/ppy continuity. Not a good movie, anyway, but the theatrical version is worse than the longer 'cut' Irwin Allen had intended to release back in '78. WHEN TIME RAN OUT . . . (1980) The U.S. WARNER Home Video VHS release runs 141 minutes; the DVD release only runs 109 minutes. The DVD from Warner was the shortened overseas theatrical cut while the VHS release from Warner in the U.S. was an expanded version with television-only scenes included . . . so you get a large difference in the run time! SHINING, The (1980) → The overseas theatrical version was cut down by 25 minutes compared to the U.S. theatrical version. 144 minutes versus 119 minutes. ALLIGATOR (1980) FRIDAY THE 13th (1980) MY BLOODY VALENTINE (1981-Canadian) ESCAPE TO ATHENA (1979) APOCALYPSE NOW (1979) NEW YORK, NEW YORK (1977-Musical) 3 versions? Or 4? TEXASVILLE (1990) The LaserDisc version contains a longer cut of the movie. SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT (1986) Spike Lee's 1st movie; LD version is longer. DOGS OF WAR, The (1980) FUNHOUSE, The (1981) The "Tv version" of "The Funhouse", I think, was issued on DVD as a bonus feature. ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK (1981-Action) ONE FROM THE HEART (1982-Stylized Romantic Fantasy) OUTSIDERS, The (1983•Coming-of-age Drama) BLOOD SIMPLE (1984) 2 versions of "Blood Simple" are extant. THIEF OF HEARTS (1984-Sexual Thriller) DUNE (1984) RE-ANIMATOR (1985-Horror/Dark Comedy) BIG (1988-Comedy) CELLAR, The (1989-Horror) SEA OF LOVE (1989) SONNY BOY (1990) The UK version of this film is positively deranged; the U.S. version was watered-down for content. DANCES WITH WOLVES (1990) BASIC INSTINCT (1992) The old 'Carolco' Red Box VHS release was uncut. WYATT EARP (1994) CRIMSON TIDE (1995) 115m. The 2008 DVD release was expanded to 123 minutes. JADE (1995) Paramount released 2 versions of "Jade" on VHS. In Green boxes, of course. that thing you do! (1996) The 'Director's Cut' is much longer. FORTRESS (1992) Overseas theatrical version had a bit more violence than the U.S. 'cut'. STAR WARS (1977) I lost track of how many versions of "Star Wars" exist. 6 or 7? Maybe 8? BLADE RUNNER (1982) I lost track of how many versions exist of 'Blade Runner', too. 7 versions? ---------------------------- There are also a number of films with different "TV versions", but I'm not sure if these particular TV versions were ever released on any homevideo medium? (What happened with ALLIGATOR (1980) is very unusual. The 1983 Catalina Home Video VHS release was the Television version instead of the theatrical print and runs about 8 minutes longer. 92 minutes versus 100 minutes. The 1986 Lightning Video release was the theatrical version of "Alligator". → I believe the Blu-Ray disc of "Alligator", which was recently released, contains *both* versions of the film). Anyway, here are some TV versions of some movies I've seen that aren't simply 'edited for content' -- there's alternate footage added: MURDER BY DEATH, BLAZING SADDLES, QUICK CHANGE, AIRPLANE II, FAR & AWAY, BORN IN EAST L.A., CAR WASH (the TV version of "Car Wash" is a lot different!), DIARY OF A MAD HOUSEWIFE, SO FINE and who knows how many more Tv versions there are of various films that I don't know of. Maybe SUMMER RENTAL (1985) had a TV version with more footage; it's not a long movie so it's possible there was footage added for a 2-hour television time slot). → I'm sure I've missed a bunch of movies that have more than 1 version, but I figured listing these titles was a start. I only have one version of STAR WARS: The 1982-issue '20th Century Fox Video' VHS tape. I believe that is the most "un-messed-with" version of STAR WARS there is. I think . . . All posts and fresh titles welcome.
