      Mmm, I didn’t know there were different versions, this is the only one I’ve been able to find out there, it’s sourced from a commercial DVD I believe so it’s probably cut.

    Thanks. Yes, always something to watch out for, what with the 5 or so different versions of “Blade Runner” and “Apocalypse Now” kicking around. (Those are probably among the extreme examples.) IMDB is generally pretty good at tracking such things. In looking for most titles, we hope to find the least cut or messed with version. Not always possible of course, given factors like available subtitles and so forth.

    All your efforts with this site are greatly appreciated !
