@ jerryshadoe - I didn't pretend to be funny...
I'm not judging your work, I know the effort of looking for all possible editions searching for all possible Extras, for example.
As I said, those links are comparing the 2 different Director's versions with a German DVD thats claims to be the Theatrical Cut, just because it was the first DVD released!
The Warner R2 DVD was released in Spain in 2001, while the VHS I think it's from 1993, and the FOX LD are from 1993 and 1998 (THX).
Also, in Spain, there are 3 different dubbings:
-The first one is from 1992 and is on that VHS, so I have no reason to think that's not the REAL Theatrical cut (also when it matches the French LD).
-The second is from 2001 made for that R2 DVD because the first one didn't match the different cut on the DVD.
-The third is from 2005 made for TV just to recover the original voice actors (same cut as DVD).
The beginning credits in the Spanish VHS should not be different from the real theatrical cut, because they are in english!, not like the French LD, which are obviously in french... (I didn't think I have to explain that)
Between my VHS and LD are also 1 or 2 different frames, but always happens dropped frames.
Where it is written that the HDTV you used is the Theatrical Cut? Because it matches the Brazilian DVD? It must be like the R2 DVD as you say, but as I said, it doesn't match the older PAL VHS/LD (I don't know yet about the US VHS/LD)
About the LaserDiscs, here, for example http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1058773 a user says about the Laser Disc "I heard it got the release closest to theatrical for the Last of the Mohicans"
Here http://www.amazon.com/Theatrical-Release-Last-Mohicans/forum/Fx270U0FHA7BQ02/TxY46OK9J0DRHC/3/ref=cm_cd_pg_pg3?_encoding=UTF8&asin=6302822696, after a lot of discussion, another user says "You can still buy The Laser disc version which IS the theatrical release and does have all the extra surround sound and wonderful optics"
http://www.examiner.com/review/the-last-of-the-mohicans-director-s-definitive-cut-on-blu-ray "the original theatrical version of the film has not been available since the film was on VHS" and "the theatrical cut was never released on DVD".

Well, running time is about 4 min less in PAL so I don't know the VHS time, but I'll calculate it.
I have the Director's Definitive Cut BD, not the other Director's cut, but I don't need them if you say that HDTV is like the R2 DVD.
So, when I find my european DVD R2 (that might be like your version) you will see that supposed DVD/HDTV Theatrical Version is also different form LD/VHS, and with MrBrown's help, also the US LD.
I hope you find that 35mm print!
