I was trying to figure out when the closing credits were changed to white. I have a copy of the second ABC tv broadcast from 1985, (white credits) but not the 1983 network debut. (I doubt there is any differences there.) I don’t think the actual lettering ever changed.
Does the UK broadcast have the profanity dubbed over and Room 237 ghost covered in a creepy fog? That’s interesting that the credits were still blue! If you get the chance to do an A/B comparison with the DVD or Blu-Ray it could be enlightening.
The early Japanese LD I used to have had mild censorship of Room 237 ghost. There was once a clip on The Overlook Hotel site, but tumblr prudishly removed it.
