The laserdisc and DVD share literally the exact same master. I don’t know where these censorship allegations came from.

Friedkin is saying it’s a master made for TV and home video exhibition i.e. 4:3 with video generated location titles during the vignettes. There is no censorship and the audio is the theatrical mix.

Here is audiovisual proof.

There is no need for a wild goose chase for the LD version.

Seriously I didn’t realize the DVD wasn’t censored, I just heard somewhere on blu-ray forums it was so was skeptical

Thanks for proving it though
