What’s the difference between the two?

I just got these, so I’m not 100% sure. The International version has extra scenes from the US theatrical. The US TV version has the same alternate title sequence, but maybe not all the extra scenes.

Ok, when you do get the chance, can you let me know please?

I saw Superman III on ITV (UK) during the 80s and from what I remember and the description on IMDB and the clips I’ve seen on YouTube, it was identical to the ABC TV version.

How is the video quality on The Shining?

Where were you in '77?

I personally think it’s excellent; very watchable. I remember seeing this on Tv for the first time; quite probably this very airing! This is probably my favorite TV Version in my collection. I love Kubrick’s films!!

I’ve read Kubrick personally supervised the edits made for the tv version. The one that airs on basic cable these days has different digital censoring in the Room 237 scene, and I’m nostalgic for the SK approved version.

Me too, I like the old edits and just the overall ‘feel’ of tv movies. I think all the edits from the ABC version are on YouTube if you wanna check em out. But I’m always up for a trade if you’d like a quality copy!

It is just an edited for television. Maybe no new footage, but cool to have.

I read somewhere the TV Cut included a (deleted from the theatrical version) scene where Buddy Kupfer receives some kind of award / trophy from Conal Cochran?

Author

yeah just checked it, that scene is there he gets it for selling the most masks.

It’s there in the theatrical cut, or is only there in the television cut?

I just watched the films a couple weeks ago, so I should remember this, lol.

Good luck Radar180, I’ve been trying to get the TV edit of Die Hard 2 for years but since I don’t have a MySpleen account either so I haven’t been able to.
