Never knew about this. Great find!
I suppose this can be preserved by re-insterting it into the 2002 Pan and Scan DVD, which also has “When Love is Gone”.
I would presume so, but I don’t know if there were any other little changes. I suppose I could easily do that at least as a stopgap.
I’m no expert, but it’s my understanding that these syndicated TV edits of films would usually add a lot of cut material to pad the running time to neatly fill a broadcast timeslot.
And On a VHS Release too?
Which song do you mean?
WLIG was also on many (all?) pre-DVD home video releases. Of course, there is now an HD version of WLIG from the digital releases’ extras which has even been fan-edited back into the film very nicely.
As for the extended Marley song, I believe its visuals are unique to the old TV version, though I’d love to be wrong about this.
