    I have a version of The Fugitive pilot with different music, different credits, etc. I don't remember what else as it's probably been 15-20 years since I got it but there were some slight variations. Too bad Paramount didn't do anything with it.

    Well, maybe they don't have it.

    Unfortunately it's not something I have the film on, just something I picked up on VHS in a trade so I don't even know where the master resides or I would offer it to them.

    I also have this in my collection. If memory serves it has different music cues, some scenes have different angles, perhaps some extended scenes and there are a few dialog changes from the episode that aired. Like Hank it's been awhile since I watched it, but I did watch the two versions back to back and the changes were not always subtle ones. There was also a rumor in the 80's that a color version of the unaired pilot exists, but this has never been confirmed.

    Hank, what are the chances of getting a copy of this? I collect unaired and rare pilot, and until recently, I never knew that this Fugitive pilot existed!! Thanks, Ray Glasser
