    The VHS and LD versions of the President's Analyst use different music because of copyright mumbo jumbo and even worse, because of the change in some source music, a few scenes were actually edited too. They called it the "special home video version." Oddly enough, the original cut was cleared for broadcast but not for release on video. ....What a shame. One of my favorite films and I can only watch my old VHS taped off a pay TV airing of the original version.

    Any word if the June 8 release will restore it to the original? I sure hope they do it right this time.

    If it is coming from Paramount, I would hazard a guess that the original music will be used; I say this because their recent transfer of THE GREAT GATSBY, which had been tied up in similar ways, contains the theatrical version's original music, mostly by Irving Berlin.
