Why were there so many versions of this fantastic movie? There was the initial theatrical release, then the special edition a few years later, then the long TV version that included just about everything, then the VHS version, then the laserdisc version- which had scenes in that still aren't on the DVD, and finally two DVD versions. I might be forgetting a version or two but the main point of my question is why were all the deleted scenes still not included on the collector's edition DVD? I think it's a superb 2 disc set, don't get me wrong. There's cut scenes on it that I'd never seen before and doubt I would have ever seen had it not been for the 2nd disc, but there's still some things missing from it. Specifically there's a short moment when Roy experiences the UFO's on the hill with the country folk and the older guy with the mustache says something about how they(the UFO's) can fly rings around Saturn but they can't beat us on the highway, or something like that. Then there's the scene shortly after that when Roy's job calls him at home to fire him. His wife(Terri Garr) answers the phone and tells him that they fired him. Roy then plops back on his bed and notices the pillow: it's shaped like a mound, Devil's Tower in Wyoming but he doesn't know that yet. He looks at his pillow long and hard and finally rises up and says, "That's not right". That's just 2 examples I can recall off the top of my head of cut scenes still not on the collector's edition DVD. I almost feel that they should code every showing or copy of Close Encounters before the movie comes on just so we know exactly which version we're looking at.
