I've had a VHS copy of THE WIND AND THE LION for years now. After much diligent search in various places, I finally was able to obtain the LD version from an ebay seller a month or so ago. There are two scenes in the LD that are new to me. When Raisuli is riding from the "burning boats beach", one of the severed heads is briefly displayed on a wooden frame. Also, when Raisuli shoots the first bad guy on the "blue robed bad guy beach", blood from the wound spashes onto the camera lens. Did they edit these scenes out for the VHS presentation to appease potentially squeamish viewers? I don't remember seeing these scenes on TV versions either. Was this a common practice in the early days of video?
