In the DVD Definitive Director’s Cut the pool scene is cropped and not as originally shown theatrically. The same was true in the widescreen laserdisc I’m sure (a lady bought some of my discs years ago and that was one of them). I’m not clear what other changes were made since there are evidently three cuts, but only the first and third are available on the latest release. This one particular reframing is not addressed in the Movie-Censorship descriptions. There may be others unaddressed, no way of knowing.I don’t think this is correct. I have RCA’s original laserdisc with the 4:3 image, and the subsequent releases appear to be a normal 1.85:1 image from an open-matte source.
