If I have missed any films with Interstitials that need to be validated at original, free to share your thoughts.

Good Luck posters, historians @haineshisway and restorationists @Strohmaier and @Robert Harris, I'm counting on you folks :)

Weren't the Overture and Ent'racte of 1776 produced exclusively for the Pioneer laserdisc?

Correct. And the LaserDisc Interstitial sources were all tracked underscores from the film and come from what I remember, as follows:

Overture:
  1. Adams comes down the stairs. (Commitment [Underscore])
  2. Martha and Thomas Jefferson kiss (He Plays the Violin [Underscore])
  3. Dickinson's Entrance (Cool Considerate Men [Underscore])/Dr. Franklin's Entrance to Congress (The Egg [Underscore No. 2] Heard longer on the 1972 Theatrical Version and 1992 LD Version [IIRC] and 2002/2015 Director's Cut and 2015 Extended Cut have dialed out the 2nd part of the number).
  4. Going to New Brunswick (But, Mr. Adams [Underscore])
The first 22 seconds of the Main Titles [The Lees of Old Virginia] which are present on the 1992 LD (after Overture is finished) are omitted from the 2002/2015 Director's Cuts and 2015 Extended Version [and instead the music fades in to the end of the Columbia Logo].


Intermission:

Compliments (Outro) [Instrumental]

Entr'acte:
  1. Piddle, Twiddle and Resolve (an Instrumental underscore not used [I think] in the film).
  2. Yours, Yours Yours (Underscore) [Used in the 1972 Theatrical Version and 1992 LD Version but not used in the 2002/2015 Director's Cuts and 2015 Extended Version)]
  3. Compliments (Instrumental)

@Ronald Epstein You may fact check, If I managed to beat the odds…

My Personal Answer: No actual Music was recorded for the Overture, Intermission and Entr'acte have been recorded.

Ergo: 1776 (1972) [❌]
