Just one scene at the begining right after the credits when Cahn goes to the lakefront of Chicago to watch the sun come up and shares a donut with a black fisherman. The scene color doesn't match the rest of the movie looks to purple and a lot of film specks.

That scene was deleted in the original cut? I thought it was the most beautiful scene in the film! It was a nice prelude to the action and helped to fully dimensionalize Cahn's character.

I had a feeling it was that scene! Personally, I liked the scene... shows that Frank (after being incarcerated for so long) has an appreciation for the beauty of life around him... and it's a great breather after the opening safecracking.
I believe mann also sped up some shots in the ending shootout.
