When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
American Flyers as the movie, differs from the video version, which differs from the cable version. The opening sequence from the movie was changed for the video and cable. Some scenes were shortened and others were deleted altogether.
