When I saw The Truman Show at the cinema, it was edited more heavily to make it look like a documentary about how the show was made, by whom and the actors in it, etc.
Some things were mentioned about Truman's best friend, Marlon, being an alcoholic in real-life and yet still having to advertise beer (via product placements) and have a "brewski" with Truman.
Also, Truman's wife is questioned about her part and is asked if she is "compensated for any sex-acts" with Truman. She throws a hissy-fit and tells them to turn off the cameras, shouting that she was promised there wouldn't be any questions like that.
These things and a few other, small bits, are not in the DVD print - although some are in the deleted scenes section.
Much as I like the film in the form I have and as much as it loses nothing of the story to cut those scenes, I have always felt that the version I saw originally had a much darker tone because of them and was a better version of the film. I really would love to see it in that form again. Does anyone know of an alternative cut, directors cut or theatrical print?
Also, does anyone know why the film would have been altered in this way between theatrical release and DVD print?
