Versions and availabilty
Sorry is this has been discussed before, I'm getting different answers depending on who you ask. I read the novel back in '86 and seem to remember on being on cable before that. So far, I recall:
Cable TV version (early-mid 80') that had searing and nudity.
Director's Cut: Swearing, no nudity, added scenes.
European version: Swearing, Nudity, just a shorter run time (97 mins)
It's been so long since I've seen a non-Youtube version, I remember a scene when Gary is trying to play cards with some of this relatives (and friends) and keeps changing the rules. They leave and he get tries to pick up a local girl and fails after being too aggressive.
Does anyone in what medial (DVD, Blu Ray) there are on?
