There are British and US edits of Strangers but I don't know what the differences are. Both are available on the US DVD. Such variations are fairly common as most of you probably know and may also account for the La Notte thread.
(In case anybody's interested, a piece I wrote about some alternate versions is available at http://www.turnerclassicmovies.com/News/Index/0,3371,31|17|,00.html It's not highlighted or marked off but starts 2/3rds down with "All of this talk about Apocalypse Now Redux started us wondering about films that exist in two versions" and runs to the bottom of the page; material above that sentence is not mine.)
