Speaking of altered prints.  The note abot LA NOTTE brought to mind my
recent viewing of STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, which I had taped off American
Movie Classics.  It was generally a good print, but I was surprised
when the film simply ended at the amusement park without the little
denouement bit of Ruth Roman and Farley Granger on a train. Instead,
there was a straight cut to the Warner Bros. logo.

I've noticed that a couple of synopses of the film do not mention that
last bit either.  Does anyone know if the film was released (or
re-released) without that ending?  It's not uncommon for such things to
happen on TV but AMC usually tends to be pretty good about not cutting.
