Can anybody explain a discrepancy between some 16 mm prints and the
tape versions of the opening credits for Blow-Up?  Our tape version,
which is authentic I believe, shows dancers in black and white within
the cut-out letters of the word "BLOWUP" which is laid out on a field
of grass.  This concept is important to the figure/ground issue of
perception in the film and repeated with the image of the photographer
which is seen in the last shot against a field of grass and suddenly
pops out--is made to disappear by the director.  The 16 print to which
I have access has plain white letters with no action going on inside.
Who would do such a thing?  Why?
