A recent theme had to do with the advisories at the beginnings of
videocassette and cable versions of films.  I just happened to rent a video
of THEREMIN, Steven Martin's  documentary on the Russian inventor (Leon
Theremin a.k.a. Lev Thermen) of the odd musical instrument which bears his
name, and noticed an advisory that said it had been edited for content.
Does anyone know what may have been altered between theatrical and video
versions?  The video ran 84 minutes. Brian Wilson's use of the F-word in
describing his employment of the theremin on "Good Vibrations" was not
censored, so I can't imagine what might have been edited out.
