Das Boot: The Director's Cut (Superbit)
The IMDB lists the following cuts to this movie:
- Theatrical release is 145-minutes long, edited down from a six-hour miniseries developed for German television (available in Germany on home video)
- A 210 minutes Director's Cut has been re-released in USA on April 4th, 1997.
- Many of the original cast dubbed their own parts in the English language released under the title "The Boat".
- On the DVD release the subtitle content is significantly different from the version shown on cable. Hitler is not disparaged the same way at the going away bash for example.
