this review of the special edition, sugests that Its not going to contain the lost footage..
For this to be a so called Special Edition release of this great movie, unfortunatly it is not.
This edition has the movie cut down to the running time of 112mins, were as the previous edition of this movie runs for 134mins.
If anyone is thinking about buying this great movie, release try and track down the previous dvd release, as there is nothing special here, the movie is cut and there is less extras on this new dvd and more on the old previous edition,
however, IMDB Can identify which version has the extra footage, and musical numbers...
