What's the version you've got?

Mine is a Grapevine VHS from the 1990s.

I have the old Kino DVD and it's pretty good overall; I've never felt the need to upgrade it, anyway.

TCM has broadcasted the 123 minute long KINO release and that's what I've saved to my DVD collection. I think my original copy was shorter.

Isn't there just the KINO and a Spanish edition, that looks like it might be based on that?
