Home video version restores several minutes of dialogue that were cut from the theatrical version after the initial release.
A deleted scene was restored to the film in 1990. In it, Waldo Lydecker described how he transformed Laura's appearance and introduced her to high society. The studio worried that this obsession with decadent luxury would be offensive to WWII soldiers serving overseas, so the scene was deleted from the theater version.
The version on Dvd has the 1950's 20th Century Fox logo, with a tilted zero created to widen the image for CinemaScope. The logo is also larger than normal because of having been cropped from the wide screen version.
