The version that John Wayne wanted for the Theatrical release was released in the mid-nineties as a Roadshow-version on VHS and laser-disc. Also, this version was rootedly refurbished by the "classic-approved" Robert Harris & James Katz who had already worked on movies from Alfred Hitchcock, "Around the World in Eighty Days" or "Ben Hur". So the "Restored Director's Original Cut" was made. This version is clearly superior to the shortened Theatrical version because it erases several plot holes, allows the audience to identify with the characters in a much deeper way and gives some characters - especially Jim Bowie who has been mentioned before - a lot more depth. But still, the Director's Cut has not been released on DVD yet. So called "Extended Versions", like one example that was released in Australia, only contain way more bonus features than the usual single disc releases and have that name illegitimately. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
