How the West Was Won (1962) Poster

Alternate Versions

Some prints (like the Swedish pan&scan video release) leave out the final modern travelogue scenes.
DVD versions list various running times: 150, 162, 165 minutes long. The theatrical version is listed as 162 minutes long.
Early UK video versions were cut by 2 secs to remove a horsefall. Later widescreen releases are uncut.
The 164 minute film has been digitally restored for Blu-ray DVD, with both a stitched wide-screen version and a "Smilebox" version that simulates the Cinerama wrap around. The restoration gives a unified single image, and completely removes the vertical lines that separate the three camera images, as well as the small jitter that was evident at the intersection of the three original film images.
