The Black Hole (1979) Poster

Alternate Versions

A broadcast of The Black Hole on daytime British television in the mid-eighties omitted the scene of the Angel flying through the arches, instead cutting from Maximillian on the mountain-top in Hell to the shot of the Palamino crew heading for the unidentified planet, having apparently survived.
The reason for this is possibly that the notion of heaven might not have been suitable for the young audience, whereas the Hell imagery follows on visually from the destruction of the Cygnus and therefore requires no interpretation.
70 mm and some 35 mm (distributed for example in Finland) film prints feature an overture before the start of the film with black picture (this is not included on non-letterboxed-video prints). This overture can be heard on letterboxed video prints on VHS, DVD and some broadcast editions, including Turner Classic Movies.
