"Lost Horizon" was cut by 23 minutes after its theatrical release. The deleted footage consisted of three songs: "I Come To You", "If I Could Go Back", and "Where Knowledge Ends, Faith Begins"; plus two reprises of "Living Together, Growing Together" were cut, and a fertility dance sequence was also edited out.Pioneer reinstated the three songs for a 1992 Laserdisc release while the remaining footage was restored for the 2011 DVD version.
