Shouldn't there be several more L's in Stel-l-l-l-la!!

"Disappointing that it's another director's cut. Seems like I'm having a hard time finding an original version of an old movie on DVD."

The DVD of the Hawks/Bogart/Bacall version of The Big Sleep does this right. One side of the DVD features the 1946 theatrical release (the well-known version); the other side offers the 1945 pre-release version, which clears up some, but not all, of the plot inconsistencies. There is also a short documentary about the differences. I was really disappointed that Touch of Evil didn't get the same treatment.
