Hello Colodude...I have not purchased the blu-ray version. Maybe at some future date I will do so. The stats here on Amazon have the movie clocking in at 88 min. That has always been the length of time for every video incarnation of this great film. Had the original scenes been edited back in the film would run at least five minutes longer. One might of hoped the so called roadshow edition of this film would have been included in the newest "SHOUT" edition...FOX did this with THE SAND PEBBLES. No, it is pretty clear that Mel Brooks considers the video version of this film to play best. We'll have to be satisfied being able to view these "deleted" scenes as separate video extras.
