This DVD is a censored version.

White Lightning is one of my favorite Burt films. Unfortunately, this DVD is a watered down version of the excessive original. Not that you need it, but most of the foul-language has been poorly dubbed over to words like, "shoot" and "dang". One of the main character's deaths at the end of the film is cut - you don't see the villain shot, you only see him after the fact. I wonder if this was the only available print that MGM could find in their vaults? In addition, MGM adds insult to injury by releasing a full-frame (pan-and-scan) version! Ouch! Quality of the picture is good, but that's no reason to plunk down your hard-earned cash on an incomplete version of this film. I'm sad.
