First Blood 30th Anniversary/Lost Footage

First Blood was released 30 years ago this week, and its still the best of the four.  Best Stallone movie too.  Something to mark First Blood being released that October is some new long-lost footage.  When they aired the movie in Canada on TV, the censors said it was too violent.  Scenes had to be cut, so much that it significantly shortened the movie.  So they replaced those scenes with unused footage.  Some guy found this actual version in his basement last year and uploaded the cut material to youtube.  In pretty good condition for a 25 year old VHS.  None of this was ever included in Blu Ray or DVD as extra’s.

    Hi there, my name is Regan Greenard from the UK. It was I that by chance got talking to a guy called Kevin Burton on the internet, and asked him if I could borrow the video tape, and sent it to my friend Herve right away, so it could be transferred and so we could share it with the other fans. I couldnt believe my luck when I put kevins tape in my VHS player and found what I did. 🙂

    Truly lightning in a bottle. A bit like the movie, thanks. This one montage is better than most movies this year.
