Once Upon A Time In America / Re: Finding The "First Version"

This might be it. Emphasis on "might."

Hi, this is my first post here.

Actually, if you look at the boxart, it says "The original motion picture, as shown at the New York Film Festival." Also, the movie is split into two tapes. I don't think this would be the case at all, if it was the 139 minute version. Martin Scorsese even said that America eventually got to see the longer version,  later that same year in 1984, four months after the initial American release. The 1984 New York Film Festival was in October.

Finally, I could have sworn that when this movie first came out on VHS, WHV offered consumers the choice of either the short or longer versions.
