- conversation between snake-maker and Deckard is different and matches their
lips

- Batty says, "I want more life, father."
- Pris lifts Deckard up by his nostrils when she beats him up

This version was shown at the Fairfax Theater in 1990 and UCLA's Los Angeles
Perspectives multimedia festival in 1991. This was also the print shown at
a London sneak preview in March of 1982. A 35mm reduction of this version
was later shown at the Nuart and Castro Theaters in 1991. There were rumours
that THIS version was the original director's cut, but the official 1992
Director's Cut is not the same.
