    Just bumping this thread for the eternal Expresso Bongo question ... Does anyone know of a full version on DVD? The normal one is 101 minutes, the collectors' edition runs to 102 minutes, the Kino dvd is 105 ... Nothing like enough time to include all the stuff cut out. Someone earlier on the thread mentioned a vhs copy with 'Nausea', so the complete film must exist somewhere. I just suppose it's not worth anyone's while to release it, since 99% of people are buying it for Cliff Richard's contributions.

    I think this situation arose when the film was re-issued in 1961 (to cash in from the success of Cliff's The Young Ones).

    EB was sent out as a support film with all prints trimmed of all the songs that did not feature Cliff. These trimmings were probably junked !
