Small market bookings, subsequent release waves, moveovers and second-run bookings began throughout the early months of 1978 and continued through the summer months. The movie was re-released in a revised cut in 1980 as the Special Edition. The movie’s first home-video release (the Special Edition) was in 1980. (The original 1977 cut of the film was not officially released to the home video market until 1990.) Its network television (an alternate cut) and cable TV (Special Edition) debuts were in 1981. Its first letterboxed home video release (1977 and 1980 cuts) was in 1990. A further revised cut was premiered in 1998 during a special festival celebrating Columbia Pictures’ 75th anniversary. A 40th anniversary re-release took place in 2017. (International dates varied by territory.)
