Bagdad Cafe

There are at least two different versions of this film in existence. The U.S. theatrical version is reportedly approximately 20 minutes shorter than the original German cut. We have not been able to determine precisely which scenes have been cut/restored, but it looks as if this disc is the longer German (European) version. This perhaps explains the discrepancy with the running time as detailed on the cover.
