SOLDIER IN THE RAIN (1963)
THE BELIEVERS (1987)

i don't see categories for directors, etc., to answer ?? from forum members.. i guess those days are gone..

I have seen these films several times, and, of course, they ended in the way they were filmed, the way they should have ended.. recently, I watched these films and they had entirely different endings in the final few minutes, and I am wondering if it's me or is there something going on..

both films are very good, but not extraordinary.. they are worth mentioning, but in no way could they be worthy of having an alternative ending.. many films made here have altered content for foreign release; many foreign films have altered content for release in the usa.. neither of these films would qualify.. so, what could it be that would put a film on cable tv with a different ending than the ending given in the initial release of the film? maybe imdb should have (does it?) a link for films with alternative endings.. example: in THE BELIEVERS (original), the last line of dialog is shown below:

[last lines of film]

Jessica Halliday: [smiling at Cal] I did it. We'll be safe now.


.. however, when i saw the film recently, it ended sooner.. cal is shown carrying his son out of the building where cal was fighting the "bad guys" who would have sacrificed his son; "Jessica" was not in the scene.. so, what's the deal? can i find out whether these films (or any film) have alternative endings which are acknowledged by someone (some website) who knows about this stuff?


but, i could be wrong!
