Released theatrically at 141 minutes; laserdisc reissue is 180 minutes and features deleted footage and an additional musical number titled "Cool Considerate Men".

For the 2002 DVD release, the film has been shortened slightly from the laserdisc version, to 166 minutes. The overture and entr'acte music have been removed and the Song "Piddle, Twiddle, and Resolve" has inexplicably been shorn to its original release length, as well as "Lees of Old Virginia" (the reprise has been removed). On the other hand, a short piece of footage following "Cool, Conservative Men" has been found and reinserted. The replaced footage has been repaired, giving the DVD a much better look visually than the laserdisc.
