I've been a fan of Buck Rogers since 1979, and this is the first I've ever heard of such a scene. The broadcast version on the DVD is exactly the way I remember it.

I hope you find it though, I'd love to see that.
I enjoyed the series as well.

Thanks for the starlog archive link!

any one see the Buck Rogers movie in the theater?

Gil said it was shot protected for 1.85

Was it widescreen in the theater?

^ I have never seen any version of BR in widescreen.

With Larson being involved and with BSG having gone to the theater it seems reasonable that Buck was shot that way. I saw BSG in the theater but alas not Buck.

I saw it at a drive in. I barely remember it though. I was about four years old. I remember the opening credits most clearly.

I could swear I remember the Galactica pilot only being released theatrically after the show was already on the air, at least in the US. Are you sure?

Yes, the BSG was released theatrically in the U.S. AFTER the series had its run on ABC (it was done prior to the premiere of the 'Galactica 1980' TV series.) It might have been released in Canada and in the European markets prior to BSG's premiere as a TV series in the states. (I always liked that in the theatrical version, Baltar gets his head chopped off by the Cylons after the Colonial Battlestar fleet is destroyed.)

The Buck Roger's in the 25th century film was released to theatres prior to it airing as the series pilot in NBC.

I did see the Buck Rogers prior in the movie theatre, and to my recollection, it was not shown in widescreen format.

From: http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Ba...Galactica_(TOS)
To defray costs, the three hour premiere was re-cut as a theatrical release. Several weeks before the TV series premiered in America, the series pilot appeared as a two hour film in Canada, Europe and Japan. Opening on July 7, 1978, the theatrical release did quite well, given modest expectations.
I still remenber the movie theater where I saw this version... now it's a Bingo Hall....
