The one thing that bugs me, is I remember a scene in the film that just isn't there when I have seen the movie on television. I remember it very clearly. When Samson is pushing at the pillars to bring the temple down, the crowd are laughing at his efforts. All of a sudden, there is a sound of the pillars moving. Then the building starts to collapse. There is a man on the roof of the temple looking over the edge. He has been laughing until suddenly, all around his legs the floor cracks, and he falls off the roof.

I have seen the film a few times on tv over the years. This scene is never there. I know what I saw when I was a little kid.......... My wife laughs when we have watched the film. I am always thinking, surely, sooner or later, there will be a copy of the film shown with this tiny scene in it....... it must exist somewhere!!
You weren't seeing things. I saw that movie and I also remember that scene.

In the middle 1940's I saw one of these movies as my first one.

Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs
The Wizard of Oz
Bambi
Dumbo
Fantasia
Pinocchio

I can't remember which one was first. All watched at the Tower Theater in Houston.

'The Man Who Knew Too Much', James Stewart and Doris Day. So exciting and I had the ...whatever a kid has for a pretty and older woman... crush on Doris Day. Just had to see 'Don't eat the Daisies'

I saw Fantasia on VHS when I was 3 or 4 too, but I was amazed by it. It remains one of my all-time favorite films to this day, and I think Disney has never made anything so magnificent since then. I have it on Blu-Ray now. My parents tell me that I used to pretend that I was conducting the orchestra, like Leopold Stokowski. I was not a normal kid, but I like that.
