The high school version (which is still excellent, but with a male
voice over) lacks: the voice from nowhere, the n-word scene (complete
with n-word sayer's friend signally "Not me" and trying to creep away),
Molly Ivens, the film clips (no Brando), the stand-up saying "Charge?",
the fishermen on the island, the Dickens/Austen discussion in the library,
the Cajun French-English couple, Ted Hill showing an entry at DARE,
and the two little girls doing "Mama Mama come here quick".
Ok, now I know there are at least three versions. Maybe more. I've never
seen the n-word version, but I've seen a version that includes all of the
rest of the above and also a version that includes some of the above (e.g.,
the fishermen, the Dickens/Austen, the two little girls) but omits some of
the above (e.g., the film clips and stand-up comic).
