But UK Netflix's version of the movie omits this scene. Instead of showing the couple lovingly shedding their mortal coils together, it just cuts to the birds and ends. The weirdest part is that no one's exactly sure what the hell happened here. Netflix claims they didn't edit the film, and that this was just the copy sent to them.
So if they really didn't edit the movie, where did this phantom ending come from? No one knows! Even the fancy DVD edition, which is crammed full of deleted scenes (and ... stickers, for some reason) doesn't contain this version. So somewhere out there is a rogue editor, intercepting mail to tinker with depressing love stories. Hey, maybe next you could try altering Titanic so that Rose shimmies over to make some room for Jack on that door?
