I've just watched Altered States as a series of You Tube sequences but no
Paradise Lost mention.

But I swear I remember seeing the film on its initial US release and early in
the film, in a scene in a college, some students are walking down a
college-building interior stair case, and one mentions her relief at not having
to take a course in Paradise Lost/Milton.

Question: I've seen a discussion online that the film was cut down from
Russell's initial version quite a bit. Could I have seen in 1980 a different cut
than is on the VHS/DVD?
