> Apparently some footage from "The Shining" made it into the U.S. theatrical cut. Who knew?!
I did, but I'm a major BR geek :-)
As to the nature of Deckard, Dave 126 points out, in the versions without the "happy ending" of them driving off into the sunset (and with the Unicorn Dream included), there's a big hint as Rachael walks into the lift. There are other hints in the film too.
Not to mention those spine-chilling lines "You've done a man's job, Sir" and "It's too bad she won't live. But then again, who does...?"
