Top Hat DVD

I just borrowed a DVD version of Top Hat. It's so WONDERFUL because I love hearing what Ava Astaire has to say about her father (so cute that she still refers to him as "Daddy" and she's over 60 year old). She's a very good reminder of how Fred was a beautiful and caring human being. What I would give to be Fred Astaire's offspring!

I've only seen VHS recordings of all the Astaire-Rogers films, and I noticed that in the VHS version of Top Hat, there's a cut in the beginning of the movie where Ginger Rogers tells Eric Rhodes that she wants to go back to America and after he says "I WILL KILL HIM FOR YOU" the camera cuts to her saying "are we leaving or aren't we?" in the DVD version, it seems to have the original version where Eric says, "for the woman, the kiss! for the man, the sword!" and she asks "and what about the children?" Does anyone know why that part was cut out of the movie in the other versions?
