I mind clearly the VHS release (below) of this it had a label stuck on it saying "DIRECTED BY DENNIS HOPPER" (and pretty sure it mentioned Easy Rider in the promo blurb) because the printed cover says "Alan Smithee" after Vestron took the film off Hopper and cut it. Hopper went to the DGA and forced Vestron to remove his name. I've seen a bit of Catchfire and it was totally unwatchable but I've not seen Hopper's cut Backtrack so I'm going to give it a look 30 years later. It's great seeing LionsGate dig out this stuff from skips as it would languish on horrible $1 DVDs.
