DVD Talk says this in the review of the blu ray,

"Better still, this set includes something not seen in more than 35 years: the vastly superior pre-release cut of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, the Addio, zio Tom of Hollywood sci-fi. Until now, viewers had to content themselves with the still-powerful but heavily compromised theatrical release version. In an age when "Director's Cut" is rarely more than a marketing ploy, this one really is a game-changer."

i've only seen these movies on tv years ago and i have no idea which version of Conquest was shown. i can't wait to see the "directors cut" now

You would have seen the theatrical cut if you saw it on TV. In addition to the "directors cut" being a more fitting ending in that it wasn't compromised, the editing used in the theatrical cut during Caesar's final speech is a bit awkward too, once you have seen the way it was supposed to be.

Always best to see the theatrical cut of any film first in my opinion - see what was put out there for the world to see, then see the better version. With these films, best to come back since there are some changes with #4 that will impact #5.

The DC of Conquest is the best of any of the sequels by far. But both versions of Battle pretty much reference the theatrical of Conquest heavily so keep that in mind.

Caesar's speech in Conquest is so much better in the original form. i pulls no punches and is more nihilistic for sure, which is exactly in keeping with the mood of this awesome, but mean-spirited movie. One of the darkest 70's films there is.

Agree.

Finally seeing the original speech blew me away!
