Barbarella - Originally M on initial release with nudity, recut for re-releases without nudity & re-rated to PG. Only the M version exists on DVD and Blu-ray with the PG rating intact.

Saturday Night Fever - Originally R rated, re-released theatrically & recut with less swearing & re-rated to PG. Now there is the R rated version and the unrated Director’s Cut. Supposedly the proper PG version is gone.

Note: this is for the US.

The Passion of the Christ got a re-release with 5-6 minutes of gore and brutality cut in an attempt to garner a PG-13 rating but they didn't get it, so the new cut went unrated.

Funny enough, I think I've only seen the PG version of Saturday Night Fever. Back in the day.

In addition to ones already mentioned (Saturday Night Fever, Barbarella), John Boorman's "Excalibur" also was originally released Rated R, and later had a PG cut, also re-released. I think only the R version is around today.

This was for movies that occasionally proved popular and a lot of younger audiences were interested, but couldn't get in, due to the rating.They'd make a cleaner cut for the kids.

Most filmmakers, of course, were solemnly against this, so it wasn't done very often.

In the case of this one, it is because it appeals mainly to a religious audience, and many of them wouldn't see an R rated film. They were hoping to bring in more of the intended target audience by cutting it.
