What differences are you looking for? As far as footage, I don't know, but my understanding is that the Thief of Baghdad blu-ray is being released by Cohen Film Collection, which now owns the Rohauer Collection, the source (I believe) of the Brownlow/Gill/Photoplay version, which was released on HBO Video on VHS in the late '80s. What I don't know is whether there's any difference in footage between that HBO VIdeo release and this new Blu-Ray. The big difference, obviously, is its a 4K digital restoration that will be available in HD.
I know there were two versions from Image and Kino on DVD, but besides the difference in music scores I don't know what the difference is between those two.
