The texts in this article and also in the film's article speak about the second movement (Andante) from Howard Hanson's 1930 "Symphony No. 2, Romantic" played for the film's end credits. Having watched the original movie in the main theater of the University of Berkeley, California in 1980, I can vividly remember that the main themes of Hanson's 2nd Symphony were played repeatedly during the film, especially while external views of the Nostromo were shown, not just "for the end credits" as was the case in a DVD edition published much later. (please be reminded that in 1980 there were no DVD's) Can anyone also remember, please? --SciCorrector (talk) 02:47, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
No. As far as I know, in every version of the film that has been released, including VHS and DVD, the Hanson is in the ending credits only. Gingermint (talk) 04:41, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
