Looking for the original “Johnny Guitar” opening credits

The opening credits appear to be changed.

Blu-ray

   

DVD

   

Does anyone know what the original credits are? If anyone has the laserdisc…

Paramount worked from the OCNs so the BDs credits are probably original if the text wobbles with the image. I think the DVDs credits are of a NTA reissue/TV print. NTA (who owned the Republic library) were notorious for modifying credits (sometimes doing completely new, simple background ones) and removing references to the original distributors.

I'll take a look and let you know.
I have an Arthaus DVD, its image and audio look very original (I assume it's identical with the Kinowelt DVD here: dvdbeaver), different with other releases.

Here's the opening credits picture:

The text wobbles with the image but I still think they are not the original credits. The same goes for "The African Queen".
