The song was definitely there at some point. I have a friend who had some info on screenings of a rough cut in the UK earlier this fall that ran about 20 minutes longer than the final version. There was also a different ending that involved the end of the 1848 rebellion. From what I've read from people who saw that ending, they were glad it was changed back to the version we know. There was an interview with Tom Hooper recently where he mentioned that "Dog Eat Dog" might be back on the DVD. I think it was just cut for time. I'll be happy when they release a complete soundtrack. The version that's out now is missing half the songs! It's driving me crazy. I saw the movie for the third time today. We brought my aunt, who did a pretty good impression of that mom in the video of the guy who filmed his parents reaction to the movie. By the end, she'd literally filled an empty popcorn bag with all of the tissues she'd gone through. Actually, the best crier in our audience today was this guy who, in the midst of all of this sniffling and sobbing in the theater, blew his nose so loud it sounded like a foghorn. People started laughing, it was hysterical. I really love the movie. I love that it's so different from the stage version. I've seen the stage version so many times and I know it so well, that this felt like it was still something new, and it was great. And I loved Hugh. I've seen him sing live on Broadway 7 times. He sang that part exactly like I know he sings. And I love how sings, so it's all good. And I freaking loved his Bring Him Home. I loved it the first time I saw it, it made me cry the second time I saw it, and I loved it again when I saw it today. It didn't matter to me what high notes he did or didn't hit, because watching him walk through the rooms almost in a panic trying sort out what Valjean was thinking during that song, it was the first time I realized that "Bring Him Home" wasn't just about him praying to God to take him instead of Marius, it was the moment Valjean finally understood that he had to let Cosette go. Like with so many things about the movie, it just brought more depth to things than the stage version (which I love) can do. It was so good.
