The last two minutes of the five-minute credits are completely silent (laserdisc and DVD at least). Whether there was originally any music there is not clear.
There are several differences between the original widescreen laserdisc and the DVD at the start and end. Both versions use the "Jobe's War" subtitle and it is unclear if that was used theatrically. -Laserdisc start: Windowboxed silent New Line Cinema logo (A Turner Company) the same size and shape as the 4:3 clips that open the movie. -DVD start (widescreen and 4:3): newer NLC logo with music (An AOL Time Warner Company) filling the screen, even taller than the movie's widescreen image on the widescreen version. -Laserdisc credits: image fades, after a moment crawl comes up from bottom, ends with the movie's title (Jobe's War version). -DVD credits: image fades, suddenly picture jumps 10 seconds ahead so the crawl is already halfway up the screen (music does not jump), and ends without the movie's title but with a short silent (new) NLC logo (widescreen) or no logo at all (4:3).
