Osi, This review on Amazon refers to the blu-ray version with gold lettering and a candle on front (which looks like the version you are asking about). The review states that it is the edited 63 minute version.

Osi. Just dug the disc out of the archive and the B&W film loaded runs for exactly 1 hour 9 seconds. Included are the B&W cut version and colourised 1 hour 11 secs Also a few cartoons of variable quality. A second DVD of Christmas Wish.
For quality this is the best at the moment although the abridged version obviously. One day we may get the whole thing perhaps from our own film institute who seem to overlook the old stuff most of the time.
A long DVD is available also but the transfer was shocking I rarely watch it and tend to watch my 16mm print.
The Sims 1951 Blu-ray is appalling with so many issues & artefacts creeping in as it goes along which is a real pity.
