European Version


Anyone know where I can find the European version of this film? Reportedly, it has some scenes that are not in the American version.

reply

Really? Any scenes you've heard of or read about? I find this movie pretty ahead of it's time and would love to see an uncut version.

I don't know where (or if) the European cut of this film is available on video.

However, I can tell you that the differences in the two edits simply involve above the waist nudity on the part of Jan Sterling (when she answers the phone at home in bed) and with the girl student who's writhing around on the couch in the next room while Tony meets Mr. A for the first time.

I know this because of a documentary on Hollywood Censorship that ran on Cinemax ages ago. It even showed the footage. Unfortunately that documentary isn't on video either.

That's the only thing I found disappointing in the DVD of this - that they didn't dig that up and include it seperately.

reply

Yep ... I heard about this too. The girl on the couch is Jody Fair. I hope I can find this someday. Thanks for the info.

There IS a scene in another movie starring Mamie with a deleted scene that is showing up now. It is from Girls Town:

The scenes you describe are now on a DVD entitled "Hollywood Uncensored." Nerflix has it available for rental. I'm sure this is the show that was on Cinemax all those years ago.

Those scenes were shown on "Nightflight" on the USA Network during the mid-1980s.


God, I miss "Night Flight".

For that matter, I just really miss cable from the 80's. You know, when they actually played music videos on MTV, showed ballet and concerts on Arts & Entertainment...

HOLLYWOOD UNCENSORED is, as of this writing, still available on DVD from Amazon.com (June of 2014).

I remember renting and copying the original Hollywood uncensored VHS tape. Those scenes where shocking (for 1958) and hopefully one day they will release a DVD version of HSC with those missing scenes or st least an option to add them during viewing.

From reading her Wiki bio, Jan Sterling was better prepared to be a legit actress than many of her contemporaries...elite background, excellent education and the proof is a couple of nominations for serious dramatic awards. That said, it's is rather shocking and delightful to have discovered the mid-80s Shock Doc, 'Hollywood Uncensored,' available on disk from Netflix. 1958 was still the middle of the dying gasps of Hays Code puritanism and High School Confidential was the kind of exploitive crapazoid film pushing the envelop back then. But I had no idea that a mainstream actress, albeit sort of a B- or even C-level actress had bared one admittedly very perfect boob and nipple for the vaunted Euro-version. This was common in the day, their censors being much more liberal. I remember when Liz Taylor's Cleopatra came out, there were nude-ier cuts left in for Europe. Jan Sterling had a bitchin' bod, there's one iconic photo of her when you do a search, with her in a black bikini and high heels, very racy for the time period. But this revelation, that she let loose one of the pink nosed puppies, even for a brief, maybe 3 second scene in a B&W movie, is remarkable.
