Am I remembering correctly?


Did the original theatrical release of Norma Rae have the scene with NR in the motel with her paramour, getting smacked around, etc.? I haven't seen this in many years, but I don't remember that at all.

Yes it did. I remember the "Didn't you get your steak dinner..." line and then he hits her.

Just watched this on TCM and that scene is in it. Maybe you saw it on network TV and it was censored?

Sometimes, the edit for time. h the scene is somewhat essential to the characterization of Norma Rae, it is the one scene that could be cut and not affect the story.

I never watch movies on network tv, or watch anything else for that matter. They absolutely butcher movies, bleep out swear words that 5-year-olds hear at school every day.

TCM is the place to watch good films. (They show some bad ones too, but that's okay)
