The opening credits scenes are so great

Watching Porter quickly go from broke to scamming and stealing his way to thousands of bucks, a new suit, a hotel room, a gun, and money in his pocket is genius. IMO the best part of the movie.


I can't swear this, but I think some years ago I watched it on TV and they cut one key bit:

Where he sits in an airport bathroom stall, reaches over under the next stall, and grabs the briefcase of another passenger, sliding it over to his stall and stealing the case and the contents.

I can see where airlines and airports would not want that "technique" too widely advertised.
