The Death of Richie (TV Movie 1977) Poster

(1977 TV Movie)

Alternate Versions

The original NBC telecast, of The Death of Richie in January, 1977, had Richie scream as his father kills him with the shotgun. The NBC Censors thought this was too intense, and edited the scream from all subsequent showings. This sound-byte is not available on any DVD prints or current editions of the movie and is presumed "lost", to the point where today's audiences (and even those who saw reruns of the film on television) are completely unaware that such sound-byte did occur in the film.
