One Hour Photo (2002) Poster

Alternate Versions

An early cut of the film had several differences than the theatrical version.
  • The opening Fox Searchlight logo briefly becomes a negative image as it fades out. This is obviously a reference to picture negatives.


  • An alternate prologue before the main titles featured a narration by Williams on the red eye effect in human's and animals, while a photo of a family with red eyes, footage of animals with this effect and video of what's happening in the eye when this happens.


  • There was also a scene near the end where a police detective reviews the pictures Sy took of Will & Maya at the hotel. In the theatrical version these photos were never shown and it was left in question whether they were actually taken.


  • The argument between Sy and the photo machine repair guy was extended.


In this early cut a temp score was used featuring Thomas Newman's score to American Beauty (1999) and The Shawshank Redemption (1994). Hans Zimmer score for The Thin Red Line (1998) was used when Sy follows the Yorkins car (When he slips the photo in). 'Clint Mansell''s Requiem for a Dream (2000) score was used during the final chase sequence.
