The U.S. distributor of the film, United Artists removed seven minutes of controversial footage in which a Nazi officer calmly expounds upon the cultural menace of Judaism. The removed seven minutes have been preserved on the director's cut U.S. DVD release. The director's cut version of the film featuring the cut seven minutes has been shown on TCM. See more »
Must have been 1967 when I was based at High Wycombe and often went to London for the day. The film was released during this year and wandered into the cinema. The title and posters intrigued me and I was just killing time.
I was amazed at how realistic this film portrayal was and how quiet the cinema was, not a sound from start to finish. The way ID cards/papers were used, the attitude of some people that collaborated, and the resistance starting to fight back, it was just brilliant.
I'd love to see it again,let's hope it is screened on TV but I don't remember seeing it on TV to date, unless it was during the 80's when I was working abroad.
