The film was refused a UK cinema certificate in 1967 and only passed in 1977 after BBFC cuts to heavily edit the fight scenes. The 1988 video version featured a new opening montage of rape and violence scenes which were not in the original cinema print, and these scenes (totalling 11 minutes) were completely removed by the BBFC as well as shots of kidney punches during the hotel fight. The 2006 Cinema Club DVD restores the punches and was pre-edited by the distributors to remove the alternative opening scene. See more
