The original UK cinema version was cut for violence and the later Warner video received 41 secs of cuts to horsefalls and the rape scene, though the print used was missing the shooting of the burning Indian and a shot of Jubal Hooker's face being hit with a rock. In 2004 most of the cuts were waived with only 14 seconds now missing to remove sight of horses being made to fall in a fashion that is prohibited under BBFC Policy and also by the Cinematograph (Animals) Act of 1937.
