Director Paul Verhoeven experienced immense pressure to come up with a worthy follow-up for his critically and commercially successful Turkish Delight (1973). He clashed repeatedly with producer Rob Houwer over the screenplay and didn't get the budget to make the film on the epic scale he had intended. He has been quoted as saying that if he could ever redo one of his movies, it would be this one. See more »
A few more explicit shots of the rape scene were cut to avoid an "X" rating in the U.S. They are restored on home video in an unrated version. See more »
Katie Tippel is very similar to Turkish Delight. This film has tons of nudity in it. This is one of Paul Verhoeven's early Dutch movies. Rutger Hauer stars in this movie. This movie is also shocking like most Verhoeven movies. This movie was cut to avoid an X rating. I saw the unrated version from Netflix. I have never seen this movie cut. All of Paul Verhoeven's movies have nudity in it. Jan De Bont was the cinematographer for this as with other Paul Verhoeven's films such as Turkish Delight, The 4th Man, Flesh + Blood, and Basic Instinct. I have only seen this movie once. I wish I can own it. I also wish I did not throw away Basic Instinct. This is a very well done Dutch film.
