The version of the film shown on US broadcast television alters two scenes. The opening scene of a couple making out in car with only their legs showing has been replaced with a montage of scenes from later in the film when Philly and Lester are burying the body. The bathtub scene where Ms. Mallo takes a bath with Philly has been completely removed with the exception of a single question. In the original version, Ms. Mallow asks Philly if he would like to take a bath with her. He says "Yes" and the scenes continues. On television, he says "No" and the scene ends.
All UK versions are substantially cut by the BBFC under the Protection of Children Act. A total of 3 minutes 20 secs were originally removed from all scenes showing a nude Sylvia Kristel and the boy in the same shot - thus heavily reducing the striptease, bath and 2 sex scenes. The 2006 release has been pre-edited by the distributors and suffers the same cuts.
