[about to be hanged]
My friends, I don't care whether you're for me or against me. All that matters is that you've come her today in your thousands to give me a grand send off.

UK censor James Ferman requested cuts for the UK cinema version to the infamous horse-whip fight between Faye Dunaway and Marina Sirtis claiming that shots of whipped breasts should not be passed by the BBFC. However he was overruled following protests by Michael Winner, who was supported by Kingsley Amis and Karel Reisz (among others) after they viewed a private showing of the film. Following the introduction of the 1984 Video Recordings Act Ferman got his wish and the scene was edited by 13 secs for the 1987 VCI video release. Those cuts were waived for the 2016 video release.

This movie is listed as an action/comedy, but the only thing remotely amusing is in Marina Sirtis's nude scene. While running away, it is quite evident that she has a tan line that indicates a French cut bikini bottom, something I would think was quite rare in the 17th century.
I highly recommend that instead of this video, one either rents the original or a copy of Finney's excellent "Tom Jones".
