Alternate Versions

On the UK DVD print in the scene where Gene Wilder pretends he is pointing a gun at Joan Severance when she walks out of the shower, the camera seemingly zooms in to a head & shoulders close-up of her. This has obviously been edited for DVD purposes because on the original VHS edition her breasts are clearly seen in the shot. As it was clearly one of the standout scenes in the whole movie it was very apparently missing when the DVD was released. See more »
