In the UK, the distributors were forced to edit the film to remove a scene of cockfighting as it was considered to breach the requirements of the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937. Furthermore the distributors decided to make further changes to the film in order to lower the rating from '15' to '12A'. These additional changes removed detail of a blade embedded in man's head, accompanied by blood spurt, and a bloody bullet impact to chest. See more
