Alternate Versions

The 'Madness of Sister Ruth' (Kathleen Byron) with a classic scene of all-stops-out, sex-starved insanity was removed from the original US version to avoid offending the Catholic Legion of Decency.

This scene was restored when the film was re-released in the US in the 1980's.

The original trailer (included on the Criterion DVD) uses an alternate take of the scene where Sister Clodagh tells Dean he's being rule "and I have to do business with you whether I like it or not." In the movie this is shown as a close-up of her face, but a long-shot is used for the trailer.
