Cut Scenes & Alternate
A deleted scene presented on the DVD shows Bond being bailed
out of a Paris jail by "M" following his taxi
chase of May Day. The scene shows Bond collecting his personal
effects, including the wristwatch with garrote wire from
"From Russia With Love", an ink pen filled with
acid, and a cigarette lighter that's a flame thrower.
The BBFC requested cuts to the film in 1985 for cinema
exhibition, and this cut version was subsequently released
on both video and DVD in the UK. Two kicks to the crotch
were removed, and the image of a nude woman in the opening
titles was altered to mask her nudity.
Producer Albert R. Broccoli later stated that the production
suffered from studio budget cuts. One major scene that got
the chop prior to shooting featured Q in the field with
his "snooper" robot investigating Zorin's pumping
May Day: "Someone will take care of you!"
Bond: "You'll see to that personally will you?"
When Stacey breaks a vase containing her grandfather's ashes
over a thug's head, there are no ashes inside.
