Alternate Versions (3)

  • There are two versions of this film: the British release and the International/American release. Some examples are: a differing voice-over speech; some changed dialogue; the opening scene where Harry returns home after 3 days away is a different take and the nightclub scenes are longer in the British version. The scores of the two films are also entirely different and alternate shots are used at the ending in the British version.
  • An alternate British version exists that includes scenes deleted in the American version, different title credits, a different opening scene with Widmark and Tierney, and a completely different score composed by Benjamin Frankel. This version runs 101 minutes, 5 minutes longer than the American version.
  • The following scene is lacking in some prints: After Helen discovers that Phil is dead, she learns that he has willed everything to Molly, an old flower seller.
