For the original UK cinema release cuts were made to remove some crude dialogue and footage. Among them a referral to spilt ball-bearings ("You can pick up Mr Hickson's balls"), the nurse's comment to Bernie after his shorts are removed ("What a big fuss about such a little thing") lost a shot of Bernie peering under the bed sheet, and Ted's hospital shaving scene was cut to remove the shots of Mick splashing him (below screen) with shaving cream. The latter was later restored to video releases although other cut footage may be lost forever.
