The hard sell trailer, which is included as a special feature on the DVD, shows several scenes shot in more dramatic close-up, or from different angles, than in the movie - in fact, quite better than in the movie itself.

Vanessa Shelton: We can start again! I'll leave everything behind!
In the last scene, Jeff is shooting sniper shots, across building tops, from quite a distance at a moving target and through a glass elevator. The rifle, shown, being used is a Ruger 10-22; a .22 caliber semi-auto rifle. At the distance and target, the .22 caliber weapon would be completely ineffective.
The end titles are brief, lasting little more than thirty seconds, accompanied by Ennio Morricone's dramatic theme. The credits run out after a mentioning of a wig supplier. Blank screen. The theme music continues gloriously, till eventual completion.
The Anchor Bay DVD version restores eight minutes of footage originally cut by United Artists for the U.S. release. Because these scenes were never dubbed into English, they are presented in their original Italian language with English subtitles.
