Near the beginning of the dazzling museum cat-and-mouse sequence, Kate Miller takes off her left glove (important plot point) to display her wedding ring to the handsome stranger, Warren Lockman. Her purpose for this was not clear so the viewer can ... ...


Liz Blake: I'm sorry, am I bothering you?
Hood #1: Naw, you ain't bothering me.
Hood #2: But you're bothering ME.

At 55 minutes in the unrated version, Keith Gordon looks in the visor of his Super 8 camera. The format of the visor is 'Cinemascope', which has never been really possible with S8. Later, when we view the resulting movie, it is in the standard 4/3 format.

Alternate Versions

In the scene where where Liz (Nancy Allen) tries to seduce Dr. Elliot (Michael Caine), some of the dialogue was changed to avoid an X rating. The following line was deleted altogether for the R-rated version: Liz: All the time he's talking I can see the bulge in his pants. In the R-rated version, she says "He drops his pants, he forces me down on my stomach, kneels down behind me.", while in the X-rated version, she says "He drops his pants, spreads my legs, kneels down behind me." When Liz strips to her lingerie in front of Elliot, he says to her: "Now why would you want to do a thing like that?" In the X-rated version, Liz replies, "Well, because of the size of that cock in your pants." In the R-rated version, the word "cock" was replaced with the word "bulge".
