The ending credits listing for Universal Pictures' contributions should have included 1931 versions of "Dracula" and "Frankenstein".
British cinema and video versions were deleted by 10 seconds by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) to remove shots of a woman being beaten during the extracts from Vice Squad (1982), a crotch-grabbing shot from Dressed to Kill (1980) and footage of nunchuks during the extract from Ms .45 (1981).
