(at around 1h 21 mins) When Meg's house has collapsed, Dusty runs up the roof calling for Meg. He reaches the window and the scene cuts to Jo and Bill helping Meg in the basement. When the scene goes back to the window, Meg is clearly seen standing on the roof outside the window next to Dusty in her nightgown. The scene later shows Dusty and another character helping Meg climb out the same window and onto the roof.
Despite being filmed in Panavision, the "Lenses and Panaflex Camera by Panavision" credit was used instead.
The UK cinema version was uncut though all video/DVD releases were cut by 1 second to remove two instances of the word "fuck" in order for the film to receive a PG rating. The BBFC added that "The swearing was very indistinct and we didn't hear it on the cinema version, but VHS and DVD versions are cut to remove it".
