Cut Scenes & Alternate
The original teaser trailer features a short scene not used
in the final film: While Bond is chasing Scaramanga on his
island, he throws a Molotov cocktail and shoot it to explode
into a ball of flames.
The airing of this film on "The Bond Picture Show"
on ABC have edited Chu Me's rear nudity when James Bond
meets her in Scaramanga's swimming pool. More waves were
added to the water to obscure it.
The first American TV broadcast on ABC in the 1970s featured
alterations to the opening credits to obscure partial nudity.
On the MGM DVD release, the complete ending to John Barry's
score is heard when Bond kills Scaramanga in the fun house.
On previous releases, the score is stopped abruptly when
Bond fires, diminishing the effect.
Bond: "I've never killed a midget before, but there
can always be a first time!"
Bond: "Who would spend $1 million to kill me?"
M: "Jealous husbands. Outraged chefs. Humiliated tailors.
The list is endless!"
