Alternate Versions

Upon its initial release, the film was cut in numerous different ways to suit different countries:- In France, Alwa was not Schon's son but his secretary - a change which actually had the effect of implying a homosexual relationship between the two men.- In the United States, a third of the film was removed and a happy ending was tacked on. This ending - in which Lulu joins the Salvation Army - was so unconvincing that when the film played in New York, its distributors placed a disclaimer at the beginning, emphasising that they were not responsiblye for its dismaying censorship.- The film was restored in 1983, but the fact that it originally ran 130 minutes and the restored version is only 110 minutes means that some original footage may be lost forever.
