Due to the Hayes Production code (censorship) issues of the time, Director Billy Wilder was forced to cut some footage that was judged to be too racy to have in the film. AMC showed some of the censored footage on a "Backstory" episode. The cut material includes:- A full shot of Marilyn's skirt being blown clear above her waist, which was included in the poster but deemed too suggestive to have in the film.- Extended portion of the skirt scene in which Marilyn's skirt is again blown by the subway, and then there is a dialogue in which she tells the man "You should try this, it must be awfully hot in those pants."- A scene in which Marilyn is the bathtub covered with bubbles, and gets her toe stuck in the faucet. There is some mild innuendo in the dialogue between her and the plumber attempting to free her toe.- Different, less suggestive angles were used in the scene which included the famous "undies in the icebox" dialogue.
