    I see that the UK version of the "Dead Pool" (part of the Dirty Harry Boxset) has been cut by 12 seconds.

    Can anyone tell me what footage is missing out of curiosity?

    Hi Dirk,

    If my memory serves, I think there is either an attempted rape sequence, or else, the scene where Sonia Braggia (Mr Eastwood's ex) is tied to a chair and essentially humiliated.

    I think the cuts will be from these scenes. The cuts will be obvious: i.e. if it's a rape scene, then the cuts will be to remove excess degradation of a female character, and to sexualised violence. Ditto, if it's the scene in which Ms Braggia is tied and humiliated.

    You could check out:
    - the "BBFC" website at - www.bbfc.co.uk
    - the "UK DVD Cuts" website at - www.ukdvdcuts.co.uk

    Hope this is of some use to you.

    Pooch

    Thanks Pooch,

    I checked both those sites, but they were non-specific as to the material removed. I reckon your more than likely right.

    It's been a while since I saw this movie and it definately is the weakest of the 5.

    I actually bought just the first 2 so far (R1). Both seem to have some intersting extras.
