1. Eight minutes were deleted from the finished print: the first depicted the killing of the evil Chan Lo and the second showed Rose switching places with Annie, putting makeup on her face. The Legion of Decency refused to allow the film to be released with this second scene uncut, due to Sister Annie’s association with the Salvation Army.
