Rita Webb plays opposite George Harrison Marks in this rarely seen cult classic Sex Comedy or does she? I have the 2004 White Stag Entertainment DVD 85 minute version of this film and although Rita's name appears in the opening and closing credits she does not appear in this version of the film!

Part of the segment Rita is billed as being in "The Theatre" is in the film and features the same dressing room set as the above photo I have of Rita Webb and a clown who I thought was George Harrison Marks but not entirely sure now as the Clown and Rita as Brunhilde are nowhere to be seen!

 

All becomes a bit more clearer if not annoying from Wikipedia.... The film was released on UK video three times during the early 1980s, the video releases contained a more explicit version of the film than had been shown in cinemas in the late sixties. However this version was also cut for length, reducing the running time from 95 minutes to 84 minutes. Omitted completely was the "Old Dark House" story as well as Rita Webb’s role. Footage from the "Future" sequence was also deleted, including the punch line.

 

Clips of some of the missing footage in this story was used in the 1995 BBC documentary Doing Rude Things. The same cut down for length version was later released on US DVD.

 

So my question is has anyone seen the version with Rita Webb intact? or better still have a copy they could share with me? please get in contact via the site contact page if you have any information.
