It’s very so, Stanton.
I don’t know for Neri, but in Strebel and Garret cases there are continuous shots.
At first the authorization for public showing was denied. About three weeks later - after the usual appeal - Di Leo’s movie was rated VM18 with cuts (sexual intercourse in the greenhouse and lesbian kisses) and all references to incest removed. So it’s reasonable to think that female masturbation and pussy close-ups weren’t in the copy submitted to censors.
That’s true for the hardcore stuff but not for the unclothed version of the first killing, and the reverse is true for the scene in which Garko enters through the window surprising the girl “at work”.
I think that the scene was intended for the movie (towards the beginning we see cowboys and girls going up and down the Saloon stairs), but certainly not for the theatrical release.
Politicians, industrialists, VIPs of those years.
