America vs. Europe

Here is a quote from the trivia page for the “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels“:

The scene where Steve Martin is posing with the bikini-clad women on the beach was shot twice. For the American release, the women all had their bikini tops on. For the European release, director Frank Oz filmed the same scene with the women topless. Oz states in the DVD commentary that when he commanded the women to remove their tops, he felt like the most powerful man in the world.

Now let us hear all that crap about the free country once again…

P.S.: The DVD that I just watched had the American version of the film. Unfortunately.
