Wake in Fright

    Wake In Fright has a small censorship issue relating to older overseas and TV versions of the film. The scene in question immediately follows John Grant (Gary Bond) losing all his money. There is a high ceiling shot of John lying naked, face down on the bed in his hotel room. He gets up and walks towards the window, exposing his genitals. This scene is original and complete on this DVD edition. However in most overseas and TV prints, John is wearing underwear.
