lots of sources seem to disagree on the run time. it seems the american release version was distributed with an elvis movie as a double bill and its possible the distributor cut some scenes to fit.

 

Oh, wait.   This isn't another thread about Pretty Maids All in a Row.     So never mind.

it would be odd for portions of stock to deteriorate while the remaining film can still make a coherent edition.

 

the 89 minute running time for the american release was published in this nyt review from 1969.

The 113 minute running time could have been for the European version. Back then, more than a few films were edited for content here to pass muster with the MPAA ratings board.

 

Over in Europe, the ratings system was different and allowed more leeway with provocative content. Films that faced the MPAA's edits to conform to a Restricted ® or Mature (M) rating here in the states didn't have those same constraints in Europe so studios would release films with fewer cuts to provocative to the European markets.
