The line in question occurs at 14:58 into the blu-ray.  Listening to my most hi-fi listening device (Sennheiser HD600 headphones) I still hear the line as reported by the OP.

Boy, I came late to the party. I can't believe this has gone on for TEN pages! Anyways, I listened to the clip several times and to me I hear an overlapping of 2 voices. The first says "cut", while the second says right after "suckers". I distinctly hear "cut" not "c***". Not paying attention to it, I can easily understand someone hearing those not so good words.

Also, for what it's worth, the wav file sounds somewhat different from what's on my blu-ray.  That's why I think the compression of the sound may be playing a part as well.

The WAV is not compressed. But it's only the center channel.

I have to say without commenting on the veracity of the OP that I find this thread weirdly perverse...and that I'm deriving tremendous entertainment from reading it!!! :P

Yes, they and the title above your avatar are tied to post count.  If a user has a badge (moderator, reviewer, etc) then that will show in place of the generic gold statues that look different enough from an Oscar to avoid any scuffles with the Academy :)

I thought we were allowed to edit our title? I have.

The best part of this thread is that different members' wives all immediately heard the word "c**ksucker", it makes me think that they're all going from what is most familiar to them (similar to how some people hear what they want to hear) if you get my meaning. I wonder if the mixing was deliberate, to send subliminal messages?


In any event, I listened to the file, and while I want to hear the naughty word, I cannot. At best, you could perhaps mistake "punks" for "cocks" (chickens, of course), but I'm having difficulty with the "ucker" part, because the volume necessarily dips, since it isn't the same person talking. As far as I'm concerned, he is clearly saying "Break it up, you punks!" and then someone else interjects.

Actually they are investigating the issue.They have  already apologised for the  problem. They have also  asked for  several additional details. They  cannot lose their reputation should  a  person responsible for  the restoration, change some words  as an ego trip. Two other friends  who have viewed the  film,also heard the same words. It does make you wonder what else  is out there  where the restorer has done  similar  tricks.  If  you had heard the  words you would  know that they were inserted by someone during the restoration. The very slight split second pause  beforehand and a different voice makes it obvious.


Has Fox gotten back to the OP, beyond apologizing for the problem?

I think we all know the answer just as I think we all know no apology has been issued - apology for WHAT exactly?

Right.  We're sorry for your hearing a word that for some reason you seem predisposed to hear, but isn't on the soundtrack of a film we released on home video.  Please accept our apology, and know that we are investigating this, as our reputation is at stake.  Sincerely, Your Friends at Fox

Yes they did  send an apology and  a few days later also contacted me again  and  offered a  replacement disc if I returned the original one.I declined as it is now a collectors item. I thought that  I mentioned this in a previous comment.I also make Fox  aware of this  site in order for them to see that others heard the same words.

And I will accept that as the final word...close this thread...and allow us all to head off in other directions of the forum.


Thank you.
