    I remember hearing a while ago that Clockwork Orange was trimmied inorder to recieve an R rating. If this was true, does anyone know if the current DVD realeases are cut?

    The "X" rated cut was rerated a number of years ago to an "R" rating. The current DVD is the uncut version.

    Originally released as an 'X' rated film in 1971, Orange was edited and re-rated to an 'R' in 1973.
    The original 'X' rated version was restored to video in 1996 and re-rated 'R'.

    Cut for the 1973 'R' rating were a few seconds of the fast-speed 3-way sex scene and the number of rapes in the gang-bang film Alex watches (as part of his treatment) was reduced.
