As per Brad Stevens' notes (it was thanks to his years of painstaking comparisons which helped me to do the ultimate edit). We compared just about EVERY video and DVD release over the past 5 years or so in order to construct this Optimum version.
English-language version, as seen on Media Blasters' original DVD.
Title: LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN.
This edition is letterboxed at 1.85. It runs 95m 30s (not including the AIP logo added to the front of the film) at 24 fps.
This transfer features the original credits sequence, but replaces the actual credits with new video-generated credits (thus changing the title from A LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN to LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN).
Media Blasters' transfer is cut in the following places.
1- 1m 57s in. 5 shots of nudity (totalling 21s) have been cut.
2- 3m 33s in. 20s of nudity as Carol lays down on the bed have been cut.
3- The first 30 seconds of the sequence intercutting Carol's dinner party with the orgy taking place in the apartment next door appear here between 8m 15s and 8m 45s. In the Italian transfer, this section appears somewhat earlier. In order to retain the original order of scenes, this footage should be moved to the 7m 43s point.
The 15s of orgy footage that appears immediately after the above section in the Italian version have been entirely removed from the English-language cut.
4- 15m 45s in. 20s of Carol's hallucination cut: the camera pans down to reveal a wound on a female corpse; and the following shots of the bird in flight.
5- 16m 14s in. 14s of Carol kneeling before Julia cut.
6- 16m 24s in. 2s close-up of Carol cut.
7- 16m 33s in. After Carol's fur coat falls away, 2s of nudity has been cut.
8- 16m 36s in. All shots of Carol stabbing Julia between the breasts have been cut.
9- 17m 9s in. Several rapid zooms in to Carol as she falls in dream cut.
10- 24m 7s in. An entire 4m 16s sequence has been cut: Carol having dinner in her apartment; she is called away to phone; talks on phone; runs to the door of her apartment.
11- 25m 21s in. Close-up of Carol and shot of stab wounds on corpse cut.
12- 46m 51s in. The sex scene has been shortened by 12s.
13- 51m 9s in. The entire scene in which Carol sees the butchered dogs has been cut (33s).
The end credits have been changed: they now identify AIP as the distributor.
Italian-language version, from Media Blasters DVD.
Title: UNA LUCERTOLA CON LA PELLE DI DONNA.
The Media Blasters transfer runs 97m 56s at 25 fps. It has been cropped to full-screen (from an original ratio of 1.85:1).
This version has been cut in the following places:
1- 4m 17s in. The shot of Carol (Florinda Bolkan) kissing Julia has been shortened by 20s. The missing footage can be found between 3m 45s and 4m 5s on Media Blasters' English-language transfer, and between 3m 44 and 4m 4s on the pre-cert UK video.
2- 9m 44s in. 5 seconds of a naked woman walking across a room. This footage can be found between 9m 16s and 9m 21s on Media Blasters' English-language transfer, and between 9m 1s and 9m 6s on the pre-cert UK video.
3- 9m 46s in. 11 seconds of the woman (previously seen walking across the room) kissing a man. This footage can be found between 9m 23s and 9m 34s on Media Blasters' English-language transfer, and between 9m 8s and 9m 19s on the pre-cert UK video.
Media Blasters' re-release uses the AIP beginning and end credits. It is cut in the following places:
1- 17m 13s. Shot of Bolkan screaming cut.
2- 17m 54s. Shot of woman kneeling in front of Bolkan shortened.
Note that the following stabbing sequence is complete in this transfer. Since I believe that your compilation uses a handful of cropped images in this sequence, you may wish to substitute the equivalent footage from the current Media Blasters transfer.
Note. From 26m 10s to 26m 21s there is a brief scene in Italian with English subtitles. This appears in unsubtitled Italian in your compilation.
Note. From 26m 21s to 30m 6s there is a long scene in Italian with English subtitles. However, an English soundtrack is available for this scene (it appears in English in your compilation).
Note. From 30m 47s to 30m 57s there is a brief scene in Italian with English subtitles. This appears in unsubtitled Italian in your compilation.
3- 58m 8s in. A shot showing a light going out, plunging Bolkan into darkness, has been cut.
