Yeah...it's a terrific movie...just make sure you get--> Léon: The Professional...Deluxe Edition.
It's uncut...w/ over 20 minutes of restored footage.
You don't want the 110 minute version.

  You could always rent movies before you buy them.  I found I've saved quite a bit of money renting a movie and not liking it instead of rushing out and buying it.  Just my philosophy.

A question for our euro members, it came to my attention today that the version of the film we have here in US is different from the international print ie., Claudia shows Bert her boobs, kown if there is any truth to this guys/gals?

i know this is for our brothers in europe but...

she does show him her boobs. of course u dont really see them it is below camera level. so i am going to assume u mean full frontal nudity.

it comes to my attention in many interviews(and a lot of searhing on the web! Grin) that CLAUDIA CARDINALE
never posed or was photographed nude in a picture or movie ever in her career(unless u count her wearing a towel over her naked body as nudity, but i for one do not.).

which is actually very noble of her. she is very much a sex symbol. i cant really think of another sex symbol that has not posed nude at least once in her career.

women celebrities like BRITNEY SPEARS and others will eventually do one day. trust me once britneys 15 minutes are up she will resort to anything. and that goes for all attractive female celebrities today.

but sadly CLAUDIA never has had anything done in the buff. which in my opinion makes her even more sexy, since her body will be a mystery forever.

Please correct me if i'm wrong but on the commentary track of the OUATITW DVD Cardinale pretty much says what Hex mentions about her never posing nude in any movies.Apparently Leone wanted a camera view of below her skirt as she stepped of the train but Cardinale would have none of it!
However i'm definately gonna have another look at my Professionals video!!

Cigar Joe,i watched my Professionals video last night and as Hex says she does reveal her boobs but you only get to see her back and shoulders(unfortunately!).
I had a look at the SE OUATITW dvd and it is in the first documentary on disc 2 where Cardinale says she would never sell her body for money!
I suppose it is possible,CJ,that continental versions of The Professionals may reveal a bit more flesh.Apparently a few of the late 60's/early 70's Hammer horror films contained extra nude footage on the continental releases because it was thought there was more of a market for titilation than in Britain!
