Hessler says AIP's head of British production "Deke" Hayward "would try to find some well known actor to dress up the picture--who at least Americans would be familiar with--which was a good idea. But she gave it her everything. I guess the management must have thought she was star material or something like that.

So he came, and of course he was quite drunk. Josephs' score was restored in the later uncut DVD releases. AIP also removed Terry Gilliam's animation credits. Hessler said, "Deke was the one who put that animation in, always being way in advance of everyone else. But to have Les Baxter do a kind of period picture where you have minuet dancing and that sort of thing, it's ludicrous. You really have to have somebody who has an idea of that time period. The US theatrical release featured the 'GP' rated print which replaced the opening animated credits with still ones, completely altered the music score, and was cut to remove all footage of topless nudity and to tone down assorted whippings and assault scenes.
This print was also used for the original UK cinema release in The film was a commercial success but Hessler was dissatisfied with it and calls it the least interesting of the four movies he made for AIP. Both films were not letterboxed, but employed a full screen, pan-and-scan process.
All DVD releases, however, have featured the full uncut version, which also restores the original Wilfred Josephs music score. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Alternate Versions The differences between the cut AIP version and the original edit released on DVD in the US are significant: The AIP re-edit repositions the coven massacre scene that occurs about half an hour into the film in the original version as a pre-credits scene. The sequence is also slightly trimmed to eliminate some nudity and also remove the shots of Hugh Griffith observing the action.
The original credits are Pythonesque animations by Terry Gilliam. These animations were replaced in the AIP re-edit by stills of some of the winged creatures. The music score was changed - the new music was composed by Lex Baxter. Wilfred Joseph did the original score. All topless nudity was removed from the AIP re-edit.
