that scene alone would probably prevent it from being shown today.
What do you mean? It was on IFC, I believe, a year or two ago.
Dude...Earth calling...they want you to come back.
I guess I should have specified on broadcast or otherwise public television in a time since a bare breast was accidentally exposed during Super Bowl half-time that networks have been a little timid with regard to certain subjects for fear of government fines or other threatened retaliations.
Remember the public broadcast of Saving Private Ryan, uncut? I don't. Our local station opted not to show it in the face of the Super Bowl fiasco. I didn't disagree with them as I feel that it was not only a stupid move, but awfully damn egotistical of Spielberg to think his use of the word 'f**k' is art over anybody else's.
I'm certain there are cable stations that show unedited episodes of The Jeffersons, All in the Family, and other shows that would be too politically incorrect for today's so-called standards; there are other stations that won't show them unedited.
I said 'probably' as it is a supposition and I don't know for certain, but I would guess that some stations would be a little timid about a scene where a child is killed by a man hurtling him overhead and throwing him against a wall to presumably break his neck (I suppose).
You may want to look up 'probable' and 'absolute' in a dictionary.
