Look! It’s black;” 4) Delete dialogue and sequence of Rosemarie receiving payment for her trade, 5) Delete the scene in which Riccardo, the pimp, defends Rosemarie from a visitor in the entryway; 6) The scene in which, at Riccardo’s place, Rosemarie pulls up her skirt to show the underwear; 7) The scene in which Rosemarie tries on the fur coat the vendor brought to her and in taking it off shows her naked back.
