Alternate versions:

According to the film’s producer Anthony Cardoza (in an interview by film historian Tom Weaver), the opening shower and murder scene were added after the film was completed because director Coleman Francis liked the risqué material.

Some prints are edited to show the woman clothed for the duration of the scene, with the only forbidden flesh shown being a very brief topless flash as she towels herself in front of a mirror. Other prints have a slightly longer version of the scene with more fleeting nudity.
