The movie One, Two, Three (1961) is a Billy Wilder film starring James Cagney. In the film Cagney plays C.R. "Mac" MacNamara, a Coca-Cola executive in West Berlin having been assigned there after a fiasco in the Middle East. Mac wants to eventually become the head of Western European Coca-Cola operations. He is tasked with taking care of the 17-year-old socialite daughter of the company's CEO when she comes to visit Europe. Of course hi-jinks ensue.

In looking at the IMDb page for the film it lists the following run times for the film:

1 hr 44 min (104 min)

1 hr 48 min (108 min) (UK)

1 hr 48 min (108 min) (banned) (1962) (Finland)

1 hr 48 min (108 min) (Ontario) (Canada)

Additionally the Blu-ray of the film lists a runtime of 1 hr 45 min.

Neither IMDb nor Wikipedia list any alternate versions of the film. I am unable to find any information on the reason for the different lengths of this film or if there is a difference between the UK version, the banned Finnish version, or the Canadian version. Can anybody help?

  • Funny, you'd expect the country it was banned in to have the shorter version. – Jenayah Feb 2 at 21:32
