Reply to ""Human Desire", the Movie"

Watched the TCM version yesterday after having seen the movie before and they botched the end by cutting it.  The version shown went right to "The End" after yardmaster Carl Buckley strangled his wife Vicki in a Pullman compartment because she was trying to leave him.  In the full version, the killer yardmaster is being chased through a train yard and in his panic steps out right in front of a mainline movement with the inevitable result.  TCM's hacked version leaves the viewer wondering if justice was ever served or if the bad guy simply took off for parts unknown.

Hah!  I thought I dreamed that sequence!  I guess I'm not going crazy after all!
