"THE OUTLAW" (1946)
The original ending of the THE REVOLT OF MAMIE STOVER (1956), which had a more pro-feminist stance, has Mamie (Jane Russell), after Jimmy’s rejection of her, walking down the hallway of The Bungalow, wiping away her tears, then entering another room and greeting her next customer with her catch-phrase, “Hello Honey, you waitin’ for Mamie?” But for some reason, it was decided to “redeem” the Mamie character and the final released version dissolves out just as Mamie wipes away her tears, then cuts to Mamie telling a police officer she’s given up her old lifestyle, given away her fortune and is returning home to Leesburg, Mississippi. But just before the picture dissolves out, a framed sign that reads in all caps: “LET NO MAN WASTE YOUR TIME” can be seen very briefly.
I’m sure this sign was much more prominent in the original ending of the film.
