Streisand was one of the first female stars to use the F-word in a major film, which she does once in The Owl And The Pussycat. It helped earn the movie an "R" rating in its original release. However, depending on which version you watch at home, you may not hear the expletive. By cutting it out, the following scene in which Doris and Felix run away does not make sense! Streisand, however, felt the nudity killed the comedy in the next scene and asked for it to be cut.
