Like many American films of the time, The Brazen Beauty was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors required, in Reel 4, cuts of two scenes and the flashing of three scenes of a young woman in a boat where her gown was considered indecently low.[2]
