Like many American films of the time, Triumph was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. The Chicago Board of Censors required cuts in Reel 3 of intertitles "What did you pay him" and "I or your haven't paid him yet, you will;" in Reel 4 intertitles "Its not done in these days, you pay for what you get" and "Your triumph or Paul Neihoff's," all scenes between man and girl where she seems to assent to his propositions, and scene showing the stabbing of the man; and in Reel 5 the scene of the suicide of the man and girl.[2]
