Facts about

The huge success of The Dirty Dozen the year before had given director Robert Aldrich the opportunity to set up Aldrich & Associates. This gave him the freedom to pursue more challenging and stimulating subject matter, of which "The Killing of Sister George" was the first example.
When first submitted in 1969 UK censor John Trevelyan refused to grant a certificate unless the seduction scene was toned down and urged all 600 local authorities to boycott the film. 12 councils, including the GLC, overrode him and showed the film with their own X certificate. After heated discussions with the distributor the kissing scene was slightly reduced and Trevelyan eventually passed the movie. All video/DVD versions of the film are the original uncut one.
The word "lesbian" is only uttered once, 100 minutes into the film.
