If you’ve seen the full, unedited version of this film, you know that there is more cussing than a little bit. In fact, according to IMDB, some variation of the f word is used 133 throughout the film. While the number is large, I’m honestly surprised it wasn’t more than that. Though, there was plenty of cussing to go around, there was one person on set, who probably wished there wasn’t so much of it. In that same Ebony interview, this is what Redd Foxx had to say:

“I wish he hadn’t gone to profanity,” [Redd Foxx] says. I had done enough of that to kick the door down so he could work anywhere in the world without it. Besides he’s a funny dude.”
