Man's Castle is a 1933 Pre-Code film directed by Frank Borzage, and starring Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young.

Columbia re-released the film in 1938, to take advantage of its stars' much greater popularity. However, with the Production Code in full force, the Hays Office mandated nine minutes of cuts to win a seal of approval. This resulted in a number of blatantly obvious jump cuts where racy dialogue has been removed, as well as the deletion of a shot of a presumably nude Young (or more likely a stunt double) diving into the river. This 66-minute version is all that currently survives, although Sony Pictures (the current owner of Columbia) continues to search for the missing trims.
