Like many American films of the time, The Clemenceau Case was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors for the 1918 reissue of the film cut, in Reel 4, two scenes in Iza's bedroom between her and Constantin beginning with her locking the door, Reel 5, scene on couch between Iza and her husband in which gown falls from her shoulder, and the stabbing.
