Mondo Trivia: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

While checking out the Menu on the DVD for Invasion of the Body Snatchers, I paid little attention to the random images on it.  This is what it looks like...
The key thing is the shot of the woman in the lower left of the picture.  While this is a bit of a SPOILER to the film (as the shot is taken from over an hour into the film), it is also not how it looks in the film.

Well, here is the explanation...

In the Theatrical Version, the Pod version of Barbara Bach's character is naked, as it hasn't taken her clothes and made the switch yet.  However, they shot the same post-transformation bits in an alternate form for television...
So yeah, they used a shot that is NOT even from the movie you are about to see.

It would be one thing if the Scenes were on the DVD, but I didn't see them anywhere.  Confusing right?
