Like many American films of the time, Beloved Jim was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. The Chicago Board of Censors cut the four intertitles "My aunt surely picked a good wife", "And then Jim need never know", "You beast, I love Jim" etc., and "He was not man enough to admit defeat, but boasted of his conquest".[3]
