That was the claim. However, the claim is not true -- I have the text in front of me. Slight changes were definitely made in the text to reflect the fact that Curly deliberately kills Jud after Jud asks Curly to shoot him and also to reflect that Jud does not fall on his knife. Obviously huge changes in Hammerstein's stage directions, which are really part of the original text -- ask any respected theatre historian, if you don't believe me -- were made to explain the changed ending.

This is the problem when people lie to your face and get away with it because many of us are too polite to call a lie a lie. Shades of Donald Trump, don't you think?
