Synopsis
(White Crocodile Queen)

Sumarna, a crocodile handler, gains the talisman that can conquer any vicious alligator, after killing his colleague. Even though he has the talisman, he is also cursed. Twenty years later, two of his children are dead. The first one dies in the crocodile pool, so all the crocodiles are later culled. Then the second one dies, hit by the child’s own motorcycle. Only his daughter is left, Murti, who is also shadowed by death. Sumarna then confides the story to Larsih, a young widow, who is the incarnation of the White Crocodile Queen, now possessed by the spirit of his colleague whom Sumarna has killed. Parlan, religious figure in the village, and brother of Sumarno’s slain colleague, discovers the secret of the White Crocodile Queen. Finally, the white crocodile can be defeated. Murti and Jeffry, partners in the crocodile trade, who were abducted, are then saved.

I compared the vcd with the laserdisc.

these are random screenshots to compare the picture quality of both mediums.
the laserdisc has more color and the image is sharper / shows more details


more or less all nude or love scenes are not on the vcd.
also a few short blood scenes were not on the vcd.

the nude scenes with suzzanna are most likely not with suzzanna but with a stand-in.
all scenes were is suggested too see suzzanna naked, you can see tits, but not suzzanna's face, or only the back of her head.

the "time" I mentioned is based on the runtime of the vcd.

VCD disc 1
04:50 / +/- 0:12min
Crocodile hunter pisses on the head of the father of the crocodile queen


06:25 / +/- 0:10min
Crocodile eats corps of the father and mother of crocodile queen


10:44 / +/- 0:24min
Crocodile queens servants report to their queen that somebody is killing crocodiles


12:37 / +/- 0:44min
Queens servants with transparent bikini's


12:45 / +/- 1:00min
Couple having sex


14:50 / +/- 4:34min
Suzzanna is having sex with the goofy son of her lover, a few times we see some stand-in tits


20:55 / +/- 2:56min
Suzzanna is having sex with her lover .... scene before she was doing it with the guys son! we see more stand-in tits


VCD disc 2

03:14 / +/- 0:20min
Crocodile rips of leg and eats it


20:50 / +/- 0:07min
Small crocodile digs into belly of girl (more detailed than on vcd)


21:49 / +/- 2:39min
Silly song!


23:55 / +/- 0:43min
Queens servants. very short shots are cut. more or less every time the girls are in the screen.


29:29 / +/- 3:35min
Crocodile queen has sex with the boyfriend of the crocodiles hunter daughter, and the daughter is being tortured


29:47 / +/- 0:24
Crocodile hunter is calling for the crocodile queen .... she has to leave the sex scene, and her cave starts to collaps

as far as I know, there is no english dub available of ratu buyay putih.
The only Suzzanna movies that are available with an english dub are "the Snake Queen" and "Queen of Black Magic"

untill now, all Suzzanna laserdiscs I found run atleast 10/20min longer than the vcd's. and my impression is that allmost all suzzanna movies have Nude scene's in them.

You mean on LD or VCD?

-----

It's a shame that nobody has set out to release these movies on Blu-Ray. These movies have a huge fan base, but it's so hard to get hold of a decent quality, uncut release with english dub or sub. Surely some negatives must remain...
