    I could swear that I've seen that scene, but maybe just stills from it in a Filmfax magazine. It made sense from the monster's confused and amoral logic point of view.

    This reminds me that there was a scene in Young Frankenstein where the monster crosses paths with a highwayman named Jack Spratt. Not lost for good luckily as it did get found to be included on the DVD. For some reason I found it pretty hilarious too! I think the highwayman stops mid 'stand-and-deliver' sentence and whimpers 'oh bugger' and then the camera sort of pans away.

    You're right -- there was. I had forgotten about that. Yes, that was quite disturbing I seem to remember.
    Also i seem to recall the scene where Frankenstein compares himself to god was cut...it's alive, it's alive! ( I am god.)

    Yes I have that DVD. It talks about a few cut scenes, including the 'tramps death' one which was pulled because people were so taken aback by it that they continued talking over the next scene.

    I was watching American werewolf on rental VHS aged 7 and distinctly remember the toast scene.


    Thanks, beccabear67. I thought I had not imagined it.

    I am also a massive fan of the Hammer/Amicus/Tyburn/Tygon films starring Peter Cushing -- although I am not aware of any scenes missing from these. If anyone can tell me different, that would be marvelous.

    Yes, what happens to some of the men who fall off that log bridge... it no longer exists from the 1933 film, so Peter Jackson re-staged and re-shot it! He did a fantastic job on it too. I haven't even watched that remake of Kong but I made sure to see that and the stuff about the 1933 film that was on a friend's box set.

    Never heard of that one. Interesting! I'm sure some of these cut scenes must exist somewhere. As I say, I know numerous people that swear they saw the American Werewolf stuff on dodgy VHS tapes years ago. I'm sure, likewise, that, the James Bond scene is still around.

    started a topic Missing/presumed lost movie scenes

    Missing/presumed lost movie scenes

    Does anyone have any missing/presumed lost scenes from movies that they would love to be found?

    For me it would be the missing/cut scenes from An American Werewolf in London., particularly the infamous 'tramps death' scene'. I would also love the Jack scene where the toast falls out of his neck and back on the plate (although I'm not the only one to have mentioned seeing this as a kid on one of the earlier VHS tapes).

    Anyone have any scenes they would love to see returned to the archives?
Working...
