Perhaps colonel snow can find the script for VLV and the bit where it says Lucky removed cap and headphones as they are spoiling his hairstyle.

Did you have a good Christmas?


I'm not Colonel Snow, but here is the scene in the script:VLV.jpg

Thank you Ed A. Gosh, where do you get these scripts from?


A few of those scripts are for sale in PDF format here:

Beware of titles like Kid Galahad - it's not the Elvis' movie.
Another scripts are not original scripts but dialogue continuity scripts (used for translation into foreign languages etc).

It's a pity some interesting scripts are not available and when these scripts are auctioned you pay at least $ 800 or more.

I purchased many of my scripts around 20 years ago. Probably from eBay, but I really don't remember.

Also beware of "Frankie and Johnny". The only script that I have seen with that title is the 1991 movie with Al Pacino.

Scenes 85 and 86 were cut before the final production. Here are those scenes:

6. ROAD OR STREET - LAS VEGAS
as Lucky and Rusty tear along on their motor-
bikes. They slow up as they see two llamas
(saddled) in front of a snack place with a sign
across the front, which reads: "COLD BEER -
COCKTAILS AND PACKAGE GOODS - SLOTS - SNACKS"
Rusty pointing to this,

CUT TO:

7. MED. CLOSE SHOT - RUSTY, LUCKY AND THE LLAMAS

Rusty pets one of the llamas. Lucky reaches
out to stroke the other one's nose. The llama
spits on him. He jumps back. Rusty, laughing,
jumps up on the saddle of her llama. Lucky
shakes his head…"nothing doing". He points
to a direction o.s. … shaking his arm in a
definite gesture.

It’s not a blooper but this is the way how the waterskiing scene (see previous post from 26 december 2018 with page 33 number 11 from script) was shoot.
