This also got an airing at Nine Worlds over the weekend. Its the missing song from Rocky Horror Picture Show.
I love it. It has, for me, a wistful quality about it that next to nothing else in the show has.
It also throws an interesting light backward on the preceding scene which is nothing more nor less than a double rape, played for laughs.
For me, this scene suggests an ambiguity not just to Brad’s relationship with Janet, but also with regard to his own sexuality. I think it may have been cut because it slowed the action, shifted the film’s balance too far to the serious and was perhaps just too difficult.
Or maybe i’m just over-analysing.
Oh. Well, maybe you do.
Anyone who has thoughts, insight or knowledge into why this scene didn’t make it through the final cut, please feel free to send them to me.
