There’s a whole Hollywood history of scenes and characters – whole endings even – that never made it to the final cut. Back in the days when we all shot on film – as with Bordello of Blood – pieces of story and character really did end up on the floor. There’s a story in this episode about executive producer Bob Zemeckis cobbling together scraps TAKEN from the cutting room floor to imply a relationship between two characters that we absolutely never shot.
Such is the magic of editing.
To be absolutely honest, I hadn’t planned to include an episode like this when I laid out the podcast initially. I knew as I interviewed Gil and Ed and Greg and Victoria and Todd and Colleen (and Randall – Randall’s a podcast unto himself he’s got so many stories!) that they were giving me way more incredible content than I could possibly use; I figured I’d be the only one who ever knew such gold even existed.
But, hey, podcasts, ya know?
In a sense, this episode really is a monster made up of spare parts. Don’t be afraid! It won’t hurt you. Much…
