WB cut a scene from their otherwise perfect Monogram movie FALL GUY. It occurs at minute 18 when the victim is having coffee trying to sober up from the effects of a drugging. With him is his girl and Robert Armstrong. He describes stumbling around and the flashback shows him break the window of a phone booth then fall down passed out. the entire flashback is missing.
