Trivia

The film was originally recorded in mono. When 20th Century-Fox finally decided to release it to home video in 1990, the songs in the film were re-dubbed using the stereo versions from the soundtrack release (a session singer was used in the studio version for Rocky's vocals; Trevor White re-dubbed them for the film). Rocky's vocals are different on "Rose Tint My World," and other subtle differences are noticeable to fans who have seen the theatrical release repeatedly, especially because the words didn't match to the mouths of the actors. The original English mono sound was used as an option for the 2000 DVD release (with Trevor White as the voice of Rocky Horror on all songs), along with an English 5.1 Surround mix (using the mono sound and White's vocals) and a commentary track by Richard O'Brien and Patricia Quinn.

Let's do The Time Warp Again!
17 August 1999 | by (chandler, az) – See all my reviews

Oh, come on admit it: we all love this movie and have gone to see it in the theatre. I have only seen it live once, but it was something that I won't soon forget. I still love watching it at home and practice the singing! Tim Curry, Susan and Barry are all hilarious, and the songs will be forever imbedded into your brain. "Damn it Janet, I love you."
