What wound up on the cutting room floor
26 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joan Collins hosts this entertaining look at cut scenes from 20th Century Fox films, explaining that many of them were cut because of a film running too long. Most of the scenes were musical numbers, which are, of course, the easiest to cut. There was a long acting scene with Walter Brennan from "We're Not Married" which was cut that was quite funny, and a scene in a music store with Betty Grable in "I Wake Up Screaming" that was cut when her profession was changed from music saleswoman to stenographer. People were confused by the original title of the film, "Hot Spot," and thought they were seeing a musical with Grable. Her singing to sell a song didn't help.

The most interesting cut scenes were those of Bill Bojangles Robinson in "Cafe Metropole." He plays an entertainer at the café. He has two wonderful dance numbers that were probably cut because some audiences weren't ready to accept a black person as anything but a servant.

There's also a test from a film that was never made with Joan Collins and Robert Wagner. It looks like it would have been a true horror.

Other cut scenes included songs in "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Springtime in the Rockies," and "Rose of Washington Square."

I personally would have preferred more outtakes where you could get a glimpse of the star's personality. A Betty Grable dance number, where she kept having to stop, did give us some idea of her and the work process, but more of that would have been great. Also I would have liked more acting scenes.

However, if you're a fan of musicals, you can't beat this.
