He could still potentially just be saying that none of the footage they found was damaged. Every single frame was usable (of the footage that was found). I just know how interviews get misquoted sometimes. Who knows. I do agree that it would be completely weird for him not to include that scene... I mean, why include the boring scenes, but not that one?

This is the one I most wanted to see:

FRANK
(continuing)
You like that?
(to Raymond and Paul)
Hold him tight for me.

Suddenly Frank starts hitting Jeffrey in the face. Dorothy screams at the
car window.

CUT TO BLACK:

161. EXT. DIRT ROAD - DAY

NO SOUND. THEN A MOAN.

JEFFREY'S P.O.V. of rocks on the ground.

He slowly picks up and looks around. The car is gone. He is swollen,
bloody, and covered with lipstick. His pants have been pulled down and
"FUCK YOU" has been written with lipstick on his legs
.

He struggles to his feet and pulls his pants up. He fastens his belt
and begins limping up the dirt road highway.


I have a feeling that Lynch may have purposely cut scenes based on his quote from the KCRW interview:

Lately, those have been found.  Somewhere up in Seattle.  It's incredible.  I'm seeing stuff I thought was gone forever.  And hopefully some of those scenes (some of them aren't worth putting back together) will end up on the new Blu Ray.

In Beautiful Dark, it's mentioned that this particular sequence was never filmed. Kyle MacLachlan begged David Lynch not to film this scene which implies Frank rapes Jeffrey, and David went along with Kyle's request.

No problem. Here's the passage from page 243 of Beautiful Dark:

In Lynch's script, Jeffrey was to wake up lying on the ground after being beaten unconscious by Frank. His pants were to be pulled down and a lipstick "FUCK YOU" scribbled on his leg in the aftermath of a homosexual rape. Kyle MacLachlan pleaded with Lynch to delete the sexual violation details, and after giving the matter some thought, the director agreed. Lynch will sometimes acquiesce to his actors' strongly held opinions, as when he let Anthony Hopkins keep his beloved beard in The Elephant Man and, in Twin Peaks, he abandoned a certain romantic storyline for Agent Cooper that MacLachlan just didn't think was right.

Can anyone confirm whether this Blu Ray release is region-free or Region A?

I've just finished watching the deleted scenes... I loved them, but they're not what I expected... The ones from WAH include a lot of secondary characters and many, many things that have nothing to do with Sailor and Lula, which made them very interesting... Here, as you know, most of them deal with Jeffrey... Jeffrey at school, Jeffrey with his mom and aunt, Jeffrey at the Williams' residence, etc. Considering I didn't exactly know what the deleted stuff was (it's been years since I saw the DVD thing), I expected Frank related stuff, Ben and the fat women with him, drug deals, more about Don, I don't know...

As someone mentioned above it's understandable why they were cut... Don't get me wrong, I *loved* seeing new BV stuff, but I found really great just a handful of the scenes, like the roof one, the dog show or obviously ( :mrgreen: ) the one after the credits... I also wanted to see the bathroom one...

Yesterday, I (finally) got to see the Blue Velvet deleted scenes. In addition to the two you mentioned above, there's one more scene that was previewed in the "deleted scenes photos" that isn't on the Blu-Ray: Jeffrey, his mother, and Aunt Barbara visiting his father in the hospital together. Also, Jeffrey speaking to the doctor (presumably from the same scene).

Also, make sure to watch the Deleted Scenes right through the end (past the credits) to see a very short, but cute, deleted scene in the stairwell of Dorothy's apartment building. :wink:

I watched Blue Velvet (and the deleted scenes) again last night. What can I say? I love this movie.

As I watched the movie again, the "flushing the other ear" scene occurred to me, and I realized that it's actually not so much a standalone extra scene as it is an excised portion of that long sequence in Dorothy's apartment. And what's tricky is, in order for that part of the scene to make any sense, he'd need to show the other part that got removed - where Frank leaves Dorothy on the floor, walks into the bathroom, leaves the ear, and messes with the mirror.

What was interesting when I rewatched the movie is there's a tiny continuity error because of Lynch trimming the part where Frank goes into the bathroom. We see Frank blow out the candle and say "Now it's dark." Then it cuts to Jeffrey's face, watching from the closet. Then we see Frank again, saying "Stay alive" or something like that, and he walks out.

When he says "Now it's dark," notice the hallway in the background. The bathroom door is wide open, with the mirror exposed. When it cuts back to Frank a couple seconds later, you can see the bathroom door is mostly closed and the mirror is now out of view.

Anyone know if UK blu-ray has the deleted scenes? It appears not from the product spec.

It doesn't, but the US release is region free so you can just import that one with no worries :)

I must contradict the previous poster regarding the region of the Blu ray from the US. I bought one (on the basis of that post!) and it WILL NOT play on my Blu_Ray player. It is not region free it is region A - it says so on the back of the case. I have now just ordered one from France which is in my region so it should work. I would strongly recommend other UK users to order their copies from within Europe, not across the pond.

Meantime - if anyone here from the American continent wants to buy my useless (to me!) Blue velvet blu ray it can be had for a knock down price of 10 pounds, post free! Send me a pm if you're interested!

Finally, what have we done in the UK to get such a continual lousy deal with Lynch on DVD/BluRay? No deleted scenes on our BluRay of Blue velvet, Twin Peaks season two released here years afer everyone else, a vastly inferior INLAND EMPIRE release (No "More Things that Happened" extra scenes etc), and finally, a totally botched set of blu ray releases for his other movies. I tell you, its damn expensive being a lynch fan in the UK!

Just to offer a contrary opinion, it plays fine in my Blu Ray player (which is multi-region for DVDs but not for Blu Ray).

How strange... this is the single and only blu-ray that my player will not play, wonder what is going on, see it first gives me a message suggesting that the blu-ray player needs an upgrade then proceeds to play the film fine. But the menu and therefore all other features are inaccessible. I'll report back on what happens with the french Blu-ray...
