happy anniversary
The Motorcyclist and the Harvard Man

Next week, the day after Christmas in fact, will be the 30th anniversary of the release of the film I've probably yapped about most here - Joe Gage's El Paso Wrecking Corp. Often the "discussion" has been about the missing footage from the scene subtitled Fred Halsted, the Boy and His Dad, with Mike Morris. But folks, I've been holding out on you! There's another scene with missing footage, even harder to come by, that few of us who hadn't seen it in the theatres have ever seen, and seems to ahve only made it onto video tape in the nearly impossible to come by TMX (topman video-x) early 1980's release. But of course, for now anyway, I'm going to show you the EDITED SCENE. But the un-edited scene is a great watersports scene, and we'll just have to come back to that at another time, perhaps after the new year. Just remember, it's one of those dark night scenes, so turn off the lights, and try to watch in "full screen" to really get the full effect of this fantasy sequence between Keith Anthoni and Ken Brown.
