Racy scene in Purple Rain..

I haven't seen Purple Rain in a while, and i came across it this morning on Cable. The movie was at the scene where Prince is finishing singing "the Beautiful Ones". He comes off the stage triumphant, and Billie says "what's this one song shit"...
Then Prince hooks up with Apollonia. He says, lets go back to your place, and she says, we cant..
So they go to "The Kid's" basement apartment. Prince plays her a tape in which a girl is crying/coming..?...
He starts caressing Apollonia...reaching between her legs...
It was actually more graphic than I remember it. Apollonia's physical response seems genuine.
just sayin.

It's re-airing now, and the original script had a scene in it that was a lot racier than what actually came out.

If it had, it would've definitely got an X rating.

Yeah, curse that 80s' rating system! They didn't even have clothes off. I think Purple Rain got its R rating from the Lake Minnetonka scene and language. If they can show Apollonia naked outside then they could've displayed the same concept in the bedroom. More or so Prince's body!

Yeah, the When Doves Cry montage was just a small taste of deleted scenes that's never been officially released. That basement love scene was ends different from on the official film. If u have the original standard DVD version and the 20th anniversary special edition DVD, there r several pictures on those various memu opinions that gives u a preview of those deleted scenes along with the movie theatrical trailer (of course).

Considering that the two did not actually go "all the way" until their private moment in the woods (referencing the deleted scenes), I guess this scene resembles The Kid's restraint as he did not know if he loved or trusted her. In the screenplay, I believe Appolonia wanted him to make love to her but he held back and he did not succumb until she opened her heart to him (something about giving him a flower after their spat about him not helping her and forgiving him about it). There is a lot that the finished film did not explain or hint at.

PRINCE
Let's ride.


(56) EXT. HIGHWAY -- DAWN

AERIAL SHOT
Prince and Vanity on his motorcycle
whipping down the highway. The DAWN
LIGHT breaks over the horizon.


(57) EXT. ANOTHER HIGHWAY -- DAWN

A SERIES OF SHOTS
Streaking down a two-lane blacktop
obviously exhilarated by the velocity of
their ride. The landscape becomes lush,
the trees a riot of autumn splendor.


(58) EXT. COUNTRY ROAD -- DAWN

ANOTHER ANGLE
as Prince and Vanity whip up to the top
of a small hill, skid to a stop. He
scans the area quickly, gets his
bearings. He pops the clutch, skids off
to the valley below.


(59) EXT. WOODS AND STREAM -- DAWN

PRINCE AND VANITY ride cautiously
through a series of hiking paths, then
twist down a small embankment. A STREAM
flows before them. They climb off the
bike, look around quietly--

VANITY
God, this is beautiful. It
reminds me of where I grew up.
My father used to ...

He waits for an answer, it's not
forthcoming--

PRINCE
Your father used to what...?

VANITY
Nothing...it's just...
(changes subject)
You must like places like
this.

He goes to the stream, balances on
several rocks, moves to the other side.
The stream flows between them--

VANITY
So, have you reconsidered my
proposal?

PRINCE
What...?

VANITY
What we talked about last
time.

PRINCE
You can't be serious.

She starts a little dance step, climaxes
it with spins and twirls--

VANITY
Oh, come on -- you know you
really want to. You've been
waiting for this opportunity
...all...your...life...

He can't help laughing -- she freezes,
looks at him coldly--

PRINCE
I'm sorry -- excuse me.

VANITY
God -- so why do you come
around? You don't want to
help me, not that you have to.
You don't want to sleep with
me, not that you have to do
that either. So why am I
here?

He smiles, walks off--

VANITY
There's a lot of things you
don't know about me. You'd be
surprised how many things I
could do.

He disappears around some trees--

VANITY
Take me home immediately! I
want to go home. I can't
stand this! I can't take this
anymore! Prince!

PRINCE moves through the trees smiling,
studying nature--

VANITY(O.S.)
I don't need this! I was
doing alright before I met
you. Motherfucker, you need a
haircut!

He comes to a tree, leans against it
contentedly, studies the foliage.

VANITY paces back and forth frantically
along the stream--

VANITY
(to herself)
I don't get this.
(yells)
Prince! Who do you think you
are?! You don't care. You
don't care about anything! I
never wanted you to help me
anyway!

PRINCE rests by the tree, observes TWO
HIKERS walking down the path toward him-
-

VANITY (0.S.)
You think you're a good
musician?! You're nothing!
Morris is better. I never
wanted to make it with you
anyway.

The Hikers pass him startled--

PRINCE
Good morning.

VANITY
PRINCE, I HATE YOU!

HIKERS
Good morning, sir.

And they walk down the path, disappear around the bend.
Just then--



VANITY is standing by his side, a
wildflower in her hands--

VANITY
(softly)
I'm sorry. I shouldn't have
said those things. Will you
forgive me?

PRINCE
(softly)
Yes.

He takes the flower, slips it into his
jacket, kisses her forehead.





(60) EXT. GLADE AND BARN -- DAWN

as they ride down a leaf-strewn path and
pull to a stop near an old, weathered,
dilapidated BARN. It stands laarge and
silent like a painting. A low THUNDER
rolls across the land...



(61) INT. BARN -- DAWN

DAWN LIGHT burns through the wooden
slats.. STEAM rises from the wet hay
scattered throughout. The air is thick
and damp. It begins to RAIN.

Vanity stands in the middle of the barn,
gazing at the storm. Beads of
perspiration glisten on her forehead.
She turns slowly, watches as Prince
retrieves old blankets from a nearby
stall. Their eyes search one another
out, their breathing becomes short,
expectant. She hesitates a moment, then
pulls off her blouse, discards it to the
moist, dusty floor.



insert from Raspberry Beret: Built like she was, she had the nerve 2 ask me
If I planned 2 do her any harm
So looka here now, I put her on the back of my bike
Where we go? (Down by) ...Old Man Johnson's farm
So looka here now, overcast days never turned me on
But somethin’ ‘bout the clouds and her mixed
She-e-e-e wasn't 2 bright, but I could tell when she kissed me
She knew how 2 get her kicks

Rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
And the horses wonder who U are
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees
U feel like a movie star
They say the first time ain't the greatest
But I'll tell ya, if I had the chance 2 do it all again, oh


(62) INT. BARN -- DAY



ANOTHER ANGLE
RAIN patters srtongly against the barn.
A deep THUNDER rolls. She's on top of
him, moving deliciously, her body
glowing in the purple, dawn light.
Moist, purple water shadows streak and
course her skin as she moves slowly,
then deliberately against him. He
watches her avidly, his hands firmly on
her thighs, and thrusts into her again
and again...and again.





(62A) EXT. BARN -- DAY

Leaves scatter as the bike whips thru
the wet path.


(63) EXT. STREETS, VANITY'S MOTEL -- MORNING

The STREETS glisten with the rain.
Prince and Vanity pull up in front of
her motel. She hugs him fiercely, steps
off the bike, her face alive and fresh
as a flower. His eyes sparkle--

PRINCE
See you later?

VANITY
When?

PRINCE
Why?

VANITY
'Cause I have to do something
first.

PRINCE
What?

VANITY
(coyly)
A secret...

PRINCE
Tell me.

VANITY
No.

PRINCE
Okay, come by -- eight
o'clock.

He kicks the bike into gear -- she
touches his jacket longingly--

VANITY
Bye...

He blasts off. She watches him a
moment, her eyes glowing. She heads to
her motel, then stops short -- a single
CARNATION lies oon the sidewalk. She
looks around quickly, almost expecting
someone to claim it. But no one's
around, so she picks it up, goes inside.

(41) EXT. ALLEYWAY #2, REAR CLUB -- NIGHT

Vanity leans against a brick wall,
hiding in the shadows. Suddenly
FOOTSTEPS approach. Prince appears,
gets on his Motorcycle--

VANITY
Hey...

He doesn't look up--

PRINCE
We have to go to your place.

VANITY
What for?

PRINCE
I want to show you something.

She's embarrassed by her apartment--

VANITY
No...no, we can't.

PRINCE
Why -- is there someone there?

VANITY
Why do you always think
there's somebody else?

He averts his eyes -- kick STARTS his
bike--

PRINCE
Let's go.


VANITY
(Getting on)
Yeah -- but we're not going to
my place.

He remains silent, snaps the bike into
gear, blasts down the ally into the
street.


(42) PRINCE'S HOUSE AND STREET -- NIGHT

Prince and Vanity whip down a
residential street. As he approaches
his house he slows, moves past it
quietly.

He makes a deft U-turn, crosses his
house again -- seems to be listening
intently...

After a moment, he cuts down a narrow
path, turns up a back alley. He rides
to a wooden gate, detaches a hidden
lever. The wood slats rotate like a
garage door -- Prince coaxes his bike
through.

BACKYARD

Vanity's mesmerized. They ride down a
narrow sidewalk, cut through a garden,
and emerge from the back of a garage.
He leans his bike against it--

VANITY
That was a grand entrance.
Where am I?

He silences her with a look, moves
quickly across the grass, comes to a
window. He stands on a pipe, looks in--


(43) PRINCE'S POV -- INT. LIVING ROOM -- NIGHT

His Mother and Father in the living
room. His Mother is sprawled out on the
sofa, obviously drunk, her dress hiked
along her thighs. Her head rests in his
Father's lap.


(44) EXT. BACKYARD -- NIGHT

Prince hops from the pipe, leans coolly
against the house. Intrigued. Vanity
looks in--


(45) VANITY'S POV -- INT. LIVING ROOM -- NIGHT

The mother and father kissing
tentatively, then violently, finally
pulling away. The Mother seems to be
taunting the Father, coaxing him into a
trap. He kisses her mouth lustily --
she pulls back snarling--.




(46) EXT. BACKYARD -- NIGHT

Vanity's scared -- tries to be cool--

VANITY
So -- friends of yours?

PRINCE
Yeah -- the freak show.

He walks off. She jumps off the pipe,
follows.


SIDE OF HOUSE

as they emerge around the corner.
Prince squats by a basement window,
adjusts an old coal chute, then slides
down it--

VANITY
Hey...

PRINCE (O.S.)
C'mon.

She hesitates a moment, then slides down
too.


(47) INT. BASEMENT, PRINCE'S HOME -- NIGHT

He turns on a LIGHT, disappears into an
ADJOINING ROOM. Vanity looks around
amazed. She stands in a small ANTE-
CHAMBER whose walls are covered with
thicks pads and foam.

Colorful MOBILES hang suspended from the
ceilings -- various INSTRUMENTS lie
about: a drumset, an electric guitar,
and a small upright piano. A stereo and
cassette player. are perched on a shelf,
and two speakers are recessed into the
walls. The entire room looks hand-
built, the wood carefully painted, or
stained.

She peers through the doorway into the
adjoining room. BLUE MOONLIGHT filters
in through the casement windows.
Various MURALS are painted on the walls,
MOBILES are suspended from the ceiling.
A bed sits in the middle of the floor, a
vanity table and mirror nearby.

She stands idly a mement, then moves
around the antechamber. Various
KNICKNACKS catch her attention. Small
wind-up TOYS lie about: a soldier, a
bear banging on a drum, a tractor and
car. A small MUSIC BOX sits on a shelf.
She turns the handle, a little TUNE
fills the room...





A cassette sits in the player. She
snaps it shut, hits the play button. A
DRUM BEAT fills the room, followed by a
WOMAN'S VOICE, seemingly speaking in a
foreign tongue. The combination is
hypnotic and sensual -- she finds
herself drawn in ...

Suddenly Prince grabs her by the waist,
lets out a SHRIEK. She draws a out
breath, jumps--

VANITY
If you think you scared me,
you didn't.

PRINCE
Oh, yeah ...

He puts his index finger directly in
front of her nose, moves it back and
forth hypnotically. She follows it
earnestly with her eyes. Suddenly, he
pulls his hand away, stretches it to the
ceiling like an escaping bird. They
both smile, lock eyes. Passion rings in
their veins...

The Woman's VOICE begins to moan deeply,
pleasurably--

VANITY
Who's the lucky girl? Sounds
like she was having a good
time.

PRINCE
She's crying -- it's
backwards. It makes me sad
when I hear it. It sorta
sounds like she's laughing,
doesn't it?

VANITY
So what did you do to her? Do
you always treat your women
like that?

PRINCE
I don't have anybody right
now.

Heat floods into her womb like soft fire-
-



VANITY
You look pretty...

She touches his chest delicately, fluffs
up his hair--


VANITY
King Kong?

PRINCE
Stop.

She hesitates -- but he reaches out
tentatively, touches her breast--

VANITY
No.

But their mutual desire is too strong.
Their lips seek one another out timidly,
almost deferentially...then fervently.

DISSOLVE TO:GOD the LOVE THEME(instrumental)


(48) INT. BEDROOM -- LATER -- NIGHT

Vanity sits at the foot of the bed,
Prince stands before her. Her dress is
hiked along her thighs, her stockings
attached to garters. Their hands search
delicately across the contours of their
bodies, drawing quick breaths from their
lips. They kiss one another ardently,
then quickly, like sparrows pecking
seed. She goes to remove her dress, but
Prince stays her with a gesture, moving
his hands along her thighs, touching
delicately that spot between her legs.
A low, whispery moan escapes from her
lips.

Vanity lies back, drawing Prince toward
her. His lips move across her mouth,
her neck, her breasts. She moans
softly, pulls her dress above her
thighs, goes to remove it. Once again
he stops her, slowly turns her onto her
stomach.

She stands.on her knees, her head
resting on a pillow. His hands move up
along the back of her thighs, past the
garters to her panties. He tugs at them
gently, then rubs his hand firmly
between her legs. She moans suddenly,
the shudder moving through her like a
whirlwind ...

DISSOLVE TO:


(49) INT. BEDROOM -- LATER -- NIGHT

MOONLIGHT glows throuch the casement
windows. MOBILES stir gently in the
night breeze.

Prince and Vanity are asleep. He rests
on his side, his hands gently surporting
his face. She lies behind him, one leg
dangling off the bed, one shoe discarded
on the floor

Suddenly a distant MOAN...QUICK
FOOTSTEPS -- A DOOR SLAMS. Vanity SNAPS
awake! Fear sweeps her like a shadow
from a passing cloud. She listens
intently, then--

-- Another DOOR SLAM, QUICK FOOTSTEPS,
and Prince's Mother
CRYING in the dark--

MOTHER
(o.s.)
(upstairs)
Please!

A bottle CRASHES to the floor. Then
silence...

...deep silence like snow in the room...

Vanity's racked with fear. She sits up
slowly, her eyes searching out Prince --
he's sleeping...

Suddenly more FOOTSTEPS, a DOOR SLAMS and the
Father's CRY--

FATHER
(o.s.)
No!!

WHACK! Something heavy CRASHES to the
floor...

Vanity rises from the bed in a panic!
She smoothes down her dress, searches
for her other shoe. She shoots another
look to Prince, but he sleeps
peacefully. Casting a glance upstairs,
she climbs throuch the casement window,
disappears into the night.

PRINCE is resting on his side, his eyes
opened.[/quote]

the 1st time the Kid & Appolonia were together God the Love Theme was the background music.

for the deleted Barn scene what song do you think would have been used. This scene was supposed to be a bit more explicit.

My vote is If the Kid Can't Make U Come

My vote would be the "Love Theme" from Michel Colombier. Anyone else notice that this movie has two "love themes"?

I like the scene...However when I showed all of my kids the movie through the years it was when I was dancing around in front of the TV, creating a distraction.

All I heard was, "Move Mom." cool
