Ha, good match at a distance. Where are they now?

If you carry the egg basket do not dance.

Do good, then throw it into the sea.

You can always tell, in Purple Rain, if it's the double or Prince riding the motorcycle: Prince's bike was smaller and had no clutch.

I've always wondered: since it's illegal to ride a motorbike without a helmet, how can it be legal to do it in order to shoot a movie??? eek eek eek

Is there a law allowing it or what?

"Even though Minnesota does not have a universal helmet law, motorcyclists who wear them may prevent a life-threatening head injury."

Oh, I just checked and the US are extremely... liberal with helmets eek

I thought it was like Europe.

Regardless, I'm pretty sure that some action films are filmed in California (where helmets are compulsory for all today) or Europe where the hero (or his stuntman) rides a bike without a helmet.

I wonder how they manage to get around the law. Even a stuntman can kill himself.

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

^^^^ Magnoli cut that scene, because it was evident to him that Prince was extremely uncomfortable doing it. Same with the shower scene. He said Appollonia was going "all out" for the scene and he was clearly uncomfortable. I actually think that is very sweet.

Now that's interesting. I've never heard that before. I know Prince's bike was a Honda CM400. That's one tiny-ass motorcycle--I saw one in a parking lot last summer. I'm 5'9" and I'd look like I was riding a tricycle on that thing.

So if Prince's bike was a 400, what was the stunt-double riding? 450, 500 maybe? It couldn't be too much bigger than that, I don't think. The 600 cc is pretty big and the 750 is a monster. I know, I rode my husband's a couple times and dropped the blasted thing in a parking lot. loser

I believe it was the bedroom scene, which was in the movie. They had done a few "versions" of that scene - a couple that would not pass the "R" rating. Appollonia stated she had to go and take a cold shower after those scenes smile Prince may not have dated her, but he certainly got to see and touch the "goods" biggrin

Appollonia stated she had to go and take a cold shower after those scenes smile Prince may not have dated her, but he certainly got to see and touch the "goods" biggrin

From "Let's Go Crazy" by Alan Light - discussing the bedroom scene: "The scene was shot 3 different ways, for three possible MPAA ratings, they went with the most daring, the R-rated version." So, the scene we see in the film was the most "racey" of the 3 filmed.

*

From the book regarding the sex scenes in the barn and shower: Magnoli confirms a long-running rumor that there was another sex scene between Prince and Apollonia, shot in a barn and involving a shower of almost literal "purple rain". Though he's been cagey about this in the past and says that it was never included in any cut of the film, shots from this scene actually appear in the Purple Rain trailer andin the When Doves Cry video. "That scene was shot in the first week", says Ken Robinson. "We looked at the dailies, and she was playing it a little bigger than she was supposed to, and you could see the awkwardness, the uncomfortableness on his face. When we saw that, the scene was immediately gone."

I remember in January 1984,I saw a news blurb that said that Purple Rain was in danger of getting an X rating eek they had to edit some stuff out.I also recall a lady who auditoned for the Apollonia role saying "There is stuff in that script that I wouldn't even let my own boyfriend do to me",lol.

When Kid takes Vanity, but she really takes him, then tells him to never do that to her again. They probably never got around to filming that, especially with Apollonia.
