The missing day


The missing day wich is depicted in the script occurs just after Art tells the Skip tale to Ray and Ricky.At that point Ray goes back home and instead of the Joepardy scene, he goes to bed and hear strange and various animal noises from down the street, Carol tells him it's just a cat fight or something then the scene
cuts to the next morning.(I guess it was Landru) because the beast
comes back to the Klopek's house, as one of them opens the portal
and let it in.

Rumsfield notices that his lawn is devastated and then
run to Walter's house followed by Ricky,but Walter ignores him because he is very upset that his own lawn is devastated too.They investigate.

This scene was filmed as these lobby cards confirm the script description.

You can notice that Ricky doesn't wear his gloves unlike the day before.


Later Walter who noticed that the devastation came from the Klopeks house goes there to confront them, Reuben comes out and splashes Walter'legs with the water hose, a scene that the other neighbors are observing from a distance (Ray, Mark, Ricky, Art and the postman)
In the script when Reuben notices them, they wave at him with a smile like hypocrites.

Image

Now you can notice that the clothes worn by the characters are identical to the ones they wear when Art comes out at night to get Ray who's watching Jeopardy.Mark joins them and Ricky
spies on them with his gf.(they just added the jackets).

In the movie they make you think only a few minutes pass untill the moment Ray goes back home and Art makes him come back at the window so they can all watch Hans hitting the trash bag.

Check the clothes change there :

Ray = bright blue shirt becomes a navy blue and shorts become pants
Art = shorts become pants and green sweater become blue shirt
Mark = same camo thsirt he wears in the postman scene
Ricky = new clothes too.from black denim jacket to leather jacket and colorful tshirt.

The postman possibly replaced the paperboy characterin the script who's purpose was telling to the others that he always do his delivering job, but he is scared by nothing but the Klopeks.

I wish I could watch these missing hours.

Re: The missing day


Well this is my theory based on the script and these lobby cards
plus the clues in the movie.Why the hell would they all change clothes within two minutes ?

In the book the pic of Walter Mark and Ricky (the black n white one)
is mentioned to be a deleted scene.

In the script this scene ends with the paperboy talking to the group
but I don't have any proof that this part was filmed.Maybe they 've put a postman instead of the paperboy in a sense that they needed a new witness who doesn't live in the street.Plus the Klopeks were living at 903 instead of 669 so the paperboy dialogues becomes irrelevant.

The only conradiction is that in the movie Ray leaves Art and Ricky saying he will watch tv, in the workprint he doesn't mention the tv.
They changed that line just so they can skip this day and make you believe he's going back home to watch Jeopardy with Carol, wich he only does 24 hours later.


I've edited the first post so you can see the images bigger.

Excellent sleuthing there! That makes sense to me. Looks like they had comedian/actor Rich Hall as the Postman.

Re: The missing day


I finally grabbed copy of the script and read through this day. In hindsight I can see why Joe cut the whole segment and went straight to the trash-bang with rain delay. The idea of animals or something wild ripping up sod doesn't fit with the rest of the story. It would have been nice to have had a Walter-Uncle Reuben standoff, but the torn up grass reason doesn't really make sense. I'm glad they did and would totally crowd fund the release of this missing day if it still exists.

Re: The missing day


Oh oh oh. I stand corrected on the mail man. It is not Rich Hall. It is Archie Hahn. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0353869/

Per Trailer From hell: Btw the screen grab above is from a deleted scene–in the background is Archie Hahn as the mailman who never appears in the film.

Which makes sense because Archie Hahn is also in Eerie Indiana and Matinee.

Thanks for the info.

Re: The missing day


In addition to the mailman, there's a character in the script that never made the movie. Not sure if they simply cut him or if they never cast and shot him. It's a kid whose always circling around on a bicycle with a squeaky wheel. They refer to him as the "Barkelow Kid"
