Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult

Question: Even despite the extreme circumstances as presented in this movie, does any producer or director of any live show have any real control over whether a network goes to commercial or not?

Neil Jones

Chosen answer: Yes. Any live show can go to commercial at any time. It's a way to have a check against things going wrong.

Greg Dwyer

Answer: According to the IMDB, the only scene cut out was an extended version of Norberg and Ed's visiting Dreben near the beginning of the film. So you can assume the rest of Simpson's scenes were left in.

Question: When Frank is writing Jane a letter from prison, we see a flashback of his former fiancé running up to a tiny house only for Frank to open the door and knock her off the cliff. Is this a spoof of any particular movie?

Answer: It's a parody of those Romance Novel advertisement commercials. The young beauty searching for her true love. FYI, that particular scene was originally part of the trailer only. It was never part of the film, but fans protested after an early preview of the movie. They demanded it in the film and it was put in.
