Jackie Skarvellis, who stars in The Body Beneath (and also Milligan's The Rats are Coming! The Werewolves are Here!), will be present at the screening, answering audience questions.
Wow. Wish I could get there to see this. I hope Jackie will be contributing to the Nightbirds DVD extras on The Body Beneath.
Still can't quite believe the BFI showing a Milligan film, or Nicolas Winding Refn's involvement either Managed to get time off work to go on Thursday, should be good. Seen Body Beneath (the old Something Weird) , liked it a lot, remembered the final shot being pretty affecting. High time I got back into Andy's films..was thinking of doing a documentary of some sort years ago before the Industry my arse stuff came up.
Apparently a cut print was shown.
The lovemaking scene, which is also absent from the original U.S. video release.
From the Flipside Facebook page:
'...this footage wasn't in the version we screened. But maybe it will make it on to the Flipside Milligan DVD...'
Wow - BFI are all over Milligan at the moment! I wonder what he would have made of it were he still alive?
Deep End on Film4 this weekend btw, just noticed.
That's a possibility. I read recently that World Video Pictures obtained the print from Milligan himself, with said scene already missing, rather than it having been removed by the video company, as I had heretofore assumed.
However, Milligan concocted the trailer, which refers to the missing scene, leading one to suspect that the scene was present in (at least some) theatrical showings.
