Since when do bands play only one or two songs at a packed club?

If Billy wanted something "commercial, something that would work every night" wouldn't it make more sense for him to let Dez's group go?

I definitely didn't want to be a mountainair or whatever it was that they were singing about!

Puzzles me to this day.

if Apollonia was so in love with the Kid,why did she agree to join a group that could possibly replace The Kid and his band at First Avenue?

I never got why appollonia never let prince come to her place, why she was so secretive bout where she lived

Her character was from New Orleans and she arrived in town with no where to stay, got out of paying the cab driver. She got a motel room she was living in while trying to get famous.

Why would a woman want to bring a man to a dump? lol

lol true, that hotel room was cheesy remember the conversation Morris was having with Jeromewhere they both assumed she was probably used to a classy life?Weird because in the original script the Kid did end up coming to her place(prior to the Barn scene) and Morris also found out where she lived because he delivered flowers

Seriously though, the band just starting to play "Purple Rain" without ever having rehearsed it together is the biggest plot hole in it. I find it hard to believe that they actually left it in the script and even filmed it that way.

They could have just added a short scene in the film where Prince tells them before the gig that they're going to do it or something like that.

What I also want to know was how can Prince play a sensual lover in PR, taking the lead & feeling her up in a way every woman imagines how it would be like with Prince - then turn into a pansy boy lover in UTCM?

I always wondered who did Apollonia's/A6's make up?

And how to do my eye make up like Apple's. Seriously.

I love a Man who:
Wears More Make Up Than Me.
Wears Four Inch Stilleto Boots.
Changes His Name To An Unpronouncable Symbol.
Who Changes His Name Back From An Unpronouncable Symbol.
Oh And Most Importantly, Who Is Sexy Little Drop Of Butterscotch

wouldn't your question be in the thread 'Questions you always had about the movie Under the Cherry Moon' since UTCM wasn't made yet in 1984? wink

Probably because of time contraints, Al Magnoli cut the scene along with the other footage that led to it.

To this day I still don´t get the ventriloquist scene with that puppet. When I asked about this some orgers posted a picture of that old Anthony Hopkins movie where he played a crazy, psychotic ventriloquist but I doubt that the scene in Purple Rain was a subtle hint to that movie.

Does Prince have some hidden ventriloquist talents that we don´t know about?

It'a actually based on the Shining.

The puppet was Danny's finger. But Prince being a gemini is not only Danny, but also Jack. Apollonia is the rotting woman in the shower, Morris is Scatman Crothers (Prince's boot is the axe to the chest), Wendy is Wendy and with Lisa they make the twins, and Purple Rain (or possibly Wendy's reversed period, I am not sure yet) is the blood from the elevator

in the movie script during Computer Blue, Wendy was the Kids twin, it was described as looking like the Kid was going down on himself

And his mother saying he looked so much like her, darkening the mole on his face like it was on hers ((the incestuous undercurrent scene) after she ran into his room to get away from his father)

Nobody in the whole movie smoked any weed..at all? Morris? The Time? GTFOOHWTBS.

Come on now..Lisa looked and acts high as fuck 24-7.

and how did they rehearse Computer Blue choreography? When did they? So Prince told Wendy that her job in the breakdown would to insinuate him getting head...they discussed all of this yes? and why was Kim Upsher upset watching it? she went with Prince before didnt she? she knew he was a frake (slang for freak).
