Comments Off

Did you pick up your Almost Famous – Untitled – The Bootleg Cut Blu-ray yet from Best Buy? If you so, you might be wondering if the very cool easter eggs from the DVD have been carried over? The answer is a resounding yes! Here’s the details:

  • #1 – From the “Special Features” menu,  highlight the microphone that marks Crowe’s audio introduction to “Love Comes and Goes,” and press left to uncover a blue vinyl record icon. Press enter to access the 5-minute “Leslie” scene that doesn’t appear in either cut of the film. Crowe reveals in his 1-minute intro for the scene that it was an homage to Truffaut’s Stolen Kisses.
  • #2 – From the “Special Features” menu, highlight “Stairway” and press right to uncover a yellow vinyl record icon. Press enter to access the very first take of the first shot of Philip Seymour Hoffman playing Lester Bangs, preceded by a 1-½ minute introduction in which Crowe explains why this particular take is so special, yet so haunting,
  • #3 – From the “Special Features” menu, highlight “Script” and press right to uncover a red vinyl record icon. Press enter for 9 minutes of multiple takes of a scene between Penny Lane and William on the tour bus, with a 1-minute intro in which Crowe explains how much of a perfectionist he can be during filming.
