a BLADE RUNNER inspired sketch
One early version of the Blade Runner script had Zhora's exotic dance in
the Taffey Lewis Snake Pit Bar as a major musical set piece, lasting minutes. However, the costly extensive scene was ruled out in favor of Deckard's (Harrison Ford) incredulous but subtle reaction and the off camera performance was left the the viewer's imaination. The snake in the movie was actually actress, Joanna Cassidy's own pet snake.
