50 minutes of deleted scenes from the director 's classic 1986 film Blue Velvet, were exhumed a couple of years ago in almost perfect condition. Now they have surfaced online.

The committed Lynch aficionado's may have already viewed this back when the 25th anniversary Blu-ray was released; however Indiewire have explained that:

All of this material makes up scenes which Lynch had to cull from his 3 1/2 to 4-hour rough cut, to the contractually obligated 2-hour version he handed in to producer .

If you were not lucky (or geeky) enough to have viewed the compilation originally, then watch what Indiewire describes as 'extra character moments, and one sequence involving and a flaming nipple' right here, right now:


Also, we thought you'd enjoy this additional piece of ephemera straight from the archive, which is a copy of the original Blue Velvet screenplay:

Whilst the director is busy adding even more strings to his genius bow, including: coffee making, music and painting, Indiewire have confirmed that 'the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts are planning a retrospective' of his work. Is there anything this man can't do?

You can see more gems of this ilk over at Cinephilia.

What do you make of the deleted scenes?
