Great show, guys. For what it's worth, the alternate ending of Little Shop Of Horrors has been uploaded to YouTube, albeit in black and white and in three parts. I'm assuming it comes from the recalled DVD.
I watched the Sgt. Pepper's movie on VH1 a couple of years ago, and, yep, it's abysmal. It doesn't help that some of the villains in the movie, namely Aerosmith, are more interesting than the heroes. (not a value judgment on the Bee Gees or Frampton in general, mind you. I like the Bee Gees quite a bit - just in the movie itself, Aerosmith sounds much better).
For what it's worth, a few years ago the magazine Mojo ran a feature article on the making of the movie. The story, from what I remember, was that the film shoot was a disaster from the beginning. George Martin says something to the effect that when he heard Earth Wind and Fire's version of "Got To Get You Into My Life," he realized that every musical act in the film should have done their own interpretation, instead of trying to imitate the Beatles. By that point, he said it was too late.
The article included a great photo spread of the final scene, with a caption listing every celebrity in it. Something remember strongly from the picture is Frankie Valli being in there, wearing a very out-of-place 70's leisure suit with a "what the hell am I doing here?" look on his face.
Another great episode, guys. The Wiz was the first musical I ever saw in a movie theater, and maybe it's because I'm remembering it through a kid's eyes, but I didn't think Ross was that badly cast. You have to remove your modern cynicism that would have Ross playing Dorothy more along the lines of Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns.
