A previously unreleased scene from the comedy classic Planes, trains and cars has been released in anticipation of the film’s upcoming 35th anniversary.
In the clip, Del Griffith (John Candy) and Neal Page (Steve Martin) are sitting together on a packed flight. Del begins offering unwanted parts of Neal’s meal to the third man in line (veteran actor Bill Erwin). All Neal wants to hang on to is his brownie, that is, until a neighbor’s hair ruins the desert. Naturally, Neal is annoyed by the situation, but Del remains optimistic regardless.
Watch the newly revealed scene below.
Originally published on Nov. 25, 1987, Planes, trains and cars depicted the unlikely pairing of uptight ad executive Neal and affable shower curtain salesman Del as they try to get from New York to Chicago in time for Thanksgiving. The film was written and directed by John Hughesbecame a box office hit and remains a holiday classic more than three decades after its release.
Although the film clocked in at just over 90 minutes, an original cut was made more than three hours in length. Much of the abandoned footage will be included on the film’s upcoming 4K Ultra HD 35th Anniversary release.
In addition to the original version, the package includes a bonus “Lost Luggage” Blu-ray Disc featuring over an hour of never-before-seen footage. A look behind the making of Planes, trains and cars and the documentary in two parts John Hughes: Life moves pretty fast will also be included.
