Today, buying or renting a DVD is as much about checking out deleted scenes as it is about watching the film itself. But, say, get this! There are some scenes deleted from films that don't even make the Deleted Scenes feature on DVDs. We here at CRACKED got our hands on some of these scenes...
FIELD OF DREAMS
Inspired by a mysterious voice that no one else can hear, Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) the son of a former minor league baseball player and a one-time high school stud himself, plows over his Iowa cornfield and builds a baseball diamond in its place. The neighbors are embarrassed and the bank lenders are concerned, but Ray's wife Annie (Amy Madigan) has stood by him. In this deleted deleted scene, which occurs early in the movie, Ray has nearly finished building his masterpiece.
Sunset. RAY and ANNIE stand in the dugout of their magic baseball field.
Look at that, Annie.
Isn't it beautiful?
It is. It's crazy and it's
stupid, but it's beautiful.
I just know that the voice
is leading me to something good.
I don't know what, but something
good will come of this.
TERRY MANN approaches to congratulate RAY. All three of them sit down and watch the field.
You did good, Ray.
RAY kisses ANNIE on the forehead.
I guess there's just one
last thing, and it's done.
Sweeping orchestral music begins. Shot of Ray walking down the porch steps toward the field. Cut to Ray, from behind, on one knee hammering a sign into the grassy area near home plate.
Orchestra music builds. Ray stands, takes a few steps back, proud. We see a sign: "WHITES ONLY- NO COLOREDS ALLOWED" and cut to TERRY's horrified, betrayed reaction.
Orchestra music reaches crescendo as camera pans out, leading to an aerial view of the field. Stadium lights turn on... the Field of Dreams is alive.
REASON FOR DELETION
Producers felt Ray's latent racism could alienate some audience members.
