Trivia Countown! Six Days to Movies for Grownups on Turner Classic Movies

I’m counting down the days until May 15, the night I get to introduce four great Movies for Grownups with Robert Osborne on TCM. [1] Here’s today’s trivia bit about one of the movies we’re showing:

Most film fans know that Gregory Peck’s spooky dream sequence in Alfred Hitchcock [3]‘s Spellbound was designed by the surreal artist Salvador Dali [4]. It’s unforgettable as-is, but costar Ingrid Bergman later said the scene was originally planned to run for 20 minutes. Production stills show one excised segment in which the stars dance beneath a flock of grand pianos, hung from the ceiling.
