Watch the never-before-seen clip “Planes, trains and automobiles”
A never-before-seen scene from the comedy classic Planes, trains and automobiles was released in anticipation of the film’s 35th anniversary.
In the clip, Del Griffith (John Candy) and Neal Page (Steve Martin) sit together on a crowded flight. Del begins offering unwanted portions of Neal’s meal to the third man in their rank (veteran actor Bill Erwin). The only thing Neal wants to hold 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 discovered scene below.
Originally published on November 25, 1987, Planes, trains and automobiles chronicled the unlikely pairing of uptight advertising executive Neal and affable shower curtain salesman Del as they attempt to get from New York to Chicago in time for Thanksgiving. The film, written and directed by John Hughes, became a box office hit and remains a holiday classic more than three decades after its release.
Although the film was just over 90 minutes long, an original cut was over three hours long. Much of the dropped footage will be included in the upcoming 4K Ultra HD 35th Anniversary movie release.
Along with the original release, the package includes a bonus “Lost Luggage” Blu-ray disc, containing over an hour of never-before-seen footage. A look behind the making of Planes, trains and automobiles and the two-part documentary John Hughes: Life goes fast enough will also be included.
The new reissue of Planes, trains and automobiles arrives November 22.
