OK, I get it now.  I don't know why I'm so obsessed with knowing how it fits
together, but thanks for putting me straight.

One question I still have is the soundtrack.  It sounds like they used the
Take 2 ending from the film, but added at least a little guitar.  Have you
got the scoop on that?

Or, they threw in those "damaged" frames so that they wouldn't have to go
through the trouble of making a new edit to transition from the Take 1 slide
to the Take 2 ending.  They would have had to do it for six different camera
angles! Ooh, and does the audio switch over before the picture?  I still
have my doubts that Pete played the first few notes after the
'Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhhhh' lying on his back.

By the way, you mentioned having seen the Take 1 ending on the DVD.  Where
is that shown?  During the Stein interview?
