Another no-sex scene, BUT, this is an important scene – missing from the DVD, this is the first 5 minutes of the infamously missing Fred Halsted, the BOY and His Dad scene. Richard Locke (Hank) and Fred Halsted (Gene) have just been hired to work at the Wrecking Corp, and the foreman instinctively feels threatened by Halsted, and a fight ensues. Gene wins, the foreman (Stan Braddock – let’s discuss his t-shirt later) is fired and Gene replaces him – and as Mike Morris (in the only known speaking part on film I know of for Morris) says: “He’s all yours” – setting up the seduction of Morris’s son Jared Benson by Halsted. (Or is it Benson who seduces Halsted?) Now of course the other reason this scene is important is that if you own the DVD version, which jumps from The Gardener and the Rug Man scene which takes place as Locke and Halsted just arrive in El Paso – to the Orgy Finale. If you didn’t know the pair were now working at the Wrecking Corp., you’d be scratching your head wondering why they are suddenly having orgies in buildings that keep getting torn down, right? Right? You were paying attention to the developing plot, right?
“There ain’t a horse that can’t be rode, nor a cowboy that can’t be thowed.” (don’t ya love Richard Locke?)
