This thrilled me as much as the Prometheus spoilers didn't.



Wonderful stuff. Truly fantastic.

Dr. Herbert Schneer, Senior Vice-President of the Tyrell Corporation.

Any ideas who the actor is?

Any more background info, Ridleyville?

Thanks for sharing it with us, mate.

I am going to post the questions that he answers but i only have the first name of the actor which is Ben.

This sequence was one of two filmed for a Vidphone sequence that was included in a script update i have which was as late as May 1981. dare i say that the other is Pris and i also have that.

This is the script used for the Vidphone sequence from Deckards Spinner (Actually it's the ground car, my mistake) and Dr Schlecht. It makes more sense if you follow the script and look at the vid.

I am cleaning up Pris sequence at the moment. it is deliberatly out of focus as per the script

The scene is set after Sabastians apartment and the vidphone is in Deckards ground car and not the Spinner as i had first said.

Deckard punches a number of vid-phone. Waits.

On the VIDPHONE screen (not the Esper Screen) Dr. Schlecht
suddenly appears, answering the call.

DR. SCHLECHT
Guten Abend.

DECKARD
Dr. Hermann Schlecht..

DR. SCHLECHT
Ja.

Deckard has shoved his badge in front of the lens.

Schlecht squints, inspecting the badge that must be appearing
on his vid screen.

DECKARD
You are Senior Vice President
of the Tyrell Corporation.

Dr. Schlecht nods.

DECKARD
You have dix huit clearance at
Tyrell. Right ?

DR. SCHLECHT.
Yes.

DECKARD
How many other employees have the
same clearance.

DR. SCHLECHT
Four, including Dr. Tyrell and
myself.

DECKARD
The others ?

SCHLECHT
Dr. Chew and J.F. Sebastian

DECKARD
Sebastian ?

SCHLECHT
Yes. J.F. Sebastian.

DECKARD
I want you to authorise access to
your personnel files. Put it on
Esper.

SCHLECHT
Now ? Do you know what time it is ?

DECKARD
J.F. Sebastian employment and
personal information.

SCHLECHT
Punch in your Esper code please.

Deckard punches Schlecht out and punches in Esper.

DECKARD
Coming in. Night Doc.


OMIT 89B

OMIT 89C

INT. DECKARD'S CAR 89CC

The Esper screen reveals a single face SEBASTIAN.

Information and data blare out.

ESPER
J.F. Sebastian. AMAPT 46751.
Designer, Age 27, hobbies
Grand Master Chess Player..
Clearance.....

Deckard punches the telephone number on the vid phone.

On the vid-phone a strange out of focus face looks startled.
It's Pris.

DECKARD
Hi.... J.F. there ?

PRIS
Who's this ?

DECKARD
An old friend of his.

Pris looks for a moment then puts down the phone.

DECKARD
That's no way to treat a friend.

As the vid phone goes blank one of the dwarfs jumps on
to the hood of Deckard's car.

Deckard starts up the car, screetches forward and the dwarf
falls off onto the street.

Fantastic find. Thanks for putting up the video and the corresponding script.

The sequence makes more sense now, I don't see why they didn't include it in the first place.

Thank you Geoff for sharing this very interesting scene and info related to it.

The actor who portrays Dr. Schlecht looks very close to how Bryant was drawn in Sherman Labby's storyboards...

Fred

Just noticed Haskell Wexler's name on the clapperboard.

Amazing new footage! It's almost too bad that the scene didn't play out as written in the script.

I would almost be willing to bet money that the actor is Steve Plytas. I recognized him immediately from a favorite episode of "Fawlty Towers". He plays the drunken chef Kurt in "Gourmet Night".

Does look like him for sure but it is not him. Before the clapperboard the director says " ok Ben " He does not mention his surname though.

I will double check the script but i thought the questions did more or less tally up. Will have another look.

Ben is indeed the actor's name--his full name is Ben Astar. If you check his IMDB profile he is listed as an uncredited performer as Abu Ben Hassan among other things.

I stumbled across the actor tonight in another role as the Moldavian Prime Minister in the very first episode of the 1966 Batman TV series. (pretty sure I got it right this time lol)
