John Travolta wasn't the only one puzzled by Sly's idea for "Satan's Alley". On VH1's "I Love The 80s Strikes Back", Sly's brother Frank Stallone recalled seeing copies of books with devils in them and "wondered what it had to do with 'Saturday Night Fever'". Finola Hughes was confused as well and she "was in it for six weeks!".

When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.

release a special cut of the movie.
