As I posted in another thread, my wife (then fiancee) and I were in this movie: she was the stand-in for Claudette Nevins' character, and I did some stand-ins for Paul Mones. We did a bunch of extra scenes and walk-throughs (she was a doctor who checks on a patient, then walks up the corridor in the hospital scene) as well.

There was an original ending to the film shot at the high school where Paul's character goes postal with a pistol. At one point, he happens upon a young couple; the young man throws his sweetie down to the ground and shields her with his body. Then as Paul passes, his interest clearly elsewhere, the young man scoops up the girl, and they both boogie off into the background at top speed.

That was me and my wife of 25 years, and unfortunately, an alternate ending was chosen, so the scene ending up on the proverbial cutting room floor. I do lay claim to it, however, as I was the one who suggested it to Pat Kehoe (super nice guy), and he went with it.

I would love to find it somehow, and show it to our four kids...
