I now have missing scenes. My male Lab, Bear, stole my volume 4 of RTL while I was in the shower. He took the bottom halves of half the pages of the book. I might be able to save most of them, but I'm a very sad puppy.
There's a cut scene that extends the ballroom sequence where Jareth actually kisses Sarah, which is why the song is so long, but it was dropped after being shown to a test audience because people thought it was in bad taste since she was underage. Wow...let's see, who can we blackmail ;D
Yeah, it couldn't hurt. If we could get a lot of people to express enough interest. I know those scene haven't been destroyed as Neil Gaiman claimed to have watched them while he was making Mirrormask.
I wish they would have at least put that deleted scene where Jareth kisses Sarah I think all of us would have loved to have seen that.
I actually looked into this, to see where the rumour emerged from. I summarized my findings on a post on another board-
There's no evidence to demonstrate such a scene was shot, although Jareth does attempt to kiss Sarah in an early draft of the script and in the novelization of the film. It looks like that part of the scene was exorcised from the shooting script, most likely due to the extreme inappropriateness of 38 year-old David Bowie kissing 14 year-old Jennifer Connelly.
The rumour started due to a false piece of information placed on wikipedia which said they had kissed and that the scene has originally featured a song called 'First Kiss,' both of which were cut after test audiences reacted badly. The source given for this was a German interview with Bowie, in which Labyrinth wasn't even mentioned!
