In the original script, The Kid takes Vanity to a barn, and they make love during "When Doves Cry.' Rain patters strongly against the barn, and deep thunder rolls, the lyrical inspiration for the song "Raspberry Beret." The song is found on "Around the World In A Day," which was released after "Purple Rain." See more »
The Kid's motorcycle has an automatic transmission. Sometimes when The Kid does crazy bike tricks, the clutch is visible, indicating a stunt rider on a manual bike. See more »
Ok, so it may not be the award-winning "movie of the year" type-film (apart from the brilliant soundtrack that I think won a few awards), but it is a really great film about 'The Kid' (Prince / O( take your pick) and the happenings around him living in Minneapolis, playing his music. The music is absolutely superb, in my opinion you HAVE to own this soundtrack, it is truly a classic and sums up the eighties sounds and feel in a wonderful fashion. And the movie itself plays out a nice plot, it's worth seeing over and over again, espeically if you like Prince / O (which I do) of course.
