Was Gecko's death in the original theater release OR not?


Whoa, how did I come to be mentioned in fine company? :D

In regards to the discussion...I don't remember it but then my first viewing of BTD was when I was a wee little lad in the 80s and I didn't really rematch and soak in all the details until I was much older so I'm afraid I'm of little help.


Thanks DGSimo, you're definitely a major player on this board. Plus you joined the same month as I did!

I can confirm the scene wasn't in the Italian theatrical release... sadly.

Other than in the Tina Turner "WDNAH" I have never seen the Gecko death scene or Max's dream sequence in the UK TV screenings of MM BTD and its not on the UK DVD releases either.

Cant comment on the theatrical release of the movie I was only 6 years old when it was released....first seen the Movie on BBC circa 1991/1992.
Pray hes out there!!

Being 13 when Beyond Thunderdome came out and already fascinated with the Road Warrior, I had the movie Picture Magazine, and the paperback movie adaptation. I always found it frustrating that they never explained what happened to Gecko in the movie, yet there was pics in my magazine. I'll have to see if I can find them and see if the book explains what happened. I too remember the extended camel hijack scene since I think I went and saw it in the theater like 5 times back then
