Legends Of The Fall - Pitt Fought To Keep Favourite Scene In Legends Of The Fall

Brad Pitt fought to keep his favourite scene from Legends Of The Fall in the film after test audiences told researchers they hated it.
The movie star was stunned when he learned director Ed Zwick had been told to cut the scene and demanded to see the marketing reports from the screening.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, "They said it was the most hated scene. I said, 'That can't be. I understand that it's uncomfortable, but it's a monumental scene. Can I see these reports?'
"They showed them to me. It was also the second-most-liked scene, and I go, 'Guys, this is exactly why we're here. We want to evoke emotion, not favourable opinion, not agreement.'"
But Pitt's comments fell on deaf ears - the mystery scene was cut.
