Whether you like it or not, a remake of beloved cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show is headed to Fox this fall, and the good news is that Tim Curry will be a part of the so-called “TV event.” It’s been over 40 years since Curry brought iconic character Dr. Frank-N-Furter to both stage and screen, and a handful of vintage Polaroids have just surfaced that take us back to that time.
We hope you’re ready to do the Time Warp. Again.
As reported by Dangerous Minds, a man by the name of Brady Marter stumbled across a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of The Rocky Horror Picture Show in Tribeca, New York back in 2011. Marter subsequently uploaded the photos onto the net, and his article about the find caught the attention of collector Larry Viezel, who dropped them on that fateful day.
“These were part of a collection I bought from someone in New Mexico,” Viezel commented on the article over on Collector’s Weekly. “These were used in making The Rocky Horror Scrapbook. I had it shipped to my office (I worked on the corner of Hudson and Canal) and was taking them home. A bunch fell out of my bag and I picked them up. When I got home I realized I missed one. Looks like I missed more than one! If it’s any proof, I’d be happy to show you the rest of the collection.”
The incredible story ended with Marter returning the Polaroids to Viezel, and we all benefit from the lost-and-found mishap because those photos have now been preserved for us all to see here on the world wide web. As mentioned, the photos actually hit the net back in 2011, but it was only this week that they went viral and caught our attention. And we’re smiling ear-to-ear right now.
