E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is one of the highest-grossing films of all-time and is often considered to be one of the greatest films ever made.

The film had several deleted scenes from it. However, nearly all of these scenes (most notably a scene involving a cameo by Harrison Ford) have been shown to the public via the film's various home media releases and 2002 theatrical reissue.

Description[edit | edit source]

The scene would have occurred after Mary (Dee Wallace) reads Peter Pan to Gertie (Drew Barrymore) and E.T. heals Elliott (Henry Thomas). In it, E.T. (wearing a bathrobe) observes Mary sleeping on a bed naked. He would then place Reese's Pieces on her pillow.[1]

Availability[edit | edit source]

Until 2012, it was unknown if the scene was even filmed. That year, two still images (one of the actual scene, another between takes) were released in a commemorative book. The only information that was given was that they were deleted from the final cut.
