The Thumb On Roy Batty's Shoulder: "BLADE RUNNER" (1982)

(possible spoilers)

Roy Batty visit his creator, Eldon Tyrell.

They chat. Tyrell puts a hand on Roy's shoulder.
Roy kills him.

Later, Roy feels himself dying...
...and clenches his hand in pain.

While editing a much earlier scene, director Ridley Scott finds himself short a couple of shots.
So he borrows the clenching hand...
...and flips the close-up with Tyrell.

Although Tyrell's thumb is still there. 

Some people have a chip on their shoulder...
...Roy Batty has a thumb.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!
