Fans Urge Warner Brothers To Release Bill Fishman Cut of Car 54 Where Are You?
By Mikel Jackel

It’s now been thirty years since the malformed, shambling remains of Bill Fishman’s Car 54 Where Are You? crawled into theaters. With Warner Bros. having lost confidence in Fishman after horrendous test screenings, they booted him off the project, and subjected the movie to nightmarish editing that turned the musical into a standard comedy. What came out of this torturous process pleased nobody, with the film going on to flop at the box office and receive a deserved critical drubbing.

For most films, that would be the end of the story, with Car 54 Where Are You?’s fate being to reside in bargain bins forever. But Car 54‘s fans aren’t just any fans. Fueled by a constant drip of rumors about Bill Fishman’s completed musical cut of the movie, elements from it being teased by Fishman himself and even half-finished scenes from it hitting the internet, fans have been demanding that Warner Bros. release the Fishman cut. And if anything, their voices have been getting louder.

Now, there’s a new Twitter campaign to get Fishman’s version out, with users posting tweets from across the world imploring Warner Bros. to give us the film they left on the cutting room floor. Here’s just a selection:

These are just two of thousands of tweets, and if you search for the #ReleaseTheFishmanCut hashtag, you’ll see many, many more. But will the Fishman cut of Car 54 Where Are You? ever see the light of day? It’s possible with the film community finally coming together to demand absolution.
