|Extremities is based on a Broadway play of the same
name, and stars Farrah Fawcett and James Russo. Its stage origin is
painfully obvious, as it suffers from being too wordy, having very few
characters or sets, and worse, the players still think they are on
stage, as they play the parts too large, and are very careful not to
step on each others lines, making conversations seem very stilted.
The plot: Fawcett is nearly raped in her car, and
she escapes and files a police report, but is informed that they won't
find him, and even if they did, there was not enough evidence to hold
him. The police don't even much care that the rapist has her wallet.
Russo, the rapist, shows up at the house she shares with two
roommates, and has a full day of torture planned. Fawcett manages to
gain the upper hand, and is fairly serious about doing what the police
said they couldn't.
Fawcett has a definite nip slip while struggling
with Russo, and a good pokie near the start of the film. There is also
a brief shot where the rapist takes a breast out and sucks a nipple.
Some think this must be a body double since there is no face in the
shot. I think they may be Farrah for the following reasons. First, she
does have the nip slip, so has already shown her nipple in the film.
Second, there is no double in the credits for her, although a Russo
stand-in is credited. Third, there are dirt spots on her back in the
nipple kissing scene that are still there later when she is at the
stove, and her face is visible in that scene. There is a shower scene,
but it is cropped well above her breasts, even in the 4/3 version.
