Alternative Movie Ending: “The Purple Rose of Cairo”

This one was difficult to do, because the original is quite good. The problem is I am too much of a scientist to accept supernatural facts. Of course, in this context, the movie character behaving like a normal being is very attractive and makes a great film. It opens the door for millions of similar situations. What could happen if Superman could walk out of a movie and offer us a favour or desire? What if we could enter Titanic and warn everyone about an imminent disaster?

“The Time Tunnel” was a TV series in the sixties that accepted that premise, and sometimes the heroes intervened to twist history in a proper way. But Woody Allen was very original in this movie, as in many others.
