The Petrified Prince
About the text
This is likely the manuscript Bergman in his notes from the period often refers to as "the porn movie". You be the judge:
Before the performance begins the Director steps in front of the curtain, calls for silence, clears his throat, speaks:
I beg your pardon, Ladies and Gentlemen, I really do apologize: the performance will soon begin, I won’t be long-winded, but feel compelled to make some sort of explanation, I know it’s not a very good way of beginning a film but I can’t think of anything better.
A crash interrupts the director. A picture has exploded on the curtain. It is very obscene: a man and a woman In the middle of a violent fucking. The walls shake, the draperies flutter, the chandelier vibrates, the bed undulates. It is a Homeric fuck.
