|Scene Name: Truck Scene|
David Trimble, who played the Basque, recalls that a companion “return” Truck Scene was filmed in which he drove the boys back to Signal, in silence, at the end of their Brokeback summer. To date, we have been unable to find any script references to the “return” scene. (If you are aware of one, please let us know!)
Trimble also remembers that there was heavy rain on the day this scene was filmed, and that the sound of the rain was very loud. Perhaps technical considerations made it necessary to omit this scene from the film. Alternately, like the Signal Gas Station scene which it alludes to, the Truck Scene may have been cut in order to propel the action to the critical mountain scenes which follow it.
