Why was the narrator part in the Sword of Damacles removed? It is the only line in the whole play that makes mention of Rocky HORROR. I've had friends ask me, "Why do they call it Rocky HORROR Picture Show?" They should have kept the narrator line in or have Frank call him "Rocky Horror" at least once.

Because honestly, that part just kills the flow of the song. Remember that in RHS, the Narrator was on stage, so the transition to his part was okay. In the movie, jumping from a scene where everyone's up and moving to a guy sitting at a desk, mid-song, would be quite jarring.

I suspect it was pre-recorded and filmed, as was Once in A While and (was probably pre-recorded, less evident it was filmed) Brad's verse in "Over at thee Frankenstein Place." And then as they were trying to find the right pace/running time, it was among the first to go.
