Another UPGRADE post for you folks!
As I was checking the old post I also checked if there was a source with better video quality available….and yes, it was!
This one is from a widescreen HD TV airing, and it’s quite an improvement over the old one, even the recording itself wasn’t done in HD (why???).
And this time I include every second of her wearing that wetsuit/shorty.
Also, I wanna have a proper text included with this classic scene.
This is the old post:

And here is the video:
Quite a scene!
She was caught by surprise, her mask not in place yet, she gets pulled underwater.
Good timing by the sneaky attacker. She does manage to get the regulator on her mouth (it wasn’t as she still was on the boat).
But he is at a big advantage now as she doesn’t have a scuba mask anymore.
He goes for her regulator and steals it from her! As often in such scenes, she doesn’t try to get it back, which I always find a little odd.
The scene is cut quite weird with showing the grabbing hands of the attacker several times for example.
I read that the scene here where she is about to drown wasn’t acted as Farah Fawcett really inhaled water and was about to drown!
Of course, that wasn’t planned to happen, but as you can see, they decided to leave that scene in the movie.
It’s bad that it happened to her, that must have been quite a horrible experience!
But somehow I can understand why the scene was left in the movie…I mean no one would have gained anything if it wasn’t left in the movie.
This way it was a very realistic scene in this scuba attack….even it was way too realistic for Farrah Fawcett.
What happens with the attacker? Suddenly his scuba mask is gone and quickly he completely vanishes from the scene….
Another error in this scene:
She runs with her scuba tank to catch up to the others. Here a double hose regulator is attached to her tank.
Underwater she suddenly is using a single hose regulator….. #magic
All in all a good scene, even it could have been improved by a better cutting.
Farrah Fawcett looks really stunning in this shorty/wetsuit.
Here are some DVD covers of this movie as a bonus:

Hmh, not easy to get this one on DVD, especially outside the US, will try to get my hands on it to add it to my collection!
Even I have already shown the movie title, here is the IMDB link:
What do you think of this scene?
