The first time I saw this movie, I was sure something was missing between these two cups of tea. My first thought was that the film broke and the projectionist spliced it back together leaving out a scene or two.
If you read the screenplay, you'll see there was a scene of Brandon trudging up a steep hill in the rain. Although the scene was shot, it didn't make it into the film.
