The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the most beloved musicals of all time, especially to those who like shows with a little more bite, but when the iconic movie came out in 1975 it was overlooked by critics.
However, everyone who worked on the production knew it was pure magic, and all the fun taking place on the set and behind the scenes was captured on a series of now historic Polaroid photos.
These precious Polaroids (original photographer unknown) were used in The Rocky Horror Scrapbook then later purchased from a private collection by Larry Viezel.
Trouble is, a few of them fell out of Larry's bag at a New York City subway platform back in 2011, and could have been lost forever if a guy named Brady Marter hadn't shared them on Collectors Weekly:
Founds these on the platform of the C train in TriBeCa in 2011. They are photos of Tim Curry and the cast of Rocky Horror during the making of the film. Some have writing on the back and Frankenfurter kissed the back of one.
Larry commented on Brady's post and was able to convince him to return all but one of the Polaroids, a small price to pay to make this irreplaceable collection whole again.
