How 'Pretty Woman' Revived Romantic Comedies
Interesting
Category: Production
Tagged: Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman was initially conceived as a gritty story of a drug-addicted prostitute. In an early version of the script, Vivian Ward uttered lines like, "Are you sure you want me to stay for the entire night? I could just pop you good and be on my way." A condition of her unusual arrangement with the billionaire Edward Lewis was that she stay off cocaine for the week they spent together. The whole thing, at first, was meant to be a dark exploration of class divisions in Los Angeles and beyond. It was meant to be a cautionary tale. It was definitely not meant to be a romantic comedy.

These two cinematic success stories have something else in common. They owe a debt to a massively popular predecessor that combines elements of both stories. Namely, "Pretty Woman," which celebrates its 25th anniversary this week.
