RARE PHOTOS of Linda Blair On Set

Autographed rare picture of Linda Blair

Two extremely rare images of Linda Blair on the set of The Exorcist in 1972/3 have surfaced via eBay. They were brought to my attention by Everything Exorcist forum member Creepy Possessed.

They are both black and white production photographs signed by Linda Blair. I don’t recall ever seeing these photographs ever before.

The first (above) gives us a close look at the prosthetic tongue Linda used in The Exorcist. She is poised at the bottom of the stairs where the spiderwalk scene took place, which may indicate why this became so rare because the spiderwalk sequence was not used in the original release of the film. Linda is looking into the camera, a clear indication this is a production photo.

The second image (below) seems to depict Linda either practicing the “You’re gonna die up there…” pee scene, or an alternate take in progress. She is hiking her nightgown up to reveal her ankles; a pose not used in the final cut of the film.

Fascinating to see images like this still surfacing after all these years.

    During the party sequence, Regan urinates on the floor.That scene looked pretty real, but I have never heard any comment on how they went about doing that scene…..it is the start of Regan’s shocking behavior change, and yet, no one has ever dared to ask this one question: Was she really peeing on the floor? Was there some kind of water balloon that was rigged under the nightgown…..a whoopee cushion filled with water?I still can’t figure it out.

  • Similar to the balloon thing, it was a bag that was strapped to her legs and somehow she activated it, but it was a very small hole, and it was filled with water.
