Deleted Scene 32: Lady Capulet’s grief

In the movie, in its final cut, the grief of Lady Capulet over the death of Tybalt in her dishevelled state is only seen later in Scene 34, when she appears with the rest of the Capulet clan to protest before the Prince over Tybalt’s death. However, the deletion of Scene 3 (where she is furious when she’s see the blonde girl in Tybalt’s bedroom) and the deletion of Scene 32 (which shows her extreme distraught condition on hearing about his death)  leaves the audience unaware that perhaps there might have been a close relationship between them way beyond that of mere aunt and nephew.

The photographic evidence that the scene was filmed is shown below.

The script for original scene is also provided below.
