Giger's work is all about sexual overtones. The designs/images that made it into the film are tame by comparison.  The alien itself has a phallus for a head...and that's not suggestive?

Bette Midler is quoted as saying "Did you see that film ALIEN with John Hurt? That little [expletive deleted] came rocketing outta his stomach like a penis on a skateboard crying Mummy all the way."  Buggedout TeddyR TeddyR

Not many others in this thread remember this.  Perhaps this was wishful imagination on the part of the OP?  TeddyR

Fueled by curiosity to see an Alien remove someone's pants, I went to The Alien Legacy boxset that has sat unwatched since the day I bought it.  It's a great movie, and manages its scares and atmosphere without the use of background music for the most part, just good directorial and cinematographic skill.  But I was really there to see, well, you know.

I'm not sure if The Alien Legacy has theatrical releases or director's cuts, but many of the scenes with the Alien munching down on people seem oddly choppy and short.  The scene of Lambert's death is as follows:

The Alien looms over Lambert, who is terrified into motionlessness, while Parker stands behind the Alien and yells to Lambert to get out of the way.  The Alien turns and grabs Parker, and munches down on him.  Lambert remains frozen, and there is a moment where the Alien's tail slowly drifts along the floor, between Lambert's feet, and then up the back of her legs towards her waistband.  Ripley hears Lambert's screams and comes running: she finds Parker lying bloodied on the ground, and we see Lambert's bare calves and shoeless feet as she dangles from the ceiling.

So it does seem that the Alien took off Lambert's pants!  Why it did this, I do not know.  Is there another version of this scene, or was that it?

This is the only alternate take of that scene that I know of.  There's no audio in this clip or on the deleted scene of Disc 1.  It's funny seeing the alien do a crab walk.
