Behind the scenes footage from the filming of the projectile vomit scene on the set of The Exorcist, originally shot with Eileen Dietz who wore a special apparatus created by make-up artist Dick Smith. The piece fit inside the actress’ mouth and had flat tubing hidden underneath the demonic make-up.
William Friedkin was not satisfied with the results and eventually brought in Linda Blair to re-shoot the scene without the apparatus and a separate shot of the vomit - a concoction of Andersen’s pea soup and oatmeal - was superimposed in post-production.
A few frames of the Dietz footage can still be seen in the film.
