One of the best beats in Raiders of the Lost Ark was a product of Harrison Ford’s upset stomach. Recall the scene in which Jones comes face to face with a swordman, twirling his blade, only to nonchalantly pull out his pistol and shoot him?
Well, had Ford not been popping off to the potty so urgently he would have engaged in a full-on fight. Material showing this sequence will be included on the upcoming Indiana Jones Blu-ray set. It’s “behind the scenes” footage rather than finished clips, but the idea is there.
And EW are running the clip now, as a promo for the Blu-rays. A quick look at YouTube found that it has been ripped and popped up there, so here’s an embed.
I’m much happier with what we did get, to be honest. I’m sure there’s some kind of moral to be learned here.
