_Raiders of the Lost Ark_ (vhs/ntsc)(1981)
- Begins with a shot of a peak in the jungle
which is reminiscent of the Paramount Pictures logo.
- Tom Selleck originally cast as Indiana Jones,
but was committed to _Magnum P.I._ (1980).
- Jock's airplane at the beginning has the
registration number OB-3PO, referring to Obi-Wan and C-3PO
from _Star Wars_ .
- Script originally included a long fight between
a swordsman and Indiana with his whip. Actor Harrison
Ford was suffering diarrhea at the time,
asked "Why don't I just shoot him?'', so they filmed this instead.
- The truck that didn't have Marion in it was
flipped over by firing a section of a telephone pole
through the floorboards.
- Ford badly bruised his ribs during the scene
where he is dragged behind the truck.
- The hieroglyphics
in the map room include engravings of R2-D2 and
C-3PO (from _Star Wars (1977)_), however they do not appear on film.
- A fly can be seen
crawling into Belloq's mouth (and not reappearing) in one scene.
- Harrison Ford did not use a stunt player for
the scene where Indy is dragged behind the truck. When
asked if he was worried, Ford quipped: "No. If it
really was dangerous, they would have filmed more of the movie
- Director Steven Spielberg was quoted as saying:
"I made it as a B-movie... I didn't see the film as anything more than
a better made version of the Republic serials.''
