Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of the best movies ever. It’s just brilliant. So Jamie Benning, who calls his film documentaries filmumentaries, decided to release the first 17 minutes of his Indiana Jones documentary.
If you’re a fan of the film you need to watch this. It’s filled with tidbits and fun behind the scenes stuff for the film. Did you know the studio didn’t want Steven Spielberg to make the film? Did you know that Tom Selleck auditioned? Do you want to see that audition? You can see all of these in this documentary. Oh, there’s also a great story from Alfred Molina about the tarantula scene in the film.
It’s definitely worth a watch. [via Movies.com]
