    Who can tell my what caused the rewrite in Raiders of the Lost Ark that caused the long fight scene between Indiana and the man with the sword to be changed to what we saw in the theaters of Indy simply shooting him after he waves his sword around. It's one of the funniest scenes in the movie and it was an improv. Why did he change it?
    I thought I remember hearing that Harrison Ford thought it would be funny to do the gun scene the way it is now, either as a joke or because he was tired of refilming it...and everyone liked it so much they decided to keep it.

    You're on the right track Shpongle, but there was something more specific he said about why he wanted to stop shooting.

    "The Triple Goddess as Maiden, Mother and Crone, is a relatively new concept which was made popular during the 20th century. Hekate is today most often equated to the Crone aspect of this triplicate archetypal image, but this idea of Hekate as Crone Goddess is one which would have been completely alien to the people of ancient Greece. The only possible explanation for the continued association today is that somehow the darker, scarier aspects of Hekate has been equated to wisdom in old age, which is, when you think about it rather ludicrous." -- Sorita D'Este.

    Because he had a fever of 100-something and just wanted to go to bed. :D

    I LOVE that scene! :D
    It's been minutes, it's been days. It's been all that I remember. <3

    He had a fever and a serious case of the trots and was tired of running from the scene to the toilet. There was no way they were going to be able to get it finished so he improvised and everyone went for it. Yep Star that's one of my faves too

    Who's next?

    Because life is so much more exciting when you're being persecuted.

    I know it! But only because I googled for it (it was MoonOwl, she made me do it).

    OK, I have a question. Sci Fi fans might be able to get this one.

    Avery Brooks won the role of Ben Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. What other two actors were seriously considered?
