A short film featuring Indiana's friend Sallah who narrates about Indy's discovery of the Temple of the Forbidden Eye built for god Mara where visitors can see future. Filmed for Adventureland ride in Disneyland.
An uncredited Marcia Lucas edited the split-screen scenes for the 1966 sequence (many of which were incorporated to cover up the story defects). George Lucas, also uncredited, edited the Vietnam scenes for the 1965 sequence, making footage of just two helicopters seem like a dozen. See more »
The soldier outside the HQ bunker who spots Toad carries and then aims an AK-47 style rifle, supplied to communist forces by the Soviet Union and China. Using enemy weapons would normally be against regulations, although it was not unheard of for US soldiers in Viet Nam to obtain and use weapons like the AK-47. However, this would be very unlikely in relative rear areas like a fire base, especially under a commanding officer like Major Creech. See more »
Give me your signature, champ.
[thinks it over for a moment]
Well, I'll tell you what. I'm not gonna sign it, but why don't you light it on fire and stick it up your ass?

I'm guessing a lot of folks that have complained about the split screen in MAG kid of missed yet another bit of cleverness that seemed to fly over the heads of a lot of viewers.
Each section (year) is shot in a different manner to make a secondary visual comment. The Vietnam stuff is all shot on 16mm, hand-held and grainy as hell to simulate the stuff we were watching on the nightly news back then.
Milner's sequences are shot in super widescreen, Debbie's stuff is split screen, sped up, slowed down - your basic "statement" crap from the late 60's and Ron Howard's happy home life is shot with the over-lit, over-tailored feel of a "mainstream" comedy ala Doris Day/Bob Hope circa 1965.
Personally, I found it amusing.
