Shame not on the DVD!
25 August 2006 | by (STOCKHOLM,SWEDEN) – See all my reviews

I just bought the Indy trilogy on video from the 90's because this vintage documentary was included as an extra tape. The ten bucks i payed for the whole worth the purchase of just this "Making of...".Is the first VHS i buy in years! But i don't regret it at all. I remember i saw it in 1981 on TV. And it's just great!! Too bad it was not on the DVD. It shows in great and really funny detail how this classic was made. It covers the scenes with the big rolling stone, the excavation, the burning of the Nazis and the truck ("What truck!")super stunt. The logistics the locations in Tunisia and in the studios in England. It's a whole one hour and i enjoyed every second of it. If Raiders is your favorite film or is in your top ten you HAVE to put your hands on a copy of it!
