The scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark as shot for the film was dramatically shortened; the original script intended Indy to fight the swordsman with a lengthy choreography and usage of his whip. However, Harrison Ford along with most of the crew were suffering from dysentery, and could not wear their trousers for more than a few minutes. Ford then suggested they “just shoot the f***er”. Steven Spielberg agreed resulting in the biggest laugh of the film and one of its most memorable sequences.
