Naturaly the first part reveals the origins of Raiders of the lost ark. The Tom Selleck story even including his screen-test with Sean Young. Alfred Molina is worth mentioning, as he has the most fun recounting his film debut. Meanwhile Harrison Ford looks as if he has had hair implants or something. There are more snippets of behind the scenes footage, but unfortunately most of them turn out rather embarrassing (Spielberg bothering Indy with a Micky Mouse voice). On the up side, we finally get to see where Artoo and Threepio are hidden amongst the hieroglyphics.

When Willard Huyk and Gloria Katz were asked to work on the Temple of Doom, they were handed a lot of leftover scenes that never make it into the previous film and an order to name every character after a major crew members' pet. Kate Capshaw now claims to have been a serious art house actress before meeting Spiel, but her IMDb credits reveal no such thing. What is blatantly obvious was Stevens infatuation with her: they never stopped flirting on set.

After all that complaining about the lack of lightness in the second film, everybody brightens up discussing The Last Crusade. Old footage only shows them fooling around on set (quite a difference compared to Star Wars). Sean Connery tells about the input he had on his character: making him less Yoda and more Sean. There are 1988 interviews with River Phoenix and Denholm Elliott with GREAT BIG DATES IN THE SUBTITLES so nobody would think these people are still alive. By this time they were running out of creepy crawlies and had to breed disease free rats themselves (as well as mechanical ones to set on fire).
