There were a couple of odd things I noticed this time. One was a fly crawling on Belloq's face (Belloq is Indie's nemesis). He didn't react to it, and it seemed to appear out of nowhere and disappear the same way. A little poking around on the internet turned up this tidbit:
When Belloq is yelling at Indy on the island from down in the canyon, you can see a fly crawling about his face. He doesn't flinch, nor does he make any attempt to shoo it. It eventually ends up in his mouth, and he still doesn't react. The actor actually ate the fly in order that there should not be another take, since they had shot that take many times already.OK, that's one reason I wouldn't want to be an actor.
Another odd thing was during the fight scene at the flying wing. Marian manages to get herself locked in the cockpit of the aircraft. In the next scene she is in a machine gun turret. Now in a conventional bomber, that is, an aircraft with a large diameter fuselage, moving from one position to another can be done as a matter of course. But this aircraft doesn't appear to have any way to exit the cockpit besides through the canopy door. How did she do that? Does it matter? I mean, it's an imaginary plane in a fictional adventure. That's why we love Hollywood.
The Hollywood Theater had obtained a new print of this film, which I imagine cost somebody a couple of bucks. One site claims a print runs on the order of $2,000. I found one site that sells actual movie film, though it's only 16mm, not the 35mm that the big boys use. Given their pricing I figure the film is going to cost more like $5,000, and that's just for the film. Making the print and developing is going to cost more. Of course it probably makes a big difference how many copies you are going to make. I can imagine a single copy costing $10,000, whereas if you were going to make a thousand copies, it might be half that. No wonder they are trying to move to digital video recording and projection.
