Unused footage from Raiders of the Lost Ark reveals what Indiana Jones' marketplace battle was supposed to look like

While filming Raiders of the Lost Ark thirty-odd years ago in Tunisia, Harrison Ford was battling a nasty bout of dysentery. Instead of filming a lengthy, three-and-a-half page fight scene with a scimitar-wielding baddie, Ford convinced Steven Spielberg to end their duel with a quick and iconic bang. Check out how that scene was supposed to look before Ford was wracked with intestinal discomfort. This footage comes from a documentary that accompanies the five-disc Indiana Jones Blu-ray collection, which hits stores September 18.
