Actually, the Indiana Jones diarrhea part isn't true, it was because they had done so any takes and Harrison Ford was really tired, so one take he just decide to pull out his gun and shoot the guy, and his costar played along, the directors liked it so much that they decided to keep it in there....
Just so you know :)

Actually, you are totally wrong. Harrison was doing an interview recently and said that he was indeed sick and felt bad for the actor doing the swordplay because he had worked for months. Ford went to Spielberg and told him about the idea to do it and Spielberg agreed to try it and see how it looked.
It wasn't as spontaneous as everyone has made it out to be, but a quick collaboration before the shooting of the scene itself...

Just so YOU know...

I knew most of the Harry Potter one and I knew the Indiana Jones one. The rest I didn't know.

Harrison Ford said on "Inside The Actors Studio" that the plan for "Raiders..." was to have a big swordfight, but Ford interjected, "Why don't I just shoot him?" & THAT'S how the decision was made. Sounds logical to me.

According to Harrison Ford ("Inside The Actors Studio"), he was the one who objected to the swordfight, commenting "Why don't I just shoot him?"

Actually It Was Harrison Ford Who Came Up With The Idea Of Shooting The Swordsman In Raiders-He Was Running A Fever And Was Getting Tired And Said To Lucas And Spielberg "Why Don't I Just Shoot The Fu8ker".Read The Book The Making Of Raiders Of The Lost Ark And Get Your Facts Straight!!!! Also a Film Must Make 3 Times its budget To Be A Hit Or Blockbuster...Just Saying!!!!
