Added Ford: “And it was the last thing we had to shoot in Tunisia before we left to shoot in England. And the scene before this in the movie involved a whip fight against five bad guys trying to kidnap Marion, so I thought it was a bit redundant.
“I was stumped on how to get out of these three days of filming, so when I got to the set, I proposed to Steven that we just shoot the ab***h son.
“Steve said, ‘I was thinking of that too.’ So he drew his sword, poor fellow was a wonderful British stuntman who had practiced his sword skills for months to get this job done, and he was quite shocked at the idea that we’d ship it out in five minutes.
“But he did swing his sword, and I drew my gun and shot him, and then we went back to England.”
