I think "Russians"
was fine by itself.
That whole opening sequence at Area 51 is just great stuff. I love the way they pull Winstone out of the trunk of the car (he really sells it too),,,and then the fedora toss, Indy shoved to the ground, and the almost defiant fedora pickup.
Not only do we get the silhouette of Indy on the car door with the strains of the "Raiders March"
playing, but then it smoothly transitions into the car door opening and the barking Russian orders of the soldier exiting the car.
That whole opening is on fire. Love it!
