Yup. It was never shot.

Some of the pictures from the motorbike chase showed Harrison driving the bike... were those just promotional shot or is there a deleted scene with Indy driving?

Good thing someone has the time to search every single thing.

You know so we can do the mod's jobs for them.

If you read the making of book, The comic adaptation, and the novel...there are plenty of deleted areas that would have worked very well.

I would like to know why some of the Hanger edits were made.

The scrubbing was in the Novel.

Ah, a scene that was rumoured deleted but that actually wasn't is the Russians dancing and singing folk songs at the camp, celebrating the capture of the prisoners.
When Tyler Nelson, the extra who played a russian dancer, revealed details of the scene, someone supposed that the scene could be cut.

Maybe I'm crazy, but I swore that trailer of Indy running between two rows of crates, coiling his whip as bullets strike the crates around him, wasn't in the movie. Either it was cut and I just didn't even notice it.

And while not deleted stuff, I did notice some shots (like Indy running up along the rafters, the Russians passing Mac as they fire at Indy) were actually flipped from how they appeared in the trailer, and some of the various dialogue in the trailer was different and/or spliced from completely different scenes.

The Jungle Duel scenario isn't in the film, BUT...

....if you watch closely, you will see that giant 3 foot banana from the Jungle Duel playset being thrown by one of the monkeys towards the commies during the chase.

THAT took me right out of the film.

I dunno if it was in the novelisation or at any point in the script or even tossed around, but I was most dissapointed by the lack of a big battle between the Akator Natives and Russians. They had potential to have a badass apocalypto sort of fight there.

Also I didn't like the lack of the Jungle Cutter. It was cool to end the Jungle chase w/ the Ant fight, but add the Jungle Cutter to that equation. Think about it, Indy and Dovchenko fighting on top of it, the blades whirring, grinders spinning, ants surrounding it...

That was in the movie, but it was in the middle of a longer shot.

About the editing, I thought some shots just took too long. Like when Mutt and the monkey face each other. Why linger on the monkey so long? It happens several times. When Indy says "Part time", we see him standing there doing nothing. Should've been a quicker cut.

i think he and the monkey have a longer moment in order to form a (incredibly tenuous) connection in regards to similar hair styles. that's why the monkeys don't attack mutt - they all have D.A. cuts...

as far as indy in the cemetery ... he smirks... i guess...

also, i wish he fired his gun at some point.

Yep, I agree. We saw it for about a ten second shot of it cutting through the jungle, and then the next time we see it it's being blown up.

Both good ideas. The Jungle Cutter was particularly underused. I wonder, however, if they thought of doing it that way but then decided that it would be too similar to the fight with Vogel, but with the colonel being sliced to death in the manner of the German mechanic instead? Of course, he still could - and should - have been devoured by the ants, but it would still leave open the question of what happens to the cutter. If it just falls over the cliff, obviously, that's a bad call, and the ants wouldn't bring it into the anthill. Perhaps it could have somehow run-aground on the anthills? Not sure.

Another thing that could have made it in, of course, was the old bit about the secret lair behind the waterfall, but a good comparison of Saucermen from Mars is neither something I'm equipped to do at the moment or eager to take up.

Yeah... does anyone else think these possibly deleted scenes would have been GREAT in the movie?

The example of Mutt's bloody knife - looks like a real moment!

(though, in the Ultimate Guide, it specifically says it has never been used in violence).

The trading cards show other scenes, like one between Indy and Mac fighting in the sedan...

Who knows - they could have been promotional, but it seems like an even better film was somewhere in there...?

Maybe a Director's cut?

That was not Mac in the sedan. It was Dimitri Diatchenko and it was in the movie. It's the scene where Dimitri pulls Indy off Mutt's bike and into the back of the sedan.

There is a picture of that in the new Indy magazine. In this picture Mutt was in the scene too.

The Football stadium scene was cut last year in New Haven and never filmed! Though extras were cast and costumes made the Yale Bowl was cut out last year. There was a beautiful wooden door made at Yale and had a motorcycle crash through it that was filmed -- never made it in... saw that one with my own eyes..

Generally one of the disappointments for me was that the trailer led me to expect sequences that in fact turned out to last not much longer than in the trailer

Example
In the warehouse, Indy whips, swings, ends up in the truck, punches the drivers out - and seconds later is in Spalko's jeep.

Example
The shot of the warriors stalking Indy & Co, bolos whirling, Mac shouting Jonesy - and 90 seconds later everything is sorted.

And there are more

I just know there's a deleted scene where the camera zooms in on Indy's eyes in that classic motif. Clearly Someone thought it didn't work, which is pretty tragic. I was hanging out to see that motif. Not a true Indy film without it.

In the trailer there is this shot of something falling from the sky.

I always thought it was something alien soaring towards the ground, but it was never used in the movie, or I kinda completely missed it twice.

I would love to see more Spalko/Dovchenko dialogue, action, or communication, etc.

Regarding Dovenchiko, perhaps actions speaks louder than words.
