We pick up with Indy and Belloq’s war of words in the Hookah cafe. Again we hear from Sound Editor Mark Mangini as he talks us through legendary voice actor Frank Welker’s involvement in the film.

After the success of Star Wars Begins, I have decided to produce ‘Raiding the Lost Ark’ for release in December 2011. Whilst I will keep the usual ‘Filmumentary’ format, using archival interviews, I will also be interviewing several people involved in the production of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I’ve already recorded and integrated interviews with Wolf Kahler, who starred as Colonel Dietrich and Mark Mangini, Sound Editor. I have also been in contact with the legendary producer Robert Watts who is keen to talk and sculptor Brian Muir, who I hope to speak with this month. By doing these first hand interviews I will be able to get commentary directly targeted to certain scenes, once again giving fans an insight into the making of the film like never before.
