One of my favorite movies of all time is Raiders Of The Lost Ark. For pure matinee fun and adventure along with some nervous laughter and cliffhanging moments, this film has no real competition (except two of the sequels). I can watch it over and over again.
Recently, a lost version of the original ending of the movie resurfaced. It was considered too "violent" and would have gotten the movie an "R" rating. So Spielberg went back and came up with the ending we've all seen.
If you're interested here's the original ending before Spielberg changed it. Exploding heads and graphic carnage were in the director's early versions. Funny how times change things. Today, you'll see more shocking carnage on AMC's Walking Dead, but then again, Midnight Cowboy was rated "X" when it won the Oscar for Best Picture.
