Classic Interview with Steven Spielberg From 1992 Shows The Arcade Games In His Office

In this classic interview with Steven Spielberg, the iconic director discusses how he still gets nervous at work just as he did in school.  Ed Bradley asks the questions for '60 Minutes' and there is a wonderful scene where we see Spielberg playing some of his video games.  The Classic Bubble Bobble and Final Lap 2 are some of the games we see Spielberg playing in his office and admitting to the interviewer: "This is the kind of place where, potentially we could get no work done."

Also in the interview is Spielberg's mother, Leah Adler who remembers when they bought Steven a movie camera and went shooting in the desert.  She reveals how she would write a note to get Steven out of school just so they could go make movies.  "I just had a ball with him" admits Leah Adler.

We also see Spielberg walking around Universal Studios stopping by the 'Back to the Future' square and witnessing the shark from the 'back lot' tour working perfectly once more.

"There's the shark right there, there's Jaws.  Now, why the shark works so well here everyday and I couldn't get the damn thing working for two months at Martha's Vineyard in 74 I'll never know." said Spielberg.

At the time of the interview, Spielberg still hadn't won an Oscar for best director and he explains that it didn't bother him as there was still time.  He did admit that he was frustrated when 'The Color Purple' was nominated in twelve categories but best director wasn't one.

The video shows a classic looking Steven Spielberg with his beard and just one of many caps, this time sporting a 'Lethal 3' cap.  'Lethal Weapon 3' was released in 1992 by Warner Bros.  It really is a classic interview and if you're a Spielberg fan then it's a must watch.  You can watch the video below.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
