This Star Wars Documentary Is The Reason The Bearded Trio Exists

Here's something you may not know. It was thanks to the documentary, "In the Beginning" that this page and our site, The Bearded Trio exists. I've been a fan of Spielberg, Lucas and Williams since the 70's and my passion for the three has never dwindled. Getting a behind the scenes look at any of the three has always grabbed my attention. I love their movies, music and especially the behind the scenes magic. The documentary below is an amazing window into how a movie is made and in particular, Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

There's no commentary but instead you really do feel like you are right there in the room with the various talents we see. I watched this documentary around the time when The Phantom Menace came out in the bite size snippets that were released on the web but again in full in 2009. It was watching it again that, for some reason sparked an urge in me to want to create a website to celebrate their work. A way to say thank you for all the movie magic that they have given us over the decades. I wanted to create a site that celebrated their work, a place where you can get a regular behind the scenes window to look through, a bit like this documentary.

This documentary is kind of responsible for the start of The Bearded Trio. For me this is a must watch for all fans of Lucas, Star Wars and film making. I love the prequels but if you're not a fan, remember this, it was thanks to a prequel movie that this page and the site exists. I love you all, thank you for visiting our page and site, I really do appreciate it, you've made The Bearded Trio what it is today.

Happy Star Wars Day and May the Force be with you all. - Rob

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
