George Lucas and his various movie cameos

We've taken a look at Steven Spielberg in front of the camera. Well, his pal George Lucas has also shown his face a few times in the spotlights. We could come up with a few stills, to prove that.
Spielberg and Lucas worked together on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and maybe that's why the teamed up together in this cameo as well. Both directors portrayed missionaries, portrayed in the background, who are waiting at the airport, the moment Indy tries to escape Lao Che by plane.
Another cameo where George is barely visible and not recognizable at all, 
is his bit-part in Spielberg's Hook
In one scene we see a couple floating in the sky, kissing each other. 
This couple is made up of George Lucas and none other that Carrie Fisher.
Lucky for us, George's next came gives us a very clear look at him. 
The film is Beverly Hills Cop 3, and the scene is one where a couple comes forward, rather disappointed, that their day out has turned into something of a disaster. 
Next is a film directed by the beard one himself: Star Wars, Episode II, Attack of the Clones.  In this scene playing in the Senate, we see two grey men in the right upper corner, played by George Lucas and (co)producer Rick McCallum.  In The Phantom Menace, we could see E.T. and a few members of his family, who had a cameo in a scene, similar to this one.
In Episode III, Revenge of the Sith, Lucas decided to give us value for money,  as far as his cameo was concerned.  This time he played a part that even ended up on the credits: Baron N. Papanoida.

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
