Return of the Jedi Monopoly Is A Must!

It's Star Wars Celebration weekend and it's inevitable that there will be a lot of exciting announcements.  More movies to new action figures From Indiana Jones and Star Wars. Naturally they are going to grab the relevant headlines which will of course lead to some other announcements being a little stifled but I felt it was only worth bringing to your attention this little beauty.  The Return of the Jedi edition of an old classic, Monopoly.  Just look at that box artwork!  It's worth buying just for that but look inside too and you will see they've really gone to town on the board and the pieces.

I make no secret that Return of the Jedi is my favourite Star Wars movie and seeing anything Jedi makes me smile.  I don't collect Monopoly but this beauty might just be in my collection come May 23.

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
