Raiders: They're removing the snake reflection

A friend of mine works for the place that's digitally cleaning the Indy movies for the upcoming DVDs and any future theatrical screenings. He told me last night that they're removing the infamous "cobra reflection." Other things, like the fly, are being kept.

Okay, explain please. Is this the part in the movie where Indy is in the pit with all the snakes and one is standing up in front of him. Is that it? And weren't they Asps, not cobras?

and what 'the fly', if you're going to start a thread like this, the least you could do is give more details.

Ah I had done a search quickly to see if it had been posted before, but I didn't see anything.

If you don't know what he's talking about, then you probably wouldn't care anyway.

Haha. I have seen it a hundred times, but I have not watched it by every single 1/8 frame of the film as so many here have.

When this set was announced back in early May, thedigitalbits.com reported that no alterations were being made to the original content of the films.

Most of the snakes in the pit ARE asps, but there are also several cobras, and the snake who had his reflection captured is one of those cobras.....and you don't have to watch it frame by frame a hundred times to see it.

According to LucasFilm they're not touching the print for the DVD, except to clean it up, remove dirt and fade, etc. I guess your friend is working on something else.

Considering the history of Spielberg/Lucas alterations, I'd say we're lucky that this is the only change.

I'm amazed it took 15 replies to get to that inevitable joke.

Let it go people. It's getting tired.

But there hasn't been a walkie talkie joke yet. Give 'em some time before you flame 'em.
