Sean Connery And Harrison Ford Went Pants-Less For One Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade Scene
By BILL BRIA
"Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" required its lead actors, Sean Connery and Harrison Ford, to rise to numerous physical challenges. One challenge that Connery and Ford refused to rise to, however, was wearing trousers during a hot day on set.
There is a scene in "Last Crusade" where both of these men have dropped trou, one that made it into the movie's final cut. However, spotting the scene may be a little more difficult than you'd expect if you don't know where to look.
The scene occurs near the middle of the film, when Indiana Jones and his father, Henry Jones, Sr., are attempting to escape Berlin by zeppelin. As Connery recalled, "All the passengers were wearing fur coats and hats, and it's supposed to be in the wintertime. And I played it without my trousers."
Ford questioned Connery’s decision to go pantless for the scene, but soon followed suit. Connery remembered, "I said, 'Well, if I don't, I'll be stopping all the time because I sweat enormously, I sweat very easily.' Well, he did the same."
