4 comments to 25 Greatest Unscripted Scenes in Film
Dr Strangelove was too funny I need to buy that on DVD
During an interview, Gabriel Byrnes said they were all laughing during the line-up scene in the Usual Suspects because Benicio Del Toro kept farting.
Same in a Peter Sellers elevator scene.
The best unscripted scene ever done is in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
It is interesting to note that the director had initially planned a long choreographed swordfight for this scene. Harrison Ford, how was feeling ill and didn’t have the energy to do the entire scene, supposed said, “Why don’t I just shoot him?” It fit in well with the Jones character, and was used in the film.
