If that's so, then how come he had a gun filled with blanks on him?

Maybe he would've fired the gun as part of the fight scene, but was supposed to miss (I mean in the film) or something?

Standard piece of the costume? He was supposed to have one at that point in the movie so they equipped him with one? Or are you questioning the blanks part?

The blanks part. I'd imagine they wouldn't give him a gun capable of great harm outside of sets where it would be really needed. And come to think of it, how did the *********** know to drop dead when he was expecting a swordfight? It all seems kinda fishy to me.

perhaps they refilmed him dying and put it over the original? or maybe he just thought if he got shot he better play dead.

It was either that the swordsman had honestly honed his "death" reflexes so much that he just fell over on instinct (you need to do that if you ever do improv) or Ford did it once without blanks and confused everyone but Spielberg, who liked the idea and wrote it in for another take.

Ifs to not make something impossible.
It just makes it more and more unlikely, yet the unlikely happens all the time.
People get attacked and killed by sharks
People get hit by lightning
People win the lottery
The unlikely happens weekly. It is not truly unlikely for it to be fake, especially given the circumstances. The actor playing Jones likely had a "**** this ****" attitude going on. Guns with blanks still make noise. The actor who had expected to be in a swordfight had likely done something similar to being shot with a gun in a past role or, at the very least, in training. He knew what to do when he heard the gun.

it said they refilmed it so maybe he just pulled out the fake gun and pulled the trigger the first time, but in the one in the movie it had been planned.

this is a slightly altered version of the true story. He actually had food poisoning, and he had discussed doing the scene like this with Spielberg prior to filming. So yes, you are right to question the preparedness of loading his gun with blanks prior to filming this scene.

Most actors are at least semi-decent at improv.

Meh, idc. Makes for a pretty good story either way.

Gotta agree, it makes a good story, but not a fact.

the gun makes a bang and there is smoke. could be edited but highly doubt it for the time.
