The Cinetropolis website, a site dedicated to "talking shit about movies," brings to attention this 1981 documentary from PBS on the making of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Among the gems in here you’ll see Paul Freeman as Belloq undergo a full head cast, all for a few seconds as the power of the Ark unveiled at the climax causes his head to explode. A bit akin to the reaction we have every time we come across great behind the scenes footage on this classic film.
