The Mine Car Chase[2] took place in 1935 as Indiana Jones and his companions, Willie Scott and Short Round fled the Temple of Doom.

Behind the scenes[]

A mine car chase was written into the climax of Raiders of the Lost Ark where Colonel Herman Dietrich and other survivors of the opening of the Ark of the Covenant pursue Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood escaping the Nazi island base through underground tunnels with the relic. The idea was abandoned and recycled for the sequel Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.[3]

It should be noted that during the Mine Car Chase, when Indy's party and the Thuggee travel through different tunnels in the mine carts, several chasms are visible. However, when Mola Ram floods the tunnels, the water quickly reaches them with little difficulty.[1]
