Streisand & Carrie Fisher Seen in SM-Themed ‘Indiana Jones’ Prank Video

Okay, so maybe this was common knowledge to hardcore fans, but I never knew that a gag scene was made on the 1983 set of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) featuring Barbra Streisand as a dominatrix whipping Indy/Harrison Ford ... and Carrie Fisher rushing in to save him.

We need this in 4K. (Image via video still)

The footage is grainy, but has existed in the public eye forever, including an apparent screening at a 1984 convention.

This version's been on YouTube for five years, and — as is now how things are done — someone posting it on Twitter has reignited interest in a long-lost item that was never lost at all.

A quality version seems to be much more elusive, however!

Here is a transcript, and yes, Barbra Streisand in 1983 felt comfy describing her gay leather daddy gear as making her look "like a faggot." Thanks, Babs.

Barbra Streisand: "This is for Guns of Navarone!"

Barbra Streisand: "Guns of Navarone? No..."

Harrison Ford: "For Force Ten..."

Barbra Streisand: "For Force Ten!"

Barbra Streisand: "This is for Hanover Street!"

Barbra Streisand: "This is for all the money you’re going to make on Return of the Jedi!"

Harrison Ford: "Who's that?"

Carrie Fisher: "Someone who needs you!"

Irvin Kershner: "What the hell's the matter with you? Steve! Come on! I don't believe one word you're saying. Now come on, do it again."

Barbra Streisand: "Give me a reason!"

Harrison Ford: "It's the dialogue!"

Carrie Fisher: "Can I change lines?"

Irvin Kershner: "Listen."

Carrie Fisher: "Yeah?"

Irvin Kershner: "I want you to believe what you are doing!"

Carrie Fisher: "Okay."

Irvin Kershner: "You call that shouting? You call that pain?"

Harrison Ford: "Steven…"

Irvin Kershner: "Steve, how can you let him do this? Come on!"

Harrison Ford: "Okay, ready ... ready."

Carrie Fisher: "I'll be good, I promise."

Irvin Kershner: "Do it again!"

Harrison Ford: "Really hit me! Really hit me this time!"

Barbra Streisand: "Okay."

Harrison Ford: "Don't do it with such ... really hit me!"

Barbra Streisand: "I feel like a faggot..."

A very strange joke that would be interesting to see fully restored, in spite of Streisand's offensive ad-lib.

As a bonus, here is another unfortunate Streisand clip. However, in this clip, her use of what today is "the R-word" was completely accepted language in the '60s. It's just ... awkward to watch now:
