In the latest episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, Simon looks at the darkness of Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom, and the cross-Atlantic uneasy marriage that led to Chicken Run.
Temple Of Doom came at a tough time for George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and those around them. Plus, Harrison Ford is in it less than you may think.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode…
