“Top Secret!” Backwards Scene: Forward

If you’ve ever seen the hilarious 1984 film Top Secret! you’ll remember there’s a sequence set in a Swedish book store that was filmed entirely in reverse. Well, thanks to the editing skills of Youtube user reishiki, we can now see that scene as it was originally filmed. We’ve got the clip as it appeared in the film, followed by how it was originally filmed. By the way, that’s the great Peter Cushing (who most Americans know as Grand Moff Tarkin in the original Star Wars) playing the book store owner.
