Long-lost Temple of Doom gag clip (with Carrie Fisher!) resurfaces

It's only September, but it's suddenly feeling a bit like the holidays, 'cause we just got a present we've been wanting for years. A legendary clip of a practical joke Steven Spielberg played on Harrison Ford, long thought a rumor, is REAL ... and has resurfaced online.

We'd always known of a supposed Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom gag played on Ford during which Carrie Fisher and Barbra Streisand were brought on set to surprise—and, in Streisand's case, whip—the actor. But we were never sure whether it had ever actually happened—or if it had happened, whether it had been filmed. But—it exists!

Check out the (extremely) grainy footage below, and since the audio has also deteriorated, make sure to read the transcript, too.

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 is 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..."

Grainy or not, deteriorated or not, this clip is golden! (Well, aside from Streisand's last line. Barbra, how could you!)
