: i thought the special effects used to make donovan age so fast were very good. they did it by blending the scenes seamlessly. the scene in raiders when they opened the ark was great.
Check out the excellent books "From Star Wars To Indiana Jones" and the second Industrial Light and Magic volume for details on how they did that scene. I believe it was one of the earlier uses of computer morphing techniques, with three different models of the head at different stages of decomposition.
