Behind The Scenes: William Friedkin’s Sorcerer

Here is six minutes of rare 8mm behind the scenes footage of “Sorcerer” shot in New Jersey. This is the Roy Scheider/Jackie Scanlon sequence of the film and it is well worth watching if you are fan. “Sorcerer” is often described as a remake of the French classic “Wages Of Fear” but it is actually more a re-imagining of the film. Both films only have basic plot elements in common each other. Both are excellent and well worth watching.
