It's hard to see, since the crowd is swarmed around them, but you're right they do ,do over the shoulder shots. When the two are closing in on each other the height of the men on either side of Sheard don't change when Ford and him are face to face. It seems both times when they go over Sheard or Ford's shoulders, Sheard has the advantage. I don't completely know the ins and outs of camera trickery in movies so I guess it's possible Sheard is shorter, either way it's kind of comical they made a shorter historical figure look so imposing on the big screen.

Just watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Sheard has a cameo as Hitler in the Berlin book burning/march scene. Ford gets pushed up by the crowd to stand face to face with Sheard, and Sheard looks taller than Ford by almost an inch. Either this guy was wearing monster lifts or his height is completely off.

[Editor Rob: did you see the ground ;-) Actually, from memory I think they switch from close-up to over the shoulder (of sheard) shot and there you see the discrepancy in height between the two setups...]
