Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
Raiders of the Lost Ark is not only one of my personal favorite movies of all time, it’s one of the most universally loved films in the history of the medium. My grandparents love it, my parents love it, I love it, my little brother 10 years my junior loves it. Even all his retarded friends love it.
Spielberg has made better movies, but there’s a magic to Raiders, a confluence of script, casting, time period, director, material and one of the biggest bolts of lightning ever captured in the history of bottled electricity.
I’ve already featured Raiders in this series and I will do so again, believe you me, but I love the composition of this shot… and as such a Jaws fanatic I find any image of Spielberg on the water captivating. Plus this image is the first of a pairing that will continue tomorrow. The second image was such an obvious follow-up I moved this Raiders shot up on the list significantly so I could pair them together.
Here’s the pic! Make sure to click for the much bigger version!
Thanks to Constant Reader “Betamax” for sending the image along!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic also stems Raiders and, in many ways, is the reason this one exists as we know it.
