Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Ah, Marion Ravenwood. Le sigh. Unquestionably one of the best damsel in distress characters ever put to film. What makes her great is that she’s not passive about it. She isn’t Lois Lane in the Fleischer Superman toons (which I love, by the way), just sitting around waiting for the man to save her. At every point Marion is scheming or fighting. Whether it’s taking out a creepy looking henchman with a cast iron frying pan or liquoring up Belloq in her bid to escape, using his attraction to her against him, she’s just a smart character.
Today we check out Spielberg and Karen Allen on the set of Raiders of the Lost Ark… and one of them’s shirtless!
