Behind The Scenes: Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)

With that great Muppets artwork inspired by Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade posted earlier today by the Retroist, I couldn’t help but share this behind the scenes pic of the original film from Quint over at Ain’t It Cool News!

It looks like we have a quiet moment between takes with Karen Allen and Steven Spielberg on what must be the Cairo set.

Thanks as always to Quint as well as to Alexandre Poncet for submitting the photo to Ain’t It Cool in the first place.

    Little known fact that Steven spent the whole shoot shirtless. And, although you can’t tell from this photo, pantless too.
