Behind The Scenes: The Rocketeer (1991)

After finally getting my hands on a Rocketeer action figure based on the film adaptation from 1991, it seemed the right time to share this behind the scenes photo of Director Joe Johnston and Bill Campbell having a chat in between takes on the Bulldog Cafe set.

Maybe they are talking about how best to approach the scene where Cliff Secord (Campbell) is about to reach for a ketchup bottle to smash against a thug’s head?
