They Used Typewriters? And Other Epic Behind the Scenes Snaps from Raiders of the Lost Ark

A few months ago I went to see the iMax version of Raiders of the Lost Ark. It was phenomenal and remains to this day as one of my top ten all time favorite movies. Which is why I was thrilled to find this excellent collection of behind the scenes photos of the making of the movie on Screencrush via Kottke.

It’s hard to believe, but screenplays were written on typewriters. Which speaks to my consistent mantra that it’s the content, not the process that matters in writing. But that’s another sermon for another time.
