ford, spielberg and lucas on the set of indiana jones
if you’re a regular reader of to take the train, then you know my obsession with the indiana jones movies. i give steven spielberg and george lucas a lot of credit for shaping my imagination as a child. i always thought at some point in my life i would move to hollywood and start making movies for a living. there’s still time right?
over the holidays i saw spielberg’s new animated film the adventures of tintin – which reminded me a lot of indiana jones. i read spielberg discovered tintin when a review of raiders of the lost ark compared it to the long standing comic book written by belgian georges remi (who wrote under the pen name herge). spielberg bought the movie rights shortly after herge’s death in 1983 and re-optioned them in 2002. i enjoyed the film, but it made me crave more indiana jones movies.
when i got home from the theater, i went on a small quest to find inspiration in some behind the scenes photos of speilberg, lucas, and ford on the set of the indy movies. i definitely found it in the following photos. don’t worry i’m not going all safari shirts and bomber jackets in 2012, but come spring you might find a few things from these photos that have made their way into my personal style.
and where can i get one of these raiders of the lost ark hats.
