Revealing Behind-the-Scenes Photos from ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’

For most of us, Raiders of the Lost Ark was a childhood staple of adventure and movie magic as only the tag team of Stephen Spielberg and George Lucas could create it. But while the melting head of a Nazi agent once terrified and fascinated us, we’re no longer quite as impressed with the visual effects, except for their abundant early-80s charm. That said, we’re still tickled over these behind-the-scenes photos dug up by Retronaut, which feature Harrison Ford moodily taking direction, cast and crew hanging out on set, and that famous golden idol looking a little less golden. It’s as close as we can get to getting the gang back together. After the jump, see a few of our favorite shots, and head on over to Retronaut to see even more.
