Today, with instant world communication, this probably doesn’t happen, but once upon a time…
I was siting today cleaning out my “junk closet.” Came upon old issues of “Starlog” magazine from about 77-82, roughly my teen and high school years. In those days I lived in a small town in southern KY, and such monthly mags were my only connection to the world of filmmaking.
In an issue it is simply announced that Lucas and Spielberg were teaming for a movie called “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Nothing else, no plot hints at all. I definitely recall thinking it might be about a “space ark” version of Noah, and perhaps it crashed on some planet and the inhabitants actually “raided” it. Of course, I soon learned that it was about some archaeologist, the Ark of the covenant and Nazis.
So, anybody else have some similar memory?
