God - just remembered that Dame Diana Rigg was also in one of my favourite horror films of the 70s; The Theatre Of Blood.

Very sad news about Diana Rigg.

She's closely followed by Toots from out of the Maytals. Saw them once about ten years ago and we both had a great time.
We never really die.

Ron's concept art for Arnold Ernst Toht (depicted as Christopher Lee) as a Nazi-Cyborg in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Lucas told Spielberg he was mixing genres so it was dropped.

I'd have thought the biggest danger would have been comparisons to Doctor Strangelove (etc).

Lucas or Spielberg were never shy about putting homages in their films. They’re the generation that wore their cine influences on their sleeve. Raiders is all ready a nostalgic mash-up of things they loved.

Fascinating!  Lucas was right of course, keeping both pulp heroes and villains as regular humans dealing with an external supernatural was the way to go, but it is amusingly ironic from the man that would add interdimensional aliens and flying saucers to the Indyverse.

And well before the indulgences of the Prequel era — Lucas’s outline for Indiana Jones and the Saucermen from Mars was put down in 1993. Double twist: it was Spielberg who had a problem with aliens.
