But can he act ? #GeorgeLucas


Recently we took a look at the various cameos of Steven Spielberg in front of the camera. Well, his pal George Lucas has also shown his face a few times in the spotlights. We could come up with a few stills, to prove that.

Spielberg and Lucas worked together on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and maybe that's why the teamed up together in this cameo as well. Both directors portrayed missionaries, portrayed in the background, who are waiting at the airport, the moment Indy tries to escape Lao Che by plane.


Another cameo where George is barely visible and not recognizable at all, 
is his bit-part in Spielberg's Hook
In one scene we see a couple floating in the sky, kissing each other. 
This couple is made up of George Lucas and none other that Carrie Fisher.


Lucky for us, George's next came gives us a very clear look at him. 
The film is Beverly Hills Cop 3, and the scene is one where a couple comes forward, 
rather disappointed, that their day out has turned into something of a disaster. 


Next is a film directed by the beard one himself: Star Wars, Episode II, Attack of the Clones.
In this scene playing in the Senate, we see two grey men in the right upper corner, 
played by George Lucas and (co)producor Rick McCallum. 
In The Phantom Menace, we could see E.T. and a few members of his family, 
who had a cameo in a scene, similar to this one.


In Episode III, Revenge of the Sith, Lucas decided to give us value for money, 
as far as his cameo was concerned. 
This time he played a part that even ended up on the credits: Baron N. Papanoida.


See you next time.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
