Steven Spielberg - Can You Spot The Mistake From This Dutch Magazine 1984?


Rummaging through my old magazines I (re)discovered this gem from 1984.  It's a Dutch magazine with it's main focus on music, but from time to time big (event) films are reviewed as well.

I could show you the 8-page article, which is nicely written, but since it is in Dutch, I figure it won't be of much use to you unless of course you speak Dutch.

However, the thing that has bugged me ever since I saw the magazine on the shelf in '84, is why nobody on the staff of the magazine noticed this big mistake on the cover ?

I know Steven and George looked (a little) alike in those days, but hey, part of the job of a reporter is investigation, isn't it?

Even my daughter (who isn't into Spielberg  the way I am (but I don't blame her) immediately noticed the error, by just checking the glasses (Steven is wearing regular glasses is what she said, so I can be proud of her after all), so why didn't anybody in the editing department of the magazine take a bit of time to check the cover?

They can't blame the internet, for the simple reason that there wasn't any so the still must've come from stock.

I know it's not an answer, but than again, it's been bugging me for over 30 years...

There was another interesting item I noticed while re-reading the article.  It's the final line that awoke me.


It again proves that Steven had been working on the idea for Schindler's List ever since the early 80's.


Well, it was worth the long preparation and wait.

Ronny.

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.
