Harrison Ford’s personal heavily-annotated complete shooting script for Raiders of the Lost Ark. (Paramount Pictures, 1981) Harrison Ford’s original cloth-board bound complete revised fifth-draft script for Raiders of the Lost Ark. This incredible piece is Harrison Ford’s own personal on-set shooting script, used throughout the film, complete with color revision and daily hand-typed dialogue pages (showing folds and wear from carrying in Ford’s pocket). The majority of pages are individually rubber stamped “ROLA 103020” for security control purposes. Contains 145 pages, of which 112 sides have hand-annotations (over 1,300 words) penned by Ford in his distinctive block capital style of writing. Notes range from single words to complete pages of writing and cover all aspects of the film making process, ranging from dialogue alterations and questions about the plot to suggestions and perspectives used to create the iconic character of “Indiana Jones”. Of specific interest are: • Ford’s concern about avoiding references to “Han Solo”-like behavior. • A list of hat related superstitions. • The dialogue for the famous line: “there’s a big snake back here”. • Notes asking, “what exactly is a headpiece to a staff of ra?”• Direction suggestions on a number of scenes (Hawaii plane sequence, Tanis dig, etc.)- Thoughts about the depiction of drunken behavior (a side of the character that was eventually removed from the film). • Suggestions for background reading books (such as Temple of Solomon). Sitting loose inside the rear cover is the in-flight magazine of the airline that carried Ford to one of the filming locations. This script was gifted by Ford to his driver upon completion of the film and remains in fine condition, with light wear and stains to covers, exhibiting normal signs of daily, on-set use. Arguably the greatest script in modern cinema, forging the character of “Indiana Jones” which would become one of the greatest icons in film history. In 2010, Indy stands as #2 on Time Magazine’s greatest fictional character of all time—surpassed only by “Sherlock Holmes”.
For an extra treat change the darkness on some of the pages and direction in one case!
Wow. I hope whoever buys it for $50,000 scans the rest! The fifth draft of Raiders ought to turn up someday, but Ford's notes are priceless. "Abner's dead?" I wonder that too. And discussing the ark causes "willies" and a gust of wind like they considered for the warehouse scene. Awesome find, Rocket Surgeon!
great idea!!! btw, anybody knows WHY Indy uses a tie in LC an in this adventure?
The tie was related to the dress code Indy has to use when he came into castle Brunwald as a lord and it was the dress code he has to use, when he flew out of germany by the airship.
Maybe afterwards, when he slips into his "lion tamer outfit" he didn't have enough time to remove it - and of course, maybe it is a kind of respect he would show to his father? (But IMO I don't really like the Indy-tie-outfit)
(There's so much nice digital stuff in this thread! So, sorry for off-topicing )
