Category: Random Movie Facts

To get into the movie business, instead of actually going through film school (as he was rejected repeatedly), Steven Spielberg had a different method… He would hop onto the tour for Universal Studios, and then wander off, eventually finding an empty office, where he set up a desk and a phone where he began to work as a part of the staff, without actually being apart of the staff. Lucky for him, he wasn’t kicked out; the Universal Executives actually liked how intensely committed he was to film, and from then on, he started making his first independent movies, such as Duel, and Sugarland Express. Sugarland Express is what ended up land him the position of directing the horror classic “Jaws”, which was his claim to fame.

Producer Frank Marshall appeared in Raiders of The Lost Ark in a small cameo role when the stuntman was unavailable to do the scene (he was sick). The scene where this occurs is when Indy is fighting the random buff Nazi guy on the rotating war plane.
