Raiders of the Lost Ark

A Tumblr blog entitled Cinephilia & Beyondhas uncovered a very interesting piece of movie memorabilia that fans of the Indiana Jones films will find very interesting: original pages from what looks to be a fifth draft screenplay for Raiders of the Lost Ark written by Lawrence Kasdan, complete with handwritten notes by star Harrison Ford.

You can check out those pages with the notes here below.

It is fascinating to see how actors and actresses approach their roles of varying size, be it the lead in a multi-million dollar film or the understudy to the fifth lead in an off-Broadway play. Constantin Stanislavski, the legendary Russian theater actor and director best known for being the grandfather of “Method” acting, once famously said, “There are no small parts, only small actors.” Great performers invest themselves in their characters with true dedication even if they’re only on camera for a brief scene.

Ford took the role of Dr. Henry Jones, Jr., aka Indiana Jones, seriously to the point where he annotated his script with detailed notes, including pertinent questions about the motivations of Dr. Jones and suggested dialogue alterations. To us humble viewers the character of Indiana may have seemed pretty cut and dry from page to screen, but there was a lot more going on underneath the swashbuckling surface. This is proof that Harrison Ford was about as committed to making the adventurous archaeologist as much of a three-dimensional human being as most actors headlining Oscar bait acclaimed novel adaptations. It would be nice to see that Ford come back to acting. Being grouchy and yelling just ain’t cutting the mustard anymore.
