97 Amazing Behind the Scenes Photos from Iconic Movies

"Behind the scenes" is a phrase used to describe what goes on during the production of a popular medium. Most commonly, it's used in reference to films. Every DVD menu has a behind the scenes featurette these days, but few capture magic moments of iconic films. What did it look like when Vader told Luke he was his father, when a man put on a Godzilla costume and what did Alfred Hitchcock look like smiling?

These are the best behind the scenes photos from iconic films such as Star Wars, The Godfather, Jurassic Park, Taxi Driver, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Indiana Jones, Vertigo and more (all of which appear on the Best Movies of All Time list). These behind the scenes pictures all illicit a feeling of nostalgia and wonderment at the making of something that has affected all of us.

These are all fascinating, beautiful and very humbling. Just seeing those living legends creating these milestones of our pop culture (whose dialogue has become the stuff of the the best movie quotes of all time) and seeing them hanging around like just people is something you don't get to see too often. So here are 100 amazing pictures of behind the scenes moments, taken beautifully, artfully, and here in one place for you to rank.
