Love the behind the scene and set photos especially when they come out for the movie which is becomes a legend now and having a cult following with cosplayers these pictures are a window in the past to know how much fun and hard work went in to make such a great movie and you may also see some never seen before footage which is exceptionally rare and in this case these are just priceless !

Thanks to the uploader for these amazing images and memories from one of my all time favorite classic !
