(p.293) Twelve “Rehab”
Steven Spielberg

Joseph McBride

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter details Spielberg’s relationship with actress Amy Irving; the making of the film 1941; and his collaboration with George Lucas in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Working as a hired hand for Lucas, Spielberg used Raiders of the Lost Ark as a form of professional “rehab.” It enabled him to assuage Hollywood’s fears that Raiders would turn out to be another 1941. But the result of this “rehab” was a soulless and impersonal film.

Keywords:   Steven Spielberg, Amy Irving, 1941
