Yet more Behind the scenes from films of yesteryear...
Behind the scenes of Ishiro Honda’s “The War of the Gargantuas”, 1966.
A front view of the rotating set of the spacecraft Discovery One from 2001: A Space Odyssey, 1968. It was commonly referred to as "the centrifuge" set, better seen from the side. Essentially a giant ferris wheel, the centrifuge rotating set weighed 27 tons and had a diameter of 38 feet.
Bruce, the shark from JAWS, under construction, 1974.
Effects creators work on the star of The White Buffalo, 1977. This film has been left to history as a western Jaws meets Moby Dick, starring Charles Bronson and directed by Dino Di Laurentiis. It's as cheesy as you'd imagine. However, the buffalo was pretty amazing. It was designed and created by Carlo Rambaldi, who was at this point best known for creating 1976's King Kong. You might know some of his other work... mechanical head effects work on Alien in 1983 and designing the alien itself in ET in 1982.
Jack Nicholson propped up with 2x4s, foam blocks and a pillow to shoot the final scene from The Shining, 1980.
For the scene in 1981's Escape from New York where Snake Plissken flies a glider into the prison city that is now New York, the cops are keeping track of his progress on a computer screen. Technology wasn't advanced enough to make this look in any way believable, so the "computer" graphics you see are actually a model city, completely outlined in reflective tape and shot under blacklight. Here's the final scene:
Filming Lando's animatronic and puppeted co-pilot Nien Nunb for Return of the Jedi, 1983.
