Spielberg On Spielberg

What made you finally embrace a fourth Indiana Jones movie?
It’s not for money or success. It’s for the good times. I’ve always said that I had the most fun in my life while making those three movies with George [Lucas] and Harrison [Ford]. It’s a very good story. It’s worth living that long to see!

Do you think your fans would like to see a sequel to ET?
ET was a very personal little picture. My motivation for making it was pure and non-profit based – I didn’t think it would be a hit because it was about kids and no films about kids under 18 were doing any business then. I wouldn’t make a sequel because it couldn’t be superior to the original and I don’t want to blemish a perfect picture.
