There are plenty of iconic photos to come out of film production and promotion. Most of these photos are staged, with the actors playing a character. Plus, they don”t show the hard work of the director and crew, who are responsible for creating those iconic shots in the first place.

Luckily for us, there is photo documentation of the other side of the film. These are charming to look at not only because you can see a film taking shape, but also because they show the actors taking a break from playing their characters. These photos capture the making-of process from films throughout the years.

These photos provide a window into the world the very real world behind the film, and give us a little peek as to how those movie worlds are created. They”re the closest thing to being on the set without actually having to show up for a shoot.
