    And here's a shot from the Ponderosa set from Bonanza, right around 1968 or so. Who knew that most of that ranch was on a sound stage on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood? Whole bunch of Mole-Richardson 2K lights on the left.

    And here's a side of the Jaws shark we never saw in the 1975 film, shot throughout the early summer and fall of 1974:

    Famously, the shark never worked very well, which forced Spielberg and editor Verna Fields to only show the creature in very short pieces, plus a lot of atmospheric underwater "shark's-eye-view" shots, which wound up making the film more suspenseful than if we had seen a lot of the shark. I've followed the Jaws story for many years and never seen a photo this clear.
