Footnotes

  • Bill Pearson was the Alien Modelshop Supervisor throughout the production of the film. The miniature engine room featured in an establishing shot of the Nostromo, to show Ripley setting the ship to self-destruct to eliminate the Alien while she and Jones the cat escape in the ships shuttle lifeboat.
    To achieve this illusion a rear projection was lit behind the miniature and an insert of Ripley's character was put into the models windows.
