Here’s a collection of 60 images including behind the scenes photos and promotional material from the production of Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979). I found many of these on Dennis Lowe’s website. He was one the film’s special effects technicians. I highly recommend checking out his site if you’re an Alien fan.
