Take a Steven Spielberg-Guided Tour of the Universal Studios Hollywood Lot

If you’re going to tour the Universal Studios Lot, why not do it in style with the king of blockbusters himself, Steven Spielberg? All right, you can’t actually do that, but you can watch a video of someone doing it with him. With The BFG opening this Friday, Spielberg has given a guided tour of his “ancestral home” at the Universal Studios Hollywood lot.

In the video, he talks about sneaking in as a teenager, where he’d watch the filming of TV shows and movies, seeing Hitchcock in person, and getting kicked off the Torn Curtain set by a third AD. He shows, among others, locations used for Back to the Future, which he executive produced, the infamous Bates Motel, “the best used back lot” for Westerns in the ’50s and ’60s, and, of course, the set used for Jaws, part of which he utilized after the film to cope with his self-described PTSD, and his impromptu meeting with Marlon Brando.

See the tour below (via EW), along with behind-the-scenes footage from The BFG, an interview with Spielberg on the film, and our review of it here:
