  • British cinematographer Douglas Slocombe began his career as a journalist and still photographer. He began working with motion pictures during WWII as a newsreel cameraman. Following the war, he began working as a director of photography for Ealing studios; he worked with them for 17 years on some of their most prestigious films. Slocombe left Ealing in the early '60s to work as a freelance cinematographer; he came to Hollywood a decade later to film many large-budget films such as Jesus Christ Superstar (1973) and The Great Gatsby (1974). He filmed the first three Indiana Jones films, receiving an Oscar nomination for Raiders of the Lost Ark. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) was his final film; Slocombe died in 2016 at age 103.
