"What remains frankly stunning is that the 1982 original managed to secure a PG rating in the States, after Spielberg leaned on the MPAA."

Is there proof of Spielberg doing such a thing? I only found one source: an IMDB claim that isn't cited. The reality of the day is that many, many films were PG because it meant Parental Guidance. Those films would garner an R rating today.

The following films were PG: Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars, Airplane, Gremlins, Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind, Rocky, Jaws, American Graffiti, Invasion of the Body Snatchers...etc.

The point is, PG films back then were considered inappropriate for young children.
