Indiana Jones

Character

College professor and treasure seeking explorer in 4 films, some TV adaptations, and several video games. The character is played by Harrison Ford.

In 1977, anticipating poor critical response to his new space movie that was coming out, George Lucas skipped the premiere of "Star Wars" and hung out on a beach in Hawaii brainstorming with Steven Spielberg about the plot for another movie. That script became "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
