The Filmmakers: George Lucas and Steven Spielberg

The Indiana Jones movie franchise was produced by George Lucas and directed by Steven Spielberg. If you are a fan of these movies we suggest you do two things. You can go to Destination Hollywood's tributes to George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and you must watch this video.

You will learn fascinating things about the making of Indiana Jones including:

  • That George Lucas' brain came up with the ideas for Star Wars and Indy at the same time. What a mind!

  • That Indiana Jones was originally called Indiana Smith.

  • That George Lucas had a beautiful Malamute dog named Indiana and that's who the character was named after.

  • That George Lucas and Steven Spielberg agreed to make the movies together on the beach in Hawaii.

  • That you can see a screen-test for Tom Selleck and Sean Young playing Indy and Marion.

  • That Harrison Ford had to take lessons to learn " whipcraft".

    It's a great video.
