The Villains of Indiana Jones

When the American Film Institute created its list of best Heroes and Villains Indiana Jones was right at the top of the list in the number two Hero spot. Surprisingly not one of the evildoers he faces in his adventures made the best Villains list. Let's take a look and see who is the most evil of them all.

Raiders of the Last Ark

Dr. Rene Belloq (Paul Freeman) is Indy's rival. He works for the Nazis and gets his due when he is killed by the Ark

Major Arnold Thoht played by Ronald Lacey is a member of the Gestapo who tortures Marion. He will always be remembered for his death scene when the Ark makes his face melt off.

Colonel Dietrich (Wolf Kahler) is another evil Nazi killed by the Ark. His head implodes.

Just for fun ... watch all three get their comeuppance:

Temple of Doom

Mola Ram (Amrish Puri) is the evil high priest of the Thuggees and is a very bad man. He enslaves and beats children and rips the heart out of a living man's chest. He meets his end when he falls into the river and is torn apart by crocodiles.

The Last Crusade

It's the Nazis again. Walter Donovan (Julian Glover) works for them. He wants immortality but he ends up in a pile of dust.

Dr. Elsa Schneider (Alison Doody) seduces both father and son and is also in league with the Nazis. She falls to her death.

Adolf Hitler (Michael Sheard) makes an appearance and gives Indy an autograph.

The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Russians! Colonel Irina Spalko (an almost unrecognizable Cate Blanchett.) She'll stop at nothing to have knowledge and eventually her brain ignites and she disintegrates.

Besides evil people, Nazis and Russians Indy must deal with




Very Large Ants

And the most evil villain is . . . Adolf Hitler followed by Mola Ram and those very large ants.
