Did You Know?

… that there is an Official Indiana Jones Site.

… that The Temple of Doom was the film that inspired the creation of the PG-13 rating. Originally released with a PG rating, parents were horrified that their young children were subjected to the very violent scenes of the movie -- most especially the scene where Mola Ram rips a beating heart out of the chest of his victim. In response to the growing controversy, Steven Spielberg went to the ratings board and proposed the creation of a new "PG-13" rating which was retroactively applied to The Temple of Doom.

… that Dan Aykroyd had a very small cameo in The Temple of Doom. He appears at the airport at the beginning of the movie.

… that Indiana Jones producer Frank Marshall had a cameo in Raiders of the Lost Ark as the pilot of the plane that Indiana Jones and Marion try to steal. He would go on to be a prolific movie producing partner of Steven Spielberg as well as directing movies most notably Congo and Arachnophobia.

… that Denholm Elliott, the actor who portrayed Marcus Brody in The Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade, died in 1992. The filmmakers included a homage to this beloved character in The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. During the motorcycle chase scene at Indiana Jones' University a statue is crashed into and the metal head that topples into the lap of one of the bag guys is none other than our old friend Marcus Brody.

... that Indiana Jones has many fans and maybe one of the most creative is the man who runs this website which showcases the duplicate props from the movie that he has constructed. Prepare to be amazed

... If you visit the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D. C. you will be able to see the leather jacket and fedora hat worn by Harrison Ford in the movie.

... that Tom Selleck did not play the part of Indiana Jones because he had been cast in a new TV series called Magnum P. I. In the eighth and final season of the series they produced an episode called Legend of the Lost Art and Tom Selleck finally got to play an Indy character.

… British actor Vic Tablian appeared as two different characters in The Raiders of the Lost Ark. He can be seen as one of Indiana Jones' guides at the beginning of the movie and as the Monkey Man in the Cairo sequence:

… The first shot of every Indiana Jones movie is the Paramount logo that morphs into a mountain of some kind that is similar to the mountain in the Paramount logo:

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Temple of Doom

The Last Crusade

Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

... that the perfect theme music was written for Indiana Jones by John Williams.

... And in case you always wished there were words to the music. You should watch this

... A YouTube video maker will take you on the Indiana Jones Adventure at Disneyland.

... We know there are some people out there just like us who do not like roller coasters so here's a tip. If you find yourself at Disneyland, Paris and see a sign for the Indiana Jones Temple of Peril ride don't think it is going to be like the attraction in Anaheim. We were at the too late to turn back spot when we realized it is a scary roller coaster. It's okay. We did live to tell about it.

Hollywood Walk of Fame Star
In the early 1960's, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce developed the idea of the "Hollywood Walk of Fame." The sidewalks of the most famous streets in the heart of Hollywood were lined with "stars" recognizing celebrities' life-long contributions to the entertainment industry. Receiving a star is still to this day considered a huge honor. Here's where you can find Harrison Ford's star:
