Answer Indiana Jones, Fictional Adventurer * Born: 1981 * Birthplace: The Movies * Best Known As: Star of Raiders of the Lost Ark Indiana Jones first appeared in the 1981 movie Raiders of the Lost Ark and went on to become an enduring hero of movies, TV and video games. As played by Har…rison Ford, Jones was an intrepid, fist-fighting archaeologist who wore a fedora and carried a bullwhip while racing the Nazis to unearth the lost Ark of the Covenant. The movie was the brainchild of George Lucas (who first dreamed up the character) and Steven Spielberg (who directed). Ford starred in two sequels: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989, with Sean Connery as Indiana's dad). An episodic television series, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, ran from 1991-93; it starred Sean Patrick Flanery as the teenaged Jones and Corey Carrier as the very young Jones. Lucas announced in December of 2006 that a fourth film in the series, once again starring Harrison Ford as Jones, would be released in May of 2008. Jones's full name is Henry Jones, Jr.... Ford had earlier starred in the Lucas films American Graffiti (1972) and Star Wars (1977)... The original movie spawned a brief public craze for fedoras and the "Indiana Jones look"... Spielberg's wife Kate Capshaw co-starred in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom... Reportedly Jones got his name from a dog, Indiana, owned by George Lucas and his then-wife Marcia. (MORE)
Indiana Smith . The character was originally named Indiana Smith, after a dog Lucas owned in the 1970s; however Spielberg disliked the name "Smith", and Lucas casually suggested "Jones" as an alternative
In Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, his father calls him "Junior" and he hates it! In addition, in 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' Indy hates being called Henry, as well as Junior, because he was really named after his dad... It later explains he took the name Indiana from his dog because… he hated the name Henry. (MORE)
Indiana Jones has said on more than one occasion, "I hate snakes." He may or may not be afraid of them, but he detests them, and he makes this clear. He also hates rats.

Indiana Jones is never seen wearing a wrist watch in any of the movies. His father however, Professor Henry Jones Sr. has a pocket watch in "The Last Crusade".

Lego Indiana Jones came out for PlayStation 2, and its a really cool game. I recommend it, and I'm sure you will have a lot of fun playing it!
Raiders of the Lost Ark, followed by The Temple of Doom, and then The Last Crusade.
This is quite humerous. Although his real name is Henry Jones JR.,it was revealed in the third movie, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, that he calls himself Indiana after a dog. Indiana had fond memories with it and thus took on Indiana.. Indiana Jones' real name is Henry Jones Jr., named afte…r his father, who simply referred to him as "Junior". At a young age, he gave himself the nickname "Indiana" after the name of a favorite family dog. This is explained at the end of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". That movie starts with a flashback showing the main character as a teenager, where he is already using the nickname "Indiana". That flashback includes a scene in Indy's boyhood home where we glimpse a dog, which is likely his namesake. (MORE)
The first Indiana Jones movie made was Raiders of the Lost Ark, but the prequel was Temple of Doom.
Indiana Jones is the iconic main hero of a popular series of adventure movies from the 1980s: - Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) - Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) The films are set during the late 1930s and have Indiana Jones travelling… to exotic locations and fighting off various soldiers and "henchmen." (And he never travels alone: Jones is always in the company of some beautiful young woman!) All the while, Jones is questing for certain religious artifacts, each of which is revealed to have dangerous mystical powers! The character's full name is Dr. Henry Jones, Jr. ("Indiana" is a nickname which he took for himself), although he is referred to as "Indy" by his friends, "Dr. Jones" by his colleagues and simply "Jones" by his enemies. He is a well-liked college professer as well as an avid archaeologist. The man's most iconic features are his leather jacket, his fedora hat, his brown leather bullwhip, and his trusty revolver! The character of Indiana Jones was created by George Lucas (the Star Wars guy). A good friend of Lucas, Steven Spielberg, directed all three original Indiana Jones films, and Indiana Jones, himself, was played by actor Harrison Ford. After the success of the first three films, the adventures of Dr. Jones expanded to multiple mediums: there were novels written, comic books, several video games...even a pinball machine! George Lucas, himself, even produced a moderately successful television show which followed Indiana Jones as a young man. The "Indiana Jones adventure" format was so popular that it directly influenced the creation of many future film-, TV- and video game characters; such include the American adventurer Rick O'Connell (of "The Mummy" film-remake series) as well as the largely-forgotten female adventurer played by Tia Carrere in the TV show "Relic Hunter." Speaking of which, the adventures of Lara Croft in the "Tomb Raider" series were directly inspired by the Indiana Jones movies; some might even call Croft a "rip-off" of Indy! (The next-gen console adventure game series "Uncharted" also owes its existence to Dr. Jones.) Finally, the year 2008 saw the release of a long-awaited fourth installment to the Indiana Jones feature film series. Although the making of the film involved the same three people (Lucas, Spielberg and Ford) who brought us the original three films, this most recent movie just doesn't live up to its predecessors. In fact, it's awful! It hardly even works as a stand-alone film! Needless to say, it was a major disappointment for longtime fans of the series, and many (myself included) are disowning the film and pretending it "simply never happened!" So if you're not yet familiar with Indiana Jones, please DO NOT let "The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" be your introduction! Watch the originals first (start with "Raiders", it's the best!) and save the Skull for last (or better yet, just don't ever watch that one!) ;) (MORE)

From that point in the movie,Indiana Jones was then looking for three Sacred Stones called theSankara Stones. (MORE)

The Ten Commandments that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai were suppose to be in the Ark of the Covenant but when the Nazis opened it there was nothing but sand.I think the sand was the Ten Commandments reduced to rumble.

"Indiana" in the Indiana Jones movies is derived from the name ofIndiana's pet dog as revealed in the third installment of thefranchise, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) .Also, George Lucas, the author of the Indiana stories, had a dognamed Indiana in the 1970's. His dog was an Alaskan mal…amute, whichis the same breed of the dog in the movie. A dog of the same breedis seen in the scene where young Indiana brings the cross home.However, it is not the dog named, Indiana.
