Dr. Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones, Jr., better known as Indy, is the main character of the Indiana Jones series of films. The character was conceived by George Lucas in homage to the popular serial films of the 1930s. In addition to his adventures, the Indiana Jones movies have also spawned a number of spin-offs, including the recent movie “Jack Reacher.”
Marion Ravenwood, Indy’s former flame, is a formidable opponent. A gregarious Egyptian excavator named Sallah is also a memorable addition. While many believe that magic is real, Indy doesn’t. He once saw a man’s heart being torn out during a ritual sacrifice and survived. Despite this, he doesn’t really believe in magical spells. The film was a big hit and earned him a place in history textbooks.
