Indy is arguably one of the most influential pop culture icons of the adventure film genre. His archaeological exploits shone light on the more adventurous (however fictitious) experiences of a history professor who moonlights as an archaeologist, hunting down lost treasures of the ancient world. But no matter how many times you watch the legendary flicks, we bet you won’t know some of these little factoids.
When it comes to the “damsel in distress”, Kate Capshaw a.k.a. Wilhelmina “Willie” Scott is perfect! However her character names comes from a rather interesting origin – Willie Scott was actually named after a dog, Steven Spielberg’s actually.
Remember the paw-fect scene when Indy’s dad goes, “We named the dog Indiana.” Yeah, well, guess where the name ‘Indiana’ came from? No, not another one of Steven’s but rather George Lucas’ dog, who also inspired the Chewbacca prototype costume.
