The 30 Reasons Why We Love Indy | 19. Steranko
19. Steranko

Known as Jim to his mum, Steranko is the graphic artist we have to thank for the look of Indiana Jones. Employed to do some development work on Raiders, Steranko came up with a number of paintings of what he imagined Indy's world to look like. The sand-swept, dynamic pictures he produced set the visual tone for the movie and his painting of a square-jawed, hat-wearing, khaki-clad adventurer became the blueprint for the character. He's arguably deserving of as much credit for creating the character as Spielberg, Ford and Lucas.

Odd dates too. A 40yo would have barely been 10 when Raiders came out so for it to be as successful as it was (top 20 inflation adjusted box office of all time) it clearly had a much wider appeal than a bunch of 10yos.    Also - slightly sexist. Not all Empire reviewers are male. More

Glad to see this article focuses mainly on the original trilogy and not on that bag of sh*te Skull. And what was that bit about Spielberg 'using practical effects and stuntmen wherever possible' on the 4th film?? Ants? Jeep swordfight? Waterfall? Aliens? Spaceships? Magnetic gunpowder? Fridges? Pyramids? MONKEYS!!!!!!! Christ it's difficult to think of a scene where Lucas.....sorry Spielberg DIDN'T use any CGI. Hang on....was Ray Winstone real or was he this film's Jar Jar Binks?....cos he was equally as annoying! More

9 Marcus Brody?
I'm biased obviously but surely he deserves an entry here? And Pat Roach deserved his own entry! More

10 Pat Roach
The late great Pat Roach kicking Indys arse in three different characters is the reason alone to love Indy trilogy. And the reason why Kindom of the Crystal Scum sucked so badly. No Pat equals no good Indy movie. More
