The Look Of Indy | The Inspiration
The Inspiration

"One of the first things that we did was that [Steven Spielberg] showed me Secret Of The Incas, which was a Paramount movie made in 1954. It's very much what Raiders Of The Lost Ark is based on. The character that Charlton Heston plays in that movie, Harry Steele, has a lot of the components of Indiana Jones. It's very, very close to Raiders Of The Lost Ark, the only difference is - and it's a huge difference - is that Charlton Heston's character is really a jerk; he's a cold, conniving smuggler of ancient objects, there's absolutely no warmth there, he is not a hero, whereas the character of Indiana Jones certainly is a hero, he certainly cares about the mystery and magic of the places that he goes to. So we started talking about Saturday morning serials, we were looking at Alan Ladd movies from the Forties and Fifties. In fact, one of the wonderful things that I own is a sketch that Steven did of the character of Indiana Jones, it looks like a boy of 12's idea of what Indiana Jones should look like with the hat and the jacket, it's lovely."
