The Look Of Indy | The Colours
The Colours

"Indiana Jones has a very tight colour palette. In other words, it's not accidental that he wears earth tones; it's not accidental in the film when you see him as a professor and he's wearing brown tweed with glasses. We tried to keep him accessible, vulnerable, warm, attractive. He's sexy but not cold or frightening. Somebody once said about Clark Gable that he was a man that men wanted to be and that women wanted to be with, that was my feeling and my take about Indiana Jones... It's all the colour of the earth. Because he digs, it's his camouflage. I wanted Indiana Jones to be able to disappear into the earth. It suits him in his detective work, it suits him when he wants to disappear from intruders."
