: Who exactly was the inspiration for Indiana Jones?

: ~Arc

I can't name the guy specifically, but the original concept of Indy is partly based on an archeologist. He's also a "compilation" of all of the old adventure serials from the forties and fifties. A while back AMC showed a bunch of them and there were a few similarities, rather interesting.
Since then I'd say the Indy has pretty mych evolved into his own character. I'm sure some of the other Indyfans could tell you a lot more.
