Welcome to FSR’s Official Guide to Indiana Jones!

Very few movie characters in history have become as iconic and recognizable as Henry Walton Jones, Jr., Ph.D. You know him as Indiana Jones, or more simply: Indy. In 1981, with the help of writers George Lucas, Philip Kaufman and Lawrence Kasdan, director Steven Spielberg brought this character to life for the first time in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Though actor Harrison Ford was Spielberg’s first choice for the role, it was Tom Selleck who was originally offered the part based on the will of George Lucas. But when Selleck was lost to take his role on the show “Magnum, P.I.”, Spielberg got his man and the world got one of it’s favorite heroes, Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones.
