He often claims to be the inspiration for Raiders of the Lost Ark, but he isn't. And Raiders was written by George Lucas and Phil Kaufman, not Randolph Fillmore.
It is typical of Jones that he sees himself as the personal messenger of the end of history. No other role would fit his ego.
So can the Israeli Defense Force carry it into battle and then the God of Abraham will smite all those palestinian and arab terrorists?
Sounds like a good deal to me.
My "crock detector" went off early during this article and kept sounding throughout.
Indy Jones, not Endy Jones. What a laugh. The whole family sounds like nutcases to me.
If we dug up the entire area, most people would still not believe.
I remember reading that Lucas named the Indiana Jones character after his cat.
Bingo. You fired that one on all cylinders.
George Lucas has 'borrowed' more stuff for his movies than almost anyone else. For example the lightsaber idea is basically a ripoff of the biblical 'flaming sword'.
"During the 1977 dig, Vendyl told the story of his quests to a free-lance American journalist, Randy Fillmore, who was working as a volunteer at the caves. The story became a screenplay entitled 'The Search of the Ashes of the Red Heifer.' The script changed hands and form several times before being lost in the 'Hollywood shuffle'."
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK
Screenplay by LAWRENCE KASDAN
Story by GEORGE LUCAS
REVISED THIRD DRAFT
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Directed by Steven Spielberg
Written by George Lucas, Philip Kaufman, Lawrence Kasdan
"George Lucas originally became involved in the project in 1977... Lucas had conceived of the idea in discussion with Philip Kaufman who had worked on a treatment. While on holiday with his close friend Steven Spielberg the pair worked out the basis for the film. At the time Spielberg's career was suffering due to the expensive bomb 1941 so it was agreed that Lucas would produce and Spielberg direct. A new screenplay was commissioned from Lawrence Kasdan."
