Indiana Jones (Indy), 1981

1981, the year when it all started. Dr Henry "Indiana" Jones Jnr (Indiana Smith was the name of George Lucas' pet Alaskan Malamute pooch) was played by none other than Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford who was not actually cast for the role which was originally meant for Tom Selleck!! In the opening scene, Satipo (played by Alfred Molina - Doctor Octopus of Spiderman 2 fame) gets covered in tarantulas when they enter the cave, how ironic is that!
