In 1952, Ronald Reagan starred in a now little known film called Hong Kong. While it wasn't the rollicking adventure that Indiana Jones is, Lucas and Spielberg seem to have lifted something VERY important from Reagan's obscure picture:

Jones was loosely based on several real life characters, particularly Roy Chapman Andrews http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Chapman_Andrews and The character is more based on Serials that were based on his adventures.

I was born in 1955, but I'm an old movie buff. And I like most of Reagan's old movies, even the "Brass Bancroft" series. :)

I saw it on AMC when it still showed classics and did not have a commercial every 5 minutes. I really do not remember anything from the movie.
