    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. :)

    It was, but I also wouldn't care if it was 1935. Why do you?
