Picture Trivia
In was in 1981 when Harrison Ford played the role of Indiana Jones that will leave a lasting impression in the minds of movie fans. This was in the film Raiders of the Lost Ark. Do you know that George Lucas initially didn’t want Ford to play the now iconic role? Just like the Stars Wars Trilogy, George Lucas teamed-up with Steven Speilberg in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Speilberg like Ford to play the role of Indiana Jones, but Lucas wants Tom Selleck instead. Later, Lucas was persuaded to accept Ford when Selleck declined. The rest is history.
