Fan Gives His Home Office An Impressive Indiana Jones Theme

This Indiana Jones Themed Home Office Has Plenty of Fortune and Glory

Indiana Jones fan, Scott Rox contacted us and was eager to share a few photos of his latest home office setup.  You have to admit that is a rather cool Indiana Jones themed office.  Scott told us:

It's been a hobby of mine for the past 30 years.  Each time we moved I would set up a different display and this is what we came up with this time. The figure has undergone several changes as well with a new body this time around.  My first head was more like a caricature sculpt that a lady from New York did for me.  It was an okay likeness but not like this one.  I had a second head made which was from latex and looked okay but this was the latest that a guy had made from plaster then I had it painted by an artist.  Eventually you have to say good enough otherwise you can go crazy over this stuff.

We decided to add a sports theme to the theater and move the Indy theme to my home office.  I'm a chemistry professor so it was a good fit!  Fortunately, we had most of the things on hand and just decided to use some landscape blocks and various stones to put it together.  It gives me the look I wanted at least given the circumstances.

I love it!  There are some rather impressive props there.  Problem is I probably wouldn't get much work done with so much Indy goodness to look at.  I'm not the only one who likes it either.  William Shatner replied to Scott's tweet yesterday saying "Indiana Jones looks a bit stiff...You captured him."  Wait! What?



Thanks Scott for sharing your awesome office setup with us.  Scott has a Facebook page called "Indiana Jones and the Passion of the Christ."  Make sure you head over there and give it a like.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
