  1. Spielberg nods to some real anthropological and archaeological history and has Indiana Jones clashing with McCarthyism and the FBI in his latest adventure. Today’s LA Times says:

    “Koepp’s script also had to get the approval of Harrison Ford, who probably enjoyed getting to play his own age in a story set at the height of the Red Scare in 1957, when Marshall College’s Professor Jones, believe it or not, runs afoul of the FBI and has his patriotism questioned.” (http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-et-jones19-2008may19,0,5905300.story )

  2. Saw the bootleg dvd version lastnight and the FBI and McCarthyism scenes had be wondering the same thing.
