I am a big fan of Indiana Jones. Those movies are one of the reasons I decided to study history. Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade are my two favorite of the movies. I never was a huge fan of Temple of Doom, but after seeing Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I like Temple of Doom much better. My favorite part of the movie is the opening sequence when Kate Capshaw as Willie Scott sing a Mandarin version of the Cole Porter classic, “Anything Goes.”
USA Network is showing all four Indiana Jones movies today, and I am enjoying each one of them all over again. It not only reminds me of my childhood, but also why I love history so much.
