It's been more than 30 years since Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) first globe-trotted around the world in search of precious relics from antiquity and, thanks to the popularity of the four movies chronicling his exploits, the character has transcended film to become an enduring part of our American culture. Even the least knowledgeable of movie buffs know that Indiana loves his hat, hates snakes, and relishes saving artifacts from the fiendish clutches of the Nazis.
Throughout the years, dozens of real-life adventurers have been offered up as the inspiration for the character, but if any of them truly did serve as the basis for Indiana Jones we may never know because creators George Lucas and Steven Spielberg aren't talking. One of the most recent additions to the list is also one of the most controversial because this "Indiana Jones" actually worked for the Nazis.
