Description
Belt loop used by Harrison Ford in the role of Indiana Jones, in one or more of the original trilogy of Indiana Jones films Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom, and The Last Crusade. The belt loop is made of leather with steel snaps, and was used for carrying a coiled bullwhip.
Filmmaker George Lucas conceived of Indiana Jones as a globe-trekking archeologist to pay homage to classic Hollywood adventure films. Jones is a reluctant hero who finds himself fighting evil-doers while seeking to preserve cultural heritage. The Indiana Jones series, directed by Steven Spielberg, is among the most successful movie franchises in American history.
