Description
This brown lambskin leather jacket was worn by Harrison Ford as the title character in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, released in 1989. The custom jacket was designed by Anthony Powell and Joanna Johnston for Last Crusade (based on the original jacket designed by Deborah Nadoolman Landis) and made by Peter Botwright for Berman’s and Nathan’s costumers in London.
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.
