Which famous movie character's name was inspired by filmmaker George Lucas's dog?
In Raiders of the Lost Ark, archaeologist Indiana Jones was named after George Lucas's dog named Indiana. The character was originally named Indiana Smith, after his dog Indiana, an Alaskan Malamute that Lucas owned in the 1970s. Spielberg disliked the name Smith, and Lucas casually suggested Jones as an alternative. In the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. admits to having taken for himself the name of the family dog, Indiana, of whom he had very fond memories.
