The latest Indiana Jones film is due on 5-22-08.  The fourth installment in the series features a compelling trailer.  Conspiracy fans take note of the screenshot below – taken from the trailer.  Roswell? Indiana Jones Roswell

Interesting twist. Watch the full trailer here.

Besides enjoying the first three films in the series when it was first released, I also have a closer connection to the story.  The (rumored) inspiration for Indiana Jones is the real-life paleontologist and explorer Roy Chapman Andrews.  Andrews was born in Beloit, WI and graduated from my alma-mater, Beloit College, in 1906.  He discovered the first fossilized dinosaur eggs and went on to serve as director of the American Museum of Natural History in NYC.

While attending Beloit, I helped to create an exhibit about Jones.  His widow was kind enough to loan us some prized artifacts from Andrew’s life including a revolver with notched butt (one for each kill) and his whip.  Take a look at a photo of Andrews and tell me if you see a resemblance with Dr. Jones.
