Indiana Jones' Hat and Jacket

Indiana Jones first swept onto the silver screen during the summer of 1981 in "Raiders of the Lost Ark," and he's returned three times since in 1984's "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" and 2008's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Both skeptical academic and globetrotting archaeologist, Indy jumps from one adventure to the next, swinging his bullwhip and puzzling out the mysteries of the ancients all while rescuing damsels in distress and putting crooked treasure hunters out of business.

Fitting that one of Jones' signature lines was, "That belongs in a museum!" In 1989, Harrison Ford and Lucasfilm did right by the character and donated Indy's signature fedora and leather jacket to the Smithsonian. Later, in 1999, they made the museum a gift of his bullwhip as well.
