Movies That Inspired Steven Spielberg And George Lucas To Make Raiders Of The Lost Ark 1981

Recommended Posts

I’ve got a few requests.  I would like to see some movies that actually inspired Steven Spielberg and George Lucas to make Raiders Of The Lost Ark sometime.  I think that would be really cool.
 

China 1943.

Secret Of The Incas 1954.

King Soloman’s Mines 1950.

The Naked Jungle 1954 and

Gunga Din 1939.

 

It’s really neat to see how directors/creators actually come up with an idea for a franchise and the outfit Charlton Heston actually wore in Secret Of The Incas and the one the star wore in Gunga Din actually both look similar to the one Harrison Ford wore as Indiana Jones.

KING SOLOMON'S MINES has aired frequently on TCM.  I've watched it 3 times on TCM over the past couple of years.  GUNGA DIN has also aired on Turner Classic.  Recently, too. 

I don't recall offhand if THE NAKED JUNGLE, CHINA and THE SECRET OF THE INCAS have aired on TCM.

I don't think TCM has ever shown SECRET OF THE INCAS '54.

(A favorite movie because of the appearance of Yma Sumac)

Did the two actually confess that those movies were the inspiration?  Or are you assuming so because of many similar elements?
