Indiana Jones had to go to the far reaches of the earth to find magical artifacts, but here they sit (along with the archaeologists trademark hat and whip) in an immaculate bookcase in the Main House. The cache of cinematic treasures on display includes Charlie Chaplins dimpled bowler and knobby cane, a whip used onscreen by Rudolph Valentino, an intricate crown from Legend, some light sabers and a collection of badges worn by the Keystone Kops. Theres also a battered old California license plate that reads 1T1H3X8its from American Graffiti and an allusion to THX1138, Lucas 1971 feature film debut.
