Can North Korea's missiles deliver an atomic weapon to the U.S. mainland? Maybe.

Harrison Ford

By Patrick Kevin Day, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer When he debuted in 1981, Indiana Jones was never meant to be a wholly original character. He was a throwback, an homage to the cliffhanger heroes of yesteryear. His appearance and personality owed a debt to everyone from Humphrey Bogart to James Bond. But somehow, from out of those purposely unoriginal seeds, formed something that was unique. And when Hollywood finds something unique -- espeically when it does the kind of business Indiana Jones did -- it gets copied and cloned and ripped off in every way imaginable. To see just how influential Indiana Jones became, take a look at these pretenders to the bullwhip. Then read the Times' review of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."
