A model miniature Indiana Jones fedora from Steven Spielberg’s adventure sequel Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Indy (Harrison Ford), Willie (Kate Capshaw) and Short Round (Jonathan Ke Quan) escaped the temple mines in carts, closely pursued by Thuggee guards.
The artists at ILM used a combination of live action interspersed with miniatures to create the mine cart chase sequence. The puppets were mostly animated via stop motion, with remote control utilized when the tiny sets restricted the crew’s access to the carts.
Made from vacuum-formed plastic and painted in the recognizable sable color. A small amount of glue residue remains where it was previously attached to a 10′ puppet of Indy. Measuring 2” x 1 3/4” x 3/4” (5 cm x 4.5 cm x 2 cm) and remains in very good condition.
This item comes with a Hero Prop Certificate of Authenticity.
