Continuing with yesterday’s themes of Peru and cool costumes, I direct your attention to the acting instructions issued to Harrison Ford, in preparation for his role as Indiana Jones, which recently sold at Sotheby’s auction, and are reported to read:
Rent Secret of the Incas, from 1954, wow, what a flick. Study Charlton Heston as Harry Steele, a noble yet wayward American adventurer grifting in an exotic foreign land. Imitate Heston.
See you on set,
P.S. Wardrobe has been copied. We are going to make you look like Harry’s spitting image, you know what I mean, Harry?—I mean, Harrison? haha Hope you like hats.”
Yma Sumac sings in the film, which is set in Peru, a lot of it shot at Machu Pichu.
