It is known. He said in an interview once, it was always meant to be a series of feature length films. The TV station wanted hour long episodes so he had to invent the bookends which he never liked...

I rememeber thinking LC was weak in comparison to Raiders at the time, certainly the action, however it is very entertaining and the dynamic of Connery and Ford is very good and the ending of the...

Really, wow. I suppose they were thinking of his age, but why would he want to come out of retirement for that.

Yes the block is the thing. HJ without the block is just a name, as the business has changed hands several times over the years. Unlike say Wested, who had Peter Botwright still running Wested until...

Size 42 Relic hunter is a 23.5 backlength. Which is about the movie length and size. Sleeves are 25 3/4

I think they do custom options, but I would leave the backlength alone personally.

The custom LC and OTR jackets are based on the Crystal Skull pattern, even then the collar is a strange hybrid that is neither LC or CS.
