‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’: 30 years later, a stuntman’s memories


Not related to investing? Okay, I agree. But I am a huge fan of the first Indiana Jones movie that I could not help myself. As a kid I remember watching a behind the scenes show about how they did the stuntwork for the movie, found it fascinating. If I did not have an aversion to pain I would have liked to have given this line of work a try. :)


In an attempt to redeem this post, make it relatable to investing, I have devised the following:

Investing lessons from the first Indiana Jones movie:

1) Sometimes, even when dealing with a trusted company you will get a raw deal.

Throw me the idol. No time to argue! Throw me idol, I'll throw you the whip!

2) It always pays to do a little more DD.

If they knew we were here, they would've killed us already.

3) Don't let arrogance stand in the way of a well thought decision.

You can't do this to me, I'm an AMERICAN.

4) Trust your gut.

 I got a feeling I'm not the first woman to travel with these pirates.

5) If nothing has changed to the fundamentals of your investment don't panic in a downturn.

Marion, don't look at it. Shut your eyes, Marion. Don't look at it, no matter what happens!

One of my English professors in college resembled Harrison Ford to an uncanny degree. He was a brilliant professor who also was very manly. I met my future husband in his American Realism class so over all it was a positive experience.
