Kate Capshaw Signed Willie Indiana Jones Display

"You're gonna get killed chasing after your damn fortune and glory!"

 

This superb display includes a highly collectible officially licensed still from Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom together with the signature of Kate Capshaw who portrayed Willie Scott. Kate went on to marry the legendary Steven Spielberg. Like Indiana Jones  and Short Round , the character is named after a pet dog: Willie was the dog of Spielberg. Scott's full forename as Wilhelmina is both a nod to the Wilhelm scream , the stock sound effect used in all four theatrical Indiana Jones  pictures, and the character's piercing cries.

 

Wilhelmina Scott was raised on a farm in Missouri, but from a young age her ambitions lay firmly in Hollywood . While her parents were poultry farmers, one of her grandfathers had been a stage magician.Having won a beauty contest, she tried to make a career as a singer, dancer, and actress, but was unable to break into the American film industry during the Great Depression , and struck out in Chicago  and New York City [2] . Scott escaped to the Far East, where she landed roles in several Shanghai  productions. Her efforts earned her the attention of local crime lord Lao Che , who hired her as a singer for his popular nightspot, Club Obi Wan. It was of course here where she would meet Indy....

 

The second Indiana Jones film was set in 1935. This time Indy teams up with a night club singer named Wilhelmina "Willie" Scott and a twelve-year-old boy named Short Round. They end up in an Indian small distressed village, where the people believe that evil spirits have taken all their children away after a sacred precious stone was stolen! They also discovered the great mysterious terror surrounding a booby-trapped temple known as the Temple of Doom! Thuggee is beginning to attempt to rise once more, believing that with the power of all five Sankara stones they can rule the world! Now, it's all up to Indiana to put an end to the Thuggee campaign, rescue the lost children, win the girl and conquer the Temple of Doom.
