We named the dog Indiana.
The third installment of Steven Spielberg's classic Indiana Jones series, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, was released May 24, 1989. The film introduced fans to Indy's cantankerous professor father, showed us the origin story of Jones's hat, and most important, taught a whole generation the importance of having one's ticket readily available when traveling by zeppelin.

Kumar Pallana, an Indian character actor with small parts in movies such as The Terminal and The Royal Tennenbaums, died suddenly Oct. 10 at the home he shared with his son in Oakland, Calif. He was 94.
"He lived life to the fullest," said his daughter Sandhya Pallana of Dallas, who confirmed the death to the Associated Press. "It was really wonderful how well he was received and how well he was liked and that people appreciated his unique and creative style."
Pallana was a yoga instructor living in Dallas in the mid-1990s when he met Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson, who were working on their breakout movie Bottle Rocket, the Los Angeles Times reported. They cast Pallana as a bumbling safe cracker.
His thick accent and diminutive stature combined to help him steal scenes and earned him parts in more films, including three more directed by Anderson and one by Steven Spielberg.
