Not only was scouting featured in "The Indiana Jones Chronicles," the
TV show, but it was also very prominently featured in the third
Indiana Jones movie (the one with Sean Connery where they're looking
for the holy grail). The whole opening sequence involves the young
Indiana Jones (in boy scout uniform) trying to get a gold cross away
from some grave robbers in the American southwest.
Also, Steven Speilberg spoke at the 1989 national jamboree. The GW
district's Join Scouting Night video features him regaling the boys
with the story of the snipe hunt he went on during his first camping
trip, in which he was "initiated" into BSA.
Of course, in today's BSA, this is considered hazing (along with
asking a tenderfoot to find you a smoke shifter, tent stretcher or
plaid paint) and is not allowed. Still, it was a funny story!
