The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932)

The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932)

The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932)This is a really great movie. Boris Karloff is top notice as the fiendish Fu Manchu and Myrna Loy is beautiful as his evil daughter. The archaeologists in this one are not the sharpest bunch and are hacks for the British Secret Service.

Krippendorf's Tribe (1998)

Krippendorf's Tribe (1998)Krippendorf's Tribe (1998) is a great comedy about an anthropologist.
4Stargate (1994)Stargate (1994) shows Kirk Russell at his toughest, although the archaeologist is the somewhat goofy Daniel (James Spader).

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) not only has Ford, it has Sean Connery too.
2Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) has Harrison Ford as Indie and that's the reason we all went into archaeology anyway.

The Mummy (1932)

The Mummy (1932)

The Mummy (1932)I have selected this as the greatest Archaeologist/Anthropologist movie of all time. This was a hard choice because I love Indiana Jones. However the fact that this movie used real events and gave a better view of the scientific process, The Mummy (1932) is truly the greatest.
