Indiana Jones and the Poison Pen Letter

Posted in Movies with tags on May 3, 2008 by funofmovie

Los Angeles (E! Online) – Indiana Jones has battled Nazis, escaped certain death and found the Holy Grail.

That apparently doesn’t impress J.D. Salinger, the reclusive author of Catcher in the Rye. Hollywood Deadline alerted us to a Salinger letter auctioned on eBay, in which the author describes his reaction to seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark:

“I got hooked into seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark, which might be excused for its unwitty, unfunny awful socko-ness if it had been put together by Harvard Lampoon seniors.”

Ouch. We actually liked the socko-ness, but what do you expect from the guy who wrote in Catcher in the Rye? “If there’s one thing I hate, it’s the movies. Don’t even mention them to me.”

At least he didn’t call Indy a phony.
