Does anybody know any Indiana Jones movie, in which a Leica is used ?

But what I was going to say is that I saw two Leica IIIc's at 
Disneyland.  They were in a glass cabinet with a bunch of dirty 
"explorer's gear" near the front of the queue for the Indiana Jones 
ride.  Both were dirty, and had apparently been dirtied 
on purpose.  Both had lenses attached; the one in front had what 
looked at a quick glance to be a collapsible Elmar.  The one in back 
was in an open ERC, but I didn't have time to get a look at the lens 
- - -- at Disneyland the line moves constantly, and we all must march.  

The cameras were not for sale; they were part of the scenery. 
Personally, I was quite disgusted to see IIIc's used in this way. 
At least they could have been Feds.
