Indiana Jones, James Bond draw new dividing line in British politics
London, June 25 : 'Indiana Jones' and 'James Bond' films not only rule cinema aficionados' minds, but also those of top British politicians.
While Prime Minister Gordon Brown is a huge fan of Indiana Jones, Conservative leader David Cameron just can't resist watching Bond movies again and again.
Brown revealed his liking for the daredevil archaeologist played by Harrison Ford during a recent interview, when he was asked who was his favourite, Indy or Bond.
"Indiana Jones, Indiana Jones, but I still like James Bond," the Telegraph quoted him as telling Total Politics magazine.
When Cameron was asked the same question, he replied: "I'm a big Bond fan. I think I've probably seen every Bond film more than three times, which is quite tragic. I even caught a bit of From Russia With Love yesterday on ITV7 or somewhere."
The newspaper report says that psychiatrists may find the two leaders' choices of film characters for their studies, for they may provide hints about the personalities of the politicians.
The report also suggests that many people are surprised to find that Cameron is a huge fan of the spy who prides himself on his impeccable British upper-class credentials.
Indiana Jones is an all-American hero who has been reincarnated after an almost twenty year absence. His latest film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, has been a box office hit.
James Bond has also been regularly reinvented.
