Evidently the fourth Indiana Jones film used a little too much history in its mysterious alien crystal skull tale! As they told us, there are only four known crystal skulls in the world. One of them is getting Disney and Paramount sued!
Dr. Jaime Awe, director of the Institute of Archaeology of Belize has brought suit on a number of parties on behalf of Belize. He is seeking the return of the Mitchell-Hedges skull and damages for use of its likeness. The Mitchell-Hedges is the missing fourth skull and was mentioned in the Indiana Jones movie. Awe claims the movie skull bears a striking resemblance to the original.
F.A. Mitchell-Hedges traveled to Belize in the early 1920s. His adopted daughter Anna Mitchell-Hedges is alleged to have first discovered a Crystal Skull under a collapsed altar while exploring temple ruins in Belize. She reportedly disclosed this in a documentary that aired on the Sci Fi Channel (now Syfy) in 2008. The skull is described as 5 inches high, 7 inches long and 5 inches wide. It was taken to the U.S in 1930, then travelled with the father to England and remained there until his death in 1959, after which it was kept by the daughter and later the daughter's husband in Indiana. The family is said to have made money exhibiting it
