Indiana Jones Wiki

Main Street was a thoroughfare which dominated the atomic bomb test site of Doom Town, Nevada. It passed through the town's residential area and also served as an entrance/exit to the settlement.

In 1957, Indiana Jones, unaware of the town's true nature, escaped into the backyard of the one of the houses on the street to evade a car of Soviet soldiers pursuing him. Jones then entered the house to find that the occupants, a nuclear family gathered together in the living room to watch The Howdy Doody Show, were nothing more than a group of mannequins.[1]

Realization setting in, the archaeologist headed out into Main Street and saw that all the townsfolk were dolls. When a tannoy suddenly announced that detonation was imminent both Jones and his Russian pursuers saw the atomic bomb suspended in a cradle nearby. The Soviets quickly abandoned their hunt and drove off using the main road, leaving Jones to head back into the house desperate for shelter.[1]

He found unlikely protection in 138 Main Street's kitchen's lead-lined King Cool refrigerator just in time: the atomic blast obliterated the town, including the street, while the fridge carried Jones away from the blast.[1]
