I'll admit I've only had a cursory experience with Dr. Jones, having watched a bit of Raiders
and the first third or so of Temple
(in my choir class for some reason; I think there must've been a sub that day) but they definitely seemed like good movies. I'm not sure, however, if Jones deserves to be listed as the second-greatest hero in American cinematic history
(above Rick Blaine
), although he's certainly cool. I'm told that the famous scene where he just shoots the swordsman
was ad-libbed by Ford because he hurt his foot that day (or something) and couldn't do a big swordfight.
By the way, has anyone here heard the rumor that Spielberg, Lucas, and... that third guy whose name I can't remember originally intended Jones's Fatal Flaw
to be "touches little girls
?" What's up with that? Was it serious, a joke, or...?
