Good point, Toht's Arm, about avoiding the "modern day" look. It's a perfect circumvention.

Brilliant idea, Sab. (Although, I seem to recall something similar before in a movie; a sequence dealing with sound & a cracking ice floor. Could it have been one of the made-for-TV, "Librarian" movies?)

Personally, I'd like to see Indy somewhere in Northern Canada. With this scenario, Grey Cloud, from "Mystery of the Blues" (who lives in Alberta), could make an appearance.

Egads! I grew up with the original, "Poseidon Adventure", and have seen it more times than I can count. Love it!
