Lightbulb Indiana Jones Crossword Puzzles

Here's a thread for anyone who can come up with some Indiana Jones crosswords. Test your Indy Trivia knowledge with this one!
Out of 101 questions, only 2 (perhaps 3) are not directly related to Indy so print this out when you get the chance and have a go.
The answers/solution will be posted in a week or two.

WARNING: "Harrison Ford only" fans might have a tough time.

Stoo, great job! It was lots of fun!

But I did find a mistake with 8 down and 33 across: Ka was not a pharaoh.

Here are some quotes from Curse of the Jackal.

Quote:
Rasheed Sallam: Ned. You're in luck! We've discovered a new tomb.
T.E. Lawrence: A pharaoh?
Rasheed: No. Not a pharaoh, I'm afraid. Still, everything is important, as Mr. Carter always says.

Quote:
Miss Seymour: The tomb you found yesterday, Mr. Carter...
Howard Carter: Ah, also 18th dynasty. But alas, not a king's. His name was Ka.
Indiana Jones: Ka?
Carter: Seems to have been some type of architect or engineer.

And finally, from Ka himself
Quote:
Ned (reading hieroglyphics): I was beloved of the pharaoh. As a reward for my great service he gave me the precious headpiece.

Not a big deal and easy to fix. Just reword those two clues a little. But I thought you should know.

Thanks for the heads-up on the mistake, Junior. I just realized another one in 83 Down.
"The Search for Abner" leads to Ra-Lundi and not Shangri-__.

I'm assuming you folks managed to complete it? If anyone wants the answers posted, just let me know.

Ha ha. I just listened to an IndyCast for the very 1st time about 2 hours ago.
Glad you like the puzzle. Welcome to The Raven, Rocket!

I think there's a kiddie-crossword in one of the now-defunct, Titan UK "Official Indiana Jones Comic" issues.
When I get the chance, I (or another Ravenhead) could scan it and add it here.

yeah, I have a few of those issues, I just check and was about to scan them, but the thing is THEY ARE REALLY KIDDIE lol!

If you haven't already (anyone) empire's website has quiz tests for the trilogy, the questions change and some are really tough. You have to sign up, but it's worth it!
