I also love how Belloq says "You know it's true" when he telling Indy how they are alike.
Something about the way he says it makes me laugh.

Remember when Indy attempts to jump across the ravine in the Idol Temple in Raiders? When he manages to grab onto a.....thing, whatever it is.....he smiles and you see all this black stuff on his teeth.

I always thought that that was dust.

No, it looks like tar or something. I always thought it was funny anyway.

Truck chase, Raiders. Nazi goon punching Indy in his gunshot wound. Blood on the Nazis fist. Blood not on the Nazis fist.

Yeah I wondered this too. I always thought there was a hole but that you just couldn't see it through the blackness of the tux jacket. Also that it wasn't that big of a bullet since he didn't bleed that much.


Another thing I always notice is in Raiders, when Indy swims onto the sub and jumps up to find the hatch, there's a Nazi flag just sticking out randomly waving in the wind. I always wondered why they'd put a flag outside a sub, unless they had replacements.

Talking about the submarine, when Indy gets on top of it, he does this strange spin... show-off!

When he spinned, it looked to me like he was thinking "WTF do I do now?"

Let's see, for Raiders, stuff I've noticed in repeated viewings that my family and friends didn't catch:

1. The whole thing with the other officer in the troop car. Up until I brought him up as my first post on this board (or one of my first, anyway) I'd never seen anybody mention noticing a third officer at Tanis (I'm still trying to figure out where he came from, since he doesn't appear until just before the chase begins, already in the car).

2. When the weird noises and light first start coming out of the Ark, the two soldiers who discretely move from the front of the crowd to the back, are the same two who opened it for Belloq. In pan-and-scan versions it looks like they actually have the brains to sneak off, but instead they stupidly linger at the back of the crowd.

3. Gobler the ventriloquist. It's the worst audio-visual blooper in the movie in my opinion, and one that's been hidden from many viewers' eyes for years due to poor Gobler being consistently offscreen in pan-and-scan versions of the movie. I don't claim to be the first to have noticed it, but I was the one who submitted it to Nitpickers.com (along with the one about Gobler's goggles going up and down in different shots in the truck chase).

4. The so-called Tall Captain who tells Belloq he's arranged the altar for him, despite being seen walking with the procession through the canyon, is not present at the actual opening of the Ark (that I can see, anyway).

5. Not including accidental players like the guy who lands on the truck hood early on, the total number of participants in the truck chase (including Indy) is 19:

1 Indiana Jones on horsie
1 Belloq in black Mercedes
1 Toht in black Mercedes
1 Dietrich in black Mercedes
1 Gobler in troop car
1 German officer in troop car
13 German soldiers altogether; 1 to drive black Mercedes, 2 in truck cab, 7 in back (including the Sarge), 1 manning machine gun in troop car, and 2 on motorcycle with sidecar

(I have way too much free time.)

6. And just to make this an even number of stuff, I guess I just pay more attention to Gobler than most (he really has grown on me despite being possibly the least effective bad guy in the movie; only the Cairo Swordsman is more useless), but when the car goes flying off the cliff, despite there being three people in it, only two fall out as it plummets; Gobler is the one who remains seated. Apparently, he remembered his seatbelt.

It was brought to my attention that in ToD, before Indy boards the plane in the beginning the guy they talk to is actually played by Dan Akroyd (don't remember the character's name). Never knew that he made such a cameo.

Another "why" question: why were those to be lowered into the lava pit first equipped with a lay as if they just got to Hawaii? lol

Good question! I don't have an answer, sadly.

Okay, one more "why".
Why did the other kids who were slaves in the mines underneath Pankot Palace, not think of the idea of breaking their chains with a mattock way before Mr. Round?

In the world of organized crime, that'd be what is called a legitimate business, good both as a front and as a way of earning extra money.

Well, you know. Volcanoes and Hawaii go hand in hand. Mola Ram was just trying to be nice. It was the least he could do considering he was about to lower them into molten lava.

Seriously, though, it appears to just be part of the ceremony. Those lowered into the pit are sacrifices to Mother Kali and are therefore "dolled up," if you will.

How do you think that one boy who showed up at the village escaped?

Likely, the children made many, many escape attempts, but the ruthless and brutal Thuggee always caught them again.

And, heck, even if some others did get away, it's likely they died of exposure or got lost trying to reach the village. That one little boy was practically near death.

Also, Short Round knew he had a ticket 'out', provided he could just reach Indy. Not to mention, he had far more experience surviving on his own- having been orphaned at such a young age.

Good points.
Now when I watch ToD again, I can keep my brain from nagging about those parts.

His name is listed in the cast during the end credits so it's not really a cameo.
The real cameo in airport scene comes in the form of two guys in the background.
Can you guess who they might be?

The subtitles also read "Art Weber".

I never noticed this either until I watched for it on USA the other day. It's such a funny move. To me, it's almost like a sarcastic "Oh, okay, whatever you say" kind of look. Haha!!
