Marion, Willie or Elsa?

If you would meet all three in real life wich one would you choose? Beware that all the women would come with their movie personalities.
For a long time I thought it would be Marion but I saw the TV movie King Solomons Mines and that changed my mind a little bit. In that movie Alison Doody looks preaty fine. And it is made 15 years after TLC.
I am gonna be shallow and say Elsa.

I have had Kate Capshaw in my restaurant a few times with her and Steven's kids and she is AWESOME. She is super chill, really kind, and has zero ego. I wish all dinning customers, star or not where as nice as she was. I can only hope everyone esle inthe world is that nice, which of course we all know is not the case.

I always thought that Elsa was the most beautiful but Marion just has a certain spunk and attitude that I really like. Marion gets my vote.

If we're talking about movie characters, Marion by a country mile

If we're talking about the REAL LIFE Actors, then *shrug* I couldn't care less.... Though I'd probably still go with Karen Allen....


Mostly to talk about Starman... Or The Sandlot....

Heh

I see that you are all mostly for Marion. But what is wrong with Elsa. And I do not mean it from physical point of view. She would be a good person to be around. She is smart, dedicated to her work, passionate. I would like a girl like that any day.
Marion is great but what would happen if night after night she would drink more than you could. In Serbia that is something to be ashamed of (for men).

I'll say Marion. She's in my favorite movie. Her character is well developed, and perfectly played. She and Indy have a intriguing past and great connection, and they love each other. She's shrewd, yet trustworthy. She's fun and she owns the Raven. I would love to sit down and chat with Karen. She adds alot to my of enjoyment of Raiders, and has great acting range.

At least in the film's portrayal of them, Marion has the most personality. She's a little rough around the edges, but that can add to her charm.

Dude, she was working from the wrong angle. In the novel, she was totally obsessed with the grail. That's not attractive, that's scary!

My opinion is based on the movies and nothing else. And in the movie she seems like a good person to me. So she is opsesed with the grail. So what. If I would meet her in the real life that would be such a small thing. That would be so close to all of Ravener's opsesion with Indy IV.

Can't you people see beyond that? So what if she was a NAZI. If she lived in USSR in the same time she would be a communist. If she lived somewhere else she would be something else. It's not her fault that Austria was occupied by Germany.

It was still her choice to be a Nazi. No one forced her to work with them.

If I met Elsa, I would scold her for being phony and for all of her betrayal

I don't think she really was a "Nazi." She was working with them, yes, but so was Belloq. Each were trying to accomplish their own selfish goals and were merely using the Nazis as a tool for that.
"We both wanted the grail. I would have done anything to get it, you would have done the same."
"I care about the grail, not the swastika!"

That being said, not everyone in Austria and Germany were Nazis. There were many many people living in those areas who did not agree with national socialism. The same can be said for the USSR. Not everyone there was a communist. There is little that one can do to justify being a member of the Nazi party. Fighting for Germany under the Whermacht is one thing. There were outspoken supporters of Germany who were decidedly against the Third Reich.
For Example, Clemens August Graf von Galen.

Back on topic, I'd go with Marion. The problem with Willie is the screaming.

Classic...

Willie's a whiner, and while I admire Elsa's...intellectualism, I don't like having to keep checking over my shoulder. Process of elimination would dictate Marion.

Do you people realy believe that if Elsa was real and she lived in todays world she would be a Nazi.
Imagine that. Elsa is real Austrian woman. She is realy after the grail. She has a job and a life. Everything that happens in the world has the same influence on her like on anybody else. Now the question is: Is she a nazi?
I don't think so.

True...but she's also an opportunistic fortune hunter. Her Nazism, agreed, was coincidental, but it displayed how far she'd go to get what she wanted. So I reiterate that I wouldn't want to have to watch my back.

Just a small tip. When I sad which woman would you choose I ment that sexualy. I can see that there are several members of the oposite sex that voted here. Did you misunderstand the point of this pole or are you all just funny that way. Just for the record, I have nothing against that girl on girl stuff.
