Good spot. Maybe a deleted scene, just after a 109-year-old one-eyed man delivered a fully functioning Grail Cup Mk. II.

Woah since Indy was in the 50s did he put the bop in the bop she bop she bop or did he put the lamb in the lama lama ding dong?

Those would have been great and harrison could have pulled it off. He still did action movies in the 90s as jack ryan or when he did the fugitive he was still in perfect shape, and could make him look in his younger 40s. I would love to have seen Spear of destiny or fate of atlantis. Great game by the way.

What the hell let go the restraints and indulge yourself! Make it a comedy with hints of adventure...

Indiana Jones the Wacky Archaeologist

Indy can begin the film trapped inside clown makeup...playing childrens parties.

Maybe a Hope and Crosby "Road" film for Indy V...

Oh wait, Lucas already had a go at that a few years ago...

It was a bit of an uneasy mish-mash. Not quite the expected concoction...

I liked the bit where Ollie sent the iceman away because they'd had a new fridge delivered, only it wasn't a fridge, but a mode of transport. Then Stan went swinging through the trees like Tarzan with a bunch of monkeys. It was okay, it had it's moments, but it wasn't one of their classics.

They really had to manufacture the: "Look what you've gotten us into this time" moment!

After plunging down the thrid waterfall, and Ollie was wringing out his tie, he delivered the line, "That's another fine mess!" But he said it much better in trailer. I've no idea why they didn't use that version in the movie.

Interesting that they originally had Mac presented as much more of a Scotsman...

Now he would have been more convincing as a double crossing double agent.

KOTCS just went overboard with the scale of the cliffhangers, I mean this one was just unbelievable:

I dig Indy in the wig disguised as Spalko. I'd forgotten that scene, when he had to fight off Dovchenko's amorous advances.

Harrison was cheated out of the Academy Award for that one...imagine putting on all that weight for a role!


Too bad the Scottish quotient dropped, but then again...Welsh/Scottish, just another form of mush mouth right? You end up saying more with your eyes...



Dont tell Terry Jones though!

He deserved the award for virtually carrying KOTCS signle-handed, and never losing sight of the character.

A real trooper, Harry. We - who are about to cringe before a possible #5 - salute you.

I'm looking for an old interview or article mentioned here:
Quote:
In May 1998, Mr. Showbiz spoke with Jeffrey Boam about the rumored Lost Continent script. He said that he hadn't heard of anything called that, in fact, he was told not to place a name on the script he turned in two years prior and had not heard anything about it since.
No sign of it on the archived site.

Interview from 1996:
Quote:
Shortly after LETHAL, Steven Spielberg called with the Holy Grail of writing gigs (so to speak).

“I forget what he said, but it was something like, ‘You wanna get real rich?’ and I said ‘Yeah, why?’ and he said, ‘I think you should do the next Indiana Jones movie’,” recalled Boam. “He said he had to talk to George because George didn’t know me from Adam. So a long time went by, and I actually put it out of my mind. Then Steven called me for some other reason, and I said ‘By the way, anything going on for the Indiana Jones idea?’ and he said, ‘I think George is going to call you soon.’ So I got a call from George and he wanted to meet me at Amblin. I went over there, met with George and got along real well and the next step was spending about two weeks with George working out the story for INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE.” The process proved to be very simple according to Boam. “Lucas had ideas for set pieces already in mind,” recalled Boam. “The whole thing in Venice with motorboards and the two hulls the motorboat gets crushed between was already in his mind. And what I brought to it especially was this whole Sean Connery thing. The father character had never been evolved. This was actually Lucas’ fourth attempt to do a third INDIANA JONES movie. There were two other writers who had kind of false starts, but nobody really tackled the father relationship or the father’s character, so that gave me a lot to work with.”

At the time of this interview (1996), Boam had actually done a couple of drafts for INDY 4 but said he couldn’t really talk too much about it. “George is very happy with the script and Steven is happy with it too, but the next step is to get Harrison on board,” Boam said at the time.

Independence Day came out in the summer of 1996...
and from whichever Crystal Skull documentary it was, we know that Independence Day killed the "earth vs flying saucers" aspects of a 4th Indy outing.
Though the thought that Boam had perhaps written an alternative idea for an Indy 4 film is intriguing, we can pretty much assume that Boam's drafts were indeed "saucer men" page one rewrites... and then the project was dead in the water for many many years.

Still would love to get my hands on a Boam or Nathanson draft... if anyone is thinking of a Christmas present for the doctor.

I thought I'd bump this thread to ask:

Has this one ever emerged?

It hasn't and it's too bad, because we can't judge Lucas's flying saucers concept without it. The Jeb Stuart draft is valuable as a work-in-progress peek at the general idea, but since Lucas was not satisfied until Boam's final draft then that's the one we really need.

Someone changed the Monkey King date from 1985 to 1995.

I find the 1949 date on the Stuart draft curious. I wonder if that was Stuart's idea or Lucas'? It's something I wonder since at this point Lucas had already shown Indy adventuring in the 1950s in the YIJC.

I wonder what it was about Stuart's draft that Lucas wasn't happy with.

Supposedly, the Jeff Nathanson draft also took place in 1949. I think the important thing to Lucas was that the story take place post-Roswell. Ultimately they chose 1957 to reflect the 19 years since the release of Last Crusade, which was set in 1938, but it certainly didn't have to be that way. Crystal Skull was the first Indy sequel in which the date was determined by the time between releases.

We don't know the specifics, but apparently Lucas wanted Boam on the project from the get-go, but had to start with another writer due to Boam being unavailable. Here's Boam himself speaking on the matter in an interview from June 1995:

Quote:
JB: “I’ve been working on a fourth installment of ‘Indiana Jones.’ I’m just about done with the first draft. Somebody else had also tried their hand at it, and it didn’t work out too well.”

They always keep coming back to you, Jeffrey.

JB: “It’s nice, you know. Actually, George Lucas came to me to do this first, and I was busy writing a movie called ‘The Phantom.’ So I couldn’t do ‘Indy,’ because I had to do that, and when I finished that, George came back to me and said, ‘It didn’t really work out with the other writer, are you available?’
