Nothing at all. I was just pointing out that Monty Smiff wasn't one. Nevermind drinkin' & smokin', our fine friend doesn't even eat meat!

Till I get a segment together for the show here's another diversion:

What Indiana Jones character(s) belong on this list:

Court Jester / Woody Allen : Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex
Ash : Alien
Jack Jeebs : Men In Black
Dracula's Brides : Dracula
Keith Jennings : The Omen
Jay "Chef" Hicks : Apocalypse Now
Thulsa Doom : Conan the Barbarian

I've only seen two of these seven movies, and neither of them recently.

Do they all lose their heads?

If so it could the German Mechanic and Dietrich.

Forgot about him.

Not even sure Dietrich specifically lost his head, as it must have been a couple of years since I saw Raiders.

Studios used to insist on changing dull or difficult names into ones they felt were more memorable or 'sexy', like Tom Cruise. Sometimes actors want to pretend they're not Hollywood royalty, like Angelina Jolie or Nick Cage.

Who would have starred as Indiana Jones if the Studio heads (not LFL) had their way?

"Columbia Pictures wanted me to change my name, I came back with a suggestion they quickly dismissed, and I never heard anything about it after that. Kurt Affaire. It was the dumbest name I could think of at the time."

Where can you find THIS sharp version (toothy, not resolution) of Mola Ram?

Built by Maharaja Man Singh I (which is coincidentally the name the actor shares with Temple of Doom's Maharaja) in 1592. its the Amer/Amber Fort/Palace, about 11km north of Jaipur.

Man, I can't count how many quarters I've pumped into that game but never saw the sides of the cabinet because it was squeezed into rows of other machines!

GREAT artwork!

(The spiked-tooth Mola Ram image was also used on a Polish poster from 1984 but part of a horn is covered by Indy's hand & sword.)
