Are you going for, perhaps, Mac's "This is very dangerous"?

Dunno about Oxley, but I think that Indy's 'Damn, I thought that was closer' when he crashes through the truck windshield at least taps the fourth wall, if doesn't essentially break it, considering the audience is technically the only party "present" to whom he has to explain that mishap.

No, It seems Oxley had a moment where he does this. A senior moment, if you will. I remember that I was a tad bothered by the cinematic awkwardness of it. If my memory serves me right, it's while they're in Akator right before the natives attack the group.

Although Pat Roach's German Mechanic looks directly into the camera and

Willie, singing in Cantonese, gives us all a wink and after tripping
the light fantastic, a smile, gestures played to the audience.

While the Pilot who follows Indy and his old man into the tunnel flys and the Interdimentional Creature in Akator leans into the camera...
Mac takes it a bit further and actually points directly at us as he
explains that we pay, a nice little play on words and fun poke at
capitalism being the reason we're all here, cast crew and audience
once again.

John Williams has used unconventional instruments in past compositions such
as an electric guitar in Attack of the Clones. What instrument used in the
movies "War of the Worlds" and "Superman Returns" does he utilize for
Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ?

PVC pipes like the Blue Man Group...

I remember reading the name of the instrument somewhere, can't remember what it's called though.

Let me guess...a theramin, perhaps?

Those "broken 4th wall" items are LAME! They are all point-of-view shots.

Jeeze, I'll spell it out

Willie broke the fourth wall, she winked to the audience...

Mack pointed at the audience and said "they pay"

And I say, Mr. Condescending, that you're trying a bit too hard, as that's both where Willie's audience and Mac's employers are within the film.

We understand you, we just disagree.

I'll chime in to say that I understand and somewhat agree with the Surgeon.

True. But it seems to me that Willie's bit was there to include us while Mack's carried a statement within. Whatever.


Next one if you must.

What I said to Stoo was condescending, I thought I was being nice to you...c'est la vie. It's not really that hard...

Nice try go check it out again...if Spalco 12 o'clock high on the dial Mack is pointing across Indy's line of sight...and POSSIBLY at the 2 soldiers at the far right of Indy. But definitely at us.

Belloq recites a prayer in Aramaic prior to the opening of the ark. The
theme of this prayer is, in a strange sort of Indiana Jones synergy, the
motto of the US and was added to US paper currency in 1957 due in large part
to "Ike", General Dwight D. Eisenhower.

If you can translate the prayer, God bless, but all you need do is state the
motto.

The theme of the prayer and US motto is "In God We Trust" originally printed in the US on the 1864 two cent coin. The Aramaic Herald ran a short piece on this prayer citing movies that feature the language including Harry Potter. It's one place you can find it translated.

Indy-Cast Trivia VII

You all know and love this man's work, but do you know him? The Star Wars Main Titles were his first notes as member of the London Symphony Orchestra and John Williams has stated how he subsequently wrote with him in mind for Indiana Jones as well as Superman. Who is this man?

The LSO's Principal Trumpet for 30 years, Maurice Murphy is one of the best known, most admired and loved trumpeters in the world. Recently retired, The London Symphony Orchestra produced a tribute with many of his colleagues including John Williams to discuss some of his greatest moments playing.

It can be found at: http://lso.co.uk/mauricemurphy.

Whose paintings were the basis for the design of The Ark of the Covenant, who is the artist who produced the image Indy shows to Eaton and Musgrove, and where does the other painting of the Ark appear in Raiders?

Ralph McQuarrie provided the illustration of the Ark of the Covenant, made to resemble an etching, as seen in Indy's Bible in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

His work and the actual prop were based on paintings by French artist James Tissot



The other painting of the Ark is visible on the far wall as " the sun hits the Map Room."

Indy-Cast Trivia X

980

As a young boy, George Washington hoped to learn how to act like a proper eighteenth-century Virginia gentleman by copying the 110 "Rules of Civility" from a text by John T. Phillips. Which rule makes it to The Last Crusade?

Hint: The mailing address on the Grail Diary cannot be seen in the movie, neither can this minutia. If you've enjoyed the recent reading material flooding the bookstores since last May and you've paid close attention to the clues, a tenacious Indy Fan will make short work of this.

Remember Luceno for next time, pay attention to the fine print.

Rule number 22: Show not yourself glad at the misfortune of another, though he were your enemy

Just as the mailing address on the Grail Diary cannot be seen in the movie, neither can the text on Henry Sr's bookmarks.
However, James Luceno's book: Indiana Jones the Ultimate Guide provides the closer look at Henry Sr's tome, another facet to his character and the answer.
