I pretend that Dean Stanforth's wife Deidre is Willie in the wedding scene. She has a passing enough resemblance to the character for me to take my little fanboy delusion and wrap it snug around me like a blanket.

As much as I disliked the Saucer Men From Mars wedding, it was the perfect excuse for former acquaintances to make an appearence, even if they didn't have a speaking role.

And did anyone else notice that we only see the brides side of the pews? I presume the grooms side was empty, but you never know...

Connery was offered a role, but declined. It would have been nice to see some of Indy's past friends at his wedding, but what if it was done "shotgun," not much time for Short Round or Sallah to get there. I was glad not to see Willie at all.

I would have put Short Round, Sallah, and Willie in the front row at the very end for the wedding too.

To me, next to the the stupidness of the alien invasion in Saucermen, all the past characters being at the wedding was really bad. That's what happens when Lucas isn't kept in check. Fortunately, he was.

I don't think Marion would have liked seeing Willie there at all. And since Indy never won an argument with her...

Question

I would've liked to have seen Henry Sr in there somewhere. Having him watch as his son tries to deal with having a son. I don't like or understand how they could've had him pass away, though. Didn't he drink from the cup in Last Crusade? That meant eternal life, right? For that matter, Indy drank from it first and has grey hair in this movie...HUH??

That's what i've been thinking for awhile, did they just completely remove this factor from KOTCS? It's been annoying me for quite a while.

Sallah should have been in place instead of Mac, with Sallah remaining a good guy. Indy was digging in Mexico when he was picked up by the Soviets so it would have made sense for him to use Sallah down there.

Nobody with any credibility should have been in this film and it was a masterstroke by Connery to pass on it.

If only Sir Sean had been as wise and turned down Highlander 2 and LXG.

They would only be immortal if they had stayed in the Grail temple. But silly old Elsa had to take the Grail past the seal & cause the temple to fall apart! So, when they left the place, they were no longer immortal.

I would've liked to have seen Shorty in a non-speaking role at the wedding.

Is that from the movie? Only if they had stayed in the Grail Temple? That's not fair. Immortal life, but basically...no life? Who wants to stay in there forever? No sun, no food, no fun. ACK!!

Btw, I liked Shorty. Cool little kid. Not annoying at all, IMO.

A Shorty cameo would have been cool.

Short Round and Sallah

Was anyone else disappointed that neither of them came to Indy's wedding?

The only way any of their presences would be missing is at family function where cameos would have been appreciated. Except maybe Willie Scott, implications are she and Indy went their seperate ways.

Of course, I didn't know Indy kept a picture of her on show in his house at the time...

Henry sr was dead at the time. I know the first time Indy spoke about henry sr, it seems like he was on another lecture tour, but by the end of the movie, it pretty much confirms he's dead.

I dunno, Maybe Indy and Willie fell out of contact since 1935. Maybe she went off to hollywood and became the star she always wanted to be and wasn't available by 1957.

Shorty would have been the perfect addition. Indy seeing his old sidekick once more and wishing him luck bfore letting him off on his first archaeological dig.

Again, I'd have liked to have seen sallah again. Maybe one last adventure for them both before they both call it quits on the adventuring

Forget about adding anymore. They should have deleted some. The family and friends excursion didn't do it for me.

There is a good case for letting Indy move on from the past. Characters returning from years before can have a detrimental effect, in terms of highlighting self-referentiality, becoming purely 'fan moments'. It also makes Indy's world smaller, that he only has a few friends, whereas throughout his rich life he's met and befriended a huge number of people.

I agree Montana. I hope they employ that slant in Indy5. New and exciting characters and not too many of them, please.
