Interesting titles. Even though, it's not exactly on-topic, I thought I'm gonna post the translated titles of the episodes in Germany here, since they were officially given titles there:

Curse of the Jackal -Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Mummy
London- Indiana Jones and the Battle of Women
British East Africa- Indiana Jones and the Shots in the Garden of Eden (refers to a quote by Old Indy in the bookends)
Verdun- Indiana Jones and the Fields of Death
German East Africa- Indiana Jones and the River of Death
Congo- Indiana Jones and the Jungledoctor
Somme- Indiana Jones and the Battle of Somme
Germany- Indiana Jones and the Break-out King
Barcelona- Indiana Jones and the Eunuch of Barcelona
Mystery of the Blues- Indiana Jones and the Al Capone Blues
Princeton- Indiana Jones and the Dreamcar
Petrograd- Indiana Jones and the Birthday in St. Petersburg
Scandal of 1920- Scandal of 1920
Vienna- Indiana Jones and the Princess on the Ice
Phantom Train of Doom- Phantom Train of Doom
Ireland- Indiana Jones and the Easter Rebellion
Paris- Indiana Jones and the forged Master
Peking- Indiana Jones and the Needles of Dr. Wen Chiu
Benares- Indiana Jones and the Teachings of Krishnamurti
Paris- Indiana Jones and Mata Hari
Istanbul- Indiana Jones and the Wolf of Istanbul
Paris- Indiana Jones and the bitter Victory
Florence- Indiana Jones and the Foridden Feelings
Prague- Indiana Jones: This number is out of service
Palestine- Indiana Jones and the Wells of Bersheeba
Transylvania- Indiana Jones and the Lord of Darkness
Hollywood- Indiana Jones and the Intrigues in Hollywood
Egypt/Java- Indiana Jones and the Treasure of the King
Red Baron- Indiana Jones and the Attack of the Red Baron.
Russia/Athens- Indiana Jones and the Travels with Father

I know that some episodes are missing but those were either to hard to translate or they were simply never aired.

Yes, Adam, that was great. You really captured the tone! I especially liked the "tilts head back" detail.
Bookends for the films...very interesting concept. (I wonder if I could make one from all the Old Indy footage...)
Please, have a go at the other 2 movies. In a few weeks you can do Indy 4, too!

Old Indy bookends for the movies would be a fun fan film project. I think a good idea would be to set the bookends in the same year the film came out. That way, you don't have to have an exact match for Harrison Ford or George Hall...

I played the role of an old man in a student film project once and used Old Indy as an inspiration.
Didn't even think about it at the time and it just came to me. The idea of bookends for the movies is a great one!
One foray into this area is a fan-made film that has Old Indy in 1977 but I can't remember its name...

And while we're on it, we should make up some bookends for the episodes, which never had bookends, like Palestine or Phantom Train of Doom.

Thanks! I'll try to write bookends for the other films soon, but they'll probably suck compared to my Last Crusade bookends.

Temple of Doom, I think, will be the hardest to do.

And now, my bookends for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. They're a bit long, but I got carried away and couldn't help myself.


Old Indy is with his great-grandchildren Annie and Harry at the 1994 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. We see a couple of the usual floats pass by. The two kids cheer at The Lion King float. A woman approaches Indy.

Caroline:
You must be getting cold, Grandpa! (smiles) I’ll take over from here.

Old Indy:
Well… I think I could hold out… but a rest would do me good. (waves at them all) See you kids in a little while.

Indy looks around, and spots a nearby café alongside the road. He enters and takes his coat off. He sits down at the bar, and orders a cup of coffee. Indy and the bartender beside him (who is in his late twenties) watch the parade from the café’s window.

Bartender:
Would you look at that!

Old Indy:
(sipping his coffee) Huh? (turns his head) Oh.

They see a huge, dragon-like character high above one of the floats. It is attached to a hot-air balloon which blows fire about a hundred feet in the air.

Old Indy:
Ho-ly smokes. It gets bigger and better every year. You know…all of this macabre reminds me of the time I was in India, in 1935. After a crazy series of events, I found myself caught up with a bloodthirsty cult hell-bent on finding the Sankara stones, a kind of… “magic rocks”…

An hour or two later, Indy is finishing his story.

Old Indy:
It was pure horror. But in the end, we made it out safe, Mola Ram got what was coming to him, Willie got a singing job back in the states, and I found Shorty a nice home there too. As for me, (grins) I continued my work.

Bartender:
You did all that for rocks?!?

Old Indy:
Of course not. (half-sarcastic tone) Have you been listening to me, boy? When I first arrived in the village, they thought I was sent from the gods. When I saved all their children, I think they believed I was a god. Sometimes you get yourself in a jam, and ya gotta do what you can to get out of it. It’s a part of life.

Bartender:
(nods and thinks for a second) So it was a good memory then?

Old Indy:
More like a bad dream.

Bartender:
So do you… believe in anything now? You know, like in God or something?

Old Indy:
Ohhh, I’m convinced there’s something out there.

Indy smiles and gives the man a slight smirk. The man watches in bewildered amazement as Indy leaves a twenty dollar bill on the counter and leaves the café to rejoin his family.

Fantastic videos! These should at least have been included as extras on the dvds.

I'm very impressed with your whole collection Stoo. Subscribed on youtube.

Adam, that is awesome, lol!

Spent the day yesterday at my dad's, and of course, Indy came up. My dad says 'There's young Indy, regular Indy and now old Indy!!' Me: 'Don't you remember the Old Indy bookends that Lucas has now gotten rid of?' Dad: 'No...'

My dad thought he was being soooooooo funny making jokes about Old Indy:P.

I think my familiarity with Old Indy is one of the reasons Harrison Ford's age has never really concerned me in terms of his performance/appearance in KOTCS. I forget sometimes that most people are not used to the idea of Indy at any age other than his 30s.

She's sitting on the left side of the garden bench. Yeah, she was probably doing laundry and saw the group in the yard.
(What's funny is, all the neighbours have descriptions in the end credits. The short, balding guy is, "Couch Potato"!)

I don't think it's anything important. Even when using the zoom function on a large screen, it's still difficult to read.
It's looks like "PiL Lavant" or something. At first I thought it could be an urn but appears to be filled with glass stones.

As much as I can't really get into fan fiction, I like that idea! Add Istanbul & Paris 1919 as a 2-part and couple
Prague with Palestine since these followed each other. Phantom Train & the 94-96 season could have 2 pairs each
(like Jackal, Scandal of 1920 and Travels With Father). Maybe new ones for Travels?

It's too bad that there was no "in between", segment with Ford in Mystery of the Blues.

Aha! I rewatched that and noticed that she hands Indy a plate of something at the end when they walk away. She also says something to him, but I can't make it out.

I also noticed in the beginning, there's a book laying on the table in front of Indy. Is that his diary?

Thanks for doing that! I thought it was an urn at first too!

I've watched the "Old Indiana Jones Chronicles" on StooTV several times now, and the doctor that Old Indy tells the Schweitzer story to has always looked familiar. Up until now, I couldn't quite place him, but just last night I rewatched Mystery of the Blues and realized that he's Goldie's brother, CJ.

Holy mackarel, you're right, Junior Jones! Good eye!
Now, I'm wondering if one of the guys from the "Northern Italy" bookends is in "Blues", too.

This could be yet another reason why Lucas took the bookends out...

Imagine if the series would have had an entire episode devoted to Old Indy's life. They could have had him meet Bill Clinton (since the series takes place in the early 90s). Old Indy could have given Clinton some tips on the saxophone.
