Her hairstyle was period-correct for the 1950s. Long & straight would have been out of place.

Mutt's hair is not greasey enough. It looks much too dry as if he uses mousse instead of pommade.

Granted, I was not alive back then but Marion's hairstyle doesn't strike me as being very '50s-ish. I also found her clothes too be much to clean & pressed for someone held captive for days/weeks in a humid jungle.

What?

In all of the movies with Harrison, he's pretty much had the same hair length.

He had longer hair in some of the promotional shots for TLC, and maybe in some of the pick-up shots?



As opposed to this:



I love that shot!

Yeah, I suppose the clothes are a little too neat. To me, her hair looks like what I would expect a permanent wave to look like after all that jungle humidity.

Yeah I think the first shot comes from around the time of the filming of the Motorcycle chase, which was filmed almost as an afterthought a few months after principal filming had ended and so Harrison's hair had grown a bit.

I do too, and the moment itself in the film is a great one.

On the subject of hair, let's just all be glad that Indy didn't decide to go back to the hairstyle of his youth as shown in River and Sean's Young Indy.

That was a bad hair day! At least River made fun of it in the lion wagon, with the parting of the curtains shot!

Yeah I know, I just thought for the 50's and to make him look a little younger Mostly the younger part, since our aging archaeologist can use every angle available, and I'm fairly certain Mr. Ford would take issue with even a modest dye job. Even a slight peppering of brown would really make a difference on the guy imho.

I think Spielberg and Lucas asked him to have a full dye job and he refused. Or something.

I think it wouldn't have looked natural on Harrison at that age. Plus I think the greying hair makes him more believable as the son of Henry Sr. Let’s just pray that Indy doesn’t inherit the baldness too!

Also, just wondering, was there something significant to Mac about his attire because he wears it in the opening scene then changes into a pale red button up shirt, cream pants and what I assume is a Panama hat then gets changed back into his original clothing at the camp site. He obviously had a chance to change his clothing so why did he change back?

Never really thought about it, but my gut reaction would be for consistency, and that the panama hat get-up was Mac's way of going incognito.

Does anyone know what hats the Soviet soldiers were wearing in the movie? They look a bit like the cap Lenin used to wear.

In case anyone was interested I got an e-mail from a friend saying the soldiers wore Soviet RKKA field caps. Stalin also wore a similar cap!

....and as long as I'm ranting here, what's up with the crotch of his pants? It hangs so low that it somehow looks like they're hiked-up. Makes him look older. Even if that was the cut of the day, it's not flattering for a guy that's supposed to not only be the leading man, but who is also playing a man several years younger than he is



I mean seriously? Are they TRYING to make him look old?

....and they did the same thing with Karen Allen/Marion:



Now Karen Allen may have some years on her, but she is the leading lady...and in real life she is whaaaaay sexier than this. I mean just do an image search on her through google. This woman is hot beyond her years. What gives? Why did they go out of their way to make these two frumpier? It makes no sense.

Is it just me or was that scene a homage to the scene where Ford is interrogated at the beginning of the Fugitive? The white shirt and the way he looks (sans beard) made me think of that even the first time I saw it.

I'll be honest, I wish we saw more 50s fashion in the film (polka dot dress on a young coed or even something like an Argyle sweater on Indy)

Good thread idea!

I always thought the white tux was straight out of James Bond as it exactly matches the one worn by Sean Connery in the opening scenes from Goldfinger, even down to the red carnation.

This to pay homage to the James Bond movies which were the inspirational 'father' to the Indiana Jones movies. Something they continued quite literally in the Last Crusade...

And I agree, great thread idea

Has a reason ever been given as to why Indy wears his satchel outside his jacket in this installment? I know it's irrelevant but I've always been curious why this was changed.

Every movie makes little changes to the outfit. The hat changes with each movie, for example. The jacket is slightly different each time, too. ToD saw the sleeves get ripped off. LC he wears a necktie over the outfit. So the bag was the KOTCS outfit change.

I really dislike the hat in CS by the way. It looks way too big and almost countryish.

Really? I think the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hat is the second best in the series, personally.

Last Crusade being the worst. It's so tiny and looks pretty bad.

The CS hat borders on looking like a Stetson more than a Fedora. I rank the hats on Harrison as such:

LC/Mystery of the Blues
TOD
Raiders
CS






That's another thing. All of the other hats have a sort of beaten/used look to them which gives each a distinct personally. The CS hat looks like it's new and wasn't used before the events of the movie. CS also is too tall.

Nothing beats the Raiders hat. It was the most worn down looking, had a few odd angles and that pinch on the crown = perfection.
