Could Old Indy have made a difference in the early 1990's?

After watching the old Indiana Jones Chronicals compliments of Stoo I was thinking could Indy have gone into the hood and made a difference?

Indiana Jones and the Streets of Compton would of been a heck of a movie....


Armed with a bull whip and his Webley Indy could of taken the mean streets of South Central LA....

The oldest Punisher in town. Or more like Nick Fury with that eye patch.

Interesting question. But the problem isn't just the time period.

Indy was always after the MacGuffin. Even in Temple, he saved the enslaved children as an afterthought. He was really after the stones. Had to rescue Willie and Shorty, but still, the stones played a central role.

No great artifacts in Compton. And if the King Tut exhibit tours again, it won't be going thru Compton.

Thanks for the plug, 'Hachi, but don't you mean, "Chronicles"?

In the '90s, the only weapons Old Indy wielded were his eagle-headed cane and his tall-tale telling. He'd probably corner a gang with threats of a cane-bashing and then bore them to tears with a story from yesteryear until they begged for release (or until they realized the moral & saw the light).

I know he only had a cane but what if something were to spring him into action for one last horrah.... Like when he was in the hospital and that little girl was shot in a gang shooting lol. I wanna see Indy pull a Temple of Doom! "Right all of us....." and he could fight Deebo from Friday as the Pat Roach type character

You do realise Old Indy was like 90-94?

In any case, the best badass moment of Old Indy was that donut shop one, where he grabs the kid by the neck and gets angry at him for insulting an old lady customer and then he ends up in jail. So funny.... I wonder what his daughter thought about that?

Hahaha I should! But in all honesty couldnt you picture Indy walking down the streets of LA and a gang member approches him Indy responds with a solid punch to the jaw and sends the thug back. Than all chaos ensues! Mind you the LAPD is backing Indy up hahah

Like a Crocodile Dundee moment - the out of place character taking charge of a situation. I think Indy would have been tough right up to the end, despite appearances. He has the combination of luck, the will to survive and the knack for fighting dirty. As you wrote, he wouldn't be your average senior citizen!

That's my favourite as well. "If you apologize to the nice lady, right now, I'll reconsider turning your head into a sausage pizza!"

As for just having the cane, I just realized that he could make an impromptu weapon out of a pool cue...if need be. (I haven't uploaded those bookends yet but someone else did.)

The thing is, Old Indy went soft. He talked the talk but never walked the walk anymore. Remember, he was in that hospital for a bee sting on his big toe. Later he got stuck up in a tree and was helped down by the fire department.

I could imagine the cane being a sword stick, or not...

I guess this question will be answered in 20 years time when they finally get around to making Indy V.

Early 1990s Indy was a pathological liar. Don't believe a word of what he ever said. He never met Dracula. The Ark never existed, and when he said he took a ride out of an atom bomb test in a refrigerator he was just teasing the kids!
