All in the span of about 20 minutes or so on the same afternoon.
So couldn't LC's Young Indy sequence, for this reason, be just as "hokey" or unbelievable as the YIJC?
What's so unbelievable?
First off your number one joins number two.
He doesn't get "inspiration for his future attire completely from one man", unless I missed the gas mask bag. Which just leads me to believe Indy goes with what works, which the rucksack supports.
So he gets a scar? How does this play into any of the other films? I don't remember it being the focus of ANYTHING...besides being visible, (if you want to obsess on it), it's much like the whip scars on his back.
Ultimately he has a formative experience in his youth. What's so unbelievable about that?
The traveling Circus was an insipred set piece.
to find a much less personal, albeit REAL experience which has "inspired" much more...
Now, he fell into fat bearded lady's lap but didn't chase trannies...
