Marion's a romantic, but independant and her theme song is moving.
(Raiders Indy, it's a shame Skull short changed her)
Willie is ___________________,__________________,___________ ________.
(and allways will be)
Elsa could only be admired for her beauty, (fleeting) and her intelegence.
(Could never be sure of her allegiance...too exhausting and high maintenance)

Willie all the way! Marion's a close second but Elsa's a bit too unsavory for me!
And Kate and Karen are still pretty sexy {Allison is...what, 60% plastic?}

Welcome to the Rocket Masterclass. I suspect you were taught by the master?

Still has to be Elsa. All the way.

For reasons I cannot say, because if I do I'll be banned, Elsa. The woman was and still is wonderful.

Probably something formal like that.

The Indiana Jones guide to courtship would involve a trip to romantic Venice, with flowers arranged for the lady in question upon her arrival. A visit to a library is recommended for bedtime reading, to show that the gentleman's intentions are entirely honourable. Afterwards maybe a little excursion off the normal tourist route, carefully planned to arrive at a highly recommended al fresco cafe by the water front. The final act of seduction should be a gentle canal trip...

I like all of Indy's girls, but my favorite is a toss between Marion and Willie but I choose Willie because I have a soft spot for underdogs.

I think she's badly misunderstood.

I like that she's a working woman, has the guts to go out of the country and pursue her dreams, the bond she, Indy and Short Round form, and the humor she provides.

She's also gorgeous and a good person.

I want Willie to return for the next film! Preferably with Short Round. I liked the idea of them sticking together after Temple.

"Shanghai slapper"!!! Now that is a term I could not use where I live. Many Chinese immigrants have settled in my suburb to the point it's called China Town! It would be taken the wrong way (when talking about Willie of course).

Thumbs up Which Indy babe is it?

Karen Allen was a fun, balsy actress and the filmmakers loved her so much that they considered- for a moment- keeping Marion in all the films. Marion, though, even in the fourth installment, just comes across as very childish I think. So would she be the one I'd want for my own? Nope. Kate Capshaw, in my opinion, was the most versatile of the Indy starlets and was a shinig light in a very dark film. Willie, though, is spoiled, so I'd have to pass. Now, Elsa- there's an awesome dame! Allison Doody, I think, was the prettiest of the Indy starlets, so that's one point for Elsa. A blonde bombshell to behold and actually got prettier with age. Also, let's face it, she was an equal to Indy in almost every way. Elsa was very young to have such an impressive degree in archeology, even younger than Indy when he first enrolled at Chicago. Yet, she became a star in the field much faster than Indy. She is a brave adventurer, asking to be the first one into the catacombs in search of Sir Richard. Her devotion to the Reich was only superficial in that she was Austrian, but her tears for the book-burning showed her indifference to Hitler's cause. Indy, too, felt an overpowering lust for the Grail- a lust that was Elsa's undoing and might well have been Indy's if not for his father. Elsa clearly was in love with Indy and I like to think she might have redeemed herself had she survived. So, my vote is for Elsa as the best Indy babe.

Imagine that. Elsa is real Austrian woman. She is realy after the grail. She has a job and a life. Everything that happens in the world has the same influence on her like on anybody else. Now the question is: Is she a nazi?
I don't think so.

Avoiding the obvious political jokes... Elsa is the kind of woman that would gladly side with any evil in the world if there was opportunity in it. She's not a sadistic evil person, but she is evil in the sense that her moral compass broke off years ago.

There's some good left in her, but it's deeply buried, with her affection for Indiana mired in her 'femme fatale' role - and it even took the shooting of Henry Sr. just for some of a more just nature to really show through.

She was a true Nazi, and not just a characature of one. She was a Nazi because it was convienient for her to be one, just like many of the party leaders. In the end, she never even betrayed the Nazis... just Donovan, who had already admitted he was using them too.

Edit: And I completely and utterly necroed this without realizing it. Sorries, all!
