John Hurt, the new ungrateful Alec Guinness:
"I enjoyed working with Steven hugely, and we had a great cast. I just wish we'd had something of fabulous interest between each other to act!"
"George is a bit socially crippled, really. Not good with people. So I just left him alone."

We looked into it and there were various things about it — like the time I had to be on set — where I thought, "No, this isn't going to work out." But then I was advised by everybody that it'd be a good thing to do.

I said, "Well, I need to have a little bit of previous knowledge even if God is doing it." So they sent a courier over with the script from Los Angeles, gave it to me at three o'clock in the afternoon in London, collected it again at eight o'clock in the evening, and he returned the next day to Los Angeles. So that was an expensive read.

Great short interview in any event. Hurt should write an autobiography if he hasn't already!

Indy doesn't look very rough and ready in this shot, his trousers are far too clean for a start.

George Lucas — I was thinking that this old guy could have been his mentor. He could have known this little girl when she was just a kid. Had an affair with her when she was eleven.
Lawrence Kasdan — And he was forty-two.
G — He hasn't seen her in twelve years. Now she's twenty-two. It's a real strange relationship.
Steven Spielberg — She had better be older than twenty-two.
G — He's thirty-five, and he knew her ten years ago when he was twenty-five and she was only twelve. It would be amusing to make her slightly young at the time.
S — And promiscuous. She came onto him.
G — Fifteen is right on the edge. I know it's an outrageous idea, but it is interesting. Once she's sixteen or seventeen it's not interesting anymore. But if she was fifteen and he was twenty-five and they actually had an affair the last time they met. And she was madly in love with him and he...
S — She has pictures of him.

You know, I just watched "Temple of Doom" again for the first time in ages, and I was wondering: if the Thugees can hypnotize people with their magic blood and have voodoo dolls that work, and if the sacred stones glow during their sacrifice ceremonies ... then doesn't that legitimize their evil supernatural magic power, and sort of imply it's the villagers who are misusing this magic, intrinsically evil power?

If there is a better piece of writing on these films, I haven't read it.

Didn't know until yesterday that Temple of Doom was a prequel.
The part of my personality that's still eleven years old thinks that's big news and wants to talk to people about this.

also the part of me that thinks the coolest part about Blade Runner is the "is he an android?" discussion and the part of me that desperately wants to know if Bond is one man or five different guys who go by the same code name James Bond.

Yeah wow that last article is intense. I never realized what a horrible person Indiana Jones is.
Of course, he's a cartoon though!
