: : BTW, I'm not heedlessly defending anything Indy, I'm just curious. However, I think some much cornier scenes can be found in TOD -- "Wake up, Dr. Jones!" for one, and the whole bit about the mararajah (sp?) knowing about the left tunnel... but like you said, outweighed by the rest.
: I just want to ask; whats corny about the Maharajah knowing about the
: left tunnel????? It is his castle, and he should know
: the way out. Like if the British attack, I'm sure Mola Ram wants the
: Maharaja to escape so he can keep his cover, so just why wouldn't
: he tell the kid????? But the whole thing with the ripping out the
: guys heart and him living and then it bursting into flame was a bit corny,
: although it also added a nice touch, I think.

So I *do* know how to spell maharajah! Wonderful!
To address the point, you're right, it's not that serious, but still, how'd the prince know they were taking a mine shaft out? Besides, I don't think the prince would know any exit other than the way into the palace, where he led the captured children. But that's a plot hole, not a corn element. I guess I'm just nitpicking.
You know, I just love this pattern. "the guy" talks about a corny element. I reply, asking what's corny about it, and state something else corny. Indy Anna replies to me, asking what's corny about the scene I mentioned, but in turn describes a scene *she* found corny. Then Stephen replies, asking what's corny about Indy Anna's offering. It's a chain of corn! Oh, never mind.
Hmm. I wonder if my logo works... I hope so, I need to spruce up my messages a wee bit...
