: Is Sallah really a good friend? I know he has risked his life for Indy on a number of occasions but he has no compassion. "Marion's dead." "Yes I know. But life goes on Indy." Kind of a coldhearted remark, yes? I'm a guy and never thought of it before but I was watching ROTLA with my girlfriend last night and she pointed it out. Interesting how wimmin think. (which thankfully isn't often. haha)
: BTW - Is it true that Sallah is executed in the original script?
Well, we're comparing Eastern vs. Western thought. As an Arab, Sallah would have been brought up to believe that life is just how he phrased it, "you live, you die, we'll remember you, but life goes on.", Where as the Western thought structure would be to mourn the loss for a period of time. Just different worlds of thinking. Regards. Michaelson
