: : I disagree. I really don't like the original title "Raiders" because it certifies Indy as a pothunter and graverobber, which he's not.
: : -Indy
: Indy *is* a graverobber - part-time, at least. If you know anything about the original idea of Indy, he was supposed to be a "mild-mannered"
: archaeologist while teaching and a treasure-hunter/tomb-raider/field man the other half of the time. This was the essence of "Raiders".
If Indy is a graverobber, than he's no better than Belloq, the Nazis, or anyone else for that matter. Ford takes his character very seriously; if he decides to give Indy the appearance of a grave robber, than Indy is not the "good guy!"
