You call him Doctor Jones, doll!

Another movie sketch to clear the cobwebs a little. This is more along the lines of what I had in mind with the previous Chinatown sketch, something like Williamson's work on X-9.

I was, as I imagine many of you also were, a huge fan of the Indiana Jones movies when I was a kid. By happenstance I saw Temple of Doom more often than the other two, and by a long shot. To this day I'm sure I've seen Temple way more times than Raiders or Last Crusade. I know that part of the reason I liked it was that it scared the hell out of me, and I still consider it a favorite of mine. So it's always strange to me when I hear that people don't like it, not that I necessarily blame them. Of course, we had the NES game too, where if you took too long running around Mola Ram appeared out of nowhere and stole your heart. Or at least that's how I remember it.

Terrifying.

Temple of Doom is easily my favorite Indiana Jones film. People call me mad too.

Very cool. Tough to edge out the perfect ending of Last Crusade in my own personal hierarchy.

Yeah, Al Williamson was the first person I thought when I saw this. Wow!
