Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom by James KahnThe time is 1935. Through a series of misadventures in Shanghai - and a narrow escape from death - Indiana Jones finds himself in a remote village in India. A mysterious shaman says his arrival has been foreseen and that Indy and his companions, Willie Scott and Short Round, are destined to save the villagers.
The prequel to Raiders - Jones is a different character here, more inclined towards “fortune and glory, kid, fortune and glory” than putting items in a museum - this is fast paced, occasionally broad, amusing and darker than you expect. Well constructed, even if some of the writing is fairly basic, this dwells longer on the mines and Temple of Doom itself (though never calls it that) than the film does but is all the better for it. Clearly written from the shooting script, the novelisation provides back stories for Short Round and Willie, explains how she got captured before her sacrifice scene and shows us how Shorty knew that fire would bring Indy back. An entertaining read (with wonderful last lines - “They did eventually all make it to America. But that is another story”) and the perfect accompaniment to the film, I thoroughly enjoyed this and would highly recommend it to fans of Dr Jones.
Dinner of Doom
Orphaned during the Japanese bombing of Shanghai in , Li picked up his alias as a pickpocket on the streets of his home town and attempted to rob the man he would later refer to as Dr. Wan Li was born on February 8, He was taken in by a Christian mission, where he picked up English and math, but soon turned to the seedy streets of the Shanghai underbelly, acquiring survival instincts while working as a guide, pickpocket, and cutpurse.
Is Glenn from The Walking Dead Shortround from Indiana Jones?
The part of Indy's scrappy sidekick eventually went to Jonathan Ke Quan, squashing dreams of stardom and Spielberg for a lot of hopeful kids. One of those boys was filmmaker Nobu Adilman, who auditioned for the role of Short Round when he was 11 years old. Long story short: he didn't get the part. Fast-forward three decades. Spielberg and Co. Nobu auditioned in Toronto, which had a huge turnout. Did you audition for Short Round back in ?
Anyone who grew up, or even those born, in the 80s know who this guy is. Do you know what else this cute little guy starred in? Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom. I never did think too far into the stereotyping that lead to this role, but what child does? Sci-fi fans from near and far know who this character is, right? The one who also discovers the secret in the barn. So, who here thinks Glenn and Shortround are the same guy?
