Did you ever catch Dog Soldiers? I think you might enjoy that one. I'm always sort of torn between Raiders and Crusade for my favourite, but Connery is definitely a big plus in the latter. It also made putting Indy on the other side of the father/son dynamic in Skull that much more interesting. Temple always manages to pleasantly surprise me on rewatching. Much more going on in there than many give it credit for. Especially Short Round, not just stuck in for marketing and the cutes (quite possibly, though, for the kids), but very much a product of the damaged world in which the film is set. A child required to be an adult. It says much about Jones himself, perhaps, that while he does take the kid on, he's not 'able' to fully be the adult and take on a parent type role, instead making the kid a sort of quasi adult pal before his time. The parallel between SR and the Maharajah kid, also a kid forced into an adult role before his time, is an interesting one. Lots of lovely little comments in it too on imperialism, both political ("The British do worry about their Empire so. It makes us all feel rather like well care for children.") and cultural.
