Young Indy Turns Old(er)

Young Indiana Jones

Twenty-three years ago, on March the 4th 1992, the world was re-introduced to the the most famous archaeologist that ever existed: Indiana Jones.

On March the 4th, we were introduced to the early years of Young Henry, where he traveled around the world with his parents and met all kinds of interesting people and on the way, maybe even changed history a little bit.

In the series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, the character of Henry (or as we came to know him: Indiana) Jones was portrayed by two young actors: Corey Carrier as Indy at age 10,

and Sean Patrick Flannery as Indy at the age between 16 and 20, and one older actor George Hall, who portrayed Indy at the age of 93, reliving all the adventures we see appearing on the TV-screen. In one of the episodes: Young Indiana Jones and the History of the Blues, Harrison Ford made a cameo as Indy.

The scenes with Harrison Ford were shot during his filming The Fugitive, that's why he is seen wearing his beard in the Young Indy episode.

A few actors from the cinematic adventures of Indy and Star Wars were also seen in a couple of episodes, such as Paul Freeman, Anthony Daniels and Roshan Seth.

Lloyd Owen portrayed the part that Sean Connery made so famous three years before: Henry Jones Sr, Indy's dad.


A variety of filmmakers (co-)wrote and directed the episodes, among them: Frank Darabont, Nicolas Roeg, Joe Johnston, Terry Jones, Carrie Fisher, Vic Armstrong and (Dutch director) Dick Maas.

Early on in his career, Dick Maas often was compared to Steven Spielberg, since he, like Spielberg in his first few years, made films (like The Lift, Flodder and Amsterdamned) that the critic's weren't always overwhelmed by, but the audiences loved.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
