Did You Know?


During his brief appearances as the middle-aged Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford sports a beard. This is because he was filming The Fugitive (1993) at the time his scenes were shot, and he didn't have time to shave it off. See more »


Indiana Jones - age 50: Reminds me of working my way through the University of Chicago.
Grey Cloud: You playing that?
Indiana Jones - age 50: No... no, I was a waiter.
[narrating as the scene shifts to Chicago, 1920]
Indiana Jones - age 50: But that's an art in it self. You know, you don't start at the top. You work your way up. Perfect your style. Till you are at the top, like Colosimo's Restaurant. The best food, the best service and the best jazz in Chicago. I was crazy about jazz.

Blues and Booze
18 February 2008 | by polsixeSee all my reviews

A good 90 minute show, heavy on the the blues and jazz in the first half but the actors miming the instrumentals come off as too fake. Good music and vocals though. The Indy character takes a bit of a subdued role here, after all his adventures overseas - army, POW, secret service, vampires, etc. during the war he must have wanted to go back to the simple life of being a college kid with a part-time job. In this respect the continuity of the character suffers a bit. Many "real" characters written in the story - the various musicians, Indy's roommate, his friend Hemingway, the bartender with the "scarface" and others. A big action sequence near the end with Model T's (or were they A's?, they could've run faster)...and no real ending, but a glimpse of 1920's Chicago city politics/justice.
