I LOVE LITTLE BOY SCOUT INDY SO MUCH. I think my favourite things about River Phoenix’s performance are that he mimics the way Harrison Ford moves his eyebrows, and the sound of his breathing when he’s playing frightened exertion.
I also like how this prologue gives us the origin of Indy’s chin scar, but also presents us with ‘Fedora,’ with a cheek scar, THE ORIGIN OF WHICH WE ARE NOT TO KNOW.
THE FEDORA CHOOSES ITS WEARER AND MARKS HIM
when ‘Fedora’ saw Indy with that cut on his chin, he knew it was time for him to pass the hat on; for him the days of fortune and glory were over
it was a bittersweet moment but he’d had a good run
