I'm new here, so please forgive me if this post doesn't belong in this forum. But I'm a film history reseacher looking at the origin of PG-13 and how audience reactions to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (and to Gremlins) played a role in the creation of the rating. I believe this subject was raised before in a different manner on this forum, which is why I'm inquiring about it here. My main interest is in collecting testimonies from fans or others who remember going to the theater to watch TOD in 1984 and recall negative reactions to the film. Does anyone remember seeing people leave the theater during a screening? Did anyone go to see it as a child only to be taken from the theater during the movie in protest of its violent scenes (i.e. the "heart ripping" scene)? I'm looking to document these kinds of memories of the film because too often in the historical literature on PG-13, it is claimed that the film upset parents and caused a negative reaction and protest, but very little is ever offered in the way of evidence to back that up. Once again, I'm mostly interested in hearing from those who remember seeing the film during its original release in 1984. If anyone can help with this project, it would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance!
