    i dunno about you but when Indy ran from the natives in the beginning of Raiders, it looked like he was barely running. he could barely run like he got something stuck up his butt.

    Harrison Ford is one slow runner

    Well, it's a known fact that Ford had diarrhoea while shooting raiders :p that would explain I think :D...

    I think he would've run A LOT FASTER if he had diarrhoea in that scene...

    He actually had it in the scene where he shot the sword-swinging guy...

    Yeah I know...but I must admit he runs a little bit weird almost if he just $hit his pants :p...

    But seriously I think they just have done it this way cause the walk looks funny...and if memory serves me well young Indy in the last crusade also has this funny walk which indicates they put it in the movie on purpose...

    He did a good job of outrunning the big ball in Temple of Doom.

    That was Raiders of the Lost Ark. ;)

    Mogook,

    :) I sincerely doubt that.

    Actually, I don't think that Indy is the slowest runner in all films... it is the natives chasing him. Did you see that burst of speed that Indy put on in ROTLA... the natives were like 20 feet behind him and then BOOM they were 100 feet behind him in the next shot. ;)

    You see Ford's funny run best in "The Last Crusade", where he, and Connery are at the beach, after the car they stole crashed into a bomb-crater...

    It's more a long-striding walk than a run...

    Oh yeah, I wish they would've had big balls in Temple of Doom... [face_laugh]
